Will Smith admitted that he once thought about killing his father after watching him physically abuse his mother.
His father Willard Carol Smith Jr. was ill with cancer at the time and Will was only 13.
"That when I was big enough, when I was strong enough, when I was no longer a coward, I would slay him," he wrote in his memoir in a snippet given to ET Canada. "I paused at the top of the stairs. I could shove him down, and easily get away with it. I'm Will Smith. No one would ever believe I killed my father on purpose. I'm one of the best actors in the world."
WILL SMITH ON IG LIVE W/ HIS FAMILY
"My 911 call would be Academy Award level. As the decades of pain, anger, and resentment coursed then receded, I shook my head and proceeded to wheel Daddio to the bathroom."
He did not do it. His memoir is out next week on November 9.
