London: Actor Will Smith’s son Jaden has become the highest paid Hollywood child star after raking in 3 million dollars for his role in the remake of the 1984 movie ‘The Karate Kid’.

The 12-year-old actor was reportedly paid a salary of 1 million dollars as an ``up front`` fee and another 2 million dollars bonus from the profits at the box office, reports the Daily Mail.

Jaden has not just acted but has also sung the theme song ``Never Say Never`` alongside teen superstar Justin Bieber.

Jaden`s seven-figure salary has made him, by far, the highest paid of any of the young actors currently in Hollywood.

Jaden, who is three-films-old had started his acting career alongside his father in the flick ‘The Pursuit Of Happiness’.
