Throwback Thursday: Jaden Smith And Abigail Breslin in 2007
Seven years can make a lot of difference in Hollywood...
And just a few months after production wrapped on the critically-acclaimed hit, an adorable Jaden stepped out in front of a star-studded audience at the 2007 Oscars (presented, as it happens, by this year’s Oscars host, Ellen Degeneres) alongside an equally cute 10-year-old Abigail Breslin to present the award for Best Short Film. (We get it – it’s ‘cause they were shorties, right?)
Abigail herself had just come off of a whirlwind promotional tour for Little Miss Sunshine, which won the 10-year-old a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Oscars that same year. (Sadly she lost out to Dreamgirl Jennifer Hudson).
Together Jaden and Abigail performed a skit in front of the crowd of Hollywood royalty plus a television audience of billions around the world and, at one point, proud papa Will can be seen clapping and beaming alongside wife Jada Pinkett.
So what has Jaden been up to since his first ever Oscars? Other than hanging around with galpal (and rumoured girlfriend) Kylie Jenner, he went on to star in the Karate Kid and, again opposite his father, in sci-fi action film After Earth.
Abigail, meanwhile, appeared in Ender’s Game and this year’s Oscar nominated August: Osage County alongside Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep.
And although, at 15 and 17, Jadan and Abigail may be all grown up, they’re still just as cute!
