Shamontiel is the author of two novels: "Change for a Twenty" and "Round Trip." Check her out at shamontiel.com.

Will Smith, known for million-dollar movies like "Independence Day," "Hitch," "Bad Boys 1-2" and "I Am Legend" and "I, Robot" was nervous. Who would think that the star of the '90s TV sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" could be nervous in front of a camera? But he was nervous last week during a meeting, even with his wife at his side. Why? Because he was interviewing President Barack H. Obama.

Will Smith stated, "This is the first time I've been nervous in front of a camera in a long time."

Obama's response? "Just think back to Prince of Bel-Air, man."

Jada Pinkett-Smith, most popularly known as Lena James from "A Different World," the voice of the hippopotamus on "Madagascar" and the star of the show "HawthoRNe," seemed at ease. Check out the Smiths' interview with Obama on a Nobel Peace Prize speech comment "expanding our moral imagination," Internet communication, putting yourself in someone else's shoes and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Thanks for the scoop, Montie.

I heavily doubt that Will Smith is only nervous when he's interviewing a President. He gets nervous when they ask him to play a different character for a change.

I'm guessing you're not a Will Smith fan. He actually seems like a natural onscreen. He wasn't the same character on "Fresh Price of Bel-Air," "Hancock," "Hitch" or "Bad Boys 1 & 2." Even "I, Robot" and "Independence Day" were different characters so what makes you think as you do? I think his versatility is impressive. He played Muhammad Ali well too.
