When I first read this, I thought maybe he was misquoted or his remarks were taken out of context... but this story is all over the web now.. not sure what to think about this? http://www.hollywood.com/news/Smith_Hitler_Was_a_Good_Person/5024607 Smith: 'Hitler Was a Good Person' HOLLYWOOD - Will Smith has stunned the world by declaring that even Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler was essentially a "good" person. The I Am Legend star, 39, is determined to see the best in people, and is convinced the former German leader did not fully understand the extent of the pain and suffering his actions would cause during his time in power in the 1930s and '40s. He says, "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." Hitler's totalitarian leadership as Fuhrer during 1934 until his eventual suicide in 1945 resulted in the persecution of an estimated six million Jews in the Holocaust, and his invasion of Poland in 1939 led to the start of the Second World War.
