Will Smith and his son Jaden had good time joking about each other at the New York City premiere of their film "After Earth" on Wednesday, May 29. At one point during the interview, which can be viewed above, Will asks about Jaden's "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" style haircut. "Do you know notice that Jaden has the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' haircut, but pretends like it's something new that he just came up with," Will asked his son. "See the thing with Jaden is that he's in a transition haircut so his hair looks like that because it's transitioning into something more superior," Jaden responded. The two Smiths were a part of a mini "Fresh Prince" reunion last week when Will and Jaden performed the theme song to the popular '90s sitcom on "The Graham Norton" show and were later joined by DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro for the "Carlton Dance" and a dance to "Jump on It!" by the Sugar Hill Gang. "After Earth" is a sci-fi film that hits theaters on May 31. In the movie, Will and Jaden play a father and son in the near future who get stranded on a post-apocalyptic Earth after their space ship gets damaged and crash lands. Smith's character, Cypher Raige, is critically injured and his son, Kitai, must travel across the dangerous planet to retrieve an emergency beacon in order to signal for help. The movie was co-written and directed by "The Sixth Sense" director M. Night Shyamalan. Will said the film was initially set in the present day, but jumping the story to the future opened up new possibilities. "We were sitting around, we were trying to come up with something to do together and we were thinking about father and son bonding, what kind of things happen," Smith told reporters at the premiere. "The story was originally set present day and it was a military veteran coming home and then the idea of setting it a thousand years in the future really exploded the creative and the concept." "It was great for me," Will added before asking Jaden, "Did you enjoy it or was it really hard?" "Working with Jaden is amazing," Jaden joked. "He's super professional. He's a great guy. I loved working with him." Will continued the joke and asked, "What do you think of him [Jaden] as person?" Jaden replied, "You know, he's cool. He's a little bipolar, you know he's an emotion 14-year-old but it was fun working with him. He kept it pretty professional." Jaden is Will's son with wife Jada Pinkett Smith. Will and Jada wed in December 1997 and also have a 12-year-old daughter named Willow Smith together. Will also has a 20-year-old son named Willard "Trey" Christopher Smith III from a previous marriage. Jaden previously starred in the 2010 summer hit remake of "The Karate Kid" and "The Day the Earth Stood Still. The father and son duo appeared together in the 2006 film "The Pursuit of Happyness," which also featured them in father and son roles. "After Earth" hits theaters on May 31.
