*Jada Pinkett Smith visited “The View” on Monday to discuss the season premiere of her TNT series “HawthoRNe,” her spicy marriage to Will Smith and her son Jaden’s performance in “The Karate Kid” – particularly his first on-screen kiss.

Smith also explains how her daughter Willow inspired her to pose nude for one of the two available covers of Essence magazine’s current issue.

The actress also plugged “HawthoRNe” and discussed other topics on Detroit’s WJLB.

During her phone conversation with COCO, Foolish and Mr. Chase, she was asked about her close friendship with the late Tupac Shakur. Jada described their relationship as a “platonic romance.”

“We knew us being together in a romantic way would destroy everything because we were both fire,” she said. “We would burn everything up! So we knew in order to preserve our relationship there was no way we could ever add romance to it cause we probably would’ve killed each other!”


Regarding her sexually-open marriage with husband Will Smith, she made it clear that no man could ever replace Will, but it is ok to have fun…

“We always have people that we’re attracted to that we talk about. That don’t stop just because you’re married,” she said. “Somebody’s always gonna catch your eye. That’s real. Somebody’s gonna always be prettier than me, and somebody’s always gonna be more in awe of him than me and he gonna be like (in Will’s voice) ‘Yo she really like me,’ (laughter) but as far as somebody being right for us… is there somebody right for a nice night? Maybe. But somebody that can sustain our life and sustain what we’ve built together, absolutely not!”
