Jaden Smith Is – and Always Has Been – an Outsider

Variety’s ‘Power of Young Hollywood’ cover also named Elle Fanning, Ansel Elgort and more.

Hollywood’s next generation counts an impressive roster who are shaking – and shaping – up youth culture like never before. Variety named Jaden Smith, Elle Fanning, Ansel Elgort alongside Bethany Mota and Cameron Dallas to cover its “Power of Young Hollywood” issue.

Read the highlights below and head over to Variety to read it in its entirety.

Jaden on being the odd one out:
“I’ve always looked at life differently,” says the 18-year-old actor, rapper, and fashion trendsetter. “I always knew no one was going to understand me — since before I could talk — and that’s why I was so quiet. I was very calm, very to myself. I could tell I felt about life differently than other kids; I could tell by the way they treated me.”

Elle on film critics:
“Some amazing movies have been torn apart in Cannes,” she notes. “But I’d definitely rather have a split response like love/hate than have audiences say, ‘Oh, that was fine.’”

Ansel on his big break:
“Young actors never get that opportunity,” Elgort says. “Otherwise my big commercial success would have been me being … ‘Oh, you’re the brother in “Divergent,” right?’ There’s like no weight behind that character. I got lucky. And now a studio and a director will be able to say, ‘We can finance a movie with you in it and also you’ll do a good job.’”
