The whole Smith family stepped out in LA yesterday to watch as Will's oldest son, Trey, graduated from high school! Will flew West during a break in shooting Men in Black III in NYC to join his wife, Jada, and younger children Willow and Jaden at the event. Trey had both his stepmom, Jada, and mom, Sheree Zampino, on hand. Easygoing Will was even spotted mingling with the other proud parents and introducing himself to some of Trey's classmates, though four bodyguards were apparently on hand in case a situation arose. Will was a frequent face around the school and was often in the stands cheering on Trey as he played football. Jada is presently gearing up for the return of her TV series Hawthorne and, in an interview with Uptown magazine, discussed how she and Will have allowed Jaden and Willow to be child stars. She said, "Believe it or not, they're both like me and Will . . . Willow's a lot like me — just in the chances she'll take. And then, Jaden has the drive of his father. Jaden and I are what I call introverted extroverts. Willow and Will are more pow! Jaden and I, well, we don't give that to just anybody . . . There are so many other kids you can worry about. My kids? They're going to be all right. I get why people would criticize. But people need to know that Will and I would never put our children in a situation that would bring them detriment."
The entire Pinkett Smith family was out last night for the premiere of Jaden's new movie, The Karate Kid. Will and Jada were inseparable on the red carpet when they weren't posing with fans, family, and old friends like The Fresh Prince of Bel Air's Tatyana Ali. The evening belonged to Jaden and his costar Jackie Chan, as well as the original film's karate kid, Ralph Macchio. Jaden is having quite the week after the MTV Movie Awards where he joked about his ladies' man status and fought with Tom Cruise in the Les Grossman opening. Jaden may be becoming quite the celebrity just like his parents, but he apparently still feels as though his sister Willow usually gets more attention — during fights, he said, "I scream for my mom. She usually takes Willow's side. My dad takes Willow's side, too. That's why I usually hang out with my brother." Will has lately focused on playing the role of doting husband and father, but he's rumored be considering returning to the Men in Black franchise, this time in 3D.

The stars came out to walk the orange carpet at the Kids' Choice Awards in LA on Saturday. Katy Perry kicked things off in her colorful and metallic gown, and she stopped to tell us all about her upcoming wedding to Russell Brand. She said, "I'm not that obsessed, but Russell's really obsessed with the wedding. Like, we go to breakfast, and he has to stop and get a bride magazine — it's a little crazy." Her good friend Rihanna kept things similarly short and sweet with her fashion, and she's also got a touch of the bridal fever since she's planning Katy's bachelorette party. Rihanna said, "I'm on it, I'm on it already!" Selena Gomez and Nikki Reed were ready for Spring in their little dresses, while Zoe Saldana was in jeans and a blazer.
The guys, meanwhile, kept things strictly casual. Cory Monteith was fresh off his bowling date with Taylor Swift, and when asked who won he said, "Not me — I suck at bowling!" Taylor's other close friend Taylor Lautner joined his Twilight costar Jackson Rathbone, while Dev Patel and Justin Bieber stuck with the dark jeans trend. Kevin and Joe Jonas had their ladies Danielle and Demi Lovato by their respective sides — let us know what you think of the day's fashion and beauty with Fab and Bella's love it or hate it polls!

Will Smith brought his whole gorgeous family to the Simon Wiesenthal Center's National Tribute Dinner in LA last night. Charlize Theron had warm words for her Hancock costar as she presented him with the 2009 Humanitarian award. Will said the idea of service has been part of his life since he was young, and his family expressed how proud they were of him. Will may be best known for his box-office success, but getting honored for his charitable side seems to be equally rewarding for the A-list actor.
Will Smith put on his cheering hat to hit the stands for his son Trey's high school football game in Agoura Hills on Friday. Looks like he wasn't feeling festive enough to don a costume, but maybe he took his kids out trick-or-treating after the game. Lately Will has been putting in plenty of doting dad time before he starts promoting Seven Pounds, but we all know that tomorrow he'll take time out from being an actor and family man to hit the voting booth with the rest of us.
Will Smith celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday watching his son Trey play football in LA with his family and former costar on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Alfonso Ribeiro. Will was in his element playing with his kids and giving tips to Trey while his loved ones surprised him with a special gift. Another reason for his big grin is that he just signed on for a prequel to I am Legend about the final days in NYC when the virus started to spread, though rumors of him playing Captain America are false. Sounds like Will's got all the makings of a birthday to remember, even though you all were unsure about how you felt about a sequel to his box office hit.

Will Smith took a turn playing "Mrs. Smith" joking around with Jada as they watched his son Trey's high school football game in LA on Friday. Fall means back to school and sports, but soon it will also mean returning to work for Jada, who's starring and executive producing a new TNT drama called Time Heals. The actress recently had to get some healing help for her dogs after a snake killed her pup Rocco, but she seems to be doing great and funny Will probably has a million ways to help cheer her up.

This Fresh Prince of Bel–Air has certainly come a long way since his flat top hairdo and high–top sporting days. After his long run on the popular 80's show, Will Smith earned a name for himself in Hollywood as a distinguished actor and an accomplished musician.
The man in black still knows how to turn out hot hits while acting in blockbusters. He won a Grammy Award for "Summertime" and was nominated for the Academy Award for both Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness.
