There's a reason Janet Hubert wasn't part of the recent Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion: she can't stand Will Smith.

"There will never be a reunion as I will never do anything with an a--hole like Will Smith," Hubert, 55, snipes to TMZ. "He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up."

(Smith was recently photographed with former costars Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Alfonso Riberio and James Avery at a charity event. Hubert and several other cast members, including Joseph Marcell, were not present.)

Hubert blames Smith, 44, for her 1993 mid-series departure from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air; she was replaced by actress Daphne Reid. "This constant reunion will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology," Hubert says. "He doesn't know the word."

Smith has refuted Hubert's claims that he was responsible for her firing, once telling an Atlanta radio station: "She's mad now but she's been mad all along. She said once, 'I've been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.' No matter what, to her I'm just the AntiChrist."
