Jayden Smith turned heads in NYC Wednesday when he showed up for a date with girlfriend Kylie Jenner decked out in an Iron Man costume, reports Us.
The After Earth star even wore a mask to complete the ensemble.
Smith, Jenner and another couple dined at trendy Japanese restaurant Nobu 57 where, presumably, Smith took the mask off long enough to eat. The 15-year old actor picked one of the hottest days to go walking around covered head to toe in red and gold spandex.
It didn’t seem to bother the actor, though, and the couple was spotted later that evening at the premier for Smith’s new film, After Earth.
Jenner then took to social media to give her review of the film. “It was amazing,” she said in a Keek video. “And I recommend everyone go see it in theaters.”
Jaden and Kylie have been friends for awhile now but have recently been spotted together as a couple.
Smith downplayed the relationship, however, saying that Kylie was just one of his best friends.
Smith said: “I was in L.A., we were all hanging out. Then I went to New York and she came too, then she came here [to London] and surprised me, so that’s pretty baller. She’s one of my best friends. It’s pretty awesome.”
Either way, the publicity stunt raised a few eyebrows because it came right after an interview with Will Smith, Jayden’s dad, appeared in New York Magazine. In it the elder Smith seems to take a shot at the Kardashian clan when he said, “The idea of fame or exploitation or orchestrating the media is sometimes even less than desirable for us.”
Do you think the younger Smith would make a good Iron Man?
