Jada & Willow Smith Open Up About Sexuality: "I've Had Times I've Been Infatuated With A Woman"

Red Table Talk is back to test what it really means to have open conversation!

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith are opening up in a whole new way, ladies. Things got real candid about sexuality in the latest episode of Red Table Talk, and I'm just here for every second.

It all started ahead of their interview with Niecy Nash, who married Jessica Betts last year. For a quick background, the two basically collectively broke the internet and confused us all in a move that made us gather our pearls, say 'OK dennnn', and proceed with celebrating their union. Jada and Willow touched on the subject and took a quick turn when the mother/daughter duo discussed their own feelings of attraction towards women.

Jada began:

"I love being amongst women, but I never could connect to women romantically. But that's not to say that it couldn't be. You just never know."

She then said that she could totally imagine Willow falling in love with a woman, to which Willow replied:

"I've had my fair share of swooning and feeling, 'She's so beautiful, she's so talented.'"

Ultimately, Jada agreed with the mult-hyphenate, and said:

"I've had two times [where] I've been infatuated with a woman. I've swooned two times, early, early on. Like [age] 20."

Willow, who is 20 herself, then quipped:

"I haven't been in love with a woman just yet, but I definitely feel like it could happen. Because I've had very strong feelings for women before."

Laaaaawd, I could not imagine having this conversation with my mother, but healthy communication is what we love!

Eventually, the two brought up a prior conversation where Willow mentioned to her mom that if her marriage to Will didn't work out, Willow could see her mother having a relationship with another woman.

Well, OK dennnn.

Granted, this isn't the first time these two have opened up about their sexuality on the show. Willow touched on polyamory and loving both men and women previously in 2019 when she said:

"I love men and women equally, and so I would definitely want one man, one woman. I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people. I'm not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences. I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don't feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more."

And of course, Jada's relationship status has been discussed on the Red Table many times, thus bringing forward the complex conversation of "entanglements".

And we all know that one got a little messy, but the pair were able to create a very public open dialogue, and move on in their marriage, as so many--without the world watching--have to put their big girl and boy panties on, and do.
