Jada Pinkett-Smith: I’ve Put on Weight — But I Like It! (PHOTO)
Jada Pinkett-Smith recently took time out of her busy schedule to give a shout-out to self-confidence.
On February 24, the 42-year-old actress headed on over to Facebook to post a photo of herself, 13-year-old daughter Willow, and famous husband Will Smith attending the UFC 170 event in Las Vegas earlier in the week. She opted to take the social media opportunity to call attention to a little extra baggage Jada claims she brought along.
“My girlfriend sent me this pic, and I could clearly see the weight I’ve gained which is about…8-10 pounds,” she wrote. “I think I will keep it. I like being a lil…fuller;) Let’s just hope it will fit in The Oscars dress.”
The mother of two signed off with a message we could all take to heart: “Here’s to loving our bodies by our own standards:).”
There’s just one little hiccup to this whole thing: We don’t see where Jada possibly could have gained weight. In the photo, she’s wearing a tight black leather ensemble that leaves little room to hide a few extra pounds so yeah, we think Jada will have no problem fitting into whatever beautiful dress she’s picked for Sunday’s Academy Awards.
As jealous as we might be that Jada looks that amazing in leather, cheers to her for feeling good at any size. As for us, we’re always behind being a little fuller. Somebody pass the chips, please.
