Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith posed with their kids Trey, 20, Jaden, 14, and Willow, 12, at the premiere of After Earth at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City on Wednesday (May 29). Will and Jaden costar in the sci-fi action film, based on a story idea by Will and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
Will joked to PopSugar that his son did “a lot of the stunts and action [in the film], but I am still taking most of the money.”
The actor went on to talk about the strong environmental message in the film. “[There’s the message that] if you take care of the earth, the earth will take care of you,” Will said.
Will has also addressed his kids’ fame and fortune.
“It may seem like we have pushed our kids into the business, but that is absolutely insane,” he said. “I would never, ever, push somebody to have their face on a poster that’s going be everywhere in the world. He is making a choice from the informed. It’s less scary to me than if he wanted to be a dentist in that I couldn’t help with what he’d chosen. I have relationships with some of the biggest filmmakers and actors and producers on Earth. So I can be a huge help.”
