Jaden Smith entered show business as a pint-sized child star, courtesy of his mom and dad. He began with a number of appearances on the Smith-produced sitcom All of Us (2003), Jaden began his film debut alongside his dad in the inspirational drama The Pursuit of Happyness (2006) and additional projects followed, including a role as one of the humans who teaches alien Klaatu (Keanu Reeves) about life on Earth in director Scott Derrickson’s science-fiction remake The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008). Smith is the most bankable kid in Tinseltown. He has become the highest-paid child star in Hollywood, raking in an estimated $3 million from his role in 2010′s The Karate Kid, a remake of Ralph Macchio’s 1984 sleeper hit. Jaden was paid an upfront fee of $1 million to star in the film and has since made another $2 million in royalties after the film grossed more than $150 million at the box office.
