The Girls Trip star stunned in gold on the BET Awards red carpet Sunday evening and let ET's Kevin Frazier in on her secrets to aging ever so gracefully.
"It's happiness," she gushed. "As I get older, I get more and more happy. I just get more understanding about myself and about life, and I get more and more comfortable in my skin. Man, if I felt this way, the way I feel now, in my 20s? Man, I woulda been dangerous!"
Pinkett Smith recently made headlines for reportedly saying that her children had all moved out of the home she shares with husband Will Smith. Setting the record straight on Sunday, the actress told ET that was only partially true.
"Listen, only Jaden and Trey," she said. "Yes, Willow hasn't left yet. Now, she will be 18 soon and I'm sure as soon as she turns 18, she's out. But I have two that are gone."
"That's what we prepare them for -- to go," she continued. "So Mommy goes, 'Bye!' ... The thing is, Jaden lives five minutes from me. Trey lives five minutes from me. They're at the house every day. It's almost like as your kids get older, they actually need you more. So, I have three older kids that need me, like, more than ever! I'm like, 'I'mma get my groove back, I got my freedom.' It's like, no."
Pinkett Smith and Smith will celebrate 20 years of marriage later this year and they're still as adorable as ever! During a visit to the New Orleans set of Girls Trip, Frazier says he witnessed some super cute PDA from the super couple.
"Between every take, these two sat together and cuddled," Frazier gushed. "I was like, this is some real love stuff!"
"I love it when Will's on set with me because it just makes me feel relaxed," Pinkett Smith responded. "I feel like whenever he's there, everything's gonna be OK. I just, I get real mushy because he's there and I just feel taken care of."
Girls Trip follows a group of four lifelong friends as they travel to the Essence Festival for a wild ride through the Big Easy. Directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the film also stars Queen Latifah, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish.
"We had so much fun," Pinkett Smith gushed of the filming process. "And you know what was really fun was just having a group of women that love women, can enjoy the company of other women, wanna support other women. So, that's what made it even more enjoyable. We had -- it felt like a girls' trip, making the movie!"
