Jada Pinkett Smith opened up about her past struggles with alcohol and drugs on Wednesday’s episode of “Red Table Talk,” and recalled the time she passed out on the set of The Nutty Professor.
I had one incident. That was an eye-opening incident for me as well. I had one incident on ‘The Nutty Professor, ‘I passed out. I went to work high and it was a bad batch of ecstasy and I passed out. I told everybody that I must have had old medication in the vitamin bottle.
I’ll tell you what I did though, got my ass together and got on that set. That was the last time
Jada said the incident happened while she was in the makeup trailer. She said during that time in her life she was doing cocktails, which she described as a mix of ecstasy, alcohol, and marijuana.
I was like, ‘This is not cocaine, this is not heroin,’ I wasn’t doing things I thought was addictive but I would do those three together. That was my cocktail.
Jada revealed that she quit cold turkey 22 years ago, around the time her son Jaden was born.
She also said she use to drink hard liquor in high school, and she had a reputation that she could “drink almost anybody under the table.”
