Oftentimes in Hollywood, you hear folks go on and on about losing weight, being too heavy or needing to workout to look better, which is why Jada Pinkett Smith is making news for not only gaining weight, but being happy about it.
On her Facebook page, the 42 year old posted a pic of herself, her hubby Will, and their daughter Willow, all standing for photos at an event.
In the photo, Pinkett Smith sports a sexy leather black ensemble, looking at least 10 years younger than she really is. Not to mention she pulled the whole rock star look off wonderfully and looked more like a 30-something year old going to a concert, rather than a 42 year old who’s a mother of two.
The reason the actress posted the photo was to show that she put on some weight, and she feels really good about it. “My girlfriend sent me this pic, and I could clearly see the weight I’ve gained which is about 8-10 pounds,” she wrote.
In addition, Pinkett Smith said that she hopes she’ll be able to keep the weight on, because she believes it makes her look a lot better, but she worried a little bit about being ready for the Oscar Awards this Sunday.
“I think I will keep it,” she said, referring to the extra weight gain and her new curvier look. “I like being a little fuller. Let’s just hope it will fit in the Oscar dress. Here’s to loving our bodies by our own standards.”
Ever since the Baltimore native got her big break on the 90s NBC sitcom A Different World, she’s been known for being petite and having an extremely small frame, but that didn’t keep her from being a sex symbol of sorts, as countless rappers and actors pined for Pinkett Smith before she got married to Will.
And it’s safe to say some of them still have their eye on her, because she does look great, and that’s whether she’s 10 pounds heavier or not.
