Actor Will Smith live streamed himself bungee jumping out of a helicopter to celebrate his 50th birthday.


The actor, who has starred in such action flicks as Bad Boys, Men In Black, and Independence Day, decided the best way to get over his longtime fear of heights was to jump out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon. The video was aired on YouTube.

Smith was not alone, Cheering him on was his wife wife of 21 years, Jada Pinkett Smith, daughter Willow Smith, and son Jaden Smith. Smith's Fresh Prince of Bel-Air co-star Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks, was also on the scene, to the delight of many social media users.

Smith says in the video:

I've had a whole lifetime of feeling squashed and squelched and controlled by fear. There's nothing worse than walking around scared.

We can think of one thing that is worse, bungee jumping out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon.

Here is Smith reacting to seeing the footage.

Ebony Magazine covered every moment.











But, but, but... did everyone forget Trevor?



People were happy for Smith but they were even more stoked to see Carlton in the flesh.




Lots of folks are wishing Smith the best, but nope, nope, nope.






Happy birthday Mr. Smith, but if it's okay... we think we'll keep our feet on the ground.
