Will Smith on His Son Jaden’s Gender Fluidity And Joins Oscar Boycott
We all remember Will Smith from hit 90s TV show The Prince Of Bel Air. Well since then Will has been a very busy actor starring in many successful films such as Men In Black, Shark Tale, Made In America and Ali to name just a few. Most recently starring in Concussion where he played a Nigerian forensic pathologist.
Earlier this week the Hitch Star had a interview with BBC Radio 1 Xtra DJ A.Dot where he addressed situations regarding his son, Jaden Smith. Dailymail.co.uk, Reports the actor explained: ‘There’s a really powerful internal quality as an artist that as parents we encourage. ‘You’ve got to get out on the edge. You have to try things, you have to be comfortable doing things people don’t agree with and you have to be comfortable with doing things that you could fail.’And Jaden is 100 per cent fearless. He will do anything. As a parent, it’s scary, it’s really terrifying but he is completely willing to live and die by his own artistic decisions and he just doesn’t concern himself with what people think.
Last month Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith announced that she would be boycotting the Oscars due to lack of black nominees. This left many of us wondering whether her husband would be doing the same. Shortly after the 47 Year old actor broke his silence and announced that he too wouldn’t be attending. The Oscars also known as the Academy Awards is due to be hold on Sunday 28th February.
We will be seeing a lot of the Father of three this year as he is set to star in two big films. Suicide Squads Superhero based film and Collateral Beauty which Is directed by David Frankel. David has directed films such as The Devil Wears Prada, Marley & Me and Hope Springs to name a few.
