The drama surrounding the 2022 Oscars has put three actors in the spotlight.
A joke from presenter Chris Rock ended in a brief but aggressive confrontation at the ceremony after Will Smith got up from his seat, crossed the stage and slapped Rock in the face. The altercation was sparked by a blow from Rock to Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, taking aim at her recent hair loss. The discussion around who was right has been ongoing since the end of the event and has yet to simmer.
The debate surrounding the Oscars drama is prompting a host of questions about Pinkett Smith and the medical condition surrounding her hair loss. It also raises questions about the 50-year-old actress in general as people dig into details to bolster their case.
The net worth of Jada Pinkett Smith
Pinkett Smith and her husband are no strangers to the spotlight. They both enjoyed impressive careers spanning all genres over several decades and their famous family is often at the center of Hollywood gossip. In recent years, additional gossip has sprung up around the family’s typically genteel image after Pinkett Smith admitted to having an affair with the much younger August Alsina during a split from Smith. News of the case quickly went viral, sparking a full-fledged debate.
Aside from the affair, however, and some controversies surrounding their parenting style, the Smiths for the most part retain their status as one of Hollywood’s docile families. Pinkett Smith and Smith have enjoyed a much longer marriage than most of their famous peers, sharing nearly 25 years together so far.
Smith’s name is slightly better known than his wife’s, but Pinkett Smith remains a Hollywood kingpin. She’s mostly taken a step back from movies in recent years, instead devoting much of her time to her talk show, Red table discussion. The award-winning series follows three generations of the Pinkett Smith family, from her mother – Adrienne Banfield-Norris – to Pinkett Smith and her daughter, Willow Smith. It aims to provide “a forum where the views of three different generations on a wide variety of topics are shared”.
Pinkett Smith’s focus on her talk show also didn’t entirely deprive her of the opportunity to participate in films. She still found time in her busy schedule to appear in 2021 The Matrix Resurrections as well as several roles in television programs. Pinkett Smith is still a heavyweight in the world of Hollywood, and that prominence is reflected in her net worth. However, she does not share any income with her husband, a fact that becomes clear when looking at the couple’s income over the years.
Pinkett Smith has a net worth of around $50 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. That’s over $300 million less than her husband, but still an enviable number by any measure. Pinkett Smith has amassed her wealth over years of filming for film and television projects, as well as working in music videos, fashion and as a writer of children’s books.
