Will Smith has taken a break from movies while his wife Jada Pinkett Smith shoots TV series 'HawthoRNe'.

Although the 'Men In Black' star is happy to stay at home and look after the three children they raise together - 16-year-old Trey from his previous relationship and Jaden, 10, Willow, eight with Jada - he isn't keen on preparing meals for the family.

Jada laughed: "Will doesn't cook. We have other people in the house to do that stuff. But Will does do the parenting. If there are any problems, I don't have to worry because I have a partner and he has me covered.

"I am so thankful Will is home. Plus, I think when mom works it gives the kids a nice break. It gives them a minute to appreciate you and miss you. Now I hear, 'Oh, I need mom to do it. I miss you, mom.' "
