Jaden Smith, the 14-year-old actor and son to Hollywood stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, recently admitted to believing in aliens as he gears up to star in a summer sci-fi film with his father called "After Earth."
Smith recently admitted that he believes in extraterrestrial beings and spoke about how President Barack Obama furthered his beliefs during a trip to the White House with his father.
"I like aliens! I think aliens are really cool, because they exist," Smith recently told Wonderland magazine. "I talked to President Obama about extraterrestrials. He said he could neither confirm nor deny the existence of aliens, which means they're real."
Although some may question the young Smith's logic, he questioned people who may not look deeper into his theory.
"If people think we're the only people that live in this universe, then something is wrong with them," Smith told Wonderland.
Although Smith does not know what life is like outside of the limelight, he made sure to express his gratitude for his privileged life.
"I saw his first movie when I was one," Smith told Wonderland. "I mean, I went to premieres before I could talk. I'm really happy and fortunate, and thankful that I can get brought up in a family as lucky as mine."
Still, Smith proved that he is a regular kid despite his family's celebrity status. The budding film and music star previously admitted that although he was an entertainer, his parents have not allowed him to watch television since the age of 10.
"I watch like, Steve Jobs interviews, I don't really watch TV. I stopped watching TV when I turned like 10 because my parents were like, 'TV's really bad for you,'" Smith recalled to the.LIFE Files website last year. "I'll watch movies I like to see, Steve Jobs interviews, something that's going to make me smart and then go to sleep."
