Will Smith just had WAY too much fun chopping his sons dreads off for a new film role.
The actor posted a series of photos to his Facebook, and looked to be enjoying the moment a little bit too much.
Jaden however, didn’t look as pleased as he watched in horror while his dad held his decapitated dreads aloft like a trophy.
Will captioned the photos with the hilarious comment: “Getting Jaden Smith ready for the first day of filming #LifeInAYear… maybe I should’ve used scissors?!”
Jaden has had the Basquiat-style hairdo for a while now, often taking many selfies showcasing his locks. We’re sure he’s feeling the burn from the loss.
But it’s for a good cause; he’s starring in a new film alongside Cara Delevingne called Life in a Year, which follows a seventeen-year-old boy who finds out his girlfriend is dying.
He then decides to create a lifetime within the one year she has left. Will Smith is producing the film, so Jaden didn’t have much of choice in what he was going to look like in the movie it seems. Must be tough when your dad is the boss.
Having said that, it’s pretty hard to feel sorry for the dude that posts stuff like this on Twitter…
