Jaden Smith does not care if people think he is crazy. The 18-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith has now claimed that he was once a vampire.

During an interview with French magazine Numero Homme, Jaden revealed that he went through a vampire phase and did not get out in the sun. He said: "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."

"I was a vampire, for real. I could not expose myself to the sun and I was only wearing black trench coats," he added.

"I'm not a vampire anymore, I'm out of that phase. I've opened myself up to wearing more colourful clothes, to going out in the middle of the day. I share much more mixed energies," Jaden continued.

In 2015, The Karate Kid star explained why he gives strange interviews. He told GQ magazine: "It's fun, bro. That's what a lot of people don't realize. It's fun. It's so much fun. It's the best thing. People think you're crazy — I feel like it's an honor, actually, for people to think I'm crazy. Because they thought Galileo was crazy, too, you know what I'm saying? I don't think I'm as revolutionary as Galileo, but I don't think I'm not as revolutionary as Galileo."

In related news, it was recently announced that Jaden is set to receive the Male EMA Futures Award at the upcoming Environmental Media Association's 2016 EMA Awards. He said in a statement: "It's important for everyone to know that you can make a difference no matter what obstacles you think are in your way. After seeing the amount of ocean pollution and the effect it was having on marine wildlife, I couldn't stand there and do nothing about it — I knew I had to take action. By packaging water in bottles made from paper and plant-based plastic, JUST water is reducing the amount of harmful greenhouse emissions while helping to preserve the environment."

He added: "With the Male EMA Futures Award, our voices are being amplified and we're making a difference. Having the support from an organization that shares the same values as me makes the future more optimistic than ever."
