Justice Smith Is Slamming Comparisons Between His New Show 'Genera+ion' & 'Euphoria'

Justice Smith Is Slamming Comparisons Between His New Show 'Genera+ion' & 'Euphoria'

Justice Smith is not here for those comparing his new HBO Max series Genera+ion to Euphoria.

The 25-year-old actor stars as Chester in the show, which just premiered it’s first three episodes on the streaming platform.

While speaking with E! News, Justice shared that she is “its own beast” and the only way it is “similar to Euphoria in that there are teenagers on the show.”

“It’s this crazy double standard that we do as a society where we view all content that has high schoolers or teenagers in it as being a part of the same monolith,” he added about the comparisons. “But then, we don’t do that with any other generation. We don’t say that shows about people in their 30s are all alike, you know, but for some reason when it’s high schoolers these are all the same. And they’re not.”

“When you’re showcasing shows about modern times it’s like, everyone exists within the same cultural zeitgeist,” Justice continued. “So, of course, there’s gonna be like, cell phones are gonna be a thing or TikTok is gonna be a thing or makeup is gonna be a thing ’cause this is just what kids are doing nowadays.”

He also added that Genera+ion is “gay as f–k” and that they are “trying to highlight queerness and how predominate it is in generation Z.”

You can check out the trailer for the series HERE. The first three eps are out now, with the next two on March 18th, two on March 25th and one more on April 1st. Eight more episodes will comprise the second half of the season, premiering later this year.

Justice Smith Opens Up About People Thinking He's Will Smith's Son

Justice Smith Opens Up About People Thinking He's Will Smith's Son

Justice Smith is dishing on being confused for being related to Will Smith!

Though the two share the same last name, they are not related, and the 25-year-old actor opened up about the confusion.

“There was this video essay that I saw here someone was like, ‘Justice Smith, he’s banking off of nepotism. He didn’t work for anything that he has.’ Who do they think my father is? Then I realized it was Will Smith,” Justice told Jimmy Kimmel.

He then added that he has met Will, but he actually got really star struck by Jaden Smith on their Netflix show The Get Down.

“I worked with his son Jaden on the show I did, called The Get Down, and I don’t normally get star struck with people but I got really star struck with him,” he shared. “When I get star struck, I act like I don’t care. Like, I act really indifferent, so he was like, ‘Hey, um…’ He came to one of our rehearsals, he was like, ‘Hey, uh, great job in the rehearsal,’ and I like looked away and I was like, what am I doing?”

“But then he was so nice. He came again to set, he was like so kind,” Justice added.

Justice also talked about growing up in Anaheim and working at Knott’s Berry Farm after getting denied from Disneyland. Check out his interview here!

Justice Smith Comes Out as Queer in Powerful Post About Black Lives Matter

Justice Smith has come out as queer.

The 24-year-old All the Bright Places actor took to his Instagram on Friday (June 5) to share a post about the Black Lives Matter movement, while adding that black, queer people need to be part of the revolution.

“@nckash and I protested today in New Orleans. We chanted ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ ‘Black Queer Lives Matter’ ‘All Black Lives Matter,’” Justice wrote. “As a black queer man myself, I was disappointed to see certain people eager to say Black Lives Matter, but hold their tongue when Trans/Queer was added. I want to reiterate this sentiment: if your revolution does not include Black Queer voices, it is anti-black.”

“The revolution is not about appeal,” Justice added. It is about demanding what should have been given to us from the beginning. What should have been given to black, queer, and trans individuals from the beginning. Which is the right to exist. To live and prosper in public. Without fear of persecution or threat of violence.”

Also in his post, Justice revealed that he is dating Queen Sugar actor Nicholas L. Ashe, calling him his “rock.”

There is so much tragedy on the timeline these last couple of days so I added some photos of me and Nic to show some #blackboyjoy #blacklove #blackqueerlove ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜,” Justice wrote. “You’ve been my rock and guiding light through all of this and I love you so much. I know that on the other side of this Is change, though the fight is far from over.”
