Jada pinkett Smithis practicing self love. The actress celebrated “Bald Is Beautiful Day” with a stunning selfie.
The 50-year-old Girls TripStar, who suffers from alopecia, shared a glowing Instagram photo on Tuesday, September 13 showing her in a glamorous look.
Her makeup included a gold highlight, dramatic lashes, and a deep red lipstick that complemented her buzzed hairstyle. Pinkett Smith completed the look with a sparkling champagne-colored silk top, and dangling diamond ears.
“Happy Bald is Beautiful day to all my brothers and sisters with no hair,” the Maryland native captioned the social media post, which received praise from her followers. “Flawless,” wrote one fan in the comments section. A second follower commented: “Stunning!” A third wrote: “Beyond Beautiful.”
The photo comes months after Pinkett Smith’s husband, Will Smith, made headlines for slapping Chris RockDuring the 2022 Oscars, for making a joke about Set it Off star’s shaved head. The King RichardActor ran onto the stage at the March 27, ceremony to defend his wife, and smacked Rock in both the face and the eyes. When he returned to his seat, Smith shouted at Rock, “Keep my wife’s name out your f–king mouth.”
Smith, 53 years old, won Best After Shortly After the Incident. Smith, 53 years old, resigned from Academy before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences confirmed Smith would be expelled from all Oscars events over the next 10 years.
Smith later apologized for the incident with an Instagram statement. “It’s been a minute … Over the last few months, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and personal work … You asked a lot of fair questions that I wanted to take some time to answer,” the text read ahead of the clip, which was posted via Instagram.
The Pennsylvania native shared his regrets in the long video. “I’ve spent the last three months replaying and understanding the nuances and the complexities of what happened in that moment,” he explained. “I’m not gonna try to unpack all of that right now. I can assure you that there is not a part of me that believes this was the best way for that moment. There’s no part of me that thinks that’s the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults.”
The I Am Legend star also shared that he attempted to get in contact with Rock, 57, but the comedian is “not ready to talk.”
He added: “So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk. … I’m trying not to think of myself as a piece of s–t.”
Pinkett Smith has always been open about her struggle with an autoimmune disease that causes hair fall.
“It was terrifying when it first started,” the Gotham alum recalled of her “issues” during a May 2018 episode of her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk. “I was in the shower one day and had just handfuls of hair in my hands and I was just like, ‘Oh, my God, am I going bald?’”
She explained at the time that she had been wearing a turban to cover up her hair loss, revealing that it was not an “easy” topic to discuss.
