"Getting Jaden Smith ready for the first day of filming #LifeInAYear," Smith wrote. "Maybe I should've used scissors?!"

Jaden is beginning production on a new romantic drama, Life In A Year, starring opposite Cara Delevingne and Terrence Howard.

One fan who happened to run into Will and Jaden on Tuesday snapped a few pics with the pair, and revealed the 18-year-old actor's super close-cut conservative new 'do.


In Life In a Year, Jaden stars as a 17-year-old kid who finds out his girlfriend only has a year to live, so he sets out to show her a year's worth of life experiences in the time she has left. The film is expected to hit theaters next year.
