Jada Pinkett Smith thought she'd be dead by age of 21
Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that she finds turning 40 surreal as she was doubtful that she would live past 21 years.
The ‘Madagascar- 3’ star, who turned 40 in September 2011, admitted that she grew up in such a tough neighbourhood, she never expected to live so long.
“I grew up in a drug-infested neighbourhood where you walk out each day and you just hope that you make it. I came from a war zone,” Contactmusic quoted Smith as telling You magazine.
“There was a possibility that I wouldn’t make it past 21 - that was the reality. When I turned 40 it was a surreal moment because I had never imagined reaching 40. I looked at my husband and said, ‘Oh my God, I’m 40! What am I going to do now?’ So yes, it does put things in perspective,” the mother of two added.
