Mr. and Mr. Smith: Will and Jaden's Coolest Father-Son Moments
JUST THE TWO OF US
At the 2003 Bad Boys II Los Angeles premiere, the proud papa gives his 5-year-old Mini Me a big lift (and smile!).
DADDY DAY CARE
Jaden, who is now a Kids' Choice Awards regular, makes his first appearance on the orange carpet in April 2006 while catching a piggyback ride from his action-star dad.
The duo take time out to horse around while promoting The Pursuit of Happyness – the first movie in which they costarred together – in Germany in January 2007. But during filming, the older Smith was very serious about his mentor role. "He was teaching me along the way," Jaden told New York magazine. "This is how the camera works. You do several takes. Like, literally everything you need to know about movies."
At the 2008 MTV Movie Awards in L.A., the Smith men match up their style with similar ensembles (jackets, shirts, jeans and supercool sunglasses).
In 2009, Will gives Jaden a reassuring pat on the China set of The Karate Kid remake, which Smith's production company produced. "It may seem like we have pushed our kids into the business, but that is absolutely insane. He is making a choice from the informed," said Will about his son's career ambitions.
