Will Smith says his son Jaden refuses to be a slave to money.

Will revealed to Esquire Magazine, Jaden doesn’t want to feel like he needs anything material that badly.

"It’s such a strange thing. Jaden, my sixteen-year-old, he has one pair of shoes. He has three pair of pants and he has five shirts. Total," he told the magazine.

He continued: "I so respect that. The younger generation is less of an ownership generation, anyway. And it’s such an interesting thing to watch, because I came from a middle-class background, but, you know, our lights and gas would be cut off from not paying the bill. I grew up in a house where you would need the kerosene heaters in the winter in case the bills didn’t get paid."
