Jaden Smith deeply admires his father, Will Smith.
The 16-year-old actor recently sat down for an interview where he opened up about his relationship with the Pursuit of Happiness star, reports Cover Media.
Although most fans are familiar with the comical side of the famed Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star, Jaden decided to share details about the man behind closed doors. He even revealed his father has a philosophical side.
“My dad is pretty much a philosopher. Nobody really knows the extent of how smart my dad is, and all the things he knows, except the people that have met him,” Jaden said.
“He knows so many things; he’s into mathematics, so when he sees me getting into maths and sees me building, working power tools and learning how to cut angles he’s like, ‘Wow,’ and that makes me feel really good.”
The After Earth actor, who starred in the film with his father, also credits his success to both his parents. He insists their parenting, work ethic and talents have made him into the “amazing person” he is today.
However, his parents aren’t the only people he’s fond of. He’s also thinks highly of his younger sister Willow. He went on to dish about the “Whip My Hair” singer and admitted that he’s usually blown away by his sister’s talent.
“I love the topic of love. I think teenage love is so crazy, so blind and so awesome that I’m glad Willow is here to express to us what it’s like to fall in love at whatever age Willow is,” he gushed.
“I don’t know what age she is, because she’s too smart to even have an age. I can’t express love, teenage love, or what it’s like to fall in love with somebody in one day. I’m glad there are people in the world that can express that.”
