Will Smith reveals how he feels to see his son dress in women's clothing.

Will Smith tells People that he has hands on parenting approach to his kids, so he isn't all that bothered by his teen son Jaden Smith wearing women's clothing. During an interview with DJ A.Dot for BBC Radio 1Xtra, Will explained that he and wife Jada Pinkett have always encouraged their kids to have freedom of expression. Jaden Smith DFree / “We may have gone too far,” he joked. “There’s a really powerful internal quality as an artist that as parents we encourage. You got to get out on the edge. You have to try things. You have to be comfortable doing things that people don’t agree with and you have to be comfortable doing things that you can fail.” Jaden Smith A.Dot followed up by asking Smith, “How do you respond then, for example, if you encourage them to have freedom of expression and then people will start making jokes about say Jaden modeling women’s clothes. How do you – as a dad – handle that?” “Jaden is 100% fearless, he will do anything,” he added emphatically. “So as a parent it’s scary, it’s really terrifying – but he is completely willing to live and die by his own artistic decisions and he just doesn’t concern himself with what people think.” Jaden was recently named the new face of Louis Vuitton womenswear, and lately has been criticized for his femine fashion decisions. “I feel like it’s an honor, actually, for people to think I’m crazy,” the 17-year-old told GQ in October, explaining, “They thought Galileo was crazy, too, you know what I’m saying?” Will Smith admits that the "rules" are different for his daughter Willow, saying that when Jaden goes out “he’s usually in a group of “6 or 7 dudes, so they have a small army when they go out, so their freedom is slightly different from Willow’s. Willow’s a 15-year-old girl. We try to have the same rules but it’s a different world, so we’ve been struggling with that.”
