Jada Pinkett Smith Celebrates Her 21st Wedding Anniversary
Jada Pinkett Smith marked her 21-year marriage to Will Smith by sharing a special New Year’s Eve episode of Red Table Talk on Facebook. In her conversation with her mother Adrienne and daughter Willow, Jada revealed their unique approach to their anniversary celebrations.
She discussed her forthcoming memoir that will chronicle her journey from suicidal depression to finding hope again. Published by Dey Street, an imprint of HarperCollins next fall, it will provide “an honest account of lessons learned during an incredible rollercoaster ride from despair to personal redemption.”
Pinkett Smith addressed her controversial moment during Red Table Talk that air on Christmas Day and lead to both she and Will being banned from Academy Awards events for 10 years. At that moment, the Matrix Reloaded and Girl’s Trip actor slapped Chris Rock after hearing him make jokes about her shaved head due to battle alopecia; then proceeded to tell him “keep my name out of your f-ing mouth”.
Hosted by Joss Whedon, this event honored his efforts towards gender equality in Hollywood and beyond. Jada made headlines at this event due to her hairdo that is similar to one she has worn alongside daughter Willow for some time now.
Jada completed her look with jewelry designer Glenn Spiro’s titanium and diamond earrings and an emerald-cut diamond ring – each the perfect accents to her form fitting green dress that showed off her incredible body.
In the same interview, the actress also addressed allegations that she’s cheating on her husband with Marc Anthony. She stated, “There have been rumors – it can be dangerous being a celebrity who speaks their mind openly about any matter – I think they must respect themselves and the rights of everyone around them.”
Jada and Will Smith share two children together, including Jaden Smith who made his big screen debut in 1995. Jada and Will first met when auditioning for Will’s onscreen girlfriend role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air; although she did not land it, they kept in contact and eventually began dating.
The couple is well-known for their advocacy of gender equality through both activism and film and television projects. They founded the Keep A Woman A Warrior foundation to raise awareness and fund women’s issues; made headlines with outspoken comments against sexual assault in the workplace; played an instrumental role in persuading President Obama to sign the Violence Against Women Act of 2013 into law; purchased out performances of Broadway play Ain’t No Mo’ to prevent premature closing due to poor ticket sales; this show is set for another run starting this April/2020; all this action was in addition to purchase out entire performances of Ain’t No Mo’ which will ensure its second run starts by purchasing out whole performances – this time from Ain’t No Mo’ which started back on Broadway starting this time around 2024!
