Will Smith talks about 'the family business'

With his two young children serving as his co-stars in two major motion pictures in a little over one year, Will Smith makes no apologies for his family’s approach to Hollywood. The 39-year-old actor feels that introducing his kids to the profession that made he and wife Jada Pinkett Smith stars in their own right makes perfect sense.

Entertainment is our family business. It’s what we do, it’s how we eat, so at some level everyone is involved in the process.

Jada has the ultimate say-so in how their daughter Willow, 7 — currently appearing in I Am Legend — and son Jaden, 9 –who co-starred in The Pursuit of Happyness last year — are handled on-set, however. According to Will,

I’m not allowed to talk to the kids while they’re working.  Jadasays, ‘Once the movie starts you are their co-star and I am their mother. Any problems you have with those kids you can talk to their mother.’
