Childhood and Youth

Jaden Christopher Syre Smith was born on July 8, 1998, in Malibu, California. Jaden's father is actor, musician, and director Will Smith ("Seven Pounds", "Men in Black", "I Am Legend"). His mother is American actress, singer, producer, director, and entrepreneur Jada Pinkett Smith. Jaden has a younger sister, Willow (born in 2000), who is a singer and actress, and a half-brother Trey (born in 1992), who is an actor and DJ.
Jaden received his primary education at the New Village Leadership Academy and later switched to homeschooling along with his sister. It wasn't easy for the boy to interact with his peers, who were well aware of his famous parents and their success in the film industry. Now, Jaden actively promotes homeschooling and urges people to drop out of traditional school.


Jaden Smith first found himself on a film set while still in his mother's womb. Jada Pinkett-Smith, in the late stages of pregnancy, appeared in her husband's music video for "Just the Two of Us" (1998), alongside father-in-law Willard, younger brother Trey, and two sisters. At the age of four, Jaden was again in his father's music video for "Black Suits Comin' (Nod Ya Head)", a track included in the "Men in Black II" (2002) soundtrack. In 2004, Jaden appeared in several episodes of the TV series "All of Us", produced by his father, but his real success was still ahead.

In 2006, the biographical drama "The Pursuit of Happyness" by Gabriele Muccino was released - about a man who went from a poor salesman to a successful manager. The aspiring broker could secure a profitable contract that would end all his financial troubles, but meanwhile, he and his little son have to sleep on the street, but the man must show up at the office in full parade every day.

Will Smith played the leading role, and Jaden, respectively, played the son of the homeless broker. Although the child in the story is 5 years old, Jaden was already 8 years old at the time of filming. The film was warmly received by audiences and critics, and the young actor was honored with three prestigious awards at film festivals.

In 2008, Smith landed his second leading role in Scott Derrickson's science fiction drama "The Day the Earth Stood Still" about an alien invasion of Earth. With the lead actor, Keanu Reeves, Smith had been acquainted before filming: the boy's mother played in the sequels of "The Matrix", where Reeves also starred.

Smith played a boy from Detroit who is bullied by his classmates and learns to stand up for himself using martial arts. The film received rave reviews and high ratings from critics, who were no longer doubting Smith's talent.

A grown-up Jaden appeared in 2013 in M. Night Shyamalan's science-fiction disaster film "After Earth". According to the plot, the spaceship of the father (Will Smith) and son (Jaden Smith) crashes on the abandoned by humans earth. To fly back, they have to fight wild monkeys, poisonous leeches, and the alien predator Ursa. This film received much lower ratings than "The Karate Kid", and many negative reviews, which also concerned Jaden's performance. The young man was accused of lacking talent and gaining "quick fame due to his famous father".

A more successful project for Smith was the dramatic TV series "The Get Down", set in the South Bronx in the 1970s, during the rise of hip hop and disco. The narrative revolves around a group of teenagers, one of whom was played by Jaden.

  • I think this is the case when the father is really talented but the son is not very much. I think he should do something else, sing a songs for example.
