Jada Pinkett Smith poses with her mom Adrienne Banfield and her daughter Willow Smith for Redbook magazine’s July issue and chats about how she makes time for her family, her upcoming projects and the one thing that would make her leave her husband of 16 years Will.
On why she would never 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.”
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 which premieres 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.”
