Jada Pinkett Smith was in Atlanta recently to promote her new movie, Girls Trip, co-starring Regina Hall and Queen Latifah. She is speaking out after enduring insults from bloggers who say she looks older than her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, 63.

Recent photos of her mother's toned, washboard stomach -- and the envy from social media users -- prompted the 45-year-old actress to rethink her gym routine.

"I have good genes, don't I?" she told Entertainment Tonight, after sharing images of her own impressive figure in movies like Magic Mike XXL and on magazine covers.

"Yeah, she rocks one better than me. When your own mother can put you to shame, I’m like, I don’t (know) if I gotta get back in the gym. I don't know what I gotta do. I just told her, I said, 'All that right there, just make sure you passing all those good genes down here'."

Discussing her body in a previous interview with Shape magazine, the mother-of-two explained how her marriage and mental wellbeing motivated her to stay fit for husband Will Smith, 48.

“When my husband of almost 20 years can’t take his eyes off me? That’s amazing,” she said. “But the number one reason I go to the gym is because it keeps me sane; I can deal with whatever’s coming at me."

  • Lisa daniels

    Now if she can stop allegedly messing with her face, she will be great

  • Soda

    I was about to say the same thing. Washboard implies ripples, as in muscles.

  • therealashland

    Jada's mom is a MILF. No disrespect to Jada but ... her mom could get it! yes IT!

  • Isignedup4this

    As a certified personal trainer... yes it is. But what do u think it is? I'm just curious about your perception...

  • Kanyade


  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I though it was from her strict diet & working out,

  • Lisa daniels

    I don't know but the word on curb, she been under the knife.

  • Elle

    Jada is just too cute for her own good! I love that white outfit on her!!

  • Soda

    What's your definition, flat like a board?

  • Monique B

    Her mother is GORGEOUS!!

  • darealwifey

    Jada looks older than her mom because of the plastic surgery, not because of her body. Her mother is just stunning. Jada didn't need plastic surgery done. I wish she would speak out against that to discourage other young women from messing with their natural beauty.

  • hotntot95

    Goals!..this family is a little unusual sometimes.. but they are beautiful.??

  • Bdot

    She does look older than her mother because she destroyed her face trying to be the black Sarah Jessica Parker. Jada has serious issues with trying too hard to be famous - it's been manifested in her children. Should've left her face alone, lookin like a metallic android - yuck. Moms is a dime piece. Next topic.

  • ThottyPippen

    I don't understand why celeb women inflate their It doesn't make them look younger...just bloated in the face.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I LOVE Jada!

  • stav

    This is quite a late response , I remember commenting on this post at least three months ago!

  • darealwifey

    That and her cannot mess with your eyes. They are truly the essence of what makes you YOU.

  • klwbaby

    They are both beautiful women....I hope everyone has a good day!!!??

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I t is suppose to five them back their youthful, full face. I noticed that as I get older my face seems to become "longer".

  • n1kk1a


  • ThottyPippen

    I guess it's suppose to lift..but most of the women you can seriously tell that their cheeks were messed with (ex. Jennifer Aniston)

  • Ajavee

    Lovely ladies. Jada's mom looks stunning! She wears 63 very well.

  • Ajavee

    The pic on the left looks softer more feminine.

  • Ajavee

    Yes she is!

  • Ms Thang

    No washboard abs for me for a while. Krispy kreme is $.80 a dozen today. I can't get up there fast enough.

  • Soda
  • Nophace

    buy 1 at regular price first THEN the 2nd one is $0.80

  • Soda

    It wasn't exactly this one, it was a Mother's Day post!

  • Dr.Rue

    Soooo ummm Jada's mom had her at 15??? got damn

  • ?Royalty?

    Now Damn! You just had to put that out there right? Lmaoooo I know where I'm going after work.

  • Mrs Mary

    Her mother's belly looks unnatural...her mothers face is gorgeous and that is the only think Jada needs to be concerned about is keeping that youthful face. Jadas body and belly is nice and feminine no need to feel ashamed by your mothers body buiilding looking belly.

  • Renee26

    Jada and her mother both look amazing...that was an unflattering picture of her mothers mid section but in others she looks great.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I'd be more about my kids getting wrapped up in that Scientology BS...but that's just me.

  • Renee26
  • Renee26

    Those may actually be Jada's natural cheeks though...her mom also has them

  • Renee26

    I agree...she's just leaner

  • Mbailey

    HER mama needs to pull up her pants. I can't imagine that much air on my privates in public.


    Those cheek implants are the worst.

  • SumthinSweeter


  • Junkanoo

    Letting dem kids raise themselves tops the list in my opinion both running round the place like free range chicken . You do look older than your mom face facts

  • Wile E. Coli


  • Junkanoo

    Never really liked Jada and nothings changed


    I thought women were supposed to be natural and soft looking, not have a hard body like a dude! Oh well I guess somebody likes it, men that likes other men lol, just kidding, ok not really! I mean its one thing to be healthy and fit but just don't over do it. But her mother does have a pretty face and ok I'm not gone be a hater, her body is tight work, yeap that's all I got, ok I'm done talking, BYE!

  • ThottyPippen

    There's clear pictures of Jada from 2000s to now you don't go from chiseled facial features to that...that's work of surgery.

  • Miami8981

    All I see is a mama pouch and daughter pouch. I don't see no flat washboards abs on either one of them. But if they say so it must be true or at least that's what the voice inside their heads keep telling them.

    Okay, Imma set up the scene because it's Friday.

    Mama voice inside her head is named Vera Dahlink. And daughter voice inside her head is Ms. Wong Don't You Steal No Mo Wigs Out My Store Lee. So they're walking down the street both with crop tops on that neither one of them should have on but hey, this is the scene. So then Vera Dahlink starts talking out the side of mama pouch's neck.

    "I am so fine and so fierce with my washboard abs. I just can't stand how good I look".

    And then Ms. Wong Don't You Steal No Mo Wigs Out My Store Lee starts talking out the side of daughter pouch's neck in her Chinese dialect.

    "You know damned well those ain't no washboard abs. I paid hella good money for your tummy tuck and mine. Too bad that shit didn't work".

    Vera Dahlink then says, this bish ain't loyal. She can't even keep our damned secrets. Then the scene ends when Ms. Wong Don't You Steal No Mo Wigs Out My Store Lee says "mama, sit your five-dollar ass down before I make change."

    I know it's corny as hell but it's Friday y'all! LMFAO

  • Rayne

    Nawl...ion know what kinda stomach that is. But I used to help my mamma wash clothes on a wash board in the tub before we could afford a washing machine in the 80's . It didn't look like that tho ?

  • Rayne

    Have me catching the coochie flu lmao ?

  • 4RGSpot


  • 4RGSpot

    They both are pretty and look nice, but if I had to choose between both their stomachs, I'll opt to keep my gut!?

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Again, the worst picture anyone could find. Jadas mother has a flat stomach this was just a bad photo. And as for Will not taking his eyes off Jada? I'll just say...I don't believe it.

  • Rayne


  • BeUtFullSoul

    Jad's muva is Gorgeous!

  • Miami8981

    When are Will and Jada going to do a Lemonade/4:44 collabo about their fake marriage? Anybody know?

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Jada is STUNNING and so is her mom! #BlackExcellence

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Damn she's 63? She looks amazing!

  • Lisa daniels


  • Lisa daniels

    On the right that Zoe Saldana

  • Psychic Lulu

    Honestly, they have a real relationship. He does his thing and she does hers. Marriage is a business arrangement. They just so happen to love each other, regardless. Sorry.

  • Psychic Lulu

    absolutely beautiful.. i was dreading not being all big and fine but I'm continuously inspired by #teamslim

  • parisjok

    that stomach is so ugly

  • Quitedeliteful

    Jada looks good and her mama looks good. It's obvious that they exercise but it's so nice when you can get a nip and tuck or an implant to help you stay fierce. Must be nice...

  • IamAllnatural

    Jada & her mom look beautiful. Jada doesn't need that heavy makeup because it makes her look older.

  • Dr.Rue

    Jada's mom is 63, Jada is 48 right?

  • Tena

    Mama is a bad chick! Great genes to have.

  • Samantha G.

    What the hell Jada and her mother doing to get their bodies man?? Write a damn book already ?????. I'm waiting

  • Desiree Edwards

    too much facial fillers and surgery

  • abby500

    Ok...her mother has a nice body and I know her tummy looks better than that shot. But, as a menopausal chick myself, her mom has menopausal fat on her tummy, probably sitting on muscle like I do (I'm a gym rat). Probably only lipo will remove it. But, she maintains it well, that's just a poor angle.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Jada just did too much to stay youthful looking, and seeing her mom's face, Jada probably didn't need to take the route she did. It made her look older. Even with her enhanced face or redone, Jada looks beautiful! Being married to Will who still has his boyish good looks!

    Working in Hollywood, I can only imagine the pressure and state of mind not to knife up! Vanessa Williams is a pro at it, celebrities should see a shrink first, so they won't be working from a distorted view of themselves!

  • dontgetblocked

    Her mother is only 18 years older than her. They've probably had a life long competiton.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    I regret that ice cream sammich I just ate after looking at her abs, ??

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I would be so scared to go under the knife just to stay hollywood. What be wrong with these people?

  • leapyearpisces

    Ummmmm....hmmmmm. not to be a negative Nancy, but ummmm her mom has a defined beer gut, there Is a pooch, she just works out to keep the pooch / muscle balanced, and I AIN'T EVEN MAD AT MAMA PINKETT, I would give up a GOOD 3 months salary for that pooch/muscle action. I would be out here walking around looking like EJ Johnson with CROP TOPS to my ears, and knee high hooked boots to my neck. Get it mama Pinkett!!!

  • Miami8981

    My bad. I forgot about their open marriage. She dates women and he dates men.

  • brooklyn23

    That mention of Ej made me laugh
    I got a quick visual of of him and his boots and shades
    Look at that, I stuttered

  • Miami8981

    If Jada is 50 how is her mama 63? She would have had to had her when she was 13 years old.

  • SandraRose

    I know you do not see "50" in my write up.

  • leapyearpisces

    When will they get it? Those cheek implants are a friend to no one. Especially if you are not a "clean" eater. If you are not a clean eater, them cheekbones will age you quick! I'm 41 and still get carded, and I drink like a fish. I have high rounded cheekbones so I look younger than my age. I take my cue from the Asian women who I have made friends with. They are are against plastic surgery on the FACE, they contour their faces to look more rounder, not chiseled (the chiseled face is only sexy on men), and they follow A STRINGENT face care routine (my lazy ass ain't picked that habit up yet, LOL.

  • Jussjess25

    Jada and her mom are stunningly gorgeous.. jada and will look beautiful together, their Honestly a perfect looking couple. But.. somehow their kids are not cute at all.. ewww them kids ugly . ?

  • Guest©

    *Gilf, you're welcome?

  • iAmsterdam

    I would never willingly go under the knife either. I recently had surgery because of health reasons. With the grace of God, never again!

  • Chicagowise

    Her mother's midsection looks rather broad and masculine. When was the last time a celebrity discussed how intelligent their parents are?

  • Chicagowise

    Will has a wonderful @$$ but he has a face like an old man with no teeth and beer mug handle ears.

  • Tony

    Jada doesn't look as old as mom, but her mom does look as young as her... #foodforthought

  • Keesh5000

    Love the way you put these words together...YAAASSSSS

  • Ladyvil

    I see an 'apollo's bt't' an this is a woman....weird, IJS!!

  • Ladyvil

    It looks like a dude's stomach....women don't have stomach muscles that low

  • Ladyvil


  • Chicagowise

    I'm glad I'm not the only person who noticed that.

  • Lisa jones

    Her mom is everything! Jada follow her aging routine.

  • MS.BEE


  • Mrs. ??????????

    That torso looks likes very masculine, not like it would belong to a woman.

  • nikkijamaica

    we don't normally see the stomach muscles of an over-60 year old so that has to be factored in..

  • cheechee1x1

    Jada and her mom are aging quiet well for the money spent on plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Jada's mom's lower torso looks get on a man.

  • mzwhang90210
  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Imo, Jada's mom looks like she's not wearing undies and it's not cute (at any age) or hygienic. Cudos to her for her washboard abs though.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Kinda reminds me of Stevie J's.

  • SDot

    Now that's all natural!

  • SDot


  • Jussjess25

    Yes they do.. Maybe its the way they dress or sometin im not sure?
