Jada Pinkett Smith Celebrates ‘Bald Is Beautiful Day’ On Instagram

Jada Pinkett Smith doesn’t keep the word ‘bald’ out of her mouth.

The actress, 50, posted a gorgeous Instagram selfie in honor of “Bald Is Beautiful Day” on Tuesday.

“Happy Bald is Beautiful day to all my siblings without her❣️❣️❣️,” she captioned the photo.

While her husband, Will Smith, famously slammed Chris Rock six months ago at the 2022 Oscars for his joke about Jada starring as “GI Jane 2,” while reportedly unaware of her alopecia, Jada spoke for first about her fight against hair loss in 2018.

She revealed her diagnosis with the autoimmune disease on her Facebook Watch show, “Red Table Talk.”

“I’ve had problems with hair loss,” she said at the time. “It was scary when it first started. I was in the shower one day with only a handful of hair in my hands and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, am I going bald?’”

The actress added: “It was one of those moments in my life where I was literally shaking with fear.”

After “experimenting” with steroid shots to try and regrow her hair, Smith embraced the baldness by buzzing it off in 2021 — inspired by daughter Willow Smith, who also shaved her head.

Showing off a new bald spot in December 2021, the “Matrix” star said: “Mommy will have to bring it to the scalp so no one thinks she’s had brain surgery or something… Me and this alopecia are going to be friends.. . point! “

While she’s seemingly at peace with her condition, Jada also hopes Will and Chris Rock can get together too. On an episode of “Red Table Talk” after the infamous blow, she said she really wants “these two intelligent, capable men to have a chance to heal, talk this out and reconcile.”

While the “Fresh Prince” star apologized for hitting Rock and was banned from all Academy events by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for 10 years, the comedian doesn’t seem to forgive him.

“The motherfucker hit me over a bulls-t joke, the funniest joke I’ve ever told,” he told tour mate Dave Chapelle earlier this month, in part.
