Jada Pinkett Smith: I’ve Gained 10lbs And Love It, Worried She Won’t Fit In Oscar Dress, Though

Jada Pinkett Smith has decided to celebrate the fact that she has put on a few more pounds instead of hiding away in a gym until she has returned to her svelter figure.

The 42-year-old actress noticed that she had become a tad “fuller figured” after she came across a picture of herself alongside her husband Will Smith, and their daughter Willow at a recent UFC 170 event, which was held at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

However, far from being embarrassed by her new shape Jada wrote on Facebook, “My girlfriend sent me this pic, and I could clearly see the weight I’ve gained which is about…8-10 pounds. I think I will keep it. I like being a lil…fuller;)”

There are more pressing concerns for Mrs Smith though, as there is a gathering taking place in Los Angeles on Sunday that she has purchased a special garment for. “Let’s just hope it will fit in The Oscars dress,” she noted. But she was able to look beyond this event by declaring, “Here’s to loving our bodies by our own standards:) Happy Monday!”

Earlier today, The Inquisitr reported that Smith will be appearing in the Batman television prequel, Gotham, after she was cast as Fish Mooney, a new character who will be a villain in the series.

Smith informed her Facebook followers of her decision on February 19, writing, “Last night, I decided to accept the role of Fish Mooney, who is the sadistic villain in thee upcoming Batman prequel, Gotham, for Fox TV. I’ve committed to a year to work alongside a very talented cast, a super cool, creative and talented head writer and an extraordinary director. This one…is going to be funnnnnn!”

Mooney is believed to own and run her own nightclub, while she has been described as a psychopath with the “brains of a chess grandmaster and the morals of a jackal.” Jada will also showcase a “sadistic lust for power behind and an exquisitely polite demeanor.”

Recently, Fox chairman, Kevin Reilly provided more insight into Gotham by explaining:

“This is all of the classic Batman characters. It follows the arc of how they all became what they were. I’ve read the script its really good. It’s going to be this operatic soap that has a slightly larger-than-life quality…. We’re not starting in that world where the villains are in costume. You see markers for it that are delicious you see where the evolution and eccentricity where they become those characters. We don’t start off with capes and costumes.”
