Jada Pinkett Smith has admitted to having a "sexual attraction" to women. The actress, 49, along with her daughter Willow, 20, both revealed that they have been "infatuated" with women. Speaking on their show Red Table Talk, Jada - who has been married to Will Smith since 1997 - opened up about her attraction to the same sex.
“Two times I’ve been infatuated with a woman," she recalled. Jada's admission prompted Willow to chime in, adding: “I’ve had my fair share of swooning and being like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so beautiful. She’s so talented'.
“I don’t feel like I’ve been in love with a woman just yet, but I definitely feel like it could happen because I’ve had very strong feelings for women before.” Willow has been vocal about her attraction to women in the past.
In 2019, the singer revealed she believes in polygamy, saying: “Monogamy, I feel, this is just, personally, just for me — I feel actually inhibits you from learning those skills of evolving past those feelings of insecurity.
“Just jealousy, you know what I mean." Willow added: “I would definitely want one man, one woman. I feel like I could be polyfidelotous with those two people."
“I feel like if I were to find two people of the different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don’t feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more," she added. Jada's admission comes just months after she opened up about her affair with singer August Alsina.
Will and Jada said they were amid a private separation at the time, so it wasn't viewed as 'cheating' as their marriage was effectively over when Jada hooked up with 28-year-old August. Will told Jada during their showdown on RTT: "I really felt like we could be over."
He continued: “We came together young and we were both broken in our own ways, and to be able to make mistakes without the fear of losing your family is so critical." Jada replied at the time: "One of the things that I’m deeply grateful in this whole process between you and I is that we have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love.”
Will hit back: “Cause’ I wasn’t sure I was ever going to speak to you again. The fact that I’m speaking to you again is a miracle.” Jada said near the end of their chat: "You gotta go through some s*** to get the answers. I’m just happy because I definitely believe you and I never ever, ever thought we’d make it back.”
