Almost two months ago Will Smith’s life changed completely. The actor attacked Chris Rock in full direct from the Oscars gala, after he made a joke about his wife. For weeks there was a debate about whether he was right or wrong, until he himself recognized his mistake and asked for forgiveness.
Since then he seems to have moved away from the media spotlight and has come to be in a psychological retreat in search of help. When it seemed that the subject was more than closed, the presenter David Letterman has published an unpublished interview that he did before the awards ceremony.
In it they talk about various topics, but the story of the actor’s experience when he tried ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic plant whose sale and consumption are prohibited in countries like Spain, has been surprising. This plant usually causes great hallucinations and is traditionally used medicinally by indigenous tribes of the Amazon.
The actor performed a ritual with a shaman who helped him on the “journey” and describes it as “the most hellish psychological experience of my life.” Smith had a hallucination where everything he had in life disappeared and he couldn’t do anything about it.
“I started to see how my money was flying through the air. And I was trying to grab my money and my career, but my whole life was being destroyed,” she recounted. He acknowledged to the presenter that this seemed to be the biggest fear of him, but in the dream, he was overshadowed by an older, suffering daughter Willow.
“I heard a voice that told me: ‘That’s life’ and I started to scream and I heard my daughter Willow crying: ‘Daddy, help me!’, but I couldn’t see her,” she said. Finally, she relaxed, closed her eyes and took a deep breath until it was all over.
The actor acknowledged that this taught him that he can handle everything in life. “I can handle any loss, I can handle anything that goes wrong in my life, I can handle anything in my marriage. I can handle anything life has to offer me,” he assured.
