We've loved Jada Pinkett Smith ever since she played the feisty Lena James on A Different World. She has since amazed us on the big and small screen in memorable starring roles in Set It Off and Ali and her hit TV medical drama HawthoRNe. Join us in wishing this Baltimore native, fabulous wife and endearing mother a happy birthday!
Isn't She Lovely?
Born Jada Koren Pinkett in Baltimore in 1971, she was raised by her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and grandmother Marian Banfield.
