Will Smith stars in Seven Pounds.

3 of 9
Professionally, Will's been keeping plenty busy. His latest movie is Seven Pounds, a thought-provoking film that Oprah says is a must-see. "I don't want to give too much away, but I'll tell you this," she says. "There are seven seconds in this film that will change you forever."

In the suspenseful thriller, Will plays an IRS agent with a secret. He sets out to change the lives of seven total strangers, but his plan hits a bump when he falls in love with a woman he planned to help.

Will says he was drawn to the script because of its strong message about life and loss. "I've made a decision that nothing in my life is going to be without purpose. I've grown to a place where I realize the only way to really be happy is to live in service to humanity," he says. "I want my work to mean something."
