“It upset me because I didn’t understand why we had to be in your book, because we really didn’t have anything to do with this. 

After shutting down each other for years, Jada Smith and Leah Remini buried the hatched in 2018 during Smith’s revelatory Red Table Talk. Will Smith’s wife revealed that Remini reached out to her, which was really huge of her.

Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t just known for being one of the closest pals of Tom Cruise, but the Red Table Talk host was equally close to his ex-wife, Katie Holmes. She once defended Holmes by declaring that it was Holmes who ran the show. The Angel Has Fallen actress famously said:

“I met Kate through Tom – I didn’t know her before Tom. I think everybody has this image: Poor little Kate, she doesn’t have the strength to take care of herself.

People don’t know that behind all that grace is a tiger. I’ve witnessed it! I’ve had conversations with Kate personally where the tigress comes out of her, that fight.”

Being the ex-couple’s oldest pals, the Smiths once shared an incident where Katie Holmes commented, and that was the moment Pinkett Smith told Will Smith, “You know what? I can ride with her.” The actress referred to Holmes as “extremely protective yet graceful”.

Not only this but on reports that Holmes was Tom Cruise’s prisoner, Jada Smith famously said:

“It burns my soul – I see her in the house with Tom; he doesn’t have that on her! It kills me. ‘Tom’s this monster and he’s got her chained up in the basement and he’s forcing Scientology down her throat’ – it’s bulls.”

The actress added, “Let me tell you: Kate ain’t no little wimpy kitty cat.” Jada Smith felt that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were a happy, strong family, but again, it’s Scientology that caused all the hurt in the world, and even Jada Pinkett Smith can deny that! Also, Tom Cruise wasn’t there for the Smiths during the infamous Oscar slap scandal.
