I’ve always liked Jada Pinkett Smith. She’s mysterious and cool and confident, and obviously beautiful. I found this list of hers in my mindless poolside reading material, 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me…I think #5, 6, 9, 10, 16, 17, 18, 22 and 23 are really interesting. #17 is such a beautiful statement, I’ve never heard it before. Tupac is my favorite rapper too and my son has absolutely taught me the most in life. People are fascinating, I love to learn from and be inspired by the positive ones. 

1. I met my husband, Will Smith, when I was 19 and auditioned to be his date on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. They said I was too short to play the part.

2. Four years later, Will asked me to play his girlfriend on the show, but I said no because I thought he was too tall.

3. When I turn 60 and leave the red carpet, I am going to get the tattoo arm sleeve I have always wanted.

4. I won a lip-synching contest in high school performing “Baby I’m a Star” by Prince.

5. I haven’t consumed alcohol in 13-plus years.

6. I finally love being a girl.

7. I find fame to be quite unnatural. Humans are not built for extreme adoration.

8. Jamey Johnson, Sugarland and Toby Keith are my favorite country artists.

9. I love religion and have contemplated going back to school to get a world religion degree.

10. If I had my way, I’d wear jewelry, a great pair of heels and nothing else.

11. First white guy I ever kissed: Michael Vartan…psych!

12. My favorite Latin singer/actor is Marc Anthony.

13. I have three pet red-tail boa constrictors, named Beauty, Logic and Passion.

14. My favorite metal bands are Mastodon, Crowbar and Skindred.

15. I brought home a dog and two cats from the streets of China after filming The Karate Kid.

16. I have over 40 filled journals.

17. I look at how one chooses to live her life as a piece of art.

18. This year, I’m devoted to building wells to provide clean water for villages across Africa through

19. The Smith family has already helped build several wells in Ethiopia.

20. I’ve produced a Broadway musical [Fela!]; now I want to perform in one.

21. Carol’s Daughter’s perfume My Life is my new scent.

22. My go-to outfit is a pair of black sweats and crisp white sneaks.

23. I like writing and receiving letters.

24. Our children, Trey [17], Jaden [12] and Willow [9], have taught me the most in life.

25. Tupac and Mos Def are my favorite rappers.
