Jaden Smith was born rich. The son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will never have to beg for money. However, Jaden Smith is now rich on his own. According to online reports, Jaden Smith has made at least three million dollars for the Karate Kid movie. If the movie keeps being a big hit, he could get as much as $20 million for his part. Not bad for a 12-year-old.
Obviously, his dad was the reason he landed the role. In fact, his dad is the reason the movie was remade in the first place. But give Jaden Smith credit, he did a decent enough job in Karate Kid to make it gross more than $150 million in the United States alone. Worldwide, Karate Kid has grossed over $360 million!
Since Karate Kid, Jaden Smith was in the Justin Bieber flick “Never Say Never”. He’s also set to star in “Amulet”, a movie that will be released in 2012. If he stays grounded and works at his craft, Jaden Smith could very well be a superstar for the next generation. And he can also continue getting very, very rich.
