New Delhi, May 21 (IANS) Hollywood actor Will Smith, who features with his son Jaden Smith in “After Earth”, has advised his boy to stay away from girlfriends.
“After Earth”, directed by M. Night Shyamalan, will hit screens June 7. Apart from acting advice for the movie, Will gave his son a lot of other tips on the movie’s set too.
“Probably the best advice he’s ever given me is, ‘Don’t have a girlfriend’,” said Jaden, 14.
Will laughed off his son’s statement, and said the advice is “for now”.
“At this point, I just want him to establish his dreams, establish his desires. Find out who he is. And blending with another person is very difficult, and a lot of times you can lose yourself in that process. So my encouragement to him is to be honest with anybody that he interacts with. Don’t make commitments that a 14-year-old can’t live up to,” the worried father said in a statement.
“After Earth”, the father-son duo bring to life a strained relationship that unfolds in a world set 1,000 years in the future – after cataclysmic events have forced humanity’s migration from the planet.
