Jada Pinkett Smith: ‘Red Table Talk has helped me grow’

Jada Pinkett Smith has credited her Facebook programme Red Table Talk for helping her “personal self growth”.
The series, which premiered on Facebook Watch in May 2018, sees Jada joined by her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones as they discuss topics such as an addiction to porn or benefits of a polyamorous relationship.
While the programme has been a massive hit for the platform, it’s also had more than a few benefits for Jada, as she explained during an interview on U.K. TV show Lorraine on Tuesday (30Jul19).
“I’m in a really good place professionally and personally,” she gushed. “This programme has really helped my personal self growth as well.”
Of how the programme came about, Jada continued: “It all started when Willow was 11 and we did the original editor table for Mother’s Day. I thought, ‘wow there’s three generations of us, and we’ve been through varying things as three generations.’ I realised Willow doesn’t really know my story or her grandmother’s – so that’s really how the whole concept was birthed.”
Since working with her daughter and mother on the show, Jada has learned a lot about two of the most important members of her family. And the prospect of open communication in a family is one the screen star is very keen to promote.
“I really felt like having a show that show that depicts the kind of communication we all desire and want to have,” she smiled. “There are so many people that said, ‘Oh my goodness we’re doing the same thing in our family!’
“Having authentic conversations is what our show is about, as well as us sharing our own experiences and struggles and and how we’ve navigated through them.”
