Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, had to step in in 2019 when they saw that their 23-year-old son, Jaden, had become too thin due to his vegan diet. They say it on their Facebook talk show red table discussion. “We’ve seen it weaken,” Jada says. At the time, Jaden thought it “looks really cool”.
Today, Jaden Smith is a muscular man, but when he sang at the US Coachella Festival in 2019, he was skin and bones. “I only ate twice a day, sometimes once. I ate a big meal, then forgot to eat again.”
Jaden adhered to a vegan diet at the time. “But we saw that he wasn’t getting enough protein,” Jada says. “We saw him crouching like this. He looked exhausted and exhausted.” Father Will continues: “He had dark circles under his eyes. His skin even turned gray.”
During the talk show, a photo of Jaden was shown topless at Coachella. “I thought I looked cool then,” he laughs. “I thought: I’m very fit, I should take my shirt off now.” The couple decided that intervention was necessary because they feared for his health.
Meanwhile, Jaden has become about five kilograms heavier than that time. With the help of doctors, he found a way to gain weight the healthy way, through protein shakes, vitamins and supplements. “It’s like I have to find the password to my body.” Jaden no longer eats vegan every day, but he still eats vegan. We were very worried. But you look better now,” concludes Will.
