Like a scene out of a high-octane action movie that he would star in, WILL SMITH celebrated his 50th birthday by successfully bungee jumping from a helicopter near the Grand Canyon.
Cameras, which captured the stunt for a livestream on YouTube , showed the actor hooked to a harness and bungee cords dangling over a gorge in northeastern Arizona.
He described the experience as going “from pure terror to absolute bliss.”
The entire event had the feel of a polished episode of reality TV. Camera crews showed Smith, wife Jada Pinkett Smith and his three children being greeted by dozens of relatives and friends on a platform. The stunt was billed as a leap “in the heart of the Grand Canyon.” But the jump was outside Grand Canyon National Park on the Navajo Nation. The tribe’s reservation borders the east rim of the national park.
