Jaden & Willow Smith Open Up About Their Parents' Influence for 'Interview' Magazine Cover Story

Jaden and Willow Smith share their first-ever cover together for Interview magazine’s September 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 18-year-old actor/rapper and the 15-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On their parents [Will and Jada] being their biggest role models:

Willow: “Growing up, all I saw was my parents trying to be the best people they could be, and people coming to them for wisdom, coming to them for guidance, and them not putting themselves on a pedestal, but literally being face-to-face with these people and saying, ‘I’m no better than you, but the fact that you’re coming to me to reach some sort of enlightenment or to shine a light on some- thing, that makes me feel love and gratitude for you.’ They always give back what people give to them. And sometimes they keep giving and giving and giving. And some people don’t feel like they need to give anything back because it’s like, ‘Oh, if you’re famous, you can just keep giving, and it doesn’t matter.’ It’s not just about money. It’s not just about giving people gifts or whatever. What my parents have given to me is not anything that has to do with money or success or anything that society says people should be focusing on—it’s something spiritual that only certain people can grasp and accept. And that’s how I act and move in the world today.

Jaden: “I 100 percent agree with Willow on that one. My parents are definitely my biggest role models. And that’s where me and Willow both pull all of our inspiration from to change the world. It all comes from a concept of affecting the world in a positive way and leaving it better than it was than when we came. I feel like that enters into all types of different areas because there are so many different outlets that life has to offer for us. That goes into technology, into music. That goes into science, into spirituality, into education. Where me and Willow come from, a lot of it is trying to make society more efficient, so that kids don’t cry, like, ‘Why do I have to go to school?’ Instead, kids are like, ‘Yeah! I’m so glad to go to school! I’m a better person than I was yesterday, and I can help people.’”

Jaden Smith, Ansel Elgort & Elle Fanning Cover Variety's Power of Young Hollywood Issue

Jaden Smith, Ansel Elgort and Elle Fanning all cover Variety‘s Power of Young Hollywood issue, on stands now.

Here’s what the young stars had to share with the mag:

Jaden on always knowing he was different: “I’ve always looked at life differently. I always knew no one was going to understand me — since before I could talk — and that’s why I was so quiet. I was very calm, very to myself. I could tell I felt about life differently than other kids; I could tell by the way they treated me.”

Elle on the response to her films: “Some amazing movies have been torn apart in Cannes. But I’d definitely rather have a split response like love/hate than have audiences say, ‘Oh, that was fine.’”

Ansel on breaking out of his previous roles: “Young actors never get that opportunity. Otherwise my big commercial success would have been me being ‘Oh, you’re the brother in Divergent, right?’ There’s like no weight behind that character. I got lucky. And now a studio and a director will be able to say, ‘We can finance a movie with you in it and also you’ll do a good job.’”

Jaden on his clothing line MSFTS: “It’s pronounced ‘misfits.’ I took the ‘i’ out of ‘misfits’ because we’re a team and there is no ‘I’ in team. It’s a place for the lost kids and everyone to go, and something for them to have…the girl that wants to be a tomboy or the boy that wants to wear a skirt, and people try to condemn. We’re here for you. Tell us your stories. If someone at your school’s trying to pick on you, it doesn’t matter because Jaden Smith’s got your back.”

FYI: Elle is wearing Solid & Striped swimwear as a top on the cover.
