Will Smith Reveals If He Regrets Pushing Willow Smith And Jaden Smith Into Show Business As Kids

Will Smith is opening up about the impact his kids’ success in the mid 2000s had on his family’s happiness. The Oscar winner was on the latest episode of Kevin Hart’s Peacock show “Hart to Heart” where he got candid about how he handled his children’s early careers in the entertainment industry. Will shares 25-year-old Jaden Smith and 22-year-old Willow Smith with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. He is also dad to 30-year-old Trey Smith. Willow and Jayden have been in the public eye from a young age, releasing music and starring in movies in the mid 2000s when they were teens. When Will looks back at that time, he tells Kevin it was a highlight of his career and as a parent. However, the success started tearing his family apart, causing a rift between him and Willow. Once Will realized his family’s success wasn’t making anyone happy, the “King Richard” star says he started to reflect, study psychology, and go to therapy.
