Jaden, 11, said his parents helped him with his lines and even helped him work through a knee injury, but there was one thing he didn't need any coaching to do right.
"I did have my first on-screen kiss,” he said. “I’m good at kissing, so….It wasn’t as challenging as it could’ve been had I not had previous experience." Mother Jada Pinkett Smith looked embarrassed as Will Smith added, "See, this is why you need old school parenting."
The Karate Kid is due in theaters June 11. The movie tells the story of Dre Parker, who moves to China with his parents, but finds himself bullied and homesick before maintenance man Mr. Han, played by Jackie Chan, teaches him how to defend himself with karate.
