Will Smith and Janet Hubert had some intense rivalry amongst themselves back in the day. The two seemingly used to keep clashing each on the sets of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Hubert played Smith’s aunt on the NBC show. However, she left the show after only three seasons, seemingly because of creative differences. Over the years, Janet has made several snarky comments and thrown insults towards her former co-star.

In 2016, she dissed Smith when his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, explained their decision to boycott the 2016 Oscars. The Red Table host had revealed her disappointment of Will not receiving a nomination. Apart from the lack of black nominees and diversity as well. In a Facebook post, Janet asked Jada if her man, aka Will, doesn’t have a mouth to speak for himself – ouch. Meanwhile, Will took the chance to diss Janet in a 1993 interview.
He claimed that she’s been in the industry for years, as she says. However, she’s still jealous that he got the show (The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air). Nevertheless, 27 years forward, and it seems like Janet and Will have left their grudges in the past. The two ex co-stars reunited for the show’s 30-year reunion, which will happen on HBO Max.
Smith went ahead and posted a picture on Instagram with his Aunt Viv. Moreover, the two-sport massive grins on their face and seem to be in deep conversation. A source revealed that they all had an emotional reunion.
