Will Smith’s Kids Not Used to Daddy Being Mean

Will Smith’s kids were not used to daddy being mean in his new movie “Hancock.” In Hancock, Will swears, drinks, mouths off, and goes to prison. Will’s role is a hero-gone-bad and it could be unnerving for fans. However, Jada and his kids realize that it’s only a character and understand the whole concept. Jaden, his first son from Jada, already played opposite his dad in The Pursuit of Happyness while the youngest, Willow, can be seen in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.

According to Jada, the kids were unfazed by Will’s in-prison therapy sessions in Hancock. It’s not a new concept to them having other family members going through rehab too.
