Jada Pinkett Smith says Fame has “always been a part” of Jaden’s life

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t worried about the impact movie stardom is having on her 11-year-old son Jaden, now that he’s the title star of “The Karate Kid,” opening tomorrow (6/11). Fame, she notes, “has always been a part of his life. For him, it’s not anything different. Yes, the focus and attention is on him now, but he’s just like, ‘Okay.’ He’s a very mellow, introverted cat who takes everything in stride.”

Daughter Willow, on the other hand, “is explosive. She’s all energy. She’s like her father in that way – very, very extroverted. They’re both kind of layered with both of our personalities,” she says of herself and husband Will. “My son is more like me in how he deals with fame, but he’s very much driving with his career, like his father. Our daughter I would say deals with the public like Will does, but her creative sensibilities are very much like mine, very unconventional.”

The nine-year-old – who has a music project of her own coming out in late summer – latched on to China in a big way when the Smith family was in that land for three months last year while Jaden was shooting “Karate Kid” with Jackie Chan.
