This is all your fault, Will Smith tells son
WILL Smith has branded his son a ‘useless little toad’ after the failure of their science fiction film.
Box office flop After Earth featured the father-son duo ‘teaming up’ as space travellers marooned on a post-apocalyptic planet.
Smith said: “Watching the movie back, I realise it’s pretty great apart from my teenage son.
“There are big emotional scenes where I’m totally nailing it and it’s like he doesn’t even give a shit, he’s drifting off thinking about girls or snack foods.
“Honestly, you put them in a $160 million sci-fi blockbuster and this is how they repay you. Fuck all this ‘cool dad’ shit.
“We’re not friends any more. I don’t even have a son, he’s dead to me now.”
Smith revealed plans to cast Jaden in The Fresh Meat of West Philadelphia, a riches-to-rags sitcom about a boy sent to live with his pimp uncle and crack whore aunt.
He said: “Jaden’s life gets ‘flipped around, turned upside down’ and not in a good way as he is pursued by junkies and forced to live on bits of stale bread he steals from pigeons.
“Basically he gets exactly what he deserves.”
