So how did Jaden cry so well during emotional scenes? "I just thought of sad things," he says.
Will remembers one day on the set when Jaden struggled with a crying scene. "I said, 'Listen, you know, you're an actor and you are a wonderful actor. ... And we will all stand here and wait and when you're ready...,'" Will says. "And he stood there for a few minutes ... but he took himself there and I almost messed the scene up because I was, like, 'Boy, why didn't you say you could do that?'"
