Remember when Jaden Smith was a full-on vampire? Yeah, us neither


Full disclosure: we dropped the ball on our round-the-clock Jaden Smith watch at some point in the recent past, and it turns out we missed A LOT during that time.

While we simply assumed he was busy composing more enlightening tweets on subjects like education and nutrition, it turns out Jaden was actually doing what we all do during a hangover day – hiding from natural light.

Why? Because he was a vampire, ladies, that's why.

Revealing all during an interview with French fashion magazine Numéro, the 18-year-old actor explained: "I was a vampire, for real. I could not expose myself to the sun and I was only wearing black trench coats."

"During a period of my life, I was Gothic. I was only wearing black and I was hiding from the sun because I was a vampire." he explained.

Thankfully for everyone involved, Jaden ultimately decided it was time to shed the trench and re-enter the world as we know it.

"Now I’m not a vampire, I’m out of this phase," he assured all concerned parties. "I open myself up to wear brighter things, to go out in daylight. I share much more mixed energy."

You hear that? He shares much more mixed energy.

We're all safe.
