Will Smith: 'I considered myself a coward!'

Actor Will Smith (53) was a guest on the show "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" with David Letterman and he talked about his past when he had drug problems, but also a difficult childhood with the abusive father who marked him. Will was at the height of his fame and fortune when his film "I Am a Legend" made a staggering $ 77 million on its first weekend of showing, but then his drug problems began.

'At that moment, I began to realize that fame and fortune are subtle diseases. When you focus on material success, nothing is enough. I haven't talked to anyone in 14 days. It helped me understand what kind of madness was going on in my head. I was on top of material wealth. I think it is the nature of humanity to understand that the material world is not enough to maintain our happiness,' said the actor who at the time used ayahuasca, a drug of African origin that he wanted to try for a long time. He explored all about opiates and went on a spiritual trip.
