Will Smith is doing everything he can to help his son become a major star just like himself. Celebuzz reports that Will Smith understands that his son is eager to reach his level of success. Smith tells his son, “Listen. I’m going to teach you everything I know. You’ll work hard and, y’know, you’ll be the second biggest movie star in the world!” Although papa Smith hasn’t been on the big screen in four years, he currently has five projects underway which includes him as a producer and they all either star himself or Jaden in the lead role.

After taking a four-year acting hiatus, Will Smith is finding some tough competition in Hollywood — particularly from his son, Jaden Smith.

“Jaden is probably the one of my kids who looks at me like I’m meat,” the actor, 43, told Celebuzz at a Men In Black III press preview. “He’s like, ‘I’m coming for you. You have no idea!’ He’s looking across the dinner table at me.”

How does Will respond to his 13-year-old competitor?

“I tell him all the time, ‘Son, listen. I’m going to teach you everything I know. You’ll work hard and, y’know, you’ll be the second biggest movie star in the world!”

“What’s great for me is that the target audience is in my house,” he explained about his other children: Willow, 11, and Trey, 19. “So I get to scene by scene, screenplay by screenplay, run it by the judges.”
