Jada Pinkett Smith tweets bikini photo “To my 40 and over crew!”

The last time we heard from Jada Pinkett Smith, 40, she was claiming that she didn’t eat for pleasure. Jada said that when she was growing up her grandmother was an awful cook and taught her “that you donโ€™t eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything thatโ€™s healthy.” Judging from how fit she is, it looks like that philosophy has served Jada well. Jada tweeted the above bikini photo along with a message to her “forty and over crew” about getting better with age. Why couldn’t she have just gone the “loving life” route and let the bikini photo speak for itself? Is Jada turning into LeAnn Rimes and dishing out faux self help advice with her bikini pics now?

Jada Pinkett Smith gave her Twitter followers a treat on Saturday: the actress posted a sexy photo of herself emerging from the ocean, showing off her impressively toned, Bond Girl-esque physique.

But Pinkett Smith, 40, wasn’t just displaying her own hard work โ€“ she had an inspirational message for other women her age to accompany the picture.

“To my Forty and over crew!” she Tweeted. “Don’t believe the hypeโ€ฆwe DO get better with age!”

[From People]

So it’s empowering to other women to tweet bikini photos of yourself? It’s not just a narcissistic thing? Good to know. Demi Moore should have used this angle ages ago. Jada looks amazing, she just seems unoriginal, especially in HWood. Plus, if she really believes that we get better with age, why doesn’t she stop with the fillers, cheek implants or whatever she’s getting done at the dermatologist? Or why doesn’t she own up to it since the damage is already done? Don’t tell me her face is all natural. At least she doesn’t have a fake rack, I’ll give her that. She does look hot and clearly works hard for it.

Now that I’m thinking of Demi, I’m reminded that she was tweeting bikini pics right before her breakup with Ashton Kutcher. Are Jada and Will about to make an announcement, or are they hanging in there?

    no thanks. there is nothing soft and feminine about her body. all gristle.

  2. MrsBPitt says:

    She is soooooo reminding me of Demi Moore…Those wierd golf ball cheeks look awful…but I would kill for her body! I would kill for Demi’s body too! Unfortunately, a killer body does not always equal happiness, even in superficial Hollywood!

    • Aussie girl says:

      She has a fantastic body but the face is looking very toxed!

    • beyonce's bump says:

      I would kill for her body too! I had no idea that she in no particular word eats the bare essentials to maintain her health and give her energy. I just thought she was one of those naturally skinny types who can eat a ton and still remain skinny.

      I am too much of a food addict to ever just eat food for nourishment. Food makes me happy ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Rhea says:

        Same with me. I get really bitchy when I’m hungry and there’s no “real” food within reach! ๐Ÿ˜€ A good food, a good company to share with, and I’m as happy as I can be.

      • Bubbaang says:

        I love food too!

  3. lisa2 says:

    I don’t understand it. I think she looks good, but I will say that most women in Hollywood look good because it is a part of their jobs to.

    I just think that women that are self assured and confident are not tweeting pics of themselves to say look at my hot bod. I don’t think it is a sign of empowerment. I think it is a sign to the men in their lives or the fact that they need some kind of validation they are not getting. I could name quite a few very beautiful and successful women that are not doing this. They don’t have to to get attention.

    something is missing for her and tweeting bikini pics is not going to change that.

    Sidenote. Does anyone recall when Demi and Ashton were working on Female Trafficking (sp?) and then they broke up and that “all important” campaign just ended. I don’t recall seeing or hearing either of them talking about it at all. Well I did see that Jada/Will seem to have picked up the cause. That is what makes me mad with some celebrities. When you are committed to something why not follow through. What became of that program and the women they claimed to care about.

    rant over.

    • someone says:

      this may be one of the smartest comments i’ve read on this website. and that’s saying a lot considering a lot of people here make very valid/insightful points. i especially agree with the comment you made about seeking validation from others. it is also so annoying when women talk about how they’re so jealous of celebrity bodies and they’re so lucky to look so good…i honestly feel people forget that this is their JOB. that’s like being impressed with a doctor when they diagnose your ailment correctly.they have to do it, because that’s what their job entails.

    • Viv says:

      Totally. And she is like Demi tweeting those bikini pics. Telling their men how they are showing the world they’re hot, even if the men don’t seem to be bothered. It’s usually a bit of a desperate move. Very sad

      • Becky1 says:

        I agree! I’m almost 40 and think it’s pathetic that some women in my age group feel the need to tweet/post bikini pics of themselves. Shouldn’t you be over that kind of stuff by now? It seems attention seeking, desperate and insecure. I’m in pretty good shape and I have friends that are in good shape as well and none of us would ever tweet/post bikini pics.

  4. cupidityrox! says:

    She looks great

  5. smith says:

    I’ve met several people over the years who eat only for nourishment. As a confirmed foodie, this makes me sad.

    Food is such a sensory pleasure, and sharing a fabulous meal with someone you love can be the most wonderful experience. Sometimes when I have something delicious in my mouth, I can’t fully appreciate it until I give my husband a bite and we can enjoy together.

    Don’t get me wrong, we’re not creating the fridge scene from “9 1/2 Weeks” every night, food certainly isn’t all there is to life, but at its very core it enhances life and love AND pleasure. Or at least it does for me. And maybe there is a sexual component because when I hear someone doesn’t enjoy or share food with others, I feel like they’re also going to be bad in bed. Cold and selfish. And for all her yapping about her great sex life, I feel this way about Jada. Everything about her seems forced.

    Okay I’m off to the gym to work off last nights pleasure …

  6. Kate says:

    if you don’t like what she’s tweeting, don’t follow her. It’s a free country, she can say/do what she wants, it’s not hurting anyone… I don’t get why we are supposed to judge this?

    • Kola says:

      I agree!Jada looks FIERCE!Go ahead Jada with your bad self!

    • mewmow says:

      Ummmm, Kate cuz you’re on a gossip sight. LOL I always find it funny when people post comments like yours. Same as you said about if you don’t like what she’s tweeting, don’t follow her. Back at ya, if you don’t like the story, don’t look at it. Pretty simple. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Kat says:

        Lol, mewmow. I totally agree with you…my favorite comments are things like, “Why does anyone care about this” or “This is none of anyone’s business.”

  7. Am I the only one that thinks she looks like a piece of gristle. Have a cupcake and chill out lady!

  8. DanaG says:

    Hot body shame about the face. The work she has had done it has ruined any form of softness or naturalness. Jada better not start belting out Natural Woman anytime soon cause she is so far from it. If I had her life and didn’t have to go to work everyday, look after my house, husband and children I’m sure I could spend the hours at the gym she does and look that hot too. So it’s not really an achievement it’s her life and Jada has never been big far from it. Needs to learn food is to be enjoyed but then like lot’s of Hollywood folk it’s probably b.s.

    • Autumnleaves says:

      Agree DanaG.Jada has always been skinny, but she definitely benefits from personal training, nutritionist, nanny, and money to maintain her figure. She would have more credibility as Celebitchy rightly pointed out, if she didn’t have fillers, cheek implants, etc.

  9. Meg says:

    exhausted mothers buying their sick kid medicine in the middle of the night don’t need to see bikini pictures on the cover of a mag in line at walmart of mom’s in their 40s bragging about how great they look. we’d all look great if we had nannies and personal chefs & trainers to whip us into shape. I think doing something like this puts mothers down-the message once again is ‘you’ll never be enough’

    • Shannon1972 says:

      Thank you. +1
      When my kids were toddlers, I was too tired to eat. I looked like hell. Jada looks good, and I am giving her the benefit of the doubt that she intended to be inspiring and supportive. But she has no idea what real life for most of us is like. Forget the body…I would kill for a vacation!

      • twoblues says:

        I’m imagining my fat, flabby body in her location right now. Without the photographer to document it!

      • lena80 says:

        A healthy body type can be achieved by everyone if they decide to eat right and drink water instead of everything else lol, the vacation on the other hand is something everyone cant do ..cant remember my last one!

      • Shannon1972 says:

        Sending you both some virtual sunshine, sand and margaritas! Here’s a toast to us! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Sorella says:

    Omg her face is just so harsh..ruins the effect of her good bikini bod..she can’t be that confident deep inside to have so messed up her face. I shudder to think how 50 will look on her face when 40 looks scary.

  11. Cam S says:

    She’s not that big a deal for over 40 to me. Before my Mom passes away at 47, her bikini body was way hotter,and my Mom ate for pleasure EVERY DAY.

    Where is this woman’s hips? What’s happening to women’s waist and hips lately? Seems like everyone is just straight up and down with no curve. Not that there is anything wrong with it- just an observation

    • Happy21 says:

      OMFG! Thank YOU!!!

      I have been saying this for 2 years! Women over 40 (not even celebrities) who lose weight or “get in shape” always seem to look like 15 year old boys afterwards. I find it sickening. Its like they feel like they need to lose EVERYTHING to look young or something.

      I am in my 30’s and am built without a waist or hips but I would LOVE to have them. I’m not thin yet I have skinny legs, no ass, a belly and boobs. If I decided that I wanted to lose 30 pounds I would look terrible (much like a 15 year old boy). I don’t know what is happening but its happening everywhere, not just where you are, not just where I am and not just Hollyweird.

      • Marie says:

        Agreed. I was just saying this to my husband last night. Im 44 and no longer want the ‘cut’ super muscular lean look I worked for in my (dumb) twenties. Now and going forward I want to be HEALTHY and feel comfortable and relaxed in my own skin. To look as good as I can but NOT worry about every 5 lbs or competing with those younger… I’d rather be a good role model. I still want to look toned but softer and more feminine. Just my 2 cents.

  12. georgiagrl says:

    Tired of celebrities who tweet plastic surgery altered photos of themselves, who think they should be envied. If it works for them , fine, but don’t hold yourself up as ideal or super-human, cause your not. I’m going to the gym now and will see people who defy age and have 20 years on Jada.
    Not impressed!

  13. Aubra says:

    She is fit, but I couldn’t be shaped like that w/o breasts

  14. Blue says:

    Why do I feel like she should over 40? I’m not impressed by her body, I’m sure she worked hard for it but her 6 pack scares me.

  15. Micki says:

    Self-confident woman in her 40s should be over promoting herself with such pictures.Seems like she doesn’t have anything else to offer and is reduced to a body.Bodies are exchangeable.

  16. Chi Chi says:

    I watched her on Hawthorne last night, the one where she shags Marc ANthony and I was truly grossed out by how skinny they both are! skinny in a bad way, not sexy at all!

  17. Tanya says:

    I hate to be a Debbie Downer Jada, but it changes dramatically once, you hit 45-47. Entering that age being fit, however, makes the transition easier…just don’t think the 40s is effortless, once the hormones shift even more, even with hormone creams and the like, all the kick ass workouts in the world can’t stop the fun. It is doable to stay fit and lean as the clock marches on, but the ease of it definitely changes.

  18. libby says:

    oh Jada!!! your face! those cheeks! why???? sorry, body is too hard and straight up and down. the sum of it all is unappealing. she has great skin color which helps her but she needs to scale back her daily workouts from two to just one.

  19. janie says:

    She looks so much healthier than I expected!

  20. floretta50 says:

    Jada Smith used to be naturally beautiful, but now it seems as if she has done something to her face. Money and idle time. I will trot-on-down to the neighborhood plastic surgeon and do something foolish today. Now just look at what she has done!

  21. RHONYC says:


    desperaaate. ๐Ÿ™

  22. Jessica says:

    Someone remove the hair from her face in that one picture!! UGH!! I cant stand that!

  23. Stubbylove says:

    Narcissistic – that is all.

  24. SolitaryAngel says:

    That is one HARD-looking *woman*.

  25. TxGal says:

    She is too rough looking and not an attractive woman/man LOL.

  26. bea says:

    The red shorts “onesie” – yuck

  27. Grace says:

    Jada no. Just no. As much as I hate to say this because the woman is nuts but, Halle OWNS Jada in this particluar department. Have a seat Jada.
    If she would just come out of the closet, quit trying to be her daughter, and have a few sandwiches she might not look like beef jerky in stick form.

    • Minty says:

      I agree. Halle is 5 years her senior and looks much much better. I’m sure Halle has to work out, too, and watch what she eats to maintain her lovely figure. What I don’t get is why women like Jada overexercise so much that they lose the body fat necessary to have feminine contours. They pack on too much muscle and their bodies look masculinized. It’s great to be toned, but looking like a drag queen should not be the goal.

      Jada often talks about her “wonderful” existence. That, along with her smug expression and pimping of her kids, is irritating. Her life is not as peachy as she would have people believe. Her cosmetic procedures certainly suggest that. And I’d rather have 10 years left enjoying life, indulging in tasty food, than 30 more years in a slim gristly body courtesy of deprivation and abstinence.

  28. Debbie says:

    This is one hideous woman. Poor Will Smith we thought he was getting away from her.

  29. DANDILION says:

    She and the kids are STARVING.. you live longer or something like that..!

  30. mewmow says:

    Haha. It looks like her face is made of the same material as her dress in that 3rd picture. ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Viv says:

    Well, I don’t look like Jada but then I totally eat for pleasure.
    I have a friend who lost her taste buds (and sense of smell) when she was injured in an accident- all she can taste is sweet, salty, sour, bitter and that’s it. Sharing a cinnabon now is just not the same.
    She says she sometimes thinks she would have rather lost a limb and as harsh as that may seem, I kinda understand. Enjoy your food while you can.

  32. Kelly says:

    Her face is freakish and for someone who probably has a personal trainer, her body isn’t that great.

  33. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Time to exhale, Jada.
    Exhale and unclench.

  34. G says:

    I can’t with this woman…there are a a lot of beautiful women 40 and over that look better then her. Gabriel Union (39 almost 40), Halle Berry, Sanaa Lathan (exact same age), Nia Long (almost 2yrs older)…shall I go on?

  35. Annie says:

    I love her body but oh man that face…

  36. eric says:

    Where is the full body shot? very hard to guess what her body looks like from that picture. She should really think about having those cheek implants removed, looks like chipmunk.

  37. eric says:

    A really beautiful woman over 40 Italian actress Monica Bellucci.

  38. Jaded says:

    If this is the yardstick by which women want to measure themselves at 40+, I’m sad. She’s a gristly, wizened, botoxed, cheek-filled boy. She has no boobs, no warmth about her body or face, it’s all muscle and definition, no character.

    She’s the problem with modern culture today and how a woman’s natural body has come to be reviled. Think of all the stick thin, overly muscled, lipo-suctioned, bolt-on boobed Hollywood bodies these days. Doesn’t it kind of gross you out? I don’t admire Jada at all, in fact I think she’s sending out a bad message to young women, like “look how hot I am because I don’t enjoy food”. How on earth can you NOT enjoy food??? I love to cook, I use herbs and spices and try ethnic dishes -it’s healthy food but damn it’s tasty!

    There’s something seriously lacking in this woman’s life if all she can think about is how fat-free and thin she looks and how she only eats to get a miniscule amount of nutrition.

  39. Beatriz says:

    I miss the cool Jada from the 90ties. Whatever happened to her? Damn.

  40. Em says:

    I don’t particularly admire her body type, but I do like her self confidence. I see no need to compare her to anyone else, at least no one in particular. She looks good and is sharing it with her fans. Nice summer pic, no big deal.

  41. G says:

    Nothing says you’re old like saying “Look at me, I’m not old!” See Madonna.

  42. minxie says:

    Since When was tweaking your face less offensive than tweaking your body?

    No offense – but this is an utterly moronic belief system.
    tweaking is tweaking whether a “fake rack” or fillers to plump up cheeks and botox to freeze expressions.

    Bodies age – period.
    whether or not you seek out medical procedures to alter or restore your body (and face) is up to you.

    But lets not put one over the other.

    She looks scary thin/ripped, probably starves herself, and obviously plumps and freezes her face.

    That should suit the author of this post just fine.

    THANK GOD she didn’t get her tits done – that’s too much.

  43. Stacia says:

    I can’t knock her for her physique but that face(cheeks)could sink a thousand ships and send many a man to a watery grave.
