Will then asked Anita if she was retiring, and after she replied, she narrated how they met for the first time 30 years ago, when Will came for his first interview at the start of his career.

After more embraces, Anita said Will Smith had made her day, and prayed for him. Will Smith also told her to go out and have some fun, which she agreed to do. In his caption to the post, Smith wrote:

"My favorite moments on the road are the ones where I can connect with people like @anitascipio. I met her at the front desk before one of my VERY FIRST interviews of my career...and yesterday I was lucky enough to see her off into retirement 30 years ago."
