Jaden Smith Says He Never Asked President Barack Obama About Aliens
Aside from his unique outfits, Jaden Smith makes some very unconventional comments during interviews and makes quirky remarks. The actor, who is also known for his rambling Twitter rants, claims he never asked former President Barack Obama about aliens.
Jaden doesn't shy away from telling the world exactly how he feels, even if that leads to facing strong criticism or ruthlessly mocking. He once got into a conversation with then-President Barack Obama about aliens, an event he later touted as one of the best of his life.
However, the 22-year-old Karate Kid alum denies reports about him initiating the conversation, although he was thrilled to have it. Jaden resorts to using his Twitter account to make some of the weirdest quotes and uses the platform to share his deepest thoughts and questions with his followers.
Some of his most talked-about tweets include suggesting that if everybody in the world dropped out of school, society would be much more intelligent. Aside from that, he once tweeted that if newborn babies could speak, they would be the most intelligent beings on planet earth. However, none of those remarks come close to his conversation with the president about aliens.
In an interview with Huffington Post, the interviewer asked Smith what it was like to ask Obama about aliens. Still, Smith immediately corrected the interviewer saying, "First off, I didn’t ask him." Clarifying the story for everyone, he said that he never asked Obama about aliens, noting that his dad Will Smith asked him not to say anything when he was about to ask him.
The MIB actor told Obama that his son has a question for him. While Smith said he remained tight-lipped at the moment, the president asked him if he wanted to know about the aliens. The former president told Smith that he could neither confirm nor deny the existence of extraterrestrials, but this became one of the most special memories of his life.
He told the outlet that having this conversation with the president was the best moment of his life, adding that he did it for alien conspiracy theorists around the world. He said somebody had to do it, and it was him.
Smith recalled that he was brought up in the conversation by a renowned lawyer trying to disclose extraterrestrials in Canada to a senate. They then cited his conversation with Obama to prove the fact that UFOs have become a mainstream topic, although that was the last thing they needed to prove it. Smith admitted that the president gave him a lot of information.
