1. “Even Hitler didn't wake up going, ‘let me do the most evil thing I can do today.’ I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was ‘good.’ Stuff like that just needs reprogramming. … I wake up every day full of hope, positive that every day is going to be better than yesterday. And I'm looking to infect people with my positivity. I think I can start an epidemic.”

—Will Smith

Source and Related Info: As quoted in "Will Smith : My Work Ethic Will Make Me A Legend" by Siobhan Synnot in Daily Record (22 December 2007)
• This was reported in various new stories as if Smith had declared that "Adolf Hitler was essentially a good person."
• Smith responded to such misinterpretations in further statements:
• It is an awful and disgusting lie. It speaks to the dangerous power of an ignorant person with a pen. I am incensed and infuriated to have to respond to such ludicrous misinterpretation. … Adolf Hitler was a vile, heinous, vicious killer responsible for one of the greatest acts of evil committed on this planet.
 • "Will Smith Explains Hitler Quote" by Karen Salkin in People (26 December 2007); Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League accepting Smith's clarifications stated: "If anything, this episode serves as a reminder of the power of words, and how words can be twisted by those with hate and bigotry in their hearts to suit their own world view."

2. “It's great to be black in Hollywood. When a black actor does something, it seems new and different just by virtue of the fact that he's black.”
