Jada Pinkett Smith is prepared to talk about her marriage in great detail. In the fall of 2023, Dey Street Books will release the host of Red Table Talk’s memoir. From the depths of suicidal depression to the heights of personal rediscovery and the celebration of real feminine power, Pinkett Smith’s book “chronicles lessons learned in the course of a painful but enthralling journey,” per a press release obtained by People.
“Without holding back, Jada discloses the unconventional details of her upbringing in Baltimore, from the child of two addicts to a promising theatre student and a violent interlude as a petty drug dealer, then a parallel rise to stardom alongside her close friend 2Pac, then falling in love with and marrying Will Smith, and finally embracing motherhood with joy.”
The 51-year-old actress of Girls Trip opens out about being “in crisis at age 40” and “recounts the agonizing choices she was forced to make to remake her life in every way,” as stated in a press release.
The driving force behind this excellent work is “two surprising love stories,” the blurb says. “one is Jada’s complex marriage to Will Smith; the other is the one she has with herself.”
Carrie Thornton, vice president and editorial director of Dey Street Books, made the following statement: “Many people have tried to categorize and define Jada Pinkett Smith. This is because of gender stereotypes and the constraints of the media landscape in which we live.”
The focus of all the rumors and half-truths is a lady who, like so many others, has struggled to find the balance between her own demands and those of the people she cares about.
For the first time, in this autobiography, Jada tells the world the truth about her life, taking her readers along on her transformation from frightened teenager to fierce female leader “, Thornton remarked. It’s a privilege to travel this road alongside her.
Jaden Smith, 24, and Willow Smith, 21, are the children of Will and Jada Smith, who wed in 1997. The Ali actor has a son, Sheree, 29, with his first wife.
Their prior difficulties as parents and lovers have been discussed openly. Will, the autobiography of the King Richard actor, was published last year and detailed a series of fights he and his wife had had.
Chris Rock’s now-famous joke about actress Jada Pinkett Smith’s melancholy and alopecia areata at the Academy Awards was inspired by her openness about these personal difficulties. Slapping Rock on stage when he compared her newly shaved head to Demi Moore’s in G.I. Jane was a huge surprise to the audience.
Pinkett Smith spoke up about the incident several months later on Red Table Talk, explaining that she had received thousands of messages from people with alopecia areata after the news of the occurrence had spread.
She hoped there was a potential for healing and forgiveness between the “two intelligent, capable men.”
