Will Smith "Very Proud" of Son Jaden: "He's Really Grown as an Actor"

Will Smith is one proud papa.

At last night's premiere of After Earth in NYC, the 44-year-old movie star couldn't help but gush over his 14-year-old son and big-screen costar Jaden Smith.

"I'm very proud of him," Smith told E! News on the red carpet. "The time that we got to spend together in the last year, literally 10, 12 hours a day. He's really grown as an actor and as a young man. If he wasn't my son, I'd be very jealous and I would want that boy to be my son."

"That was deep," Will added. "I would've said it off-camera too."

Too cute.
