I write when I’m mad, when I’m upset, when I’m confused, when I want to tell someone something but don’t feel like being vulnerable. The past few days I’ve been writing and writing, and somehow, even if I start on the totally different topic, I always end up linking my feelings, my thoughts, the things I want to say to you but, I write instead, so I’m not vulnerable, because being vulnerable with a person, gives them all the power, the power to hurt you, and being vulnerable can really suck.
From what I’ve heard, Will Smith’s father actually left him. This wasn’t entirely scripted. Will went off on his own rant, and the hug at the end was genuine.
His character was just supposed to shrug off his dad leaving again and he starts to but then Will goes off script. That whole speech is coming entirely from him. The hug at the end is also genuine, actor to actor not character to character.
