Will and Jaden Smith cover New York Magazine
Will and Jaden Smith cover New York Magazine as they promote their latest film, After Earth. Here's what Will had to say when asked if his children were pushed into showbiz and if he'd be ok with Jaden being a dentist:
It may seem like we have pushed our kids into the business, but that is absolutely insane. 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. Willow chose singing and then un-chose it. She said, “Daddy, I want to go to school with my friends during the week, and I want to hang out with them on the weekends.” At the peak of “Whip My Hair,” she’s like, “Daddy, I’m done.” At the end of the day, it has to be their choice.
Jaden added in his 2 cents: He’s, like, really just cool. He lets us have our freedom as long as we can control our freedom.
