#SPOTTED: JADEN SMITH IN TORONTO FILMING “LIFE IN A YEAR”
Jaden Smith already is an accomplished talent at age 18 having a high-profile résumé that includes starring roles in The Pursuit of Happyness, The Karate Kid (2010) and more recently Netflix‘s The Get Down from Baz Luhrmann. The son of Hollywood royalty Will (in-town too!) and Jada Pinkett, he appears ready now for his own close-up in a big way.
In town filming the bittersweet Drama Life in a Year till late May, the Film stars also supermodel Cara Delevingne. The Film centers on a teenager who learns that his girlfriend has only a year to live, making it a mission to give her a lifetime worth of memories in that time. Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr., whose father soul singer Cuba Gooding Sr. sadly passed away just yesterday, also stars and was on-set today. Exterior scenes were filmed along the Humber River.
Smith was just at Coachella last weekend sporting his new cropped do for his role and he put out a call on Twitter to Toronto Filmmakers to get their help directing an upcoming music video he has planned; he also raps. He was seen later in the evening at the I Heart Radio Fest as part of Canadian Music Week, supporting his buddy Big Sean.
While filming a jogging scene, the low-key Smith had a quick minute to stop for fan photos. He even helped navigate me through a puddle to get over to him!
