In any career it is difficult to switch gears and try something new and different. For Hollywood actors, being type casted is one of the most difficult things to shake. Will Smith went from being a hip hop super star with a hit family show becoming a 2 time Oscar nominated actor. His career has gone down many paths and perhaps as a result of his ADHD, he has been relatively successful at navigating those paths. In school, he was the “fun one who could never pay attention” but he never let that stop him. In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, he credits his inability to sit still as the very reason that his career, in both the music and film industry, has been so successful.
