Daphne Maxwell Reid who’s mainly known for playing the second Aunt Vivian on 90s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” is very happy with the man her co-star Will Smith grew into, and original Aunt Vivian, Janet Hubert, as the two reconciled a 27-year-long enmity that came from Hubert’s leaving the show.
“She is a woman that I honour for having started this wonderful show, so all I could do was treat her like I would treat anybody when I first met them, and mostly with a big hug,” she told TMZ of her time spent with Hubert during the show’s reunion, currently airing on HBO Max.
Reid also said she didn’t know there was a problem between Smith and Hubert until some years after the show ended in 1996.
“They never spoke about it, I never knew about it, all I knew is what social media was saying, and I didn’t know her, so I didn’t pay any attention to that.”
She, however, described their come-back as “growth of spirit” for Smith, who was only 21-years-old then when it all started.
“To be able to say, ‘yeah, I didn’t know, and I’m sorry,’ and for her to be able to say, ‘yeah, we were mean to each other through the press, and I’m sorry.’ To see that was the best part of the reunion for me,” she added.
