Will Smith: Willow Can Date…When She’s FortyPublished by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Will Smith barely breaks a sweat when it comes to fighting aliens, but he can’t control his only daughter.
The Men in Black 3 star tells People.com he’s “freaking out” about daughter Willow Smith, 11, dating. “It’s coming, and I’m nervous about it,” he says. “Having two boys and a girl, I realize that boys take trouble to other people’s houses, and girls bring it home.”
“So, the thing we are struggling with is the rules,” he says, “and setting fair rules for the boys and for Willow, but she’s not having any of that.”
But if Big Willie has it his way, none of this will matter for at least another twenty or thirty years (coincidentally around the same time we can expect Men in Black 4). “When Willow does bring a boy home, I’m going to screen him and find out everything about him,” he vows. “And that’s going to happen when she’s 40, when she’s allowed to go on dates!”
For a pimply-faced boy, we know Will Smith at the front door holding a prop AK-47 is a scary thought, but we’d be more worried about Willow’s mom Jada and her guns.
