What Jada Pinkett Smith Gave up for Her Kids


will smithHere’s where I’ll admit to being judgmental sometimes: I figure celebrities are able to “have it all” while the rest of us have to make a lot more sacrifices for our families.

With their fame and the money that comes with it, it’s got to be so easy to be a celeb parent, right? But, Jada Pinkett Smith reveals that it isn’t as simple as that.

Jada Pinkett Smith puts her kids ahead of herself: “I had to make choices. Believe me, I would still be on the road with my band, Wicked Wisdom, and making as many movies as I can a year, and doing all sorts of other things if I didn’t have the responsibility of a family. But I have children with their own talents and dreams, and I know I have to be standing next to them for that journey.”

She even gave up her rockstar dreams to take care of her kids: ‘It was excruciating, completely excruciating. When Jaden was auditioning for The Pursuit of Happyness, my band had just gotten an offer to open for Guns N’ Roses in Europe. For me, that was unbelievable. But the choice was: I could be a rock star, or I could be on the set with my son to make sure he was healthy and happy. We all know how that story ended!”

What a fabulous Hollywood mama!
