Jada Pinkett Smith Covers Ebony Magazine

Jada Pinkett Smith dishes on the truth behind her marriage to Will Smith, Scientology and new TV show in the June 2009 issue of Ebony magazine, as shot by photo duo Smallz & Raskind.

The 5-foot-tall powerhouse is in control and living life to the fullest as she awaits the premiere of her new TNT drama, HawthoRNe. Jada, 37, is surprisingly forthcoming about her marriage to Will, her views on the Church of Scientology and even the Internet rumors: “You want people to talk about you, because once they stop talking about you that’s when you’re really in trouble! I’m happy to have people talk about all the craziness they want to talk about, whether it’s things like every year we’re getting divorced or we’re an open family or Will‘s gay, or I’m gay.”

Jada Pinkett Smith is proof that good things come in small packages.

    #5, I think it’s Herve Leger…

  • mia

    Love the pose in the red and white Herve Leger bandage dress, which shows off her fabulous figure perfectly. I’ll always admire this woman.

  • mertz

    i love her and will and the fam. go pinkett smith’s yeaaa. look at her almost 40 and looking so pretty.

  • Yeah right

    She is like the Katie Holmes to Will Smith. I never liked her at all. Get so tired of her talking about how perfect her marriage is. She wants the media attention so bad she can smell it. She has a show coming on and I am sure her marriage to Will has finally paid off.

    Will Smith has changed so much. He is into all this crazy stuff and it is her influence. She is not my favorite. And why no screams of them pimping their kids every chance they get.. Oh wait that is just for a certain group of celebs.

  • RD

    She looks great in that Herve Legar dress and looks taller than 5 in the last pic

  • blah

    why is she famous again? She did a few movies, married Will SMith, so what?

  • jaye

    This woman is soooooo pretentious. She THINKS she can sing and she can barely act. She wouldn’t have a career if it wasn’t that Will Smith is her husband. She’s proof that it pays to have a famous rich husband.

  • pop86

    These are some of the best photos of Jada.

    @#12: Jada has too much self-confidence to be “Katie Holmes”.

  • silentsophi

    She is gorgeous.


    great shoot!

  • Jaz

    They’re not both gay?? this is news to me…LOL jk
    But I could see why people would think that…if you look at the pictures of them together, Jada is the one with the muscular arms, strong cheekbones, square chin, and barely smiling in pictures.
    And will has big lips, pink clothes on, woman’s cheeks and a big gorgeous smile. Its like they reversed roles.

  • me

    Love her. She’s gorgeous!

  • zOE

    Last time I checked, Will Smith said they had an open marriage. Who is lying?

  • Angie

    She is so damned sexy!! damn!

  • raquel

    #12. Could NOT agree with you more. Jada and Will have joined the Sci Fi chip that wacko Cruise steers. She wants everyone to think she’s classy, but she’s still street inside and shows it when she’s not pretending to be all Ms. Sohpisticated. Don’t know why anyone would care about this woman. Fake Ass that she is!!

  • raquel

    No one would know who she was if she wasn’t married to Will. She’s a horrible actress and I’ve heard her sing — AWFUL!! At least Katie had a TV show and she’s a decent enough actress. Sad she got hooked into the Sci Fi ship because what could have been a good career has been totally destroyed.

    These are flattering pictures of her but ‘Yeah Right IS right. She’s a Will controller. Her mouth smiles but her eyes don’t. Wouldn’t trust her with a bargepole. She’s Tom, he’s Katie.

  • http://justjared Kelli

    I just love me some Jada. I think she is everything wrapped up in one little lady. Her and Will are my favorite couple of all times. They are just so down to earth and so real. I know we don’t like know know these people, but you can tell in all their interviews that they are just GOOD PEOPLE! There is absolutely no one else that you can couple these two with other than EACH OTHER… They were born to be TOGETHER!!!!

    Will and Jada: Continue to do WHATEVER it is that you are doing …for yourselves, for each other, and for your beautiful family…

    I pray many many blessings for your life…
