Jaden Smith Bio

Born in Malibu, California on July 8, 1998 to celeb couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, you could say Jaden Smith is a ”fresh prince” of Hollywood royalty. Despite having such superstar parents, this is one kid who can definitely hold his own when it comes to acting.


Family Affair

It didn’t take long for Jaden to catch the acting bug from his mom and dad. At the age of five he made his debut on the WB TV sitcom All of Us, co-created and co-produced by his parents. He played Reggie, while his older half-brother Trey Smith played Darryl.


Jaden and Trey also have a younger sister named Willow who acts.



Happy Times

In 2006 Jaden made his film debut in the Sony release The Pursuit of Happyness, playing his father's son. When Will was reading the script prior to shooting, Jaden asked what it was about. After hearing the story, he expressed interest in playing the boy.


His father explained that he'd have to audition for the role, just like anyone else, so he did, and made the first cut. "I was in his corner, but I didn't have his back. He earned the job himself, and that's the way it's supposed to be," Will said in an interview.


The filmmakers looked at 100 kids during the audition process. Producer Jason Blumenthal said: "Then we met Jaden Smith and it was night and day. Jaden was this kid. He came in with sincerity, honesty and rawness. We cast the absolute best person for the job."
