Jaden Smith Goes Under the Knife!…or Scissors, for a New Role!

According to blackamericaweb.com, Jaden Smith will be starring in a new role that requires a slight makeover, including cutting off his signature dredlocks.

Father Will Smith was happy to do the honors as he posted on his official Instagram page on Tuesday.

“Getting Jaden Smith ready for the first day of filming #LifeInAYear…maybe I should’ve used scissors?!” he says after taking what looks like a super embarrassing photo with his son.

Jaden is casted opposite Cara Delevingne in Life In A Year, which tells the story of a terminally ill teenage girl and her boyfriend (Jaden) who tries to make their final year together as memorable for the both of them as possible.

The movie also stars Nia Long, RZA, and Terrance Howard and is set to drop next year.
