Jaden Christopher Syre Smith (born July 8, 1998) is an American actor, rapper and dancer. He is the son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, elder brother of singer Willow Smith and younger half-brother of Trey Smith. His breakthrough role was in the 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness. He has also starred in the remakes of The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Karate Kid.
Early life 
Smith was born in Malibu, California. Smith and his siblings are youth ambassadors for Project Zambia, which provides assistance for Zambian children orphaned by AIDS in conjunction with Hasbro.
Smith made his major role debut in the 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness as Christopher, the son of Chris Gardner, Will Smith's character. For his role, Smith won the award for Breakthrough Performance at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards. At the 79th Academy Awards, Smith presented the award for the Best Animated Short and the Best Live Action Short, along with acting nominee Abigail Breslin. Smith next appeared as Jacob in the 2008 Scott Derrickson science fiction film, The Day the Earth Stood Still, a remake of the 1951 classic of the same name.
Jaden Smith has also recently started his own clothing/lifestyle brand called MSFTSrep, in connection to the MSFTS logo. The clothes range from hoodies and T-shirts to trousers and vests. In May 2013 Jaden Smith collaborated with a Korean designer, Choi Bum Suk, who also has his own brand called General Idea. They created a pop-up store in which customers can buy clothes with their collaborated logos.
In May 2013, Jaden and Will Smith will star in After Earth.
Personal life 
Smith is the son of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, and his younger sister is Willow Smith. Smith also has an older half-brother Trey Smith. Smith was in a relationship with Stella Hudgens, the younger sister of Vanessa Hudgens, and she is reportedly mentioned in his song "Starry Room". Smith's closest friends include Justin Bieber, Moises Arias, Mateo Arias, Sofia Richie (sister of Nicole Richie), and Kylie Jenner (it was reported that Jenner and Smith dated).
Will Smith revealed that Jaden has sought an emancipation ruling, with the consent of his parents, as a fifteenth-birthday present. Will Smith revealed to the media that Jaden's primary motivation is the establishment of his own residence and also explained that his children are not subject to strict parenting conduct: "We generally don't believe in punishment. From the time Jaden was five or six we would sit him down, and all he has to do is be able to explain why what he did was the right thing for his life." However, Jaden and his father appeared together on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on May 15, 2013 and confirmed that the matter was not a serious consideration. Jaden provided his response to the emancipation matter:
See, here's the thing you need to explain: I'm not going anywhere. The thing that people don’t get is everything at his house - is free. So I can get anything and everything that I want at his house. So I think, I'ma be there for 20, 30 more years. But he says, as soon as I have a movie that's bigger than one of his movies, then I have to get my own house.
