Jada Pinkett Smith Nude Photo Shoot For Essence Magazine

A Healthy Bite: Jada Pinkett Smith

"When I walked out there and disrobed, I felt like a queen. I felt like the world was mine. Like there was this power just emanating from my person. Like there was nothing I couldn't do."

— Jada Pinkett Smith on posing nude for Essence magazine's July cover. The actress said that choosing to bare it all was not about vanity but was her way of teaching younger women (especially her daughter) that our bodies should be celebrated. Jada's hope was to send a message of "freedom and self-acceptance" through her choice to bare it all.

Do you have a healthy body image like Jada?

I'm starting to appreciate my body. I'm 47 and at 136lbs now; went up to 160 about 2 years ago and working out (cardio & weights) to get rid of the weight. I didn't appreciate my body when I was growing up because I was so skinny I was teased about being a "stick figure", "bean pole". I'm trying to get to 130; I might go to a nude beach if I make it! Whoo hooo!

In response to anonymous 4, I'd say her life is pretty busy. I was in the best shape when my life was hectic (full time school and full time job). Sometimes having too much downtime can cause people to be complacent with their fitness. But either way, you have to make the time. By the way, the YMCA has personal trainers. It's not exclusive to celebrities.

Whaaaaat? Her arms look NOTHING like Madonna's. Jada looks fantastic. I like her attitude and her body image. I think my body image is pretty good most of the time, but it would take a lot of guts to pose nude on a magazine cover!
