Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals She ‘Had an Unhealthy Relationship to Porn’ [Video]

Jada Pinkett Smith says she was addicted to porn in a new episode of Red Table Talk.

via Complex:

“I wasn’t in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not, thank goodness,” Pinkett Smith said to her co-hosts, daughter, Willow Smith, and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones.

Pinkett Smith continued, “I actually feel like I was using ‘addiction’ a little lightly. And maybe I’ll say now that I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life where I was trying to practice abstinence.”

The actress has been married to Will Smith for almost 22 years, and said she ended up using porn because she felt an “emptiness,” adding that porn gave her “false expectations” when connecting with partners.

In the 23-minute episode, Pinkett Smith, Willow, and Banfield-Jones talked about the shame surrounding the enjoyment of porn, but how an addiction to porn can negatively impact a person’s career and personal relationships.

Jada Pinkett Smith Says She’s Studied Scientology Teachings, But She’s Not a Scientologist: ‘I Practice Human Kindness’

Jada Pinkett Smith took to Twitter to deny Leah Remini’s claims that she’s a Scientologist.

Earlier this week, Leah Remini told The Daily Beast that Jada was a member of the church. 

“I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech,” Jada tweeted early Tuesday, referencing the set of written ideals originated by L. Ron Hubbard, who first published what would later become the foundation for Scientology practices in 1950. “But I am not a Scientologist.”

Jada attributes her Dianetics studies to a broader appreciation of world religions.

Remini, who recently won an Emmy for her Scientology-exposing A&E docu-series “Scientology and the Aftermath,” told The Daily Beast on Saturday that she had frequently seen Pinkett Smith at Scientology-related events and locations.

“I know Jada’s in. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology a long time,” Remini said. “I never saw Will [Smith] there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. They opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time.”

In 2008, the Smiths opened a private school that raised concerns because some of its teachers were members of the Church of Scientology. Both Smiths have repeatedly insisted that they aren’t Scientologists themselves.

‘Girls Trip’ Debuts with the Largest Box Office Opening Weekend for a Live-Action Comedy in 2017!

‘Girls Trip’ is making a huge splash at the box office this weekend.

As of now, it’s headed for a $30.4 million No. 2 opening weekend — the largest of any live-action comedy so far this year. That number not only doubled expectations for the film, but it’s also more than the film’s budget, which was a little under $20 million.

via Variety:

“Funny is funny. And it’s a really funny movie,” said Universal’s President of Domestic Distribution Nick Carpou, who pointed out that the $30 million number is an increasingly rare achievement for pure comedies. 

“Girls Trip” follows a foursome — Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, and Jada Pinkett Smith — who go out for a long overdue women’s weekend to New Orleans for the Essence Music Festival. Director Malcolm D. Lee is also known for his first feature, “The Best Man,” and its follow-up, “The Best Man Holiday.”

“Our four leads are excellent,” Carpou said. “If they make you laugh you’re likely to tell your friends. That’s what’s happening here,” he added, also pointing to the film’s marketing campaign and Lee’s ability to make films that “resonate.”

Congrats to the cast and crew!

EXCLUSIVE: Tupac Movie Producer LT Hutton Blasts Jada Pinkett-Smith: We did NOT misrepresent you in “All Eyez On Me”!

TheJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, LT Hutton, the producer behind the Tupac movie “All Eyez On Me”, is responding to Jada Pinkett-Smith’s most recent comments. As you know, Jada has spoken publicly about how she dislikes the way her relationship with the late rapper was portrayed in the film. In a recent interview, Jada stated,

“What you’re seeing in regards to my relationship with 2Pac is not true. My relationship with Pac would have shown people a true—what he truly was. Cause it’s one thing to see Pac’s persona, publicly, and who he was personally.”

“I felt like it was exploitative of me and Pac – how they used our relationship to sell a movie. And I just felt like it was tomb raiding, in regards to Pac. I feel like we as black people, we have got to protect those individuals that we say are important to us, to our history and to our culture. We can not expect other people to do that if we’re not willing to do that ourselves. Pac is precious to us.”

Hutton has responded to her comments, telling us exclusively,

First off, she had 4 scenes. [There’s] no way that they could sell a movie off that.

He also shared a photo dated for July 2016, with Jada on set chatting with Demetrius Shipp Jr., the actor who played Tupac.

Hutton also noted that Jada discussed her relationship in a 2015 interview.

Hutton adds,

From her own words!!! I repeat, where did I misrepresent her? The only conversation that did not happen was I wanted Tupac [to] tell the world about what she meant to him, so I let him through a poem he wrote, [to] also show his poetic artistry side.

Well okay then. Maybe Jada was hoping to have more expressed in the movie. It appears that after her latest interview that the love for Tupac is still very present. May not have been a Will and Jada had Tupac still been around.

“What you’re seeing in regards to my relationship with 2Pac is not true. My relationship with Pac would have shown people a true—what he truly was. ‘Cause it’s one thing to see Pac’s persona, publicly, and who he was personally,” she said.

“I thought it was just handled in a very disrespectful way, and I felt like it was exploitive of me and Pac, how they used our relationship to sell a movie, and I just felt like it was tomb-raiding in regards to Pac,” she continued.

Jada also felt like those behind the film their relationship to sell the movie to the public.

“And if you’re really saying that you’re honoring a man’s legacy, then honor his legacy. And if you don’t have the story, fall back until you do,” she chastised. “I feel like we, as black people, we have got to protect those individuals that we say are important to us, to our history and to our culture. We cannot expect other people to do that if we’re not willing to do that ourselves. Pac is precious to us.”
