When Will Smith released his book Will in the year 2021, the world got to know many intricate details about the King Richard actor’s life. In his book, the actor mentioned how the failure of the movie After Earth affected his son Jaden Smith. While talking about how Jaden felt he was misled by his own father, the Emancipation actor said,
“After Earth’ was an abysmal box office and critical failure. And what was worse was that Jaden took the hit. Fans and the press were absolutely vicious; they said and printed things about Jaden that I refuse to repeat. Jaden had faithfully done everything that I’d instructed him to do, and I had coached him into the worst public mauling he’d ever experienced.”
He further added,

“We never discussed it, but I know he felt betrayed. He felt misled, and he lost his trust in my leadership. At fifteen years old, when Jaden asked about being an emancipated minor, my heart shattered. He ultimately decided against it, but it sucks to feel like you’ve hurt your kids.”
