Originally posted 05/28/2013 11:30AM

In their new film After Earth, real-life father and son Will and Jaden Smith play a father and son – and Will says his 14-year-old son's decision to act was all his own.

"It may seem like we have pushed our kids into the business, but that is absolutely insane," the star tells New York magazine in advance of the movie's May 31 release.

"I would never, ever, push somebody to have their face on a poster that's going to be everywhere in the world. He is making a choice from the informed," says Will, 44.

Will Smith Raps Fresh Prince Theme Song with Son Jaden – and Dances with Alfonso Ribeiro!

Originally posted 05/25/2013 06:00PM



It wasn't Bel-Air, or even West Philadelphia, but Will Smith grabbed a microphone in London and proved he hasn't forgotten his Fresh Prince roots.

The megastar and son Jaden pleasantly shocked The Graham Norton Show audience Friday when they stood up during their appearance to promote After Earth and rapped the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air – with the help of Smith's old pal, DJ Jazzy Jeff. (Smith racked up eight million YouTube hits when he rapped the theme song last time he was on the show.)

The 41-year-old mom to Jaden, 14, and Willow, 12, who recently showed off an extremely toned beach body, says the craziest diet she's ever done actually involved a whole lot of eating.

"My craziest diet was for The Matrix," Smith told PEOPLE at the Vera Wang Fall 2013 Collection fashion show at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week on Tuesday. Seated front row next to model Chrissy Teigen, Pinkett Smith enjoyed some girl time away from husband Will Smith, who recently vacationed with pals – and parents-to-beKim Kardashian and Kanye West in Brazil.

Originally posted 12/02/2012 05:20PM

Sure, the presidential election season may be long over, but the spirit of democracy is still in full-swing in Hollywood, where some familiar faces are campaigning for the industry version of a spot in the White House: a gold Oscar statuette.

You'll have to wait until February to see which of your favorite scene-stealers will take home honors at the 85th Academy Awards. Until then, the industry's top contenders arrived in head-to-toe red carpet form Saturday at the Academy's Governors Awards, which serves as an unofficial venue for potential nominees to convince Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to rock the vote (in their favor, of course).

Harley Pasternak Blogs: How Leading Actors Get Fit for Roles

Originally posted 10/17/2012 10:00AM

A few weeks ago, my wife and I watched Crazy Stupid Love (I know, I know, we're a little late to the party). In one scene, Ryan Gosling seduces Emma Stone by taking his shirt off.

I turned to my wife to see her reaction. She was beet red and had her jaw wide open. When I asked if she enjoyed the movie, she uttered, "Ryan Gosling really was … fit looking."
