He posted a photo of his family on Instagram shortly before his jump, writing: "My Squad holding me down for my big 5-0". "It's nearly like you need the terror to experience the bliss".
Will Smith has been documenting the days and months leading up to the jump.
"Life is hard, you might get hurt, your heart might get broken, you might lose your job, but you've still got to commit". But the event also raised money for charity through an online lottery for a chance to watch the jump in person.
His jump from a helicopter took place near the Grand Canyon in Northwestern Arizona.
