Jada Pinkett-Smith celebrated her 40th birthday on Sunday (18th September 2011), just days after husband Will Smith and friend Marc Anthony put on a public display of friendship despite rumours of a feud, reports US Weekly Magazine.
Rumours began swirling last month that Jada and Will were seeking to end their marriage, with some reports suggesting the actress was having an affair with 'Hawthorne' co-star Anthony. The Hollywood couple were quick to deny the speculation and surprisingly made a joint statement confirming their relationship was "intact". Despite the rumours, Will and Marc were keen to present a united front while watching the Miami Dolphins play the New England Patriots at Miami's Sun Life Stadium last week. The pair were snapped posing for pictures with arms draped around each other. Marc recently dismissed rumours of an affair to Nightline, saying, "When something like that happens, it's laughable. We were laughing, cause we've been friends for years - Jada, Jennifer, me, him - for years! What bothers me is the effect it has on family: To Will and Jada's circle, to their friends, their family, their loved ones". It is not clear how Jada chose to celebrate her milestone birthday, although it is assumed she spent time with husband Will and children Jayden Smith and Willow Smith.
The actress recently completed voice work on the upcoming animated movie 'Madagascar 3', also starring Ben Stiller and CHRIS ROCK
