Taran Noah Smith

Taran Noah Smith was a child actor playing the role of “Mark Taylor” on “Home Improvement” between 1991 and 1999. Home Improvement fans often couldn’t remember his real name, and instead affectionately referred to him as “the ugly kid on Home Improvement.”

He was only 7 years old when Home Improvement started. He looked a little bit dorky in his first years on the show but appeared to be normal on the surface. Here’s a picture of Taran in his youth:



Puberty, unfortunately, was not kind to Taran, as he started breaking out in acne and quickly grew tall and lanky to the point at which he was several inches taller than Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who played his older brother on the show. By the time Home Improvement finally went off the air in 1999, Smith was a really goofy-looking teenager. He also seemed to look more and more gay with each successive season of the show. Here are some pictures of Smith partying with several guys who appear to be flaming gay (I can only speculate as to what kind of hijinx were going on at their party):




In 2001, at age 17, he married Heidi Van Pelt, a 33-year-old woman (they are shown together in the first picture below). He also sued his parents for control of a $1.5 million trust fund created with his Home Improvement earnings that his parents were pilfering. It’s unclear as to whether Smith married Van Pelt to get away from his parents, cover up the fact that he’s gay, or whether he indeed feel in love with her. One thing that is certain, however, is that Smith is a grease-ball who hasn’t washed his face or hair since about 1989, as one can clearly in the second picture below which was taken in September 2005. Smith is dressed as though he’s going to a costume party – someone should tell him that he should wait until Halloween before dressing up as a freak and going out in public. All of this makes him one washed-up celebrity!



Update - July 17, 2007

Taran Noah Smith has become far more washed up than anyone could have ever predicted. It certainly seems as though Van Pelt was only after Smith's money, as his parents had initially warned him about. He and Van Pelt divorced on February 2, 2007 and he recently lost his house to foreclosure. It
was reported that he and/or Van Pelt completely trashed his 4 bedroom/4 bath house located in the Los Angeles suburb of Sherman Oaks. Apparently the entire house reeks of the smell of "shit" and "piss," holes have been punched in the walls, and odd messages are spray painted all of the inside of the house. A real estate tear-sheet for teh house reads "Absolutely the worst house in a prime location," and the house is now on the market for a mere $1.149 million.

Smith's lawyer blamed the damage on his ex-wife, saying "You can thank his golddigging ex-wife for the debacle he's in."




Update - August 10, 2007

Smith was recently interviewed by the National Enquirer about his recent divorce. Smith said, "I guess I'm living proof that love is blind. I've lost my house, and now I'm fighting to stop my wife from taking my livelihood away from me. I'm done with older women."

Smith also mentioned that the reason he recently left his wife was because she announced she preferred girls to guys. He said the couple agreed to have an open marriage, yet when Taran found a steady girlfriend, his angry wife smashed every dish they owned.

Smith also said that "friends" were the ones who trashed his home in Sherman Oaks. Meanwhile, Taran has apologized to his parents. "I had to go back to them and say: 'I'm sorry. You were right about Heidi.'"


Update - February 1, 2012

Taran Noah Smith was arrested at around 1:00 A.M. on February 1, 2012 in Los Angeles County for a DUI and alleged possesion of marijuana. Smith was reportedly parked at an odd angle next to a fire hydrant in his 1998 Honda when a police officer decided to investigate and was overcome by the smell of marijuana emanating from Smith's car. It is unclear whether Smith was alone in his car at the time or whether any of his creepy party buddies shown in the pictures above were with him at the time.

I heard he went gay for a little while and tried to fuck Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who is a closeted queer.

I like that picture with the guy blindfolded. I'm betting money cocks went into every orifice on that guy while he was blindfolded and he had to guess who was who by taste of seed and the feeling of their cock.

He reminds me of some heroin using druggie who has to blow senators for money to get his fix. I can see him getting into some leather fag bar and cum guzzling the whole establishment. He has probably been with many men who have beaten and raped him and then came inside his asshole to prove he is a bitch.

Fucking hell people! What the hell is wrong with you? Or more-or-less, what the hell is wrong with this site that doesn't have moderators to remove the filth that you are all posting?!?!?

Okay... he needs to give up the drug habit, return his clothes to The Brady Bunch and buy himself some Clearasil. Otherwise, there is nothing wrong with him. He may be gay (and most of the evidence points this way) or he may not be, but all the anal sex references are just wrong.

He was cute when he was younger, and with a bit of grooming and fashion advice he's no worse now. Clearly all of you bloody queens can provide such graphic details since you regularly practice the same acts yourselves. And I bet you are all soooo much better looking (not). Or perhaps you are, after all - with all your intelligence you better work pretty hard at your only chance in life otherwise.

The only thing my dad hated about Home Improvement was him and his crappy acting skills, especially in the last couple of seasons.

I always liked the episodes where Brad and Randy would make fun of him, which was pretty much every episode.

How about I donkey punch those morals out of you? Homo butt love is a special thing! How dare you come here and judge us like some Old Testament God! I am a big star in the gay scene and would love to show you the ropes. I would tie you up shoot some white wee-wee on you, slap you around a bit then invite my troupe of garbage men to gang bang you. Some of theses guys are pretty greasy, so I would be prepared to get dirty.

I saw this comment posted over at TMZ:

"103. I lived at that house with Taran and Heidi. I could tell TMZ and you all some interesting stories. Taran's lawyer stated that you can thank his gold digging ex-wife for the debacle he's in, well that may be partly true, but I will tell you that Taran had just as much to do with the collapse of the home that now needs so much improvement, not to mention the extreme makeover his financial life needs too. He partied too much and was not responsible enough. He did not know how to manage his money and was too easily influenced to spend his money foolishly by Heidi. It was a constant party laced with many business ideas and creative projects that never went anywhere for the most part. Taran's a good guy and has a great heart. I believe he will pull out of this. But the best thing that ever happened to him was the separation from his surrogate mom/girlfriend, Heidi Van Pelt. Though she also has a good heart deep down and can seem charming and fun on the surface, she is a snake that will turn around and bite you in the back the moment you are not looking.

You know... the only name I DONT see is Zachery Ty Bryan! What's wrong with the editor of the website!!! Oh wait... while Taran lost his house which reeks and stuff, gained his PLAYFOOD INC. Company through a lawsuit and ran away from his parents to Maui because his parents were squandering money (outside "no one cares crap"), Zachery Ty Bryan went out to get a "Gatorade" , partied, got tasered by hotel security and is suing for $25 million from Choice Hotels (you know usual Hollywood crap). Plus he actually did a few small roles in some major TV shows. Either way my point is Zach might have been more "succesful" in TV, but, Taran is more succesful at Playfood Inc. (company that he gained control of) and Jonathan is more succesful at graduating from Harvard with a double major. Although they haven't acted in years. WHOEVER IS RUNNING THIS WEBSITE, REPORT ON ZACHERY TY BRYAN!

He might have done stupid things as we all do in life, but at least he tried new things in life. He actually is a good actor n person. Who cares what his sexual prefernce is or what he does with his money. It's his life and he has a right to keep that to himself.

Most of these people posting messages on here throwing around the word "faggot" are ignorant. The most homophobic people in life are the ones that are in the deep closet.

I hope to see Smith in new and exciting roles

Taran's parents did call the police. One of the cops actually said "Is she cute?" when they came by. The law isn't always applied properly when star kids are involved. There is kind of an expectation of them going off the deep end and are even encouraged. The story about his parents blowing his money is bogus. They invested his trust with court approval and made him and extra 600K during the 90s. It's all gone. He's doing much better since he split with Heidi. He apologized to his parents which must have been hard since they had to sell their house to pay the lawyer to try to keep them from getting the trust money before he was 18. Getting all that money at 18 is such a bad idea but he made the money and he's an adult at 18. Nothing anybody can do about it. He invited his parents to go to Burning Man with him, and has recently worked with his Dad on a new low energy mobile water purifier that will be used for disaster relief and loves a good protest against those who are raping the planet. Sorry to disappoint so many here but the one thing he's not is gay. He has no problem with gay people but is not interested. He lost the house when the money ran out but didn’t trash it. Somebody else did that and even someone came in and stole the copper pipe. I saw it myself before it was torn down. Taran didn’t get a divorce; it was an annulment so it never happened as far as the law is concerned. Heidi was trying to get more money out of Taran even though it was all gone, telling lawyers he had money so they would take her case. They found out the hard way what a lying whack job she is. The one thing he learned from her was how to cook great vegan food.

Anonymous said...

I kind of feel sorry for the guy. This older woman taking advantage of a kid who was still very impressionable. Sounds like to me she was just another Gold digger who did not care about Taran. All she cared about was getting his money. He should have thought twice about that woman and make her sign a prenuptial agreement. If he does have complete control of the business now, and does decide to marry again. He really needs to have the woman sign a prenup. Or if he decides to start acting again.

Just about everyone else's post's that I have read so far have been too critical.

John Q said...

I must set the record straigh on a few things. I know Heidi to be a kind and especially generous person. Heidi is a compassionate girl. (That's why she won't eat meat) She was in my cirle from 1988 to 1999. She always went for guys like this actor dude -- most of whom were penniless -- so don't conclude Heidi's a gold digger. She just likes creative people. That's why she liked me. I think this site is all envious people about beaking down famous people -- when we should realize that famous people are flawed... just famous.

I feel real sorry for Taran, I hope he comes to his senses and realize there's still a girlfriend for him.

Taran clearly needs to just cum to terms with his sexuality and cum out of the closet hes been hiding in for the past decade with some gold digging whore...he's young enough to change the road he's been on...he just needs to move on with the rest of his life...and stay away from the drugs..he dosent need a bunch of people talking crap about how washed up he is he needs a big cock to fill his hungry hole i think thats painfully obvious given the pictures from that party

I think it's funny that people call him 'washed up'. I read an old article back when Home Improvement was ending where Taran said he didn't want to act anymore. His parents put him into the acting gig when he was 7, before he knew what he wanted then when the show was over, he had no desire to act again.

"Washed up" Only really applies to people trying to be a celebrity but fail at it. It doesn't look like Taran ever tried. He just did his job, that's all.

Everything since the HI gig is unfortunate but I've read recently that he's doing well. Silly story here if you ask me and personally I think people posting negatively about him is stupid. What do you care if he is or is not gay? Clearly the homophobia on here means you're trying to surprise your own desires...

Taran is a very nice guy. I met him at a party (I will not say where to protect his privacy) He seems happy and well adjusted. I never would of guessed anyone thought he was "gay".

It was a pretty sizable job i did for Taran and he was great to work for. hiedi was polite and friendly as well and i went to one of their vegan get togethers later and tried the enchiladas... mmm to die for. so i hate to see all the nasty stuff written by guys that obviously lack intelligence, but i have learned in my lifetime that those are the majority. Taran I hope things go well for you in the future and thanks for the security install biz!!!
sorry marriage went south, mine did too but i wound up with a phenominal new wife. so again i wish you the best... GREG

Taran Noah Smith, a former child star best known for his work on "Home Improvement," got himself in some big trouble earlier this year when he got arrested for a DUI and felony drug possession, and now he's paying for it. The Taran Noah Smith DUI case has been resolved now that the 28-year-old has pled "guilty" to the possession of hash and "no contest" to the fact he was driving under the influence of marijuana.

TMZ reports that Smith has been arrested and charged, and was sentenced to a 12-hour program for the DUI and a 6-month drug diversion program for the drug possession. He's also facing three years of probation, and is due back in court in June.

He's also very very short by seeing the photos, She was about 5'6 and when they stood next to each he wasn't much taller if any he's def NOT 5'6 he's around 5'3 but still cute though. Taran on the other hand God bless him no ones perfect. Leave the guy alone!

This guy was the worst part of Home Improvement. For the first season he was the cute little kid but then as he got older it became apparent that he could not act for shit. I don't know why the producers didn't slap some mandatory acting classes on him. No wonder they gave all the good story lines to JTT. They should have written Mark Taylor off like they did Judy Winslow on Family Matters.

Anonymous said...

This kid gets me. Like last comment has said the first season he was cute "and because of his age no one really cared over his acting ability" As the years went by it was clear that this kid had no acting ability. I think Home Improvement director didn't want to change out actors but gave up putting the kid through acting classes so change him to a emo character. With such a long run on the show it swelled his head and gave him a somewhat good resume where he landed a couple movie roles swelling his head more until truth finally hit that HE COULDN'T ACT AT ALL! So he quit acting but made it sound like he "CHOSE" to quit in reality he was forced. He then published a cry baby story book on how he had no child hood just for his last "claim to fame" which didn't last long so he then fucked up his entire life with false accusation about spending his money only because he didn't have money rolling in no more. He then married the first slut he deemed fit to fully upset his parents, and then came crying back home once things went sour in his marriage, and he was a total drug doing failure as a man, a human, and as a mammal. His looks "which was the only thing he had" was gone and he lost everything and everyone in his life. I only would give him credit that he hasn't committed suicide but in reality who really would care if he did. Now he get paid by only reruns of Home Improvement. What a pathetic life!

Anonymous said...

All the weird stories of his divorce, etc. aside, there is no dispute that Smith walked away from acting by choice. He got pushed pretty hard as a kid, including by his folks, to act, and he grew up and literally reached the age of reason while a part of the Home Improvement cast. It was his decision to get out of acting and do what he wanted to do, including open and run a health food restaurant.
