Jaden Smith reveals that there was a time where he would question whether he was a normal human or not.
During an interview with Dazed, Smith said that growing up as a celebrity kid had its perks, but it also had its struggles. He mentioned that it was hard for him to make friends with regular, non-celebrity kids as much as he would have liked to. “People treat me like I’m not a normal human so much, that you start to believe it.”

While talking about his upcoming film about a teenage skateboarder who befriends other skater girls, Smith says he has found an accepting community within the New York skateboarding scene. “When I go to skate parks, people are like, ‘Oh shit, is that Jaden Smith?’ for about the first five minutes. Then after that, it’s totally fine and I’m another skater.”
The movie “Skate Kitchen” is scheduled to be released this Friday (Aug 10th).
