“Words can kill. I lost everything. Reputation, everything, everything. I understand you were able to move forward, but you know those words, calling a Black woman difficult in Hollywood is the kiss of death. It’s the kiss of death. It’s hard enough being a dark-skinned black woman in this business.”

She also explained her departure, stating that in real life, she was pregnant and suffering an abusive marriage. Will Smith confessed that he didn’t understand the magnitude of what she was experiencing, but does now that he has three children of his own. He added:

“I can see where I made the set very difficult for Janet.”

Janet Hubert tweeted that she was more than appreciative for the moment she and Will Smith shared.
