This month, Hollywood megastar Jada Pinkett Smith glows on the cover of REDBOOK. In the July issue, the actress, singer, activist and mother of two, opens up about tabloid rumors, family time and producing the upcoming talk show, The Queen Latifah Show. Check out the highlights from the interview below.
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.”
