Early Life, Family, Education and Charity Work

Jaden Smith was raised in a well known family in Malibu, California, the son of one of the most famous Hollywood actors, Will Smith, and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who is also an actress. He spent his childhood with an older half-brother from his father’s previous marriage, Trey Smith, and a younger sister, Willow Smith, who is well-known as an actress, singer and dancer. Jaden went to New Village Leadership Academy (NVLA), a private elementary school co-founded by his parents, after which he was homeschooled due to his career.

Before he became famous, Jaden worked alongside his sister as a youth ambassador for Project Zambi and Hasbro, organizations which take care of children in Zambia whose parents have passed away from AIDS.

Rise to Fame

Regarding Jaden’s acting career, it began in 2002 when he had a cameo role in the film “Men In Black II”, after which he portrayed Reggie in the TV series “All Of Us”, created by his father, between 2003 and 2006. When the filming of the TV series was ended, his breakthrough came as he was pushed by his parents to make his debut film appearance in the role of Christopher in the 2006 film entitled “The Pursuit Of Happyness”, starring alongside his father. This role brought him the MTV Movie Award for Breakthrough Performance in the following year, potentially helping to add a considerable amount to his net worth.

“The Karate Kid”

Jaden also starred in the role of Jacob Benson in the remake of the classic film from 1951 entitled “The Day The Earth Stood Still” (2008), directed by Scott Derrickson, and his next major role came in 2010, when he featured as Dre Parker in the film “The Karate Kid”, starring along with Jackie Chan and increasing enormously his popularity. This role led him to win the BET Award for YoungStars Award as well as the Young Artist Award for Best Leading Young Actor in a Feature Film, both in 2010.

Recent Years

To speak further about Jaden’s acting career, he appeared once again with his father on the big screen in the film “After Earth” in 2013, portraying Kitai Raige. Three years later, he landed the role of Curtis in the TV film “Brothers In Atlanta”, after which he was selected to play Marcus ‘Dizzee’ Kipling in the TV series “The Get Down” between 2016 and 2017, then provided the voice to the character Kaz Kaan in the animated TV series “Neo Yokio” later in 2017. Most recently, Jaden starred in the film “Skate Kitchen” (2018) and it’s been announced that he will feature in the film “Life In A Year”, so his net worth will certainly continue to increase in the forthcoming years.

Music Career

Apart from his involvement in the entertainment industry as an actor, Jaden started pursuing his career as a rapper in 2010, alongside Justin Bieber in the single “Never Say Never”, which reached No. 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Two years later, Jaden released his debut mixtape entitled “The Cool Cafe”, and its sequel “Cool Tape Vol. 2” in 2014. After that, he started working on his debut album “Syre”, which out came in 2017 and debuted at No. 24 on the US Billboard 200 chart with such singles as “Fallen”, “Watch Me” and “Batman”, while the single “Icon” peaked at No. 3 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. In July of 2018 his debut EP entitled “Syre: The Electric Album” was released, which is increasing further his fortune.

1I don't want you guys to think because I was born in America that I speak and abide by English grammar. I speak Jaden, indefinitely.

4If Kendall Jenner doesn't enjoy one of my songs it doesn't come out.
5[about his father] 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.
6I'll watch movies I like to see, Steve Jobs interviews, something that's going to make me smart and then go to sleep.
7My dad once told me, he was like, 'The only time you should lie is when someone's holding a gun to your head and says 'Okay, lie or I'm going to shoot you.'' And that really stuck with me.
8I used to not be really honest with girls and then I dropped a song called 'Starry Room' and then I started turning over a new leaf.
