Actress Jada Pinkett Smith is still unlocking more details about herself following some of her recent shocking revelations in her Facebook Watch series, ‘Red Table Talk’.
In the new episode of the talk show, the actress confessed she once battled sex and alcohol addiction when she was younger. Will Smith’s wife said she thought she could fix everything with sex in the yet another revealing episode.
On her sex addiction, she said; “When I was younger, I definitely think I had a sex addiction of some kind, yes, that everything could be fixed by sex. You know what I’m saying?”
The 46-year-old also come clean on fighting a booze addiction, which threatened to get out of control. “I remember reaching a rock bottom that time I was in the house by myself and I had those two bottles of wine and was going for the third bottle,” she shared.
“And I was like, ‘Now hold up. You’re in this house by yourself going onto your third bottle of wine? You might have a problem,’” she said.
To overcome the addictions, Jada modified her behavior by learning to control her impulses. “So I went cold turkey,” she added. “That’s the thing about me: I can go cold turkey. I am a binger, and I always have to watch myself and I can just get obsessed with things.
“It’s not what you’re doing but how you’re with it. Why you’re doing it. It’s the behavior that’s attached to it because if you want to have a lot of sex, that’s great, but why are you having all that sex? That’s what you’ve got to look at.”
