Jada Pinkett Smith Declined Met Ball Invitation For Kids


Jada Pinkett-Smith

The Matrix Reloaded star was among the lucky few to receive personal invitations to the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art bash from Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who presides over the guest list, but she chose to skip the party in New York so her teenage kids, actors/musicians Willow and Jaden, could let loose without mum watching over them.

"This was the first year I actually got invited by Anna," Jada explained on U.S. breakfast show Today. "You know, we get invited by different (fashion) houses all the time, but... this would have been the year I would have gone 'cause Anna invited us!

"But what I realised was that being in the same room with the kids during an event like that makes it a completely different event for them, and that's really their sandbox, so I had to fall back."

Jada Pinkett Smith Pays Tribute To Afeni Shakur


Jada Pinkett-Smith Tupac Shakur

The actress was close friends with the rapper and his family for years after they were classmates at Baltimore School for the Arts, and she took to Facebook on Tuesday (03May16) to share her memories of Afeni and Tupac's family after hearing about Afeni's death.

"My first thought was of Sekyiwa (Tupac's half-sister) and the entire clan that loved Afeni," she wrote. "Then I remembered that I was in NY to attend a Mother's Day event named after a song written about Afeni, Dear Mama. My heart tightened and then all kinds of memories flooded in. I quickly remembered how calm Afeni was especially during any crisis. She always had a way of making me believe all would be well."

She recalls her best memory of Afeni was when they had an intimate chat following Tupac's death in 1996, aged 25, and Jada could see where her friend had got his "passion" and "depth of thinking".

Jada Pinkett-Smith Will Smith Jaden Smith

The 44-year-old actress is mother to 17-year-old Jaden and 15-year-old Willow with husband Will Smith, as well as being stepmother to the actor's 23-year-old son Trey.

But as she spoke at the VH1 Dear Mama event in New York on Tuesday night (03May16), Jada admitted her own upbringing had made her believe she would never be lucky enough to be part of a unit like she is now.

"I never thought about being married or having a family. I didn't know anything about that because I came from a single mom so I always though I'd be a single mom and have a career," Jada said. "But then I found this beautiful man, Will. I got married to him and I got my bonus son Trey and then I got Jaden and I got Willow and I was able to create, for myself, something I never had – which means family."

Will Smith: 'My Suicide Squad Look Rocks My Wife's World'


Will Smith Jada Pinkett-Smith

The actor stars as Deadshot, a highly skilled assassin, in the new comic book movie, which sees a team of incarcerated supervillains team up to undertake a series of dangerous missions in exchange for their freedom.

For the role, Will modelled his appearance on imprisoned music mogul Suge Knight, growing an unkempt beard and shaving his head, a look which apparently went down very well with his spouse.

“She thought it was pretty hot,” the star tells Entertainment Tonight. “I went with the Suge Knight look. I was using my model. I went with the rough, rugged and raw. She appreciated that.”

Willow Smith: 'Fashion Doesn't Define Me'


Willow Smith Will Smith Jada Pinkett-Smith

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's daughter is known for her eclectic style and was recently named an ambassador for high fashion brand Chanel. However, despite her affinity for high-end labels, the 15-year-old feels it is more important to embrace your true self.

"I have some cool shoes on, and I wear crazy eyeliner, but it's really all about emulating the colors you feel inside," she tells Teen Vogue. "A lot of clothes are cute, but after you buy the Yeezy shoes, after you get your hair done with a weave, you're still the same person. I feel like more and more kids are starting to realise this."

Willow reveals she went through a bit of an identity crisis in 2011 and had to step back to figure out who she was.

David Harewood Notes Demand For Diversity Onscreen


David Harewood Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences Jada Pinkett-Smith

Stars such as Will and Jada Pinkett Smith opted to boycott the Academy Awards last month (Feb16) following the lack of black nominees. Since then, there have been significant attempts to increase diversity in Hollywood, and Supergirl actor David has noticed a change.

"Since the Oscars there has been a real boom in scripts and parts for black actors and black actresses which is fantastic," David said during an interview on This Morning on Tuesday (22Mar16). "There are some great parts coming through for black actresses, and we really do need to catch up here, because studio heads seem to be getting the message that there's not only an audience out there but there is also a desire to see people of colour in essential roles and authoritative roles - because they're great actors and because there's a demand for it. There's a real demand to see diversity on screen."

David, 50, has enjoyed roles on the small screen in series such as Homeland and the recent The Night Manager, as well as movies including The Merchant of Venice and Blood Diamond. He splits his time between the U.S. and his native England, but admits the British acting world still has a long way to go in terms of its diversity inclusion.
