Jaden Smith’s resemblance to his mom, Jada Pinkett Smith, is uncanny!
Earlier this week, the 45-year-old actress shared a side-by-side pic of her 19-year-old son and photo of her from A Different World, which proved that Jaden is the spitting image of his mother! Jada chatted with ET’s Kevin Frazier on the red carpet for the Girls Trip premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday, where she was still laughing about the resemblance.
“Isn’t that crazy?,” she told Frazier. “When I saw that picture — Will took that picture — He was like, ‘Yeah, look at this.’ Yep it’s crazy… my child does look like me!”

The Smiths undoubtedly have great genes — and so does Jada’s mom, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, who, at 64, looks better than ever. A while back, a rockin’ snap of Banfield-Jones showing off her six-pack in a bikini circulated the internet.
“I have good genes, don’t I?” Jada said of her mom’s bikini pic. “Yeah, she rocks one better than me. When your own mother can put you to shame, I’m like, I don’t [know] if I gotta get back in the gym. I don’t know what I gotta do. I just told her, I said, ‘All that right there, just make sure you passing all those good genes down here.'”
Jada took her mom and brother, Caleeb Pinkett, to the premiere, but didn’t dare bring her 16-year-old daughter, Willow, to the racy R-rated comedy — even though she wanted to go.
“Jaden’s working in New York and Will’s working. And Willow is too young,” Jada said with a laugh. “Now, she can see this with her friends. But, I was like, I don’t want to sit with her through the grapefruit scene. No, not that part. She was like, ‘Mom, I want to go see this.’ Not tonight. Not tonight. I was like, ‘You better go to the movies and sneak in like you supposed to. This is so sneaking movie stuff for your age.'”
Last month, ET also spoke with Jada on the BET Awards red carpet, where she set the record straight about her empty nest, saying that only Jaden and his old half-brother, Trey, have moved out of the family’s house. “Willow hasn’t left yet,” she clarified. “Now, she will be 18 soon and I’m sure as soon as she turns 18, she’s out. But I have two that are gone.”
