“I drank, and it usually takes about 45 minutes to kick in. And I’m sitting there and you always feel like, ‘Maybe it won’t work this time.’ So I’m drinking and sitting there and all of a sudden it’s like I started seeing all my money fly away, and my house was going, and my career was going, and I was trying to grab my money, and my career and my whole life. they were being destroyed. This is my fear, and I’m there, but I feel like throwing up”, Smith told the presenter David Letterman.
“I heard a voice say: ‘This is what it is, this is what life is.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, sh… and I hear Willow yelling, ‘Dad, help me, daddy, how come you don’t help me?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t see you, honey,’” she continued recounting.
“I stopped worrying about my house, I stopped worrying about my career, and it got to the point where I calmed down., and the voice is still at 100 percent; I still hear Willow scream, my money keeps flying. But I’m… totally calm, even though there’s hell on my mind.”he detailed.
The actor points out that although he felt a lot of fear, this experience left him with a great lesson. Here he understood that he is aware that everything happens and he will be able to handle it.
