Jada Pinkett-Smith Opens Up About Her Former “Unhealthy Relationship” With Porn

On the latest episode of Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett-Smith reveals she had an unhealthy relationship with porn.

Pinkett-Smith, her mother AdrienneBanfieldJones and her daughter Willow Smith, sat down for another episode to discuss the often stigmatized act of watching pornography. Before even sitting down, the ladies briefly opened up about their feelings and experiences with adult-rated media. Willow let it be known that she’s into” the expensive looking stuff … if it’s artsy!” as her grandmother replied saying, “I guess I’m not looking at the right stuff.”

Pinkett-Smith then said, “If I was still on my porn game, I would be able to show you some good porn,” adding, “Back in the day, I had a little porn addiction. But I wasn’t in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not.” Later on in the episode, Pinkett-Smith said she watched porn heavily at a time when she was trying to be abstinent, calling her moment with the content an “unhealthy relationship to porn.” “It was filling an emptiness, at least you think it is, but it’s actually not, said Pinkett-Smith.

The actress also shared a moment when she saw “hardcore” porn while looking for Willow’s Tumblr page. “I could not believe that,” said Jada, as Willow tried to claim the material they saw was “artistic.” Jada replied, “Not what I saw, wasn’t nothin’ artistic about that! I saw some hardcore stuff! I remember, graphically. I was like, ‘Willow!’ She was like, ‘Don’t even pay attention to it; we’re getting to my page.’ I was profoundly disturbed!” Willow, 18, added that she saw porn for the first time when she was 11. “All my girlfriends were like, ‘You should watch,'” she recalled. “I was like, ‘I’m not really sure.”

Eventually, the hosts invited a couple to the table to discuss their marital issues that included the husband’s previous addiction to porn. “Red Table Talk” is posted on Mondays at 9 am PT on Facebook Watch.
