Will Smith gives Justin Bieber weekly advice.

The Hollywood actor has been offering the 19-year-old pop star some guidance following a number of headline-making antics this year, which saw him getting into a heated confrontation with a paparazzi photographer.

Will - whose son Jaden is pals with Justin - reportedly drove to the 'Boyfriend' hitmaker's house and pulled him out of bed for a three-hour talk when he returned home from the controversial European leg of his 'Believe' tour in May.

Justin's manager Scooter Braun recalled the pop star's reaction, saying: ''He said, 'Man, that makes me feel so loved. I woke up, and there's Will Smith, one of, if not the, biggest movie stars on the planet. He took time out of his day for me.'''

Since the initial visit, the 45-year-old actor has arranged a weekly call with Justin to discuss his emotions, spirituality and more.

Scooter told The Hollywood Reporter: ''He's telling me, 'Justin's got to go through it. You can't stop him from going through it. That's youth in itself. He's a young man who's growing up, and that's what makes him interesting and relatable. Otherwise, he'd be some kind of weird robot.'''
