Actress Jada Pinkett Smith is one tough cookie! The 43-year-old mother of two and wife to mega superstar Will Smith made a name for herself in the early 1990’s on TV shows like “A Different World” and movies like “Jason’s Lyric.” Since then, the actress has been in award-winning movies and her own television show but has her share of tabloid press as while. But one thing is for certain, she looks great and sets the record straight about how she holds it all together.

On Her Marriage

“Will and I are yin and yang,” she says. “He’s all sky, vast and bright and soaring, and I’m all earth. I’m here to ground him, and he’s here to help me fly.” Jada makes sure she and Will’s love life keeps a spark, even during the trying time. Besides doing her daily Kegels –“It keeps the sex hot,” says Jada–she takes time to nourish their relationship by creating outings for her and will when life gets stressful.

On Food

Jada sticks to a high protein diet, incorporating a lot of vegetables and chicken into her diet.  Her favorite breakfast is steel-cut oatmeal with sauteed kale, grilled chicken and sesame seeds.

For lunch, she usually opts for fish paired with a green salad, while her family’s favorite snack is apples and peanut butter. Although Jada does maintain a healthy diet, her guilty pleasure foods are pizza and french fries.  Her favorite pizza toppings are veggies and chicken.
