Jada Pinkett Smith Covers Essence

After an almost two year hiatus, actress Jada Pinkett Smith is once again gracing the cover of Essence Magazine.

The 40-year old former “Hawthorne” star openly confronts the latest round of rumors that have her and husband Will Smith divorcing for the umpteenth time, as well as the critics who claim she is allowing her daughter Willow Smith to grow up too quickly.

Peep the excerpts below and to read the full article, you can pick up Essence on your newsstands now.

Jada on her supposed impending divorce from Will: “It seems like that happens at least once a year, or at least once every two years – it’s rumored that we’re getting a divorce. But no, we’re not getting a divorce. Where am I going to go? That’s my boo. It’s like he’s another part of me.”

Jada on how she and Will strive to make their marriage work: Building on a relationship is not about keeping a form. Relationships are not factory made but are custom fit. The focus should be on creating a way to share a life together that is specifically catered to what the couple see’s as joyful, creative and erotic. When I speak about eroticism its not about sex but about deep feeling. Building a relationship is… building a miracle.

Jada on why she recently took up the cause of human trafficking: “When something speaks to you as brightly and as strongly as this particular issue speaks to me, you just put every resource that you have to move things forward. That’s what we do, we move fast. It’s the entertainment business. You have to move like a rocket. We’re talking about people’s lives.”

Jada on seeking advice from Angelina Jolie: “I called Angelina Jolie and said, ‘Ange, I need you, girl. Did you know we have slaves in this country?’ She said, ‘Jada, I’ve been working on this for years – are you kidding me?’ So I sat on the phone with Angelina and of course it was like going to college. She schooled me.”

Jada on those who criticize the way she and Will are raising their children, especially daughter Willow: Will and I have raised our children to be loving and respectful human beings. We encourage them to think for themselves and we are there to guide them through life’s hurdles. We have raised three wonderful children together and have had no major problems whatsoever. How many people criticizing us can say the same?
