In her new memoir, Jada Pinkett Smith claims that “a lot of assumptions have been made” about her.

According to Jada Pinkett Smith, who acknowledged contributing to rumours about her, people have “made a lot of assumptions” about her. All of these topics will be covered in her future biography.

“In the book people will see that I have to be very accountable of the misunderstandings that are floating,” Pinkett Smith said in a brand-new interview with People that was released on Thursday in conjunction with the publication of the title and cover of her memoir, “Worthy.”

Pinkett Smith, 51, first gained notoriety in Hollywood in the 1990s thanks to appearances on programmes including “A Different World.” Since then, she has acted in popular franchises like “Scream” and “The Matrix,” and she has also made appearances on shows like “Gotham.”

Nowadays, she’s known for being a cohost of the popular, Emmy-winning talk show “Red Table Talk.” 

Aspects of Pinkett Smith’s personal life, from her decades-long marriage to Will Smith to her deep friendship with the late musician Tupac, have also been discussed and speculated about considerably by the public. 

The actor said that despite the plethora of information that’s known about her life, she “wanted to write about my journey to self-worth in a real way.”

Pinkett Smith told People that her memoir will cover “everything,” which may come as a surprise to people who feel like she’s overshared and told the world all about her personal life, namely on “RTT.”

“I think people have made a lot of assumptions,” she said. “And you know what? Rightfully so. I have to take ownership of that, in regards to the narrative that I’ve participated in, the falsehoods about myself.”

“In the book, I really explain all of that extensively as part of my reclamation journey,” she added. “I think a lot of people, not even just women, but a lot of us lose ourselves in narratives that are not necessarily or completely forthright.”

The “Girls Trip” star shared similar comments in an Instagram post on Thursday, writing: “The fact that I have, in the last four years contributed to the creation and perpetuation of falsehoods about myself, in which other untrue narratives were birthed, has surely aided in the misunderstandings that surround me.”

“This fall, with deep humility and respect, I will take back my narrative,” Pinkett Smith said.

Jada Pinkett Smith’s memoir, “Worthy,” is on sale on October 17, 2023.
