Jada Pinkett Smith, who stars in the TV drama “Hawthorne,” recently shared how she and hubby Will Smith get it in, in of all places Good Housekeeping Magazine.
Speaking of places, Jada said the couple are liable to do it anywhere.
“It’s crazy the risks that we take,” she said. “But that’s what keeps it so much fun.”
But sex wasn’t all Jada spilled about, talking in detail about the maturation process that she’s undergone since rising on the scene in the early 1990s.
Jada said now at 37, she’s just really being able to feel comfortable in her own skin and “embrace my womanliness, and understanding that compassion is where the power lies.”
Jada, who hails from Baltimore, Maryland, said her mind-set has changed with marriage and kids.
“Because of my background, I had to be tough and take on a lot of masculine energy for protection. When I got into my 30s, I started to become more receptive. I think it had a lot to do with becoming a wife and mother. I realized, Whoa, wait a minute, I’m a girl — I don’t have to fight like that!”
Jada got into acting by attending the Baltimore School for the Arts, where she befriended a student by the name of Tupac Shakur.
In 2006, exactly 10 years after his death, Jada donated $1 million to the performing arts school in his memory.
Her break into the business came when she applied for the job of choreographer for “In Living Color,” created by Keenan Ivory Wayans. Although she didn’t get the job, Wayans turned her on to an agent who secured TV and movie roles for her.
Jada said age has brought maturity and “more comfort in my skin and in the world than I did in my 20s.”
“At that age, you’re looking for the dude to take care of you, or your mom. In your 30s, you start to connect with your own internal power. Once I decided to take care of myself, then everything else that was supposed to fall in place did.”
Jada said as two working professionals it’s important to make time for sex. “Always. No matter how busy we are,” she said. “And if I told you the places! You would not even believe!”
