In this revealing yet charming discussion, Oprah and Smith take a deep dive into his new memoir in which Smith shares his candid thoughts on unspoken family stories, life-defining moments, self destruction, the subtle sickness of material success, moments of courage, the wisdom of a child, and the power of laughter.
