Jada Pinkett Smith revealed she use to be heavily addicted to weed, ecstasy, and alcohol.


Page Six reported that Smith said she would combine wine or other alcohol with ecstasy and weed when she developed a tolerance to solely drinking.

“Drinking red wine for me was like drinking glasses of water,” she shared on Facebook Watch’s “Red Table Talk.” “Because I’m used to that hard hit. I was drinking hard in high school, too, and when I got out here I was doing cocktails. So, ecstasy, alcohol, weed. Let me tell you, I was having myself a little ball.”

Smith was able to stop one day after reaching for a third bottle of wine and passing out on the set of the “The Nutty Professor.”

“I went to work high and it was a bad batch of ecstasy,” she recalled. “And I passed out and I told everybody that I must have had old medication in a vitamin bottle. But I’ll tell you what I did, though. I got my ass together and got on that set. That was the last time.”

Smith uses her platform to be open about her life and bring her family closer together
