It's now confirmed. At some point in his life, Jaden Smith was definitely that mall goth who roamed local Hot Topic stores looking for that perfect spiked choker to compliment his black nail polish and Linkin Park concert tee.
He also apparently once self-identified as a vampire, which should come as no surprise to anyone who's had the distinct pleasure of reading his philosophical musings on social media.
"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," he explained to French magazine Numero in a recent interview. "I was a vampire, for real. Now I'm out of this phase. I open myself to the fact, wear more colorful things, to go out in daylight. I share much more mixed energy."
We can't decide what's more amusing: that Jaden Smith avoided the sun for years like a "Twilight" extra or how difficult we'd imagine it was for the interviewer to maintain a serious journalist face during this odd exchange.
