Actress Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals Bucket List At 50: “I Really Wanna Learn How To Love”

Jada Pinkett Smith wants to learn how to love. The Red Table Talk host is known for making some divisive comments on her Facebook show. It has been the birthplace of many crazy viral moments. Still, most recently, during an episode celebrating her 50th birthday, she opened up about her bucket list, which includes better understanding of love.

Jada Pinkett Smith launched Red Table Talk on the Facebook Watch network back in 2018. Since then, it has been the place where she has really redefined her branding, letting fans in on several different components of her that have been shocking and enlightening to many. On Red Table Talk, she famously opened up about her “entanglement” to R&B singer August Alsina. In the now-infamous episode, Jada sat with her A-list Hollywood husband Will Smith and discussed how she allowed herself to get involved with the 20-something-year-old heartthrob during a break in their marriage. “I was done with you,” she told husband Will, to which he replied, “Marriages have that, though.”

Will and Jada have been married for years and were #goals for a lot of people for a long time. They share two kids and a host of viral pictures and moments that defined what love looked like for many other people. Outside of Will and August, Jada was also linked to Tupac Shakur, with whom she shared a complicated love. The childhood friends met in high school and forged an incredibly deep bond. So strong in fact that during a stint in Rikers Island, Tupac sent Jada letters and poetry. Their connection so impacted her daughter Willow that she once wrote a letter to Tupac begging him to come back and stressing how much her mother loves him.

However, even with a 20+ year relationship with husband, Will Smith, Jada still does not know if she understands what love is. To be fair, she did not stress romantic love. However, the response came after friend Arsenio Hall wished her a Happy Birthday and reminded her that her husband Will Smith did some skydiving for his 50th.
“Will jumped out of a helicopter on his 50th; what’s on your bucket list? What you gon do? Happy Birthday.”

Jada looked immediately shy, and when asked by her mother if she had on a bucket list, she responded, “I do, but it’s not physical.” Daughter Willow giggled and agreed. “Exactly! I’m right there with you.” Jada continued, “I really wanna learn how to love. I know what it isn’t. I am just on a journey of really understand what love is.” “So everything on your bucket list right now is just part of your spiritual journey and your path right now.” Fans in the comments seemed to really connect with this. One commented, “This red table talk….wow. Did I ever learn so much wisdom from you all on this episode? Thank you. And Happiest of Birthdays, dear Jada.”
