LOS ANGELES (AP) -- One of the biggest stars in Hollywood is sending a message across the country to Washington -- feel free to raise taxes on the rich. Will Smith says he supports President Barack Obama's call for higher taxes on those who earn the most money in this country. Smith says: "America has been fantastic to me." And because of that, he says he has "no problem paying whatever" is needed to keep the country growing. Obama has proposed that everyone earning $1 million a year or more should pay at least 30 percent of their income in taxes. One research group said the change would affect around 210,000 taxpayers. Looks like Smith would fit in that category. Vanity Fair reports he was paid about $20 million for his latest film, "Men In Black III."
