Will Premieres The Pursuit of Happyness

Will Smith was out in Westwood last night to premiere his latest movie The Pursuit of Happyness. He looked dapper as always on the red carpet at the Mann Village Theater. We just can't get over how adorable his son and co-star in the movie Jaden is. Will recently sat down with EW to talk about his new movie and his friendship with Tom... turns out he's a little jealous of Tom's fame. Here's more:

...The conversation has turned to his friendship and rivalry with Tom Cruise, and the actor, ordinarily a perpetual-motion machine, starts answering questions slowly, feeling his way as he tends to do when addressing delicate matters like race, religion, or, apparently, close friends who suffer grand public image crises.

''We never talk about competition,'' says Smith, 38, who's in town visiting with his wife's family for Thanksgiving. ''But we mark ourselves off of each other. Movie stars are becoming extinct, and Tom and I are helping one another.'' It's jarring to hear Smith refer to himself as a movie star. For the past hour or so, he's been effortlessly affable and grounded. With a drab olive sweatshirt drowning his surprisingly lanky frame and his short-cropped hair uniformly flecked with silver, he's more like a gabby favorite cousin than one of the planet's biggest box office draws.

''His wedding was world news,'' he continues, and seems poised to launch into the inevitable defense of Cruise's privacy. ''I love that, but I'm jealous.''

Wait a minute. Jealous?

''I am sooooo jealous of him right now!'' Suddenly, Smith is roaring like a kid who just lost at Mario Kart. ''World news! Iraq and Tom. I'm like, Dude, you're beating on me right now!''

The Pursuit of Happyness will be in theaters December 15th and we can't wait to check it out! Of course since Will is BFF with the Cruises, they were at the premiere as well, along with J Lo and Marc. Pictures of Tom, Katie, J Lo and Marc coming soon. In the meantime, more of Will, his kids Willow, Jaden and Trey, plus Jada Pinkett Smith, Angie Harmon, Cuba Gooding Jr., Thandie Newton, Terrence Howard, Virgina Madsen, Catherine Bell, Ol Parker, Chris Gardner and Ludacris so

I LOVE WILL...I hope that they never divorce, because they are so happy. He's already been through a terrible divorce when he was younger, and I know how difficult and heartbreaking it can be. I agree, he has NO reason to be jealous of Tom. Tom is just a weirdo.

This looks like a great movie and I think it is really really cool that his son is in it with him. It must have made this such a personal experience for Will Smith. What a wholesome family.
