Acting Pedigree

Jaden Christopher Syre Smith was born in Los Angeles, California on July 8, 1998. Smith has a stellar acting resume. Will Smith, his father, is one of the world’s most successful and popular actors, having appeared in films such as Independence Day, Men in Black, and Ali. His mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, is a successful actress who has appeared in films such as The Nutty Professor, The Matrix trilogy, and Girls Trip. Despite their celebrity, Smith’s parents tried to provide him with a normal upbringing.

Jada Pinkett Smith stated in an interview that she wanted Jaden and his siblings (older half-brother Trey and younger sister Willow) to “see the reality of life and have a normal experience of having to stand in line and get tickets.”

The Smith children volunteered at orphanages and nursing homes on a regular basis and donated their belongings to charity. “My kids are very willing to give things away because they realize they have so much; they don’t have to hoard,” their mother once said.

Smith studied with a tutor and, despite his acting career, experienced the normal joys and sorrows of any young boy. He referred to himself as a “mama’s boy,” but he complained that his younger sister bullied him, with their parents always siding with her.

Films and TV Shows

‘The Pursuit of Happyness’

Smith had a second life as an up-and-coming Hollywood star alongside his seemingly normal childhood. At the age of six, he made his acting debut on All of Us, a UPN show created by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and based on their own blended family.

Jaden made his big screen debut not long after in the film The Pursuit of Happiness (2006). The Pursuit of Happiness is based on a true story about Christopher Gardner, a homeless salesman whose intelligence and perseverance lead to him becoming a wealthy stockbroker.

Jaden played Gardner’s son, Christopher Jr., who is forced to live on the streets with his father, opposite his real-life father. For his nuanced and heartwarming performance, the young Smith received universal acclaim. The New York Times described him as “extremely likable,” and he won an MTV Movie Award for Breakthrough Performance.

‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’

Smith struck out on his own in 2008 to make his first appearances in projects that did not involve his parents. In April of that year, he appeared as a guest star in an episode of the popular Disney Channel show The Suite Life of Zach and Cody. Following that, he co-starred with Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly in a remake of the classic science fiction thriller The Day the Earth Stood Still, for which he received a Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor.

Success with ‘The Karate Kid’

Smith’s biggest role to date came in 2010, when he co-starred with Jackie Chan in a remake of the 1984 coming-of-age classic The Karate Kid. Smith portrays Dre Parker, a 12-year-old Detroit native who travels to China to study martial arts with a kung fu master in order to confront the bullies who torment him.

The film was a box-office success, and Smith received praise for his outstanding acting and kung fu skills. “He put my son to shame!” Chan said of Smith’s dedication to his martial arts training. Smith also dabbled in music in conjunction with his work on the film, co-writing the official theme song, “Never Say Never,” with pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Smith developed the physique of a much older boy after months of intensive martial arts training, and he also earned a reputation as a lively and witty interview subject. (“Do you know how to sew? I’m ripped,” he joked to an interviewer.) Will Smith, Father, admitted, “This kid is more amusing than I was when he was his age. He did, however, have me as a father.”

Smith had achieved levels of success that most actors only dream about by the time he was 12 years old. All three of his films had debuted at the top of the North American box office, and he appeared poised to follow in his parents’ footsteps to Hollywood stardom.

Poor Reviews for ‘After Earth’

Smith reunited with his father in 2013 to co-star in After Earth. The film is a sci-fi coming-of-age story about the younger Smith learning survival skills as he races to save himself and his father on a futuristic, inhospitable Earth.

This time, both the film and its young star were panned by critics, and he “won” the Golden Raspberry for Worst Actor. Some critics thought the film was an entertaining spectacle, and Smith was nominated for Summer’s Biggest Teen Bad Ass Star at the MTV Movie Awards. Nonetheless, the experience appears to have soured him, resulting in a lengthy absence from the big screen.

‘The Get Down,’ ‘Skate Kitchen’

Smith returned to series television in 2016 with The Get Down, a drama about the late 1970s rise of hip-hop and disco in New York City. In 2018, he appeared in Skate Kitchen, a film based on the true story of a group of female skateboarders.

Music Career

Following his collaboration with Bieber, Smith released a couple of mixtapes, The Cool Cafe and Cool Tape Vol. 2.


Smith released his first studio album, Syre, in November 2017, with contributions from ASAP Rocky and Willow. The hip-hop-themed collection received favorable reviews and peaked at No. 24 on the Billboard 200 on its way to gold certification. Smith released Syre: The Electric Album on Instagram on July 8, 2018, to commemorate his 20th birthday.


Later that year, the artist released The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story before releasing the EP Erys Is Coming in April 2019. He delivered the full-length album Erys in July 2019, as promised, shortly after the release of the single “Again.”
