Outfitted in a full Iron Man suit, Jaden Smith was spotted out in New York City on Wednesday along with rumored girlfriend, 15-year-old Kylie Jenner. The 14-year-old actor son of Will Smith and the E! reality TV darling have been seen together a lot recently, prompting chatter that they’re an item. But these two were not letting any headlines get in the way of hanging out together in the Big Apple.
While the reasoning behind Jaden's crazy costume is unclear, it was quite interesting to see the duo snapped together in the first place, given the comments his pops recently made to New York Magazine. When Will and Jaden sat down for an interview about their upcoming flick “After Earth,” the interviewer asked Will how his family compared on the fame scale to the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Let's just say he wasn't big on the comparison.
"For our family, the entire structure of our life, our home, our business relationships - the entire purpose is for everyone to be able to create in a way that makes them happy," he replied, adding, "Fame is almost an inconsequential by-product of what we're really trying to accomplish."
Jaden then admitted that he enjoys the spotlight - to a certain degree. "I think it's fun, except when people make up stuff about you. Then it's not so much fun. But besides that, I enjoy it," he revealed.
Speaking of the spotlight, Jaden turned up his wardrobe a notch when he hit the red carpet for Wednesday night's “After Earth" premiere, rocking a very dapper white three-piece suit. Kylie also attended Wednesday night's premiere - though she arrived separately. She was wearing a super scandalous black ensemble … adding fuel to those rumors that the two are an item.
However, Jaden set the record straight Thursday morning with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show, "On Air with Ryan Seacrest." He told the host exactly where his relationship stands with the youngest Jenner. "I love Kylie and I love Kendall. They’re just really good friends,” Jaden said. "We all just kind of hang out because we live in the same neighborhood and they’re really cool girls. I love hanging out with them. They’re just friends."
