Jada Pinkett Smith says she passed out on the set of 'The Nutty Professor' after taking a 'bad batch of ecstasy'
- Pinkett Smith detailed her past issues with drug and
alcoholabuse on " Red Table Talk."
- It culminated in her passing out on the set of the 1996
Eddie Murphymovie, " The Nutty Professor."
- She told everyone "I must have had old medication in a vitamin bottle."
The actress revealed at one point early in her career, her troubles got so bad that they affected her at work.
"I had one incident on 'Nutty Professor.' I passed out," Pinkett Smith said, referring to the 1996 Eddie Murphy movie, "The Nutty Professor." "I went to work high, and it was a bad batch of ecstasy. And I passed out, and I told everybody that I must have had old medication in a vitamin bottle."
Pinkett Smith said that was her wake up call. She said she got herself together and was able to work that day, but after that she went "cold turkey."
Pinkett Smith, who opened up about her past in the episode while talking alongside her daughter Willow Smith and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, said she was the type of person who would party all weekend.
"I wasn't the type of person who was drinking every day, I was like a weekend party girl," she said. "Thursday to Monday morning, I would go."
During the episode, Willow told her mom that she plans to still smoke weed. Pinkett Smith told her daughter to be careful.
"That's why you have to trust the eyes around you," Pinkett Smith told Willow. "Because you won't know. And that was the thing with me. Don't think that people didn't try to tap me on my shoulder. Don't think that when I was at Debbie Allen's throwing up all over her house -"
"Lord have mercy," Banfield-Norris interjected. "Thank you, Debbie. Jesus."
Allen directed Pinkett Smith on the series "A Different World" in the early 1990s.
"I think back on my life, like, I am a walking miracle, no doubt about that," Pinkett Smith said.
