The Cannes Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world and brings out the who’s who of the A-list stars in Hollywood. This year, movie superstar Will Smith be joining the festival’s jury.

Smith has never had a movie shown at Cannes, he does however, have box office hits under his belt and he attended the festival last year. The other members of the Cannes jury include two-time Cannes winner Pedro Almodovar, directors Park Chan-wook, Agnes Jaoui and Paolo Sorrentino, along with actresses Jessica Chastain, Fan Bingbing and composer Gabriel Yard.

If you’re a fan of the actor, you know he’s all about people living life outside of their comfort zones. Recently, Smith went bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge in Zimbabwe.

Apparently, Jaden and Willow’s dad has also gone skydiving. There is currently a video of Smith, which has since gone viral on social media, discussing his sky diving experience and how everything we want is on the other side of fear.

Well said, not sure if we want to skydive, but this can certainly be applied to life in general.
