Will Smith is thrilled his son Jaden understands the ''responsibilities'' he has.

The 'Suicide Squad' star is so proud of his 19-year-old son, who he says completely ''understands'' who he wants to be.

He said: ''He's really coming into a space where he understands who he wants to be, and the big thing that I feel good about with my kids [and] the thing that my grandmother was able to instill in me was the responsibility to your family, your community and to the world.

''Everything you do is not just for you. You are connected to everything and everybody and you have a responsibility in everything you say and do out in the world to care not only for yourself, but for everybody.''

And the 48-year-old actor - who also has Willow, 16, and 24-year-old Trey, praised his wife Jada Pinkett Smith for being an advocate for women's rights.

He told Entertainment Tonight: ''With Jada, every decision that she makes is so gut-wrenching - every time she does something, she wants it to be right.

''She wants to hold a certain level for women and for the world and all of that, so she really batters herself in the process of making a decision and then through the process of creating. So for me to see her have a win after the amount of suffering she went through to deliver it - it's a big win.''

Meanwhile, Jada previously described Will as the ''greatest gift''.

She wrote: ''I saw this video yesterday and it reminded me of all the wonderful ways you and I have made a difference together on this planet. We do so much good in this world together, Will and there is so much more to come. You have been the greatest gift to me in that way, by being a fire of inspiration in my heart.

I love you always. To the king of kings.''
