Los Angeles: Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that she prefers going to gym because it keeps her sane.
The 43-year-old actress, who bares her toned abs, arms, and overall fit physique in an orange swimsuit for Shape magazine's January/February 2015 issue.
"When my husband of almost 20 years can't take his eyes off me? That's amazing. But the number one reason I go to the gym is because it keeps me sane; I can deal with whatever's coming at me," she said.
Pinkett Smith credits a lot of her toughness and grit to her upbringing. "Often we feel in order to be strong we have to take on male attributes. I grew up on the streets of Baltimore and had to put out an energy that said, 'You do not want to mess with me'. But I'm okay. I feel safe now... I can focus on love, compassion, openness, and yes, vulnerability."
