Actor and 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant Gilles Marini told Bonnie Hunt that he owes his career to none other than Will Smith, who he encountered in a hotel restaurant while working as a waiter. Smith, who was in town at the time training for 'Ail,' encouraged Marini to pursue his dream of acting, he said on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

"He gave me a boost. [He said], 'If you dream of something ... Los Angeles is the right place to go.' And, I thought, 'Hey, why not?' I just moved out and now it's history. I guess it worked out," Marini said.
