Keanu Reeves Claims Will Smith’s Son Jaden Smith Is Extremely Professional Despite Him Supporting Father’s Infamous Oscar Slap Incident

Despite not having appeared on the big screen for a long time now, Jaden Smith has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry.

Keanu Reeves, the legendary star of The Matrix, was one of them. Back in 2008, the two were spotted sharing a movie screen. For the then-10-year-old Jaden and the Hollywood titan, it was a wonderful experience.

Junior Smith aced a difficult audition for a role in his father Will Smith’s 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness and made his Hollywood debut.

This partnership was a resounding success, though failure would also have then followed him when they both starred together in After Earth.

However, after this, Jaden Smith continued acting with a role in the sci-fi film The Day the Earth Stood Still, starring Keanu Reeves in the main role.

The two celebrities have discussed their experiences working together in various interviews. While Reeves was greatly impressed by the talent the young star had at the time when Jaden Smith outperformed him.

Similarly, working with Reeves still holds a special significance for Smith, who is now 21 and has a career that is more heavily oriented toward music.
