Remember that little boy in The Pursuit of Happyness? The one that stole the hearts of every moviegoer back in 2006, when Jaden Smith made his debut at the adorable age of 8. Well, that little boy got jacked baby with an insane body transformation. Scroll forward 14 years or so into his Instagram feed, and the son of blockbuster actor Will Smith is clearly all grown up.
Posting to Instagram, the actor, now the rapper is a hell of a lot bigger than he was back then. Sporting a physique that could rival the likes of Greek gods, Jaden Smith shows us all that even as a ‘skinny’ dude you can still achieve that Olympian figure. With an ectomorph body type and a height of only 1.7 metres tall, Jaden is an example for the rest of us. As an always lanky person myself at a height of 1.89 metres tall, I see this and think just maybe.
It’s not the first time he’s shown a bit of skin either. For his third studio album, CTV3: Cool Tape Vol. 3, released at the end of August this year, Jaden lays in a bed of flowers, while duplicated copies of him litter the background of the image. Telling his followers that “we come to our end” with the release of CTV:3, Jaden Smith has some pretty lofty goals for his future.
Speaking to Paper Mag earlier in October, “at only 22, he’s had his hand in more creative pursuits than most people have the energy for in a lifetime — music, fashion, even anime.”

Telling them that he’s been exercising “as much as possible” to keep busy “considering everything that’s going on in the world right now,” Jaden has already achieved one 2020 bucket list goal so far. Combined with The Solution Committee, Jaden is giving back to the world through social initiatives matched only by the success of his music career.
Using Snapchat to encourage voter registration prior to the upcoming November US presidential election, Jaden reminds us that “This is going to be one of the most important elections of our lives. So we really have to get out there and vote.”
“In the past, I never fully understood the platform that I have, and the number of people who, whether they want to listen to me or not, do hear me when I speak. I mean, I understand the platform now. As I got older, I just realized, I really want to use my platform in ways that are going to help all of us, better the entire world and make a better Earth for all of us.” No wonder he did that After Earth movie with his dad back in 2013.
