Sure Pinkett Smith doesn’t keep the word “bald” out of her mouth.
The actress, 50, posted a gorgeous Instagram selfie on Tuesday to celebrate “Bald Is Beautiful Day.”
“Happy Bald is Beautiful day to all my brothers and sisters without hair❣️❣️❣️,” she captioned the photo.
While her husband, Will Smith, famously slammed Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars six months ago for his joke about Jada starring in “GI Jane 2” while allegedly not knowing about her alopecia, Jada first spoke about her hair loss battle in 2018.
She revealed her diagnosis with the autoimmune disorder on her Facebook Watch show, “Red Table Talk.”
“I’ve had problems with hair loss,” she said at the time. – It was terrifying when it started. I was in the shower one day and I just had a handful of hair in my hands and I just thought, ‘Oh my God, am I going bald?'”
The actress added, “It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking with fear.”
After “experimenting” with steroid injections to try and regrow her hair, Smith embraced the bald spot by shaving it off in 2021 – inspired by her daughter Willow Smith, who has also shaved her head.
Showing off a new bald spot in December 2021, the ‘Matrix’ star said: ‘Mommy needs to get it down to her scalp so no one thinks she’s had brain surgery or something… Me and this alopecia are going to be friends… period! “
While she’s seemingly at peace with her condition, Jada also hopes that Will and Chris Rock can get together as well. In an episode of “Red Table Talk” after the infamous slap, she said she really wants “these two intelligent, capable men to have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile.”
Will and Jada were all smiles on the Oscars 2022 red carpet before Rock’s joke during the show.
After the incident, Will got to stay and accept the award for Best Actor, which he proudly displayed at the Vanity Fair after-party.

While the “Fresh Prince” star apologized for punching Rock and was banned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from all Academy events for 10 years, the comedian doesn’t seem to have forgiven him.
“Grandma beat me to a bulls-t joke, the best joke I’ve ever told,” he told tour mate Dave Chapelle in part earlier this month.
