Willow Smith revealed how happy her father Will Smith is that she is not curvy. The 17 year old Willow in an interview flashed back her memory and revealed that once her dad told her that he is happy that she is not curvy, as guys look at girls, he further said he wanted men to focus on your intellect.
‘He was so happy that, you know, I wasn’t curvy, because guys look at girls,’ she told her mother Jada Pinkett Smith and grandmother Adrienne Banfield Norris on their Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk.
She further explained that Will ‘was like: “Guys will look at your brain more if you’re not curvier,” and that kind of just stiffen all of my experiences.’

‘But you know,’ said Adrienne, ‘it’s just so funny that you would be amazed- because there are so many people who would die for that body.’
and Willow in response just sighed and shrugged.
further she said ‘But I hear, you know, my friends that are curvy – they are telling me: “It’s so great that you can just, like, wear some shorts and a tank top and not feel, like, overexposed or feel like people are looking at you differently or feel like….”
‘People are looking at you in a sexual manner,’ Jada finished.

Exactly,’ her daughter concurred, ‘even more than they usually would, you know? Everyone wants what they don’t have.’
In Jada’s perspective: ‘I don’t know if that’ll ever change, though. I really don’t. I don’t know if that’ll ever change.’
‘I don’t think it will. It’s always been like that,’ said Adrienne with a shade of resignation in her voice. Willow nodded in apparent agreement.
Jada, who just celebrated her 20th wedding anniversary with Will Smith last year, remembered that ‘I had the same struggle’ over being skinny when she was younger.
Adrienne said: ‘Oh, we – yeah, ’cause we’re little people. We’re little people, and when we wee – both of us – when we were really young, we were like string beans.’
She and her daughter shared how in their respective time of youth they pull ‘two pairs of those thick socks’ in order to make their ‘legs look fatter.’

Jada remebered: ‘Well, I used to hate wearing shorts. I used to think my legs were so skinny. I remember Adrienne going: “Jada, you have beautiful legs!”
‘And then I see in my – hear myself telling Willow the same thing: “Willow, you’ve got beautiful legs!” You know?’ said Jada, who also have a son Jaden, 19, with Will.
Will Smith also has a 25-year-old son called Trey by his first wife Sheree Zampino – who was a guest on the pilot episode of Red Table Talk.
