Both are looking good in this picture, and there are no differences in both guys.

GAWD this attention hunger seeking family!!!! Da F_u_ck is wrong with Will Smith & his wife? Kids should be kids and not little Illuminati b!tches. I have no respect for parents like that.

I can’t wait. I’m fans of both. It should be good. :)

Mister Shyamalan hasn’t done any good movie since…well.. Sixth Sense and maybe The Village.
And Jaden should go back to school, well home school, and wait a few years till he comes back.

If the Smiths really feel the need to be such desperate famewh0res I just wish they’d stick to famewh0ring out themselves and leave the kids out of it. Paying a blog to advertise your kids is just beyond pathetic.

Why is Will Smith promoting his kids like this? first Jaden in that KUNG FU MOVIE (That’s right it’s not Karate!) now Willow? It’s like he wants Willow to not be left out, well it’s wrong I tells ya. It’s not like they need the money.
Get them an education and wait 4 or 5 years.

Shamalamadingdong hasn’t had a hit in? ..and now he uses some well connected child ….peeU

So now M. Night has to cast Jaden because of Will Smith’s production company? Understandably, that’s how his career is now.

The last film he made that was good was The Sixth Sense… I wouldn’t watch a film of his unless the reviews were ALL positive.

And I passed on Karate Kid, Jaden was too skinny for the role.

m. night = waste of money
totally ruined my fav. avatar

She belongs on JJJunior, not here.

Why all the hate for Jaden? He’s not out robbing your house or knocking up your little girl or selling drugs to your little boy. Never saw these comments when it’s little white boys and girls getting all the movies and attention. Just a bunch of racists hating on a innocent child.

Macaulay Caulkin
Abigail Breslin
Dakota Fanning
Kirsten Dunst
Anna Paquin

Just to name a few.

@Diana: Honestly, you should’nt play the race card. It comes off as a close-minded decision. People commenting negatively on this post about Jaden Smith, do make a valid point in that The Smiths seem to be allowing their younger children to have alot of media attention at such a young age, as opposed to encouraging them to enjoy their early youth out of the spotlight. However, there have been other child stars too, which you stated, but the fact is the Smiths’ children are now the current child stars in the public eye and are vulnerable to the ‘dreaded fate’ of child stars before them.

@Diana: “Why all the hate for Jaden? He’s not out robbing your house or knocking up your little girl or selling drugs to your little boy.”

I think the only racist person here is you… obviously you have this preconceived notion that those are the things a black child should be doing… and you preach against racism, how ironic.

There are more child stars that’ve failed than succeeded, but that’s not the point. The point is that the Smith family isn’t allowing their children to gain natural fame, they’re setting up interviews and songs and movies that are way passed their own maturity level. Have you seen Willow Smith’s music video or television (specifically BET) interviews? The way they’ve entered the scene through the media isn’t natural fame, it’s obviously publicity reps and stunts that are putting them in those situations. A natural fame would be Dakota Fanning, someone who worked hard to become famous.

No one has heard of Jaden or Willow Smith until it was shoved down the throats through media from movies, songs, and interviews. It’s unnatural and a terrible way to raise children.

Someone would have to pay me (a lot) to go see that movie. I find that kid extremely irritating and self centered. Shame on her parents!!!

Wow, looks like it will be an interesting movie

jaden is the hottest. i will watch the movie

well, M. Night Shamlamadingdong butchers his last few movies and Air Bender was my last straw but I love scifi movies so I just might….pirate it. I ain’t supporting his arrogant ass.

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Fact: M.Night has made ONE.. TRULY GOOD AND SUCCESSFUL… Movie so far: the sixth sense. And everything else was kinda so-so or just simply sucked. Which is OK cuz at least hes had one masterpiece. Lotsa dir dont even have one. NOW… will this movie be good? Idk. I have no doubt about Jaden’s skills. My concern is M.Night. Will see. I’d just say that since the 6th sense stared a kid too… Maybe that’s a positive point for a start. And since apparently the Smiths are producing… that’s another good positive point. Actually, I have faith it’ll be good. But its not BECAUSE of M.Night alone. It’s because of his POTENTIAL and the package that goes with it.
