We're all for having pets, but snuggling up to a cat is a little different than sharing a bed with a snake ... er, right?
Willow Smith and her brother Jaden allow their pet snakes into their bedrooms, according to a source for Us Weekly. "Willow is obsessed with snakes," an insider tells the mag, adding that she "has 10 sleeping in her room" and "some aren't in cages!" Jaden "cuddles" with them in bed, and he even refers to his sister's pets as his "girlfriends."
Willow got her first boa constrictor in 2008 when she was 7 years old, and last year her mom Jada Pinkett Smith chatted with Redbook about how she finally caved in and let her daughter get a pet snake. "I've always loved snakes but was afraid of them," she said. "But Willow had wanted this one snake forever. She'd go into the pet store and pick it up and wrap it around her. I'd never touched a snake before, and I put out my hand, and Beauty [mimics the snake slithering up her arm]. I've been in love with her ever since. I said to Willow, 'You did Mommy a big favor. You helped me overcome a fear.'"
Well then! That doesn't seem so bad, right?
