In May this year, Jada Pinkett-Smith, along with daughter Willow and Mom Adrianne Benfield-Jones, launched a talk show Red Table Talk on the network. In the second episode of the project, the producers asked them to talk about the biggest losses.

The biggest loss I’ve ever faced was losing myself. I lost myself for many years, as if withered, curled up and nearly died,
“Jada confessed in a conversation with her daughter and mother.

As 46-year-old Pinkett-Smith explained, raising children (Jada and Will Smith raise two common children and the actor’s son from the first marriage), work on marriage, a public lifestyle in Hollywood – all this contributed to the fact that one day the actress realized: she lost yourself.

To give up a career for the sake of raising children was a struggle … However, I would not want to change anything. I love my family. Do not misunderstand me. I just got lost,
“Jada explained.

Jada also told about the loss of her best friend – rapper Tupac Shakur, who was shot in September 1996.

Many people are trying to understand our relationship with Pak. I can say that his death was a huge loss for me. I learned a lesson and realized that life is too short. Do not let the disagreements stand between you and the people you love,
“Jada said.
