The 43-year-old mother of two is showing off her body on the latest cover of Shape magazine in a tangerine two-piece with gold accents.
She told the mag, “When my husband of almost 20 years can’t take his eyes off me? That’s amazing. But the number one reason I go to the gym is because it keeps me sane… I can deal with whatever’s coming at me.”
Jada also talked about her petite frame, explaining that she’s five feet tall, but on the outside. “It’s an internal thing. I know that I’m petite but I never think like I am, ever. The truth is, there are times when I feel as big and tall as Will!”
The actress even revealed where she got her "don’t mess with me" attitude. “Often we feel in order to be strong we have to take on male attributes,” she said. “I grew up on the streets of Baltimore and had to put out an energy that said, ‘You do not want to mess with me.’ But I’m okay. I feel safe now… I can focus on love, compassion, openness, and yes, vulnerability.”
