Jada Pinkett Smith Recalls One Time She Woke Up Tied to a Doorknob

Jada Pinkett Smith is looking stunning in a hot pink dress while arriving for her appearance on Good Morning America on Thursday (July 20) in New York City.

The day before, Jada‘s hubby Will Smith was seen arriving at a theater for Conan’s San Diego Comic Con show in San Diego, Calif.

Jada‘s movie Girl’s Trip hits theaters on Friday, and she spoke about one trip she took with gal pals years back that has stuck in her mind.

“I do remember getting drunk and waking up and being tied to a doorknob,” Jada said. “It was one arm tied to a doorknob, like what happened? I had many drinks.”

Jada said there was no foul play involved, she was just wasted! “You just drank until you passed out, and that’s what I did,” she continued.

Jada Pinkett Smith Met Tupac When She Was a Drug Dealer

Jada Pinkett Smith is opening up about a time in her life she hasn’t talked about before.

The 45-year-old actress revealed she was a drug dealer when she met Tupac in an interview at SiriusXM Studios on Wednesday (July 19) in New York City.

“It’s kinda hard because I haven’t really told the whole story. One of the things that’s very interesting that I’ve never really said before is that when I first met Pac, when we first met, I was a drug dealer,” Jada said on Sway in the Morning. “Yes. And that was, to just give you, I won’t get into the details of it cause I’m write a book about it, just to give you like that’s how we started then as I was coming out, something very bad happened to me. As I was coming out of the life, he was going more into the life. And so I’ve been having kind of an existential crisis around Pac because I was coming out, he was going in and you know, there was a point in which we met and then we kind of were going our separate ways.”

“And I just felt like okay God one day you’re going to do for Pac what you did for me, which is you saved me,” Jada said. “And that just never happened for him. And so that is something that I am constantly having to confront, you know what I’m saying? And I think that that missing component that neither one of us have ever discussed because Pac and I’s relationship was about survival. That’s how it started. And I know that most people wanna always connect us in this romance thing, but that’s just because they don’t have the story.”

“But it was based in survival, how we held each other down, you know what I’m saying? And when we have somebody that has your back when you feel like you’re nothing, that’s everything,” she continued. “You know what I’m saying? And so there’s a lot of components to our story that we never shared, you know, for a very specific reason, and I just decided that one little piece was important to share finally because it gives more insight to who we were that it wasn’t just about, ‘you have this cute girl and this cool guy they must have been in this romance.’ Nah. It wasn’t that at all. It was about survival and it’s always been about survival between us, you know what I’m saying? And holding each other down in ways that only he and I could hold each other down.”

Jada Pinkett Smith Says She Won't Let Daughter Willow Watch 'Girls Trip!' (Video)

Jada Pinkett Smith won’t be allowing her 16-year-old daughter Willow to watch her new film Girls Trip… well, not really!

The 45-year-old actress and her co-star Regina Hall stopped by Build Series to promote the comedy on Monday (July 17) in New York City.

“I told Willow, ‘Now, you’re gonna have to do what I had to do as a teenager when I wasn’t supposed to be watching certain rated R movies, and that is not tell my mother and sneak in with my girlfriends,’” she explained. “I said, ‘I think this is one of those movies for you.’”

“She wanted to go to the premiere and I said, ‘Oh no, we won’t be doing that,’” Jada went on. “Jaden and Trey… my boys are grown so they’ll do whatever.”

She added, “Even though [Girls Trip] stars four African American women, it really is about sisterhood for all women. The themes are so universal – friendship, watching women come together when were going through tough times, and coming together to have a good time… you what I mean, a really good time! Usually, women aren’t given the same license as men to cut loose and just have fun.

Watch the interview below to find out more about what it was like on set, and don’t miss Girls Trip when it hits theaters this Friday (July 21)!
