Is Jada Pinkett-Smith bald? Actress jokes about condition in video
'At this point I can only laugh,' Jada Pinkett-Smith said while discussing her struggles
Jada Pinkett-Smith recently went on Instagram to talk about her with alopecia. The 50-year-old multi-hyphenate has talked about her hair loss and other struggles that come with it. She pointed viewers towards a particular linear patch on her scalp while saying, "at this point I can only laugh" right at the opening of the video.
Smith doesn't appear to be looking particularly sad in the video. Instead, she looks and sounds pretty cheery, talking about her alopecia in a funny manner and saying that the patch of line on her head just decided to show up. Smith seems to be taking her condition pretty well.
In the video, Smith was seen sporting a grey crewneck sweatshirt and a pair of pretty stud earrings. She was also seen wearing Christmas-themed red nails. Her 48-second video also showed a line of flesh with no hair on it although she already has a very low buzzcut. "Now, ya'll know I've been struggling with alopecia," said the actress, before breaking into a little giggle. She angled the camera towards her head and went on to say that it happened almost suddenly. She said that it's a little tricky now to hide but she would make it work.
Smith had announced to the public that she had alopecia early back in 2018. She even told fans about how much she wanted to rock a shaved head. She said, "for me, it was a mixture of a spiritual calling and also going. At some point, your hairline is going to be back here... so we might as well just do it now." Earlier in 2021, she also talked about shaving her head on one of her Facebook Watch Episodes.
