The Smiths are getting more attention than ever thanks to Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk. But Jaden Smith also has a lot of fans. The young star is making a name for herself thanks to her music and unique fashion. And fans often wonder what he will say next.
In 2013, a fan asked Jaden what he looks for in a woman he’s dating. And he noted that intelligence is extremely important. Here because.

Will Smith and Jada have made it known that they are not typical parents, as they don’t have many rules in their family. But they still have opinions on what Jaden and Willow choose to do. And when it comes to dating, Will and Jada have a lot to say about their kids’ choices in partners.
It seems Will once advised Jaden to skip dating altogether in her teens. In 2013, Will and Jaden visited The Graham Norton Show along with some other celebrities. And the topic of dating came up.
“I heard that Will, your father, told you now is not the time to go out with someone,” Graham Norton told Jaden. “It’s true?”
“He didn’t say you can’t go out with someone,” Jaden explained. “He said, hey, I’ll just give you one piece of advice, friend of another friend, you don’t want a girlfriend right now. You have a great movie coming out. It’s going to make your life really complicated.”
Jaden said “intelligence” in women is key if they want to go out with him
It seems like 2013 was a popular year for Jaden to answer questions about her dating life. He was interviewed by Cambio that same year to answer some fan questions.
“They want to know, what are you looking for in a girl?” the interviewer asked Jaden.
“Intelligence,” Jaden initially declared. “Sometimes I say things you wouldn’t understand if you weren’t really smart. Like,” You know, I was reading The alchemist the other day and I thought it was really funny. “And they’ll say,” I don’t know what it is. “And it’s kind of like, ugh, that sucks.”
However, this kind of attitude doesn’t seem to agree with Jaden’s critics. A New York Post writer noted that Jaden and Willow have a pretentious nature due to the way they were raised.
“Jaden is 100% fearless, he will do anything,” writer Will said of his son. “So as a parent he’s scary, he’s really terrifying, but he’s completely willing to live and die according to his artistic decisions and just don’t care what people think.”
Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t the biggest fan of Jaden’s chosen romantic partners
While Jaden hopes to attract smart people to this day, it seems Jada isn’t impressed with who Jaden has chosen so far. In 2018, W magazine reported that Jada talked about her children’s choices in relation to romantic partners. Though she loves everyone Willow brought home, she has other opinions about her son.
At the time, Willow was only 17 and Jada noted that everyone Willow introduced to the family is “spectacular, in all honesty.” But Jaden leaves her “worried”. However, Jada allows her children to make their own choices, whether she approves or not.
“Your kids won’t always go out with people you love, but I’ve learned that you have to really be there and support because this can create a conflict you can’t get around,” Jada explained.
We’ll have to wait and see who Jaden chooses to leave in the future. But there is no doubt that he will consider them smart enough to understand who he really is!
