Jada Pinkett Smith Opens Up About Suicidal Thoughts

Pinkett Smith has two children with husband Will - Willow and 19-year-old Jaden - and she is also step-mother to Will's son, Trey.

Interestingly, Banfield Norris said her own education from her mother could not have been more different, and skewed on the conservative side: "I had none of that!"

In the wake of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain's suicide, Jada Pinkett Smith is talking about her own struggles and how she "considered suicide often" at some point.

'She didn't want me to fall into the hands of a man, and if he gave me pleasure, to think that was him.

'One thing I have learned in life over the years is that mental health's something that we should practice every day, not just when issues arise.

'At 15 years old it was very rough, and I brought a lot of pain out of my childhood into my adulthood that I am just now dissolving.

The actress said she was giving "herself multiple orgasms" by Willow's age, and admitting that "I actually think I went through kind of an addiction with it".

The businesswoman noted that many factors "either contribute to or deteriorate" her mental health, including what she eats, what she watches on TV, her spiritual practices, the people with whom she surrounds herself, and more.

Willow Smith once "ran away" in a panic after walking in on her parents having sex.

His statement follows a report from the New York Times, which criticized the White House for lacking a scientific advisory team. Pompeo added, President Trump is very prepared for his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong Un and is eager to achieve real progress.

Her daughter explained it was during a family vacation to Aspen, Colorado, when she got up in the middle of the night to get some juice.

Willow's mother Jada was shocked by her daughter's revelation and admitted she had "no idea" what was going on because she "never saw any signs of it".

Adrienne didn't think the sex talk was appropriate with Willow present but Jada brushed it off, saying: 'Hell yes, it's appropriate. The Girls Trip star said she'd "basically tell myself that it's OK".

"I knew the night - the night - Jaden lost his virginity", she stresses.

She added: "You get addicted 'cause you can create so much pleasure".

"That's some next level, right there", joked Willow.

Red Table Talk's latest episode is available now on Facebook Watch.

Jada was open and willing to share these intimate details in order to let her daughter know it's OK to be sexual, even though Willow revealed that her generation is definitely more open when it comes to female sexuality.

"I was like, 'What did you see?. I was like, 'Oh my god, this is so insane, what did I just see?' It wasn't like I was seeing everything, the room was dark".
