Jada Pinkett Smith has one of Hollywood's fittest bodies -- and there's a good reason why, she explains.
"I don't eat for pleasure," the svelte actress tells Essence.
Pinkett Smith, 40, recalls that she was taught not to give into emotional eating. "[I] had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook. She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don't eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that's healthy."
Although the Madgascar 3 actress admits she occasionally eats pizza and French fries, they are in no way regular staples of her diet.
"I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don't fall flat on my face."
But Pinkett Smith revealed more than her diet secrets in the Q&A. She also gave her fans a sneak peek at a future project. Jada and husband Will Smith are apparently planning to star in a movie together soon.
"Will is going to [shoot a film] with the boys probably, and he and I are gonna do one," she tells Essence. "He can't wait. He was like, 'You and me, next.' I was like... 'Let's do it!"
Perhaps they should consider a remake of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
