Jada Pinkett Smith Dishes About Work, Family & Will Smith
She plays many roles to perfection: actress and philanthropist, wife and mother, rocker and red carpet beauty. As she celebrates nine years of marriage to
Hollywood heartthrob Will Smith -- and her latest film Reign Over Me with Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle hitting theaters in March -- Jada Pinkett Smith has a lot
to smile about.
In the latest issue of Tango magazone on newsstands now, Smith dishes about her career, her body, and how she found her Fresh Prince.
On how her and Will first met: “I met him when I was 19 at an audition for The Fresh Prince of Bel- Air. After we had known each other for many years, we went out
for dinner one night [with mutual friends] and I saw that he had grown from this lanky kid to this really responsible man. We started courting each other and our
friendship turned into romance.”
On the craziest thing she has done for love: ““I jumped off a roof into a pool while we were in Jamaica, not knowing I could have broken my neck! I was very out of
my mind, and Will was mad at me. He was sitting in a lounge chair when he saw me fall out of the sky screaming, I love you, Will!”
On what’s it like now that 8-year-old son Jaden is acting: “It’s so amazing. It reminds me of when we lived in an agricultural society, when it took the whole family to
pitch in for survival. And now, to have our son learn what we know and to take him into our spaces of how we feed the familythat is a gift. We’re happy to pass on
something that we love and something we know how to do.”
On her metal band, Wicked Wisdom: “I wanted a platform where I could express the other personality I have inside of methe person who needs to be free and be
angry and not be politically correct at all times. The one who can growl, scream, and jump around. One of my fans nicknamed me “the screaming banshee!” [The
stage] is a complete freedom space where I don’t have to be perfect. On the red carpet, there’s this need for perfection.”
