Will Smith: Jaden bigger than me

Will Smith has joked he is worried his son Jaden will become a bigger star than him.

The Men In Black star gave his 12-year-old son his acting debut playing his on-screen son in the film The Pursuit Of Happyness in 2006, and has now produced a remake of The Karate Kid with Jackie Chan which Jaden stars in.

Will said: “The Karate Kid three day box office was 56 million in the United States which was bigger than any of my movies other than Hancock and I Am Legend, so for me I’m wondering if he even still needs to live at our house.”

He added: “People started calling me the Karate Kid’s dad, I was like alright, Men In Black 3 is out immediately!”
