Khaby Lamewho has just dethroned Charlie D’Amelio as a top TikTok star, says acting has always been his ultimate goal … and hopes a movie with Will Smith is in his future.
We caught up with Khaby with his project manager — who translated his Italian — in Beverly Hills where he told us that TikTok fame has him looking for his acting break, and yes … he wants to do it big Willie style.
He says “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” was an early inspiration for him, so a gig with Will would really bring things full circle.
About Will’s Oscar slap since the beginning of this year, Khaby tells us that he still respects him as an actor. He believes people deserve second chances, and if Will wants a comeback, Khaby would be honored to be a part of it.
The guy amassed over 145 million followers on TikTok, surpassing every other creator on the platform, despite the fact that he doesn’t speak in his posts. He explained why keeping quiet really played a big part in his success.
I have to say it works for him — Khaby’s quiet comedy and universal body language make millions laugh around the world.
As for Charli, now the #2 TikToker, Khaby met her — proudly snapped a photo — and says she’s extremely talented and deserves all the love and support in the world … and it sounds like she might be a cooperation the horizon. 👀
