Don’t compare the Kardashian family business to that of the Smith’s!
Will, Jada Pinkett Smith and their two children Jaden and Willow are one of Hollywood’s most famous families, but just because they are pursuing careers in show business it doesn’t mean that they are anything like Kris Jenner’s Kardashian Klan. In a new interview with New York Magazine’s Vulture, Smith snubs the reality family, slamming a comparison between them.
The interviewer initially asks Jaden about his rumored relationship with Kim’s little sister Kylie Jenner, mentioning that “the Kardashians have treated their fame as a family business.” Will and Jaden are asked if they see themselves as similar or different. Will started laughing at the question and held up his hand for Jaden not to speak.
“I’m trying to understand,” Jaden responds.
“Don’t,” Will instructs him. “You know, he’s never had to, to deal with those kinds of questions.”
“Well, forget the Kardashians,” the interviewer backtracks. “Maybe you could just…”
“So how do you think your life is similar or un-similar to people’s names in Calabasas?” Will responds in a “mimicking” voice.
“For our family, the entire structure of our life, our home, our business relationships—the entire purpose is for everyone to be able to create in a way that makes them happy.
“Fame is almost an inconsequential by-product of what we’re really trying to accomplish. We are trying to put great things into the world, we’re trying to have fun, and we’re trying to become the greatest versions of ourselves in the process of doing things we love.
“So the idea of fame or exploitation or orchestrating the media is sometimes even less than desirable for us.”
The Smith family have been involved in a number of controversial interviews lately, including one about the possible emancipation of Jaden.
