Jada Pinkett-Smith Turns 40 Today

Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith may not have another season of Hawthorne Heights to head back to but she does have something else to celebrate today, her 40th birthday.

Smith was born in Baltimore in 1971 and married actor Will Smith on December 31, 1997.

Jada Pinkett-Smith has had an impressive career that spans acting, singing (as the lead singer and lyricist for Wicked Wisdom) and video directing. Jada was also Miss Maryland 1988. Her film credits include The Matrix Reloaded, Collateral, Madagascar, The Human Contract and Hawthorne Heights among others.

In recent months rumors have circulated that an affair was happening between Pinkett and Marc Anthony who celebrated a 43rd birthday of his own on Friday.

Earlier this week Will and Jada were seen at an NFL game, reportedly to quell rumors of the affair.

Happy Birthday to Jada.
