Jaden Smith says Al Gore has been ‘like a mentor’


It’s safe to say that most 20-year-olds’ heroes aren’t 70-year-old DC wonks.

But audience members who saw Jaden Smith interview Al Gore at Summit LA 18 told us that Smith gushed that Gore’s been “like a mentor” to him, inspiring Smith’s interest in climate change.

Meanwhile, Smith joked that he has a trick for getting fellow millennials interested in the cause: “I scare them as much as I can. I tell them if the skate park floods, you’re going to have to learn to surf.”
