Will Smith's Daughter Channels Rihanna, Speaks Chinese

Rhianna/Willow Smith

Willow Smith, the daughter of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, made a splash in Norway on Friday when she participated in Nobel Peace Prize festivities with her parents.

The 9-year-old appeared at the Peace Prize Concert -- which the Smiths are hosting -- with a haircut similar to Rihanna's: sides shaved, top worn long, flat, and swept to the side of her face. Showing off her linguistic dexterity, she also introduced Chinese pianist Lang Lang in his native Mandarin.

Willow is unlikely to leave her acting roots to become a states- person, though. With her Hollywood pedigree, she already has a resume that boasts "I Am Legend," "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl," and "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" among her credits.

Of course, Willow isn't the only young actor in the Smith clan who's picking up some Mandarin. Her brother, 11-year-old Jaden Smith recently finished filming the remake of "The Karate Kid" with Jackie Chan in China. Perhaps they can watch the new Karate Kid practice his Japanese martial arts in the country where kung fu originated.

"The Karate Kid" opens in theatres in June 2010.
