Jada Pinkett-Smith may look like she’s not a day over 30, but today the wife, mother, actress, and singer-songwriter turns 46 year’s young. Honestly, it’s hard to believe we’re talking about the same smart-mouthed college girl on A Different World when we look at the A-lister and her equally famous husband today. But Jada has more than paid her dues when it comes to the entertainment industry and she’s picked up quite a few famous friends along the way.

In celebration of her birthday, we decided to take a look back at some of Jada Pinkett’s most memorable moments and the famous men and women who’ve been by her side along the way. Check out these throwback photos as you take a trip down memory lane on this beauty’s birthday.
