Will Smith may seem like the kind of dad with whom you can spend your time chillin’ out, maxin’, relaxin’ all cool, but when it comes to handing down life lessons, he’s got the same ideas as any normal parent. Bummer.
After clearing up that he has no plans to be emancipated from his awesome parents, Jaden revealed to E! News what kind of things he and his famous dad actually talk about when they have one-on-one time.
“Probably the best advice he's ever given me is, 'Don't have a girlfriend,'" said Jaden. "The stress is real."
Will, who stars alongside Jaden in the new sci-fi thriller After Earth, admits that he has suggested a girlfriend-free policy, but only hopes that 14-year-old Jaden will take the no-dating idea under consideration “for now.”
"At this point, I just want him to establish his dreams, establish his desires, find out who he is," said Will. "Blending with another person is very difficult, and a lot of times you can lose yourself in that process. So my encouragement to him is to be honest with anybody that he interacts with. Don't make commitments that a 14-year-old can't live up to."
It sounds like Will's an even sweeter dad than we thought. Now who's chopping onions in here?
