If thereâ€™s one extremely talented kid in the family, thereâ€™s usually another, and in this case thatâ€™s beyond true. Jaden Smith is the first of Jada Pinkett and Will Smithâ€™s children together and heâ€™s found plenty of ways to live up to the family name. While Jaden made his first appearance on camera in 2003 on the family-produced show, All of Us, it was his 2006 performance in The Pursuit of Happyness, opposite his father, that brought his acting skills to the forefront of the public eye. While he appeared on the Disney Channel series, The Suit Life of Zack and Cody in 2008, and starred in The Day the Earth Stood Still the same year, it was The Karate Kid (2010) that made fans truly begin to take him seriously as an actor. The former curly-haired kid is now in post-production of his upcoming film, After Earth (2013), another major motion picture featuring he and his father.
But while acting is clearly his priority these days, Jaden has also found time to dabble in the music worldâ€”appearing on Justin Bieberâ€™s â€œNever Say Neverâ€ single in early 2010. The song reached No. 33 on Billboardâ€™s Hot 100 chart that summer. With his numerous big screen appearances and musical debut, the young Will Smith has racked up an estimated net worth $8 million.
