Jaden Smith Only Owns One Pair of Shoes, Doesn't Want to Be a 'Slave to Money'

Jaden Smith gets ready to catch a flight out of LAX on Wednesday afternoon (February 11) in Los Angeles.

The 16-year-old actor’s dad Will recently revealed to Esquire that Jaden only owns one pair of shoes, three pairs of pants, and five shirts.

“He has refused to be a slave to money,” Will told the magazine. “I so respect that. The younger generation is less of an ownership generation, anyway. And it’s such an interesting thing to watch, because I came from a middle-class background, but, you know, our lights and gas would be cut off from not paying the bill. I grew up in a house where you would need the kerosene heaters in the winter in case the bills didn’t get paid.”

He continued, saying: “And he’s from the complete other end of the spectrum. And it’s so interesting to me that from growing up in that space, he could see the need for things in a way that he’s rejecting. He’s like, ‘I’m not gonna let myself need things in that way’ — but I would like him to get another pair of shoes.”

    So what Will Smith is saying then is that his son Jaden Smith is a normal guy and unlike a girl doesn’t need hundreds of shoes he will wear once.

  • Justin Aniston

    So just because he only has ONE pair of shoes, he isn’t a slave to money? That makes no sense at all.

    Right, the same jaden Smith that bought 2 cartier love rings with Kylie Jenner last V day $3000, she bought 6! That pic of his daughter in that boob shirt, that top was a Jean Paul Gaultier T-shirt. If he’s not wearing his own brand, they are wearing designer clothes, vintage because they are into that grungy skateboard LA thing. I hate when you catch stars you like in lies.

  • Go Figure!

    Why isn’t this child in school? Or is school on some kind of break?

  • Barry

    Owww…. This kid is so down to earth.
    He really deserves to be a movie star too.
    And After Earth was great.

    Come on, Will. We like you, but don’t push it.

    It’s easy not to be a “slave to money” when everything is handed to you on a silver platter (like, you know, his movie “career”, money is no object, and daddy gives you everything. I’m embarrassed for Will. The kid lives a life of excess.

    “one pair of shoes, three pairs of pants, and five shirts”, and a white batman suit..lets not forget the batman suit.

    Lol true

  • Fettabob

    i like his dad, but the way this kid was raised is somehow not right. i dont know if its because of sci or not, i dont even care, but something is not right with him. his tweets, his behavior very wierd.

    But how much the shoe is cost? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMuscKEmV3I

  • mm366

    But I bet he flew first class!

  • Guest

    Not a slave to money?…says the kid who lives wildly and freely traveling around the globe on mommy and daddy’s dime. Jaden’s “impressive level of integrity” is laughable.

    Does Will Smith really think we’re this dumb?

  • suzybel

    Can they afford a haircut for the poor kid before he goes cross eyed.
