"Haters Will Post The One On The Left And Ignore The One On The Right. Like🤮, Damn Can A Man Have His Phases🤷🏾‍♂️."

The 25-year-old has come a long way from the day when his parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, among others, staged an intervention amid concerns that he was "wasting away." The couple revealed on a 2019 episode of Red Table Talk that they were joined by his siblings Willow and Trey, as well as grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, to discuss Jaden's eating habits.

Jada said her son appeared "drained" and "depleted" since becoming a vegan. "I was just eating like two meals a day...maybe one," Jaden admitted. "Maybe just that one big meal and I'm like, 'Oh, you know, I didn't get around to it.'"

Jaden revisited the topic two years later, saying he had been working with doctors and gained 10 pounds. The multihyphenate offered up a bit of foreshadowing at the time while discussing how he had been able to keep the weight on, adding, "I’m able to put on my muscle."

Will Smith also spoke about his own weight loss on Red Table Talk last year. The Oscar winner said he was around 225 pounds when he posted a photo of himself in "the worst shape of my life." Smith went on to drop down to 195 pounds to play Peter in the film Emancipation.
