Will Smith had to take "two years off" of work when he realised his family "wasn't happy" with the direction he was heading in.
The 50-year-old actor helped his family achieve huge success between 2010 and 2012, with his daughter Willow topping the charts with Whip My Hair, his son Jaden starring in Karate Kid, and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith acting in TV series Hawthorne.
And whilst he believed his family were "winning", it wasn't until Willow, now 18, stood up to him and "shaved her head bald" in a protest against her hit single and chart success, that he realised his family was unhappy.
Speaking to Haute Living magazine, he said: "One of the major things that happened is that I hit that midlife-crisis point, where I've built all of the things I've ever dreamed of. And in my family - 2012 I secretly call the year of the mutiny. And 2012 was really the year that my family rejected the direction of my leadership.
"Willow was really the first person during 'Whip My Hair' that decided she didn't want to do what I said," Smith said. "Because she was the baby girl, she really had the most power over me. As a man - if your daughter says no, there's really nothing you can do.
