Los Angeles: Hollywood A-list couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett fought over their son Jaden`s tough work schedule when filming the movie `The Karate Kid` in China.
While Jada was convinced that the 11-year-old was too young for the extremes his dad had planned, Will who is also the producer of the film set his son a tough schedule,
reported Ace Showbiz.
The `I Am Legend` star insists the whole project was akin to teaching his son to hunt and he had many ferocious fights with his wife over it.
"It was a ferocious fight. I was like, `My priority is Jaden`. I told Will, `I understand that there`s certain things you are trying to put in, but, at the end of the day, he`s 11`. We just had to find a nice balance. I`m telling you he`s a different child from his experience in China," said Jada on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
In trying to explain his motives for working his son hard, Will added, "We`ve been having this passionate debate. I feel like greatness lives on the edge of destruction. The
reason why someone is great is because they survived death."
