Willow Smith runs the Smith household, this according to her dad Will Smith. The After Earth star tells David Letterman that most of his energy is focused on his teen daughter.


“You know, 90 per cent of the focus is Willow. A 14-year-old girl takes all of the attention,” says Will. He adds, “It’s like the world ends three times a week, you know? It’s like, 14-year-old girl Independence Day at my house every week.”

Smith further explains by telling Letterman a story about one of the family cats. “So she has these cats. … She has these cats and she loves these cats and we live out in the boonies, right? So I accidentally left one of the doors open and she couldn’t find the cat. And it’s a bad look for cats in my neighborhood you know, ’cause there’s coyotes and stuff out there – they’re not gonna make it. So she was very upset and she looked at me and tears welled up in her eyes and she said, ‘I cannot believe you would be that irresponsible!'” Poor Willow. The good news is that they found the cat in the house.

Will Smith has two children, Will and Jaden, with wife Jada Pinkett-Smith. The actor has three kids in all.
