Hollywood superstar Will Smith celebrated his 50th birthday yesterday by bungee jumping into the Grand Canyon. The Men In Black actor opted to leap out of a helicopter in northern Arizona to mark his milestone birthday and also raise money for charity. The star appeared visibly nervous as he hovered over the canyon in northern Arizona before leaping backwards and plummeting towards the ground in a jump streamed live on YouTube.
“This is gorgeous, beautiful,” he said as he swung upside down on the end of the bungee cord. He then blew kisses to the watching crowd, which included wife Jada Pinkett Smith and kids Jaden, Willow and Trey. After landing back on solid ground the actor called the experience exhilarating. Earlier this year, YouTube channel Yes Theory challenged Will to do the jump and the actor agreed to the epic stunt in an effort to raise funds for the charity Education Cannot Wait, which provides education to children around the world during conflicts, crises and natural disasters.
