Will Smith may be the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but even he felt insecure about rap legend Tupac Shakur. The actor admitted Monday that his wife Jada Pinkett's lifelong friendship with Tupac was hard for him to handle. "That was a huge regret of mine. I couldn’t handle it," Smith says. "I was the soft rapper from Philly and he was Pac." He adds, "I could never open up to interact with Pac...You know, they grew up together and they loved each other, but they never had a sexual relationship." However, he also claims that Pac "had a little thing" for Pinkett once the former childhood friends grew up.
