I feel like the decision to compare these paternal Goliaths of their profession is just being mean to their offspring, but I created some arbitrary rules to make myself- and you the reader, feel better:
- Child took the name of the father; Stage or Family.
- Child entered the same field their father forged his career.
- If they hit both those notes, then it’s game on.
2 for 1 straight out of the gate..
Jaden / Willow Smith
2 for 1 straight out of the gate. In Hollywood’s greatest tale of nepotism, we have children of one of the most charismatic leading man for the last 20 years attempting to force careers in the wake of that beloved man’s path. Jaden cops the brunt because Willow had one shot at Whipping Her hair Back and Forth, then retreated. But Jaden either refuses to give up or Will refuses to let him. High hopes were around the Smith boy after his adorable turn in Pursuit of Happyness, but as soon as the world got a look at After Earth, the hounds were released. With his new ‘concept album’ in the works – we’ll either see him hit his niche or he’ll have to rely on selling his oddly branded water.
