Will Smith Supports Buffett Rule

The actor would not mind paying 30% of his income in taxes


The Buffett Rule — President Obama’s proposed tax plan that would require millionaires to pay at least 30% of their income in taxes — is fine by actor Will Smith.

Smith, one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors, told the Associated Press that he’s “very supportive” of the tax plan.

“America has been fantastic to me. I have no problem paying whatever I need to pay to keep my country growing,” Smith told the AP.

Forbes has reported that Smith brought home $36 million in 2011. That number is sure to go up after this year after the release of Men In Black III. The actor was paid about about $20 million for his performance in the third installment of the comedy series, Vanity Fair reported.
