Jada Pinkett Smith

Actor/Producer/Singer Like her future husband Will Smith, Jada Pinkett transitioned from a role on a hit TV show (A Different World) into a stellar film career. Known for her proud, bold demeanor, she has consistently played strong female film characters like Ronnie in 1993’s Menace II Society and Stony in 1996’s Set It Off. She may be best known for her portrayal of Niobe in 2003’s The Matrix: Reloaded. These days she runs her own production company, writes and sings with the rock band Wicked Wisdom, and keeps an eye on her children Willow and Jaden, both of whom have flourishing careers of their own. She most recently starred in (and executive produced) the hit TV series Hawthorne.
