Pinkett recently shared her secret to maintaining a flawless bod with Essence magazine, explaining, "I don't eat for pleasure." The Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted star said she "had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook. She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don't eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that's healthy."

The actress also recently told Us Weekly that she's eager to get back in the spotlight. "I'll definitely be doing more on-screen acting. My kids are older now, so they're doing them," she explained. "And now I think I have an opportunity to do a little bit more."
