Jada Pinkett Smith Opened Up About Porn Addiction To Daughter Willow

Jada Pinkett Smith revealed she once had an "unhealthy relationship" with pornography.

The topic was discussed during the actor's 'Red Table Talk' Facebook series co-hosted by Jada's mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and daughter Willow Smith.

The porn chat between the three generations of women made for a few uncomfortable moments but was ultimately an honest and open discussion about why people seek pornography, and how different forms can be either harmful or helpful.

Willow started the conversation as the three family members got their makeup done, admitting that she was first exposed to pornography via Tumblr at just 11 years old.

“All my girlfriends were like, ‘Oh, you should [watch],'” the 18-year-old said.

Jada nodded, remembering the first time she spotted her pre-teen's laptop screen.

“She was very matter of fact, she said, ‘I’m going to my Tumblr page but as we’re going to the Tumblr page you’re going to see a lot of stuff. This has nothing to do with me'," Jada said.

"So she’s just scrolling, scrolling. And when I tell you I saw some of the most hardcore pornography on Tumblr…” the mother added.

Although Willow tried to protest the nature of said porn, Jada pointed out that it was "hardcore for you to be seeing that freakin'... at 11 years old".

Jada continued on to say that she was "profoundly disturbed" that her daughter -- and other kids -- were exposed to pornography at such a young age.

But she also revealed that, prior to her marriage to Will Smith, she "had a little porn addiction".

She later clarified that it was more of an "unhealthy relationship" to pornography, during a time when she was trying to practise abstinence.

"It was actually like filling an emptiness, at least you think it is," Jada explained. "But it's actually not."
