On her American web television talk show Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith explained why she was worried about Jaden Smith’s eating habits once he decided to go vegan.

“Will and I had a bit of an intervention with Jaden because he’s a vegan now, but we realized he wasn’t getting enough protein. So he was wasting away. He just looked drained, he was just depleted, he wasn’t getting the nutrients,” Jada said on Red Table Talk in September 2019.

Her husband Will added, “He had dark circles under his eyes. There was even a little grayness to his skin. We got really nervous. But you’re definitely looking better now.”

“I was just eating like two meals a day. And maybe one,” Jaden said when asked about his diet on Red Table Talk. “Maybe just that one big meal and then I’m like, ‘Oh, you know I didn’t get around to it.”

“I was not doing good,” he continued. “I wasn’t looking good, I wasn’t feeling good, I wasn’t sleeping.”

He has since made some adjustments to his diet. “I’ve tried to eat vegan meals,” Jaden Christopher Syre Smith said. “I’ll go vegan for a week or so, but for the past year I’ve been vegetarian.”

In May 2013, the entire Smith family made it out to the premiere of “After Earth,” which features Will Smith and Jaden Smith. The father-and-son duo was accompanied by Trey Smith, Willow Smith, and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Jaden opted to wear an all-white ensemble to the premiere, whereas his dad chose a red suit. Trey’s all-black outfit contrasted Jaden’s look… and somewhat matched Willow’s edgy and sophisticated black-and-white suit.

Despite the rest of the family’s decision to wear pants, Jada wore a pretty floral mini dress from the Blumarine Fall 2013 collection.
