Jada Pinkett Smith is revealing how she successfully juggles being a wife, mom, actress and staying healthy in the latest issue of Health. The beautiful 43-year-old Gotham actress dishes on how she stays in shape and much more in the issue. Check out some snippets from the interview below:
On Her Fitness Regimen:
It’s funny—my cardio workout varies. If I have a heavy carb week, I’ve got a heavy cardio week. I tell people all the time, “You can eat whatever you want, as long as you’re willing to put the work in,” and that’s a thing I had to learn. So I make sure I do something physical every single day. But that doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym and freakin’ kill yourself! I do 20 minutes of cardio a day. Everybody’s thinking you gotta be in the gym for an hour and a half. Literally, I’m never in the gym longer than 45 minutes. Just be consistent—that’s it!
On Keeping A Good Attitude About Getting Older:
Because it is what it is! I’m getting older! I’ve never looked at myself as, like, a beauty. I’m not sore on the eye, but I know there’s always going to be somebody more beautiful—always. My grandmother used to say to me, “It’s not about what you look like on the outside. It’s what you look like on the inside.” So she helped me learn at an early age to be well-rounded, to be spiritual, to be compassionate.
On Date Night with Will:
A lot of times, we’ll do it at the house because when we go out it can be a little hectic. So we have different places around our yard where we like to set up a little Arabian tent, pillows, wine and cheese, candlelight. Will likes really thought-out productions.
