ETonline.com Interview

Jaden Smith and his superstar parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith joined martial arts master Jackie Chan for the big Hollywood premiere of 'The Karate Kid' Monday night, and our own Kevin Frazier got the goods about that successful Smith family dynamic! Will and Jada produced 'The Karate Kid,' in theaters Friday. Will was inclined to re-make the classic tale because "stories are generational. The whole point of a story is to tell it again." In the high-kicking film, Jaden plays Dre, a young man who moves to China with his single mom (Taraji P. Henson), only to face bullies who wipe the floor with him. The young star put blood, sweat, and tears into gaining the agility and flexibility to portray his character. Of mastering a split, his proud mama emphasized, "It's a lot of hard work, tears, lots of tears. He has the drive of his father, for sure. When he wants something, he goes and he gets it by all means necessary." Jaden said his family is a busy bunch, splitting their time between acting and music: "We work hard, we play hard."

Will and Jada: More Babies in the Future?

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith have some nice Father's Day plans, but do they also include adding to their family unit?

"I want to take him away on a golfing trip just the two of us," Jada told "Extra" at the premiere of "The Karate Kid," starring their 12-year-old son, Jaden. "There won't be any kids involved. I don't know if that's really a way to spend Fathers Day..."

"Well, we might come back with one!," Will chimed in. Jada immediately nixed that idea. "No more Smith children! We are DONE! Shop closed!" she laughed.

VIDEO!!

Will Smith's 'Karate Kid' Son Dishes on Working with Dad!

ET's Kevin Frazier talks crunches, punches and more with Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith, whose famous parents Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are the co-producers of the new 'Karate Kid'!

"So, who trains harder? You or your dad?" Kevin asks Jaden.

"Well, while we were doing this movie, he was the producer so he was, like, eating cake and stuff. You know? Stuff like that," says 11-year-old Jaden.

Jaden's starring role meant a field trip you can't believe - weeks of filming in China.

Watch the video for more on Jaden's cinematic adventure, and for Jackie's concern over re-creating such a well loved role -- Mr. Miyagi -- with his own martial arts master in the new film, Mr. Han. Then, catch 'The Karate Kid' in theaters this Friday.

Will Smith Sffered To Change Son’s Name And Hide Him

Will Smith offered to change his son’s name and hide him in Africa if he didn’t want to be famous.

Jaden Smith appeared alongside his Hollywood father in The Pursuit of Happyness and landed the lead role in a remake of Karate Kid aged just 10. Will and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith understand the pressures of being a successful actor and jokingly gave their child the chance to change his mind and live a quiet life before he began shooting his new movie alongside Jackie Chan.

"They're all about hard work, so they're like, 'Do you want to do this?'" Jaden said about his parents to the Chicago-Sun Times. "'Because if you want to be a superstar, we can make you a superstar. But we need to have hard work.'

"And I'm like, 'Yeah, I'll work hard.’ And I did... and then they're like, ‘All right, Jaden, you're about to blow up. Are you sure you still want to do this? We can change your name, hide you in Africa.' And I was like, 'Let's do it.' And this is what happened."

Jaden, now 11, also joked he settled on a career in Hollywood after his mother revealed 13-year-old girls would be swooning over him. “That’s when it got in my heart,” he laughed.

The remake of Karate Kid was predominantly shot in Beijing, China. Chan plays martial arts mentor Mr. Han, while Jaden portrays his enthusiastic protégé Dre Parker.

Will co-produced the film with Jada and he is so confident the movie will be a hit, he is already talking about Jaden reprising his role for further instalments.

"As soon as we wrapped off the set," Jaden revealed, "my dad was talking about a sequel."
