Justice Smith Opens Up About People Thinking He's Will Smith's Son

Justice Smith is dishing on being confused for being related to Will Smith!

Though the two share the same last name, they are not related, and the 25-year-old actor opened up about the confusion.

“There was this video essay that I saw here someone was like, ‘Justice Smith, he’s banking off of nepotism. He didn’t work for anything that he has.’ Who do they think my father is? Then I realized it was Will Smith,” Justice told Jimmy Kimmel.

He then added that he has met Will, but he actually got really star struck by Jaden Smith on their Netflix show The Get Down.

“I worked with his son Jaden on the show I did, called The Get Down, and I don’t normally get star struck with people but I got really star struck with him,” he shared. “When I get star struck, I act like I don’t care. Like, I act really indifferent, so he was like, ‘Hey, um…’ He came to one of our rehearsals, he was like, ‘Hey, uh, great job in the rehearsal,’ and I like looked away and I was like, what am I doing?”

“But then he was so nice. He came again to set, he was like so kind,” Justice added.

Justice also talked about growing up in Anaheim and working at Knott’s Berry Farm after getting denied from Disneyland. Check out his interview here!
