Jada Pinkett-Smith Had Suicidal Thoughts At 40

In a new interview with PEOPLE magazine Jada Pinkett-Smith is opening up about a very dark time in her life when she felt like she couldn't go on anymore and even had suicidal thoughts.


“It just felt like loss. By the time my 40th came, I was like, ‘I can’t do it anymore.’ I was so depleted. I had to really take time out for me and figure out what I wanted for myself. I had to kind of put everyone aside.”

The star says the pressures of marriage, family and all their careers led her to feel this way. She was drained from juggling her family’s four careers and feeling suffocated by what she saw as unrealistic expectations of the conventional marriage paradigm.
