Jaden Smith Jokes He’ll Be At His Parents’ House for ’20, 30 More Years’ on ‘Ellen’
A couple days ago it was rumored that Jaden Smith was seeking emanicpation from his parents at the ripe old age of 14. So obviously Ellen Degeneres had to ask about that when Jaden and his dear dad, Will, stopped by her show to promote their new movie 'After Earth.'
Jaden told Ellen, "I'm not going anywhere. The thing that people don’t get is everything at this house is free. So I can get anything and everything that I want at his house, so I’m going to be there 20, 30 more years." Perhaps the subject was broached in the Smith household, but Will told Jaden that if he moves out and is free and clear of mom and dad, that means no more financial assistance! (Not that he needs it anyway.)
The junior rapper and actor continued, "He [Will Smith] says as soon as I have a movie that’s bigger than one of his movies, I can get my own house." Good motivational tactic, Will! With all the smash hit movies and albums the elder Smith has had, Jaden could potentially be living with his rents forever.
Drama aside, Jaden and Will provided great entertainment for 'The Ellen Show' audience, talking about dad's penchant for embarrassing his son (stars do it too!) as well as starring in a "bonus scene" for 'After Earth' that features Ellen Degeneres herself. We'd certainly love to be a fly on the wall of the Smith household, that's for sure!
