Willow Smith Is Still Just 13, Right?

You might not remember this, but once upon a time, Willow Smith, that precocious young daughter of Will Smith, was going to play the title role in that remake of "Annie." That didn't work out, so Quvenzhané Wallis took the role instead, but just in case you were curious about what happened to Willow, let's hear her totally mature, totally not weird at all statement on the matter:

"I just wanted to chill, and be at home, and decompress, and just find out what I wanna do and where I stand on this planet, with the little tiny place we have. I just feel like I want to do it different than the world's ready for. I'm enjoying just being independent and doing my own thing."

Look, Willow is 13. It's obviously fine if she doesn't want to be in movies, but what does she need to "chill and decompress" from? I guess middle school must be real hard these days. Especially when you're an "independent" middle schooler who's trying to find out where you stand on this planet. That's got to be, like, major stress.

Willow's great and everything, but would it really kill her and everyone else to let her be a kid for a little bit?

This little toddler really needs to get a serious reality check by popping her head up , looking around and seeing that she`s actually standing on "our planet" and not the one she thinks she`s on.
Maybe her folks could help by.......oh wait!!
