Superstar JADEN SMITH featured on a cover of FLAUNT Magazine’s latest edition with photography done by Moisés Arias and styling by Jay Hines.
Jaden Smith is cultivating his own plot within superstar land, but we’d be remiss not to beg the guidance he has received from his father over time. The answer is simple, yet zenly profound. “One perfect brick,” his father would tell him on the set of The Karate Kid, a filmic undertaking the younger Smith thought would never end. The sentiment of the brick has stuck with him. “He would use the metaphor of The Great Wall of China. He would say, ‘I’m gonna focus on the whole wall, but you are just going to focus on laying one perfect brick everyday.’” He pauses, the aphorism sinks in. “Just one perfect brick. That’s all that I need to worry about, and one day I’ll look up and I’ll be blown away by my own work. And that’s exactly what happens, and before I know it I’m at the beach chillin’, and the work that I put in is there.”Continue with the story: Flaunt Magazine
