    Will Smith and Jaden Smith are quite the father-son duo.

    During an interview with E! News about their upcoming film, After Earth, the pair also discussed Jaden's love life. He is getting to that age when the ladies are definitely interested...

    So, what does his famous dad think about that?

    "Probably the best advice he's ever given me is, 'Don't have a girlfriend,'" Jaden revealed. "The stress is real."

    A laughing Will clarified that his advice against being in a relationship is "for now."

    "At this point, I just want him to establish his dreams, establish his desires," the actor said. "Find out who he is. And blending with another person is very difficult, and a lot of times you can lose yourself in that process. So my encouragement to him is to be honest with anybody that he interacts with. Don't make commitments that a 14-year-old can't live up to."

    Wise dad, that Will Smith.
