The five stars all spoke to the crowd about how they use their fame to do good.
“I want to create a bottle of water that is made from renewable resources, that is not made from plastic, that you don’t need petroleum, that you don’t need oil, that you don’t need to go to war for this bottle. This is a bottle of water that is for the people, the environment, that is for the human race,” Jaden said (via Variety).
FYI: Elle is wearing a Marc Jacobs dress and shoes with Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Bethany wore Jerome C. Rousseau sandals.

The young stars opened up about about their other projects, critical response to their films and their breakout roles. Check it:
Jaden on always knowing he was different: “I’ve always looked at life differently. 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 the response to her films: “Some amazing movies have been torn apart in Cannes. But I’d definitely rather have a split response like love/hate than have audiences say, ‘Oh, that was fine.’”
Ansel on breaking out of his previous roles: “Young actors never get that opportunity. 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.’”
Jaden on his clothing line MSFTS: “It’s pronounced ‘misfits.’ I took the ‘i’ out of ‘misfits’ because we’re a team and there is no ‘I’ in team. It’s a place for the lost kids and everyone to go, and something for them to have…the girl that wants to be a tomboy or the boy that wants to wear a skirt, and people try to condemn. We’re here for you. Tell us your stories. If someone at your school’s trying to pick on you, it doesn’t matter because Jaden Smith’s got your back.”

Jaden recently opened up about how he got into hip-hope, saying, “I liked hip-hop before I saw You Got Served, but You Got Served is what got me into the culture of the dancing and the B-Boy steez of everything,” he told BET.
Jaden added, “Kids nowadays, they need to know where all this got started. They need to know how this all came about.”

When Jaden turned 18, he invited his family to join him in London to celebrate but seemed to have an alteriative motive.
“I was like, ‘Wow,” like that’s cool. So we go and hang out for his birthday and I’m like, ‘Man, that’s really good. He wanted his family with him,’” Will explained while on The Tonight Show.
Will added, “And then we go to a restaurant…and Jaden was just particularly excited and we sit down and he looked at the waiter and says, ‘I’ll have a tequila!’ I said ‘Woah, woah man. Hold up. What you doing? and he says, ‘The drinking age is 18 in England, dad. I was like, ‘You joker!’”

“We went to a restaurant, and Jaden was just particularly excited,” Will shared. “We sit down at the restaurant, and he looks at the waiter and he says, ‘I’ll have a tequila’ … He says, ‘The drinking age is 18 in England, Dad.’ I was like, ‘You joker!’”
He added, “I said, ‘Oh, but hold on, hold on, hold on. It’s only noon in L.A., and you weren’t born ’til 4, so you’re not 18 yet.’”
