In the sultry spread, the mom of teens Jaden, 16, and Willow, 14, talks about the importance of working out and staying in shape. “When my husband of almost 20 years can’t take his eyes off me? That’s amazing,” she said. “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.”

Though the Gotham star stands at 5-feet tall and is 108 pounds, you wouldn’t be able to tell by her vast sense of inner confidence and pride. “It’s an internal thing. I know that I’m petite but I never think like I am, ever,” Pinkett Smith explained. “The truth is, there are times when I feel as big and tall as Will!”

She also told the mag that she credits a lot of her toughness and grit to her upbringing. “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.'” She added, “But I’m okay. I feel safe now…I can focus on love, compassion, openness, and yes, vulnerability.”
