Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith and their children, Jaden, 13, and Willow, 11, showed up at the premiere of Men in Black 3 at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City on Wednesday (May 23).
The family are known for dressing funky. Willow wore a Nightmare on Elm Street shirt under a white with black trimmed jacket. Her mom was more elegant in a black dress with plunging neckline.
The 43-year-old actor recently told Shortlist magazine that his kids are savvy when it comes to fame.
He said, “Do I worry about Willow and Jaden? No, they were born into that world. They’re on the internet all the time, so they know the game. They know where to go, what to say. They’re far more savvy.”
Of course there are going to be things that are hurtful and self-esteem issues, like we all have, but I grew up in a neighborhood where I saw a guy get shot and take nine bullets to the chest, so Hollywood is a far safer experience than where I grew up.”
As for work – Will says he’s been at home more working on production projects.
He said, “Willow’s doing her music and whipping her hair, Jaden’s got a TV show. And daddy’s been sort of producing at home. But everyone’s really ready for daddy to go back to work now.”
