While some celebrities, including Eva Mendes, openly express their love for food, Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t one of them.
The 40-year-old, who is married to Will Smith, revealed the secret to her slim waistline in Essence magazine.
"I don't eat for pleasure," she said. "[I] had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook," she said.
"She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don't eat for taste, you eat for nourishment.
"And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that's healthy."
Although she occasionally treats herself to chips and pizza, Jada's diet is very health conscience.
"I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don't fall flat on my face," she said.
And it seems her busy schedule is about to get busier with the mum of three, including Willow, 11, and Jaden, 13 and her step son Trey Smith, 20, about to star in a movie with her husband.
"He can't wait. He was like, 'You and me, next.' I was like, 'Let's do it'."
