Jaden Smith: I was a vampire, for real!

2016-10-15 21:00

Los Angeles - Jaden Smith claims he used to be a vampire.

The 18-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith says there was a period in his life where he couldn't expose himself to the sun but thankfully things have changed.

Speaking to French fashion magazine Numéro, he said: "During a period of my life, I was Gothic. I was only wearing black and I was hiding from the sun because I was a vampire.

"I was a vampire, for real. I could not expose myself to the sun and I was only wearing black trench coats.

"Now I'm not a vampire, I'm out of this phase. I open myself up to wear brighter things, to go out in daylight. I share much more mixed energy."

Jaden also revealed that he aspires to make the world a better place.

He said: "All I want to do is help the world and make it better. I want to leave a mark before leaving, I would like people to say: 'The world was like that when he arrived, and like that when he's gone. He is not here, but thank you.'"

And multi-talented Jaden is keen to work on what he sees as his strengths.
