So much for an allowance! Twelve-year-old Jaden Smith—son of Will and Jada—reportedly earned seven figures for his breakout role in the 2010 blockbuster "The Karate Kid."
Celebrity news site TMZ claims to have obtained Smith's 2009 contract for the action flick, which shows that he was paid $1 million up front to headline the movie.
As part of his deal, the pre-teen also received a $2 million bonus after the film became a blockbuster, taking in $176.6 million domestically and $359.1 million worldwide.
That brings Smith's tally to $3 million, although TMZ believes he made even more dough thanks to additional in-contract perks and the movie's international success.
Whatever the kid earned, he sure wasn't worth it. I saw him in the Karate Kid and he can't act and when he was in a scene there was a hole there, right on the screen. Check him out and laugh!
what if they were ur kids would u want other people to be saying this stuff about them i guess not so shut up and leave them alone for real
hes like 13 and willows 10 are u proud for calling them name???
Thats a picture of a boy. Heck I thought it was a girl. What boy wears lip gloss.
This is a bit off topic but I have natural male enhancement drugs available for half price (602)621-3688
That's just wrong. We could do so much good with that dough.
that is too much money for a 12 year old!!!
I whip my d!ck.
I think it's great! In the scheme of things, what's $3 mil out of over $350 million? I saw the movie and thought he did a great acting job – and nothing wrong with Will helping his son get started. No different, in my opinion, than any other dad helping their child get started in the family biz.
Sickening how much these kids get paid.
he is mad smexii
Funny thing, some people have a problem with people like that paying more taxes than us "little" people. Go figure!
is that how he affords that lip gloss?
he looks like "baby predator"
These kids are terrible at acting, at best. They are in for a rude awakening.
Will Smith and Jaden Smith are HOT!!Look at them acting on the big screen!!WHOA MOMMA!!
I bet he and his sister eat one anothers butt biscuts.
3 mill or 3 dollars the kid is still a snotty nosed brat.
He wants to be like his dad. I've seen law firms that consist of father and sons. Nothing is wrong with wanting to be like your parents especially if you are proud of their accomplishments.
how can you earn something when your parents pay for you to get a part?
