No Holding Back: Will Smith Finally Responds to Janet Hubert's Shade

His response may shock you a bit.

Jada Pinkett Smith has already shared her thoughts on Janet Hubert's shady comments, and now the main subject of it all, her husband Will Smith, is breaking his silence. While some may have wanted the Concussion actor to take a few jabs of his own, he kept it classy, saying he has nothing but love for his former TV mom.

"I think that both of the Aunt Vivs were really, really fantastic," he said during an appearance on BBC's Radio 1Xtra, via The Grio. "I think when you make a show, any time that you make a change it's going to be excruciating and painful. I think that Janet Hubert brought a really powerful dignity to the show. I think she's brilliant. I think as an artist there's so many things that she does. She sings, she dances, she's like a really powerful artist. I love what she brought to the Fresh Prince." Kudos to Will for not holding back and being unafraid to talk about his former co-star!
