The actor is opening up about his unique sense of style in the new issue of GQ, where he finally reveals the real reason he wore a Batman costume to Kim Kardashian's wedding ... and then donned a white cape to his prom earlier this year. "I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom which was fun," he says in the July Issue, which names him as one of the 20 best dressed men alive. "But also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so."

Jaden Smith's Reasons for Wearing a Batsuit to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Wedding Are Predictably Batty

23 June 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"My style icons are Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Superman and Kanye West." So says Jaden Smith, who is included in GQ's list of the "20 Most Stylish Men Alive." Perhaps his answer isn't all that surprising, given that Smith wore a white Batsuit to West's wedding to Kim Kardashian in May 2014 (and again to prom in 2015). Speaking of the two events, why did the 16-year-old After Earth actor choose to dress like a superhero? "I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom which was fun, but also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so," he says.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off.

Bryce Dallas Howard: 5 Awesome Performances & 5 That Sucked

12 June 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Hollywood and nepotism go hand in hand, and when you’re an actor with a Dad who’s Hollywood royalty, the press can get a little snooty. In some cases this is justified (see the career of Jaden Smith), but in other cases, whatever an actor’s background, you get the impression they would have made it anyway. With strong reviews for Jurassic World and a varied resume which takes in Hollywood thrillers, as well as more thoughtful, independent fare, it’s starting to look like Bryce Dallas Howard belongs in the latter category.

Her early appearances were mostly cameos in her dad’s films such as Apollo 13 with Tom Hanks and the Steve Martin comedy Parenthood – not bad for an actress yet to catch the acting bug. As she matured, she took on larger parts in a series of forgettable, big-budget movies such as The Village and Spider-Man 3, »

Since 2013's critically panned After Earth, Jaden Smith has steered clear of acting and started a promising music career instead. (He'll also be your super-fly prom date.) But now he's ready to multitask: After searching for unknown actors, Baz Luhrmann has cast the 16-year-old in his upcoming Netflix drama The Get Down. The music drama, set in 1970s New York City, follows a group of South Bronx teens. And Jaden will have a recurring role as one of them, Marcus “Dizzee” Kipling, a "psychedelically talented and enigmatic graffiti writer raised in the South Bronx."
