And after seeing this cover with her in an orange bikini showing off her rock-hard body, it’s enough to make anyone want to put in the blood, sweat and tears to look like her.
“When my husband of almost 20 years can’t take his eyes off me? That’s amazing,” she told Shape. 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.”
Although she’s only 5 feet and 108 pounds, she doesn’t feel that way. She feels no different than husband Will Smith at his height.
“It’s an internal thing. I know that I’m petite but I never think like I am, ever,” Pinkett Smith explained. “The truth is, there are times when I feel as big and tall as Will!”
She added, “often we feel in order to be strong we have to take on male attributes. I grew up on the streets of Baltimore and had to put out an energy that said, ‘You do not want to mess with me.’ But I’m okay. I feel safe now…I can focus on love, compassion, openness, and yes, vulnerability.”
