The Biggest Revelations from Jada Pinkett Smith's 'Red Table Talk'

The actress also talks about husband Will Smith's "Indiana Jones" kick and why she made him go to a theater to watch himself in "Aladdin."

The whole point of Jada Pinkett Smith's "Red Table Talk" series on Facebook Watch is that it is no holds barred. Every topic is valid and she really did think there was nothing that would make her uncomfortable. She was wrong.

The actress admitted to Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night that she was actually surprised to find out she got a little uncomfortable talking about pornography with her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne in a recent episode (that made husband Will uncomfortable, too).

"I never thought that I personally would have a TMI moment and that was the show," she admitted.

Porn Table Talk

Jada did feel it was an important topic to discuss, and while she hung her head in an admission of "guilt," such as it is, she also said the idea to even cover the topic was not hers alone.

"It was a group decision," she said finally. "It was, because there were a lot of women; part of our production team; and a lot of friends of ours that have had problems with their mates and their relationships because of pornography. So we decided to tackle that issue at the red table, but I must say, I learned a little too much about my mother and surely about my daughter."

It wasn't her first encounter with pornography in Willow's world, though, as Jada also shared a story from when her 18-year-old daughter was ten years old. It was a culture shock for Jada because it went down when Willow was trying to show her mom her Tumblr page and had to pre-warn her that there is a lot of questionable content on there.

To say Jada was shocked at the hardcore imagery would be an understatement but Willow was totally chill, like that's just the way it is, mom, get it together!

Indiana Smith

Will Smith has already opened up about the skydiving incident that left his father-in-law unconscious before he hit the ground, but it was a scary moment for sure for the whole family and one that has Jada rethinking Will's new adventurous side.

At the time, she was thinking, "Oh my goodness, now this man killed my mother's fourth-but-favorite husband. This could be the straw that breaks the camel's back."

Thankfully, her stepfather was fine, but that doesn't mean he and the rest of the family need to be down for every adventure, do they?

"I think he's on this Indiana Jones kick," Jada said. "I told him, look, you can do that, but remember, he didn't take the rest of the Joneses with him, okay. It was just Indiana, so we need to do that."

Apparently, Will didn't take the message because he's already planning the next family vacation to the Serengeti to watch the wildebeests migrate with National Geographic. "Now this is considered a vacation," Jada lamented. "Mind you the crocodiles await the wildebeests as they migrate across the river. And I said, really, I would just like to go to Maui and play golf."

And while Will is planning a hot air balloon over the plains to see the migration from what's sure to be an amazing vantage point, there's no talk of anyone having to jump out of the balloon, so it already sounds safer than their last adventure.

Aladdin of the People

Jada had another clash with her husband recently, but this time she had to concede that it was definitely more her doing than his.

"It's funny how tables will turn in partnerships," she said. "All these years I was like, You spend too much time worrying about your career and box office. And for the first time he didn't care, so of course I did."

The actress was extremely frustrated with the early negative reactions to Smith in "Aladdin" and the drubbing the film took from critics (it currently holds a 56% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes). Well, Jada wasn't going to allow that!

"I was like, Saturday night, we're gonna go to the movie theater and you're gonna see that you made a movie for the people," she said. And so they did, and the crowd loved it (audiences have it at 94% positive on RT) and Will Smith hung around after to sign autographs for everyone.

Did you think he might watch it incognito? "You know Will is not going to go into a movie theater and not let people know that he's there," Jada laughed at the very thought.

So did it make him feel better to see that enthusiastic response from "the people"?

"He didn't care, that's the thing," Jada said of the critical response. "It cheered me up. He was like, 'Babe, it's okay.' And I was like, 'No, we're gonna go and I want you to know--' He was like, 'No, you want to know.'"

And so she did. But at least she knows that she was right. The film was made to please the people and it appears to have done just that.

"Red Table Talk" airs Mondays on Facebook Watch, and Jada teased an upcoming episode about polyamory that was spurred by a thrupple Willow follows on social media ... so of course Jimmy wondered if Willow might be hinting at something. Maybe we'll find out.
