AP reports high-earning movie star Will Smith is supporting President Obama's call for higher taxes on the country's top earners. Vanity Fair has reported that Smith was paid an estimated $20 million for "Men In Black III."
"I'm very supportive of that idea," Smith told AP in an interview. "America has been fantastic to me. I have no problem paying whatever I need to pay to keep my country growing."
AP added that Obama has proposed that everyone earning $1 million a year or more should pay at least 30 percent of their income in taxes. Let's assume AP didn't ask to see Smith's recent tax returns to see if the "Fresh Prince" is paying 30 percent of his income to the IRS at this time.
