Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith make sure their son JADEN doesn't watch the TV news, because otherwise the eight-year-old has nightmares for weeks. The Smiths are amazed by how Jaden, who co-stars with dad Will in THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS, can identify with everything that is put in his way. Will explains, "We call him empath. He has the power to empathise with situations he has no knowledge of beforehand. "We can explain it to him, he will ask a question and he will take it in. If you explain it clearly he is emotionally transported to that space. "We have to be careful with the stories we let him hear. He doesn't watch TV too much anyway, but the news can ruin his whole month."
