Jada Pinkett Smith took to Facebook to let the world know that she realizes that she has put on about 8 – 10 pounds, but she’s perfectly okay with it. And while she likes her new curves, she’s a bit concerned that her dress won’t fit come Sunday night when she walks the red carpet at the 86th Annual Academy Awards.
Smith noticed her extra pounds when a friend of hers posted a picture of the 42-year-old actress with her husband Will Smith and her daughter Willow. The photo was at a UFC match at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
She wrote on her personal Facebook page that she could clearly see the weight gain but that she liked it.
Perhaps Smith will keep the extra weight in order to pack more of punch for the upcoming Fox prequel Batman series called Gotham. The actress has been cast by Warner Bros. Television to play a villain named Fish Mooney. Never heard of her? That’s because it’s an original character that the new television show has created, she’s never appeared in any of the comics or Batman films. The villain is described as a “sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner.”
Imdb.com’s tagline for the one hour drama, “The origin story behind Commissioner James Gordon’s rise to prominence in Gotham City in the years before Batman’s arrival.” The show will be set at the beginning of Gordon’s days as a policeman when he just meets a young boy named Bruce Wayne, perhaps while investigating the murder of his parents.
Ben McKenzie (Southland and The O.C.) has been cast as the lead character Jim Gordon. Bruno Heller, the creator of The Mentalist, will executive produce and write.
