Speaking with Celebuzz, Will Smith says he’s teaching his son, Jaden Smith, everything he knows about being a superstar entertainer.

On his son, Will said:

“Jaden is probably the one of my kids who looks at me like I’m meat.”

“He’s like, ‘I’m coming for you. You have no idea!’ He’s looking across the dinner table at me.”

“I tell him all the time, ‘Son, listen. I’m going to teach you everything I know. You’ll work hard and, y’know, you’ll be the second biggest movie star in the world!”

As for his own celebrity, Smith acknowledges that it took a second for him to ease back into the craft after taking a break from acting for so long:

“I haven’t worked in years, so I wanted to put on some shoes that fit,” Smith said of reprising his role of Agent J in the MIB series. “When you stay away from acting for awhile, it’s like a muscle. You get out there and you look stupid. You’ve got to warm up a little bit.”

Smith also noted that he has five projects in the works in which he’s listed as a producer — and most feature himself or Jaden as the lead.

On his role as a producer:

“My most natural lane is producing. I learned a lot of valuable lessons on The Karate Kid. Working on a remake is interesting in that you start with hindsight, so for me that was very informative.”
