Jada Pinkett Smith lands half the cover of Redbook Magazine!

Anyone else find it odd that Jada Pinkett Smith is having to share the cover with all this other random stuff? She couldn’t get her own cover? Looks like they’re just squeezing her on there!

In the interview she talks about Will Smith again. I understand she probably gets asked in every interview about him – but I’m getting tired of hearing her talk about how great her marriage is. Anyhoo, here are some clips from the interview:

On why she would ever leave her husband, Will Smith:
“What is the thing that Will could do to make me not love him? That would make me abandon him? I can’t think of one. I’m sorry. Except if he did something bad to the kids – now we’ve got a problem.”

On how they find special moments in everyday life:
“We tend to find magic in the mundane. Picking Willow up from her girlfriend’s house at 9:30PM, and enjoying that ride together, then stopping at 7-Eleven to get some ice cream as a family.”

On not being interested in reality shows and tabloids:
“I have been affected by gossip and I know people who have been too. I’ve seen marriages destroyed by gossip. It is cruel. At the end of the day, all that matters is: Do you love what you see when you look in the mirror? That is it, baby.”

On producing The Queen Latifah Show (premiering Sept 16th on CBS):
“It will be a cross between Oprah and Ellen – not serious but heartfelt…to help execute this idea for such an amazing artist is really pleasing. I’m able to be creative on a whole different level.”

Jada Pinkett Smith: “I don’t eat for pleasure”

So THAT’S what I’m doing wrong!!

Jada Pinkett Smith, 40,  has revealed how she stays so tiny. She’s sacrificed the joy of food to maintain her small frame.

The wife of Will Smith tells Essence magazing, “I don’t eat for pleasure.”

“[I] had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook,” she explains.

“She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don’t eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that’s healthy.”

The Madagascar 3 star does treat herself to French fries and pizza – but only allows it on rare occasions.

She adds: ‘I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don’t fall flat on my face.’

Jada, whose two children Willow, 11, and Jaden, 13, have both followed their parents into showbusiness, is planning to star in a movie with her husband Will, 43.

She says: “He can’t wait. He was like, “You and me, next.” I was like…. “Let’s do it!”‘

Will, of course, has been busy promoting the third installment of his hugely successful Men in Black franchise.

The couple, who have been married since 1997, have denied rumours they are heading for divorce.

That’s it – I’m giving up the joy of eating.
