Jaden Smith thinks that “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kylie Jenner is “pretty awesome.”

Well, what else would a 14-year-old boy think?

Wait. Don’t answer that.

The son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and the daughter of Kardashian momager Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner have been linked since early last month. They were spotted having lunch at Café Nero in London and having a chaperoned sushi dinner at Nobu with Big Will. Both incidents were documented by papz and have led to dating rumors.

Though neither has confirmed the relationship, if that’s not a match made in young Hollywood heaven, we’re not sure what is.

The actor-singer was recently profiled in Britain’s Wonderland magazine when he was in London to open for Justin Bieber’s “Believe” tour. And that’s when the discussion of his closeness with the 15-year-old Jenner came about.

“I was in L.A., we were all hanging out. Then I went to New York and she came too, and then she came here and surprised me, so that’s pretty baller,” he said. “She’s one of my best friends. It’s pretty awesome.”

The two have been “friends forever,” according to Us Weekly. Last November, Jenner posted a photo with Smith and two other guys that she captioned “I love these boys more than anyone could ever imagine.” And Jenner, an aspiring model, walked the purple carpet at this year’s Kids Choice Awards on March 23 sporting Smith’s clothing line MSFtS (pronounced Misfits), Just Jared reported.

You may also recognize Smith from the 2006 film “In Pursuit of Happyness” and “The Karate Kid” remake. The little Smith will also costar with his papa in this summer’s sci-fi adventure “After Earth.”

“It’s basically about a thousand years after Earth and people travel to the future to a planet called Nova Prime,” he said. “My dad in the movie is like the biggest soldier of all time and I’m his son — so kind of how it is in real life. We crash-land on Earth, and we have to figure out this whole situation.”

And till he and Jenner figure out their relationship situation, some other creatures are filling this adolescent’s attention span: aliens.

“I talked to President Obama about extraterrestrials. He said he could neither confirm nor deny the existence of aliens, which means they’re real. If people think we’re the only people that live in this universe, then something is wrong with them.”
