Jaden Smith stars in "The Karate Kid" (2010) as Dre Parker.

It's no wonder to anyone that the acting bug bit Jaden Smith early. He comes by it naturally. Jaden is the 11-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. But Jaden need not rely on his family ties. The youngest Smith son is creating quite the buzz in Hollywood on his own.

Smith has already been presented with the 2010 ShoWest "Breakthrough Male Star of the Year" Award for his role in "The Karate Kid."

He was last seen on screen in 2008, starring opposite Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly in the highly anticipated sci-fi remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still." Directed by Scott Derrickson, the 20th Century Fox blockbuster gave Jaden an opportunity to explore his love for science fiction while also sharpening his craft. Jaden won the 2009 Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Young Actor for his role in the film.

In 2006, Jaden wowed audiences with his heartfelt interpretation of a young Chris Gardner Jr. in Columbia Pictures' "The Pursuit of Happyness." Oprah Winfrey described his debut film performance as "mesmerizing." This dynamic performance garnered Smith an MTV Movie Award for Breakthrough Performance, a Phoenix Film Critics Society Award for Best Performance by a Youth in a Lead or Supporting Role - Male, a Black Reel Award, and nominations by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the NAACP Image Awards and the Teen Choice Awards.

In between films, Jaden has appeared on the Disney smash hit TV series "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody." He had his television debut on the Smith family-produced series "All of Us" at the age of five.

Smith is not only a talented young actor, he is also a philanthropist serving as a youth ambassador, alongside his sister Willow Smith, for the organization Project Zambi in conjunction with Hasbro, Inc. and the Hasbro Children's Fund. Project Zambi helps children orphaned by AIDS in Africa.
