Will Smith: Don’t Compare My Family to the Kardashians

Will Smith is looking out for son Jaden, both on-screen and off.
Vulture recently sat down with the "After Earth" stars, and asked the father-son duo if they see themselves similar to - or different than - the Kardashians, in the sense that they treat their fame as the family business.
Will, laughing, held up his hand for Jaden not to speak: "Don’t. You know, he’s never had to, to deal with those kinds of questions."
"'So how do you think your life is similar or un-similar to people’s names in Calabasas?'" Will asks back to the interviewer seemingly "mocking" them. "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."
Continued the elder Smith:
"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."
