Will and Jada Smith staged an intervention after Jaden went vegan

In a Red Table Talk discussion, the Smith family opens up about eating habits including Jaden's reveal about what food makes him horny

Will Smith and his family have opened up about their relationships with food in a candid new episode of Red Table Talk. The hit roundtable show hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith, her mother Adrienne Banfield Norris, and daughter Willow Smith sees the women discuss important and provocative topics with friends, family, and guests. 

For this week’s episode, the entire Smith family gathered around the red table for the first time with Will, Jaden, and Trey joining the women as Will calls an emergency family meeting. The topic of discussion is eating habits, food and health which Will opens up by sharing about a recent weight gain and how that affected him. He shares that while on vacation this summer he was eating more than usual and his weight rose to 225 pounds, the highest it has ever been leading Jada and Willow to nickname him “Pudge Muffin”.

After fasting to lose the weight, Will says he had an epiphany. “I had the epiphany that I actually don’t know anything about food. I know how to eat to make my body look muscular, but I actually don’t know how to eat to feel good. I don’t know how to eat to be healthy,” he says. 

The conversation then turns to Jaden, with Jada sharing that she and Will recently staged an intervention for their son who was vegan and not getting enough protein. “He was wasting away. He just looked drained, he was depleted, he wasn’t getting enough nutrients,” Jada says, with Will adding “He had the dark circles under his eyes, there was even a little greyness to his skin. We got really nervous.” 

Jaden clarifies that he now is a vegetarian and his parents agree that he is looking better. 

Will then brings in nutritionist Mona Sharma for a Smith family health intervention who quizzes the family on everything from constipation to sleep patterns, with some highlights including Jaden admitting that arugula makes him horny and Will sharing his pee looks like beer sometimes.
