Jada Pinkett Smith Shows Off Her Beach Body

July 30, 2012 By:

There's photographic proof that 40 really is the new 30, and Jada Pinkett Smith wants you all to know about it.

The actress and mom tweeted a picture of herself knee-deep in the tropical waters of a beachy coast. With the confidence of a superstar, she lets it all hang out in the shot. But, actually, there isn’t much hanging.

Depending on who you are, the post will either a) Make you feel horrible about your own physique, b) inspire you to work out even more, c) turn you on, or d) wonder why Jada would think we even care in the first place.

In the shot, Jada rocks her toned body in a skimpy and colorful bikini, complete with reds, oranges, and blues. But, what’s more pronounced is the amount of skin that the bikini doesn’t cover up.

“To my Forty and over crew! Don’t believe the hype...we DO get better with age!” she tweeted along with the post.

Jada is three years her husband Will Smith’s junior. She turned 40 last September. The couple shares two teenage children together, Jaden, 14, and Willow, 11.

Willow and her mom last made headlines for their appearance at the United States Senate hearing earlier this month. Their appearance was part of an effort to spread the word about the worldwide human trafficking crisis.

“Here almost 150 years after the abolition of slavery in the United States, conservative estimates suggest that 40,000 people are enslaved on our soil at any moment,” Jada told the Senate at the hearing.

Though, on that day in Washington, she skipped the bikini and stuck to an “I Free Slaves” T-shirt.
