Will Smith has a new book coming out, and the author took to Instagram while signing his name for autographs.
His new memoir aptly titled “Will” hits bookstores this November. Smith posted a video to promote the new book, but his son Jaden Smith stole the show with his infectious laugh.
Jaden appeared to be helping gather Smith’s signatures after he autographed them on the video. His father wrote a caption joking that Jaden’s raps about stacking paper were about stacking his dad’s autographs.
“Just so y’all know,” wrote Smith. “When Jaden raps about ‘stacking paper’ this is what he means. Preorder link is in my bio!! #willthebook #bookstagram.”
Jaden laughed at his father’s comments, catching the notice of Instagram fans. He later poked fun at his laugh and commented on his dad’s post.
“And The Worlds Most Wtf Laugh Goes To,” wrote Jaden.
One fan wasn’t sure that they heard. Some fans were tickled by his laugh and said it reminded them of his mother’s laugh.
“What was that laugh?”
“It’s Jaden laugh for me.”
“Just like his mum.”
“Yep, sounds like Jada’s laugh.”
“I love Jaden’s authentic laugh at his dad’s jokes. He really got to grow up with the FRESH PRINCE.”
Smith may be a new author, but he hasn’t slowed down on his successful film career. The actor has a new film coming out and is getting Oscar buzz for his role in “King Richard.”
The film tells the inspirational real-life story of how Richard Williams coached his daughters, Venus and Serena Williams, into Grand Slam tennis champions. The biopic was produced by Williams’ daughters Isha Price, Venus and Serena.
The “King Richard” actor discussed his own relationship with his father in his memoir and detailed an incident that he says was a defining moment in his life. Smith described his father punching his mother in the head with his fist. He said although he loved his father and was blessed to have him, his father also inflicted great pain on Smith.
“My father tormented me. And he was also one of the greatest men I’ve ever known,” he wrote. “He was one of the greatest blessings of my life, and also one of my greatest sources of pain.”
He went on to say that he used comedy to defuse potentially violent situations. “Comedy defuses all negativity. It is impossible to be angry, hateful, or violent when you’re doubled over laughing.” His memoir also details his rise to fame as a Grammy-winning rapper and leading man in Hollywood.
Fans also became distracted a few weeks ago while the author was signing his name for his new memoir. He was listening to his daughter, Willow Smith, singing “Meet Me at Our Spot” featuring The Anxiety and Tayler Cole.
The 53-year-old author is beginning a book-signing tour on Nov. 8 in Philadelphia. Smith’s memoir “Will” will be available online and in bookstores on Nov. 9.
