Name: Jaden Christopher Syre Smith
Born: 8 July 1998
Occupation: Actor, Rapper, Dancer, Songwriter
Jaden Smith is the son of actress Jada Pinkett Smith and actor/musician husband Will Smith. His older half-brother Trey is from his father’s first marriage and he has a younger sister named Willow, who is a singer. He got his first taste of acting in a cameo appearance in Men in Black II, a film his dad was starring in. His first real acting job came in The Pursuit of Happyness starring alongside his father again. For his role of Christopher he was nominated for seven awards and won three.
His next movie was The Day the Earth Stood Still (co-starring Jennifer Connelly and John Cleese) for which he won a Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Young Actor. In 2010 he starred alongside Jackie Chan in the remake of The Karate Kid for which he was nominated for nine awards and won two: BET Award for Young Stars Award and the Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Feature Film – Leading Young Actor. He has two movies slated for release in 2013.
In addition to his movie roles he has been in two television shows and two music videos. Like his dad, he has also ventured into the music arena. He has released a number of singles and has been featured on four songs by Justin Bieber. With a variety of work at such a young age, it seems as if he will be following closely in his father’s footsteps artistically as well as financially. We estimate Jaden Smith to have a net worth of $8,000,000 (GBP 4,960,000).
So how much is $8 million dollars really?
Since Jaden has shown such an interest in music, we think he may like to buy a Yamaha IM8-40 Mixing Console with Power Supply to get his groove on. At only $2,499 he could buy 3,201 of them. Or come to think of it, he could probably just use his dad’s stuff. So maybe Jaden would like to impress the young girls with a nice ride here in little over a year when he gets his driver’s license. We’re thinking an Aston Martin One-77 would be pretty impressive, and with a price tag of just $2.3 million, he could buy three of them and still have enough money to take her to see one of his movies.
