Get your "Parents Just Don't Understand" jokes ready because, for his 15th birthday, Jaden Smith has wished that he could make his family disappear.

The actor/rapper(?)/BFF of The Biebz turns 15 in July and has reportedly asked his folks to sign the necessary paperwork to grant him his emancipation.

Some kids want an Xbox; Jaden Smith wants all the freedom and responsibility (read: lack of supervision and ice cream for breakfast) that come with adulthood.

The father and son have a close relationship and have worked together on several occasions. In their new movie After Earth, Jaden's character Kitai Raige has to prove he is as tough as his legendary father Cypher.

Will is in no doubt that Jaden drew on personal experience while shooting.

"It's very similar for Jaden and me - your father's the biggest movie star in the world, and you're struggling for your little piece of dignity in this extreme shadow," he explained. [Herald Sun]

Will Smith didn't divulge whether or not he and Jada would grant Jaden's wish. Also, it's important to point out that rushing into adulthood isn't for everyone. I mean, if it wasn't for that little bit of magic dust still left in her doll house, Jennifer Garner totally would have had to watch Mark Ruffalo marry that Wendy woman in 13 Going on 30.

Never forget.
