In 2001, Smith was quoted as saying, "I started Home Improvement when I was 7, and the show ended when I was 16. I never had the chance to decide what I wanted to do with my life. When I was 16, I knew that I didn't want to act anymore."
At seventeen years old, he married Heidi Van Pelt on April 27, 2001. The marriage sparked much controversy due to the couple's age difference - Van Pelt was sixteen years Smith's senior. The couple filed for divorce on February 2, 2007.
In 2005, Smith and his then-wife formed a California-based non-dairy cheese manufacturer and restaurant, Playfood, specializing in vegan and organic foods.
Smith was arrested under the suspicion of DUI and possession of marijuana on February 1, 2012.
