Does Will Smith Have the Strangest Family in Hollywood?

Will Smith’s home-schooled children, Jaden, 16, and Willow, 14, gave an interview last month to The New York Times Style magazine, T. Maybe they shouldn’t have.
Instead of just sounding entitled as you might expect from the offspring of one of Hollywood’s most powerful couples, the teens uttered disjointed and sometimes truly bizarre statements, perhaps worthy of their Scientologist parents, but certainly a little disconcerting to the mere mortals who read the article.

Of course, the kids are already successful, with a joint net worth of about $12 million. Jaden, like his ‘Men in Black’ father and actress mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, has been in a number of films including ‘The Karate Kid’ and ‘The Pursuit of Happyness,’ while his sister’s debut single ‘Whip My Hair’ went platinum two years ago.
Still, maybe they shouldn’t give interviews to promote upcoming albums. Just one example of how difficult it could be to follow came when they were discussing time:
WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.
JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.
WILLOW: Because living.
JADEN: Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.
Don’t worry about the Smiths, though. The kids, whose parents are worth some $220 million, just don’t care what you think. As Jaden said: “Willow just dropped a song (‘Cares’), let me quote the lyrics: ‘I do not care what people say.’ We both don’t really care.”

    They are the black Addams Family

  • Amanda

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with what either of them said. Its all about perspective here.

  • Mbakey

    Great parenting, I have a 3 year grandson that speaks better. Keep up that Hollywood life.

  • Barta

    Uneducated, entitled little idiots! And dad, only takes rolls where he such a hero, rolls that he creates…you may be an asshole like Hancock but that’s all you have in common. And Jada, stop TRYING to sing and be a mom for once.

  • Barta

    Maybe the karate kid got kicked in the head and willow must have brain damage from whipping her hair back and forth!!

  • Uncanny_Valley

    Smart kids.
    Next topic.

  • Johnny Houston

    From outside looking in, that’s a scary family.

  • Just my opinion

    These poor kids do not have a chance to become normal! They are surrounded by freaks! It’s rather sad that Will and Jada reproduced! I agree with Shakespeare, they are the black Adam’s family! Freaks and geeks!

  • jc

    Will seems normal. As for his kids…

  • nykki

    Very intelligent. Well answered. The average person wouldn’t understand BC they are programmed to think meanwhile homeschooled children and unschool children have free thinking. N experiment more

    • V2

      Free thinking?? So when they say 2 + 2 = 782 they are free thinkers and not incorrect?

      • Leslie Slavens

        when did they say anything of the sort? If you read anything about time and space you would understand they are closer to the truth then you seem to understand.

        • V2

          I have read a ton about time and space, frig, my email is redshift33@…and what they are doing is taking a phrase or two, not unlike that Deepak Chopra idiot and throwing it out there with no understanding

          • Leslie Slavens

            You are missing the point!! No one is saying that the kids are totally accurate about the details of what they are saying, simply that at their young age they are discussing concepts and ideas (true or false) that are usually beyond them.

        • RealityBites617

          You are as wacky as they are. I think it is more likely these teens THINK they are smarter than most but in reality, they haven’t got a clue. They sound like idiots. It is good they are being challenged by people. It forces them to REALLY think. And maybe think twice before saying stupid things.

      • ambersaysso

        No that is just common core.

    • RealityBites617

      Nykki, you are delusional.

  • Tamarah Duffey

    there is nothing wrong with what either of them said. They are two very intelligent teenagers. Give credit where it is due.

  • Mehki_Girl

    Translation…for people engaged in life, time seemingly passes quickly. For those unengaged with life, time drags.

  • Pernell Parham

    It is not their fault that they think the way they do. They’ve grown up with fabulously successful parents in the land of fantasies come true and nepotism. They live in a world where all your dreams come true, so they may feel magical and special and that the world revolves around them. They probably have no perception of what the average person goes through.

  • Leslie Slavens

    I think these kids ideas were simply over the head of this journalist.

    • Aaron David

      dont give them the credit of the ideas

      • Leslie Slavens

        I am not crediting them with the ideas, simply saying that the things they are saying are not all that strange or unfounded. For children they seem to be able to think about complicated concepts and the journalist here can’t.

  • Wartface

    Breeding… Is like a box of chocolate – you never know what you’re gonna get.

  • Pat

    This wouldn’t be really really creepy if you know nothing about scientology.

    What these little tykes are going off on isn’t what normal kids think of, it is straight out the Manual from Elrond Hubbard.

    —–> He believes we are all time travellers trying to wake up… These kids are indoctrinated into a space religion where they think that we are all evil until we get ‘dianetics’.

    sorry guys, the truth hurts.

  • hudstim

    Still waiting for “Fresh Prince of West Philadelphia” where Jaden is a kid from Bel Air who gets sent to live with his cuz in da hood to toughen him up…

    • ambersaysso

      That could just be a hit.

  • novaaa

    They are very intelligent ! Lol they make a lot of sense (:

  • david

    I think they r doing a wonderful job. Its what’s works best for there families.i bet 75% of the folks talking on the subject are single parents with outraged kids. God tell us us never to judge. What the hell r u guys doing. Just stop. How can u hate so bad to set there and think of poor things to say about another’s family who is doing better than u.

  • RealityBites617

    The focus is on the content not the grammar. The Smith kids are wacky.

  • Sunshine_Stater

    Proof money does not only not buy happiness but in some cases intelligence. These parents allowed their children to be free birds before their time. But if it works for them then who cares.

  • Sunshine_Stater

    Yikes, taking this article really hit a nerve.

  • G’sUp

    People are always threatened by ones they don’t understand or make them question existance. I’m a big fan of these youth. I hope they keep talking like this despite others wanting them to fit in the box like the rest of society. SCREW THAT….Will Smith is a great father for letting his children be free.

    The media hates free thinkers that question the system and so do unconscious programs. This is the tale of human history for an open minded thinker and speaker to face opposition for shaking peoples perception of reality. It still exists today hence this article and these comments below. May the PEACE be with you!

  • Akara

    They are clearly the most possessed family…
