Actor Will Smith explains why he supported the idea of paying higher taxes.

"I have no issue with paying taxes and whatever needs to be done for my country to grow. I believe very firmly that my ability to sit here -- I'm a black man who didn't go to college, yet I get to travel around the world and sell my movies, and I believe very firmly that America is the only place on Earth that I could exist.  So I will pay anything that I need to pay to keep my country growing."

The interviewer then said, “Do you know how much in France you would have to pay on earnings above 1 million euros? Not 30 percent – 75 percent.”

At that point, Smith said, “75? Yeah, that's different, that's different. Yeah, 75. Well, you know, God bless America.”
