Justin Bieber and Will Smith are so close, they're practically family. On Wednesday, the "Beauty and a Beat" singer shared a pic on Instagram of the unlikely pair captioning it, "Me and uncle Will." Judging from the photo, Smith is equally as fond of the 19-year-old. The 44-year-old Hollywood vet has his arm around Bieber's shoulder and is flashing a peace sign at the camera.

Back in April, Will defended Justin against critics who scrutinize his every move, telling U.K.'s Capital FM, "There are things that are just simple and normal for a 19-year-old to do. When I was 19 there was no Twitter, the things that I was doing — I was able to have privacy because everybody's phone didn't have a camera on it."

The Biebs was quick to acknowledge Smith coming to his defense, tweeting, "Will Smith is the Man."

But this isn't the first time the young megastar has paid tribute to the "After Earth" star. Check out the vid to hear more about Justin and Will's budding bromance.
