Starring young Jaden Smith and legendary actor Jackie Chan, Karate Kid was one of the most popular films of its time.

Seeing the chemistry between Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan was a treat to the eyes. While Chan did what he does best, i.e. play every role he gets with perfection, young Jaden shocked everyone too with his incredible acting performance.

Interestingly, Jackie tutored Jaden in real life as well. The actor revealed how everything in the movie was real. The Rush Hour star revealed how they trained Jaden to do everything by himself, including the splits, kicks, etc.
He further added how he saw Jaden‘s grit and determination whilst working on the movie. The actor added, “I can see through his eyes: ‘I want to be like my dad. I want to be famous.’” However, when asked about his 27-year-old son Jaycee, who is in the music field, Jackie revealed how he gets extremely angry when talking about his son. The actor added, “I just think my son is too lazy. I tell Will Smith: Can I adopt your son?”
