Will Smith Supports Paying Higher Taxes

President Obama wants top earners to pay at least 30 percent of income in taxes.

Published May 10, 2012

Will Smith is a top-earning Hollywood star and he's all for President Obama's push for higher taxation for the wealthy. Obama's proposal involves taxing those who earn $1 million or more a year at least 30 percent of their income.

"I'm very supportive of that idea," Smith told the Associated Press. "America has been fantastic to me. I have no problem paying whatever I need to pay to keep my country growing."

And he'd be well over the $1 million a year income bracket. The actor was reportedly paid an estimated $20 million for the upcoming Men in Black III.
