Aside from her superb acting abilities, Jada Pinkett Smith is known for her amazingly toned arms and super slim physique. But if you ask the 42-year-old mom of two, she’ll tell you that she enjoys being slightly heavier than we’re used to seeing her.

While sharing a photo with Facebook fans, the “Set It Off” actress pointed out that she has put on 8-10 pounds.

“My girlfriend sent me this pic, and I could clearly see the weight I’ve gained which is about…8-10 pounds,” she wrote.

Interestingly, instead of lamenting over the weight, she embraced it, expressing that she actually likes being “fuller.”

“I think I will keep it. I like being a little fuller.”

As for whether or not she’ll be able to fit into her Oscars dress with those extra pounds…well, that’s a different story.

“Let’s just hope it will fit in the Oscars dress,” she added.

Jada signed off by promoting self-love and the idea of embracing yourself, regardless of what the scale says.

“Here’s to loving our bodies by our own standards.”

Oh, and here’s the photo she was referring to:

    I hope Hollywood learns to embrace the extra 10 pounds. Makes you look healthy, young and alive.

    oh Jada, I love you girl but you don’t really know The Struggle 🙂

  • hugh!

    wow less than 10 pounds and its a story? LOL! Who is saying that they can see her 8 pounds???? I do not. Women at times will fluctuate in their a few pounds due to periods, stress, age, environment, diet etc. These celebs travel alot so I its common in my opinion for them to maybe go up and down sometimes. She is still fit and tone. I do realize she is aware and monitors her weight closely. Women should be proactive about their health before it gets out of control. I just don’t see how this is news worthy or her saying she is embracing the extra weight. I am serious due to the way she posing, people standing around her etc. I do not see anything if i saw that pic I would not say she is heavier compared to the one top. Even though she says she happy about it I think she will end up losing and wanted to say something before the media noticed it.

    Jada has always been gorgeous! She definitely looks better with the weight on tho!

    • JRoc85

      IKR!!! If anything, the extra lbs makes Jada look even BETTER (I’m pretty sure Will loves it)!!!!

  • bigdede

    How the heck can she promote self love when she got those unnecessary cheek implants in her face!!! she didn’t love herself that much to butcher her face. Now she looks like a catwoman. SMH, she was so beautiful.

    • hidaya

      True… and when has jada been able to gain extra pounds… Prolly something else surgically enhanced. Nothing is real in Hollywood in 2014!

    • Junie

      Her high & bony cheeks have always been prominent.

      • rainbow

        yes, and she made them more prominent

      • bigdede

        Exactly like rainbow said, she made them more prominent, with cheek implants!!

    • MonicaT

      I was wondering when people were going to say something about her cheeks! Why???? You can tell she had something done and I’m incline to think she had cheek implants!!! Now she has that plastic look !

  • hi-liter

    You look a bit more softer too Jada. A few extra pounds is a good look on you.
