Jada Pinkett Smith

Behind every A-list box office star is a strong, smart woman, but Jada Pinkett Smith has never been content with just standing by her man. An accomplished actress in her own right, Smith is also a producer and partners with her husband in their company Overbrook Entertainment. Behind the scenes, Jada has produced both big-budget blockbusters like The Karate Kid and powerful independent films like The Secret Life of Bees and Free Angela and All Political Prisoners.
