Its not exactly shocking to hear that an 11-year-old boy has already had his first kiss. But it is a little jarring to hear him praise his own abilities, at least while he’s sitting in front of his parents. But then, Jaden Smith isn’t most like most kids.
With dad Will Smith and mom Jada Pinkett Smith looking on, the youngster talked to Oprah Winfrey about his big on screen kiss in the upcoming movie, The Karate Kid.
“I did have my first on-screen kiss,” he told Oprah. “I’m good at kissing, so it wasn’t as challenging as it could’ve been had I not had previous experience.”
Wow. Somewhere out there, a 12-year-old girl is blushing. Then sending a tweet as fast as her little fingers can type, letting her friends know that everything Jaden Smith knows about kissing, he learned from her.The idea of rating my own kissing ability, as an 11-year-old, in front of my parents, still now as a 33 year old, makes me want to dive under my desk. I suppose though, that if you are a movie star kid, you probably get pretty used to doing things other kids might find embarrassing—like kissing a girl—in front of your parents. Especially if your parents produce all your movies. And at least he’s being honest. One thing’s for sure – his parents can’t claim they don’t know what he’s up to!
