Jada Pinkett Smith has been very open about her battle with alopecia.
The actress, wife of Will Smith, shaved her head when she accepted the hair loss condition and wasn’t happy when her look was made the butt of a joke by comedian Chris Rock.
Chris ended up getting punched in the face by Will after trying to joke about Jada at the Oscars last night.
He had told her he was looking forward to seeing her in the GI Jane sequel – referencing how Demi Moore shaved her head for the role.
The Hollywood couple appeared to be laughing at it at first, but Jada’s face soon drooped and she seemed annoyed at the comments.
At that moment, Will stormed the stage and punched Chris in the face.
After returning to his seat, Will told Chris, “Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth.”
The moment left everyone in the room – and watching at home – in shock, but it’s no wonder Jada didn’t appreciate cracking jokes about her condition.
Jada was first diagnosed with the autoimmune disease in 2018 and has been open about her decision to shave her hair.
She said on her Facebook show Red Table Talk, “For me it was a mix of a spiritual calling and thinking, ‘Eventually your hairline will be back here… so we might as well just do it now’.”
The stunning actress looked so good with her shaved head that she inspired her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris to rock the look too.
And her fans praised her when she showed off her new look for the first time.
She said Willow made her do it and posed alongside her daughter as they both proudly showed off their new looks.
Jada wrote alongside the picture, “Willow got me into it because it was time to let go BUT… my 50s are about to be divinely lit with this shed.”
And Willow shared the same snap, writing, “A gift is pure when given from the heart to the right person at the right time and place, and when we expect nothing in return.”

Both women have been showered with compliments from fans who have been blown away by their stunning transformations.
One said to Jada: “Beautiful. It just shows that beautiful face and soulful eyes more clearly.”
While another commented: “Absolutely stunning. I’ve been thinking about doing this for so many years…maybe I need to jump on that too!”
“The sacred feminine in you is absolutely beautiful. She expresses herself to the extreme. You are divine,” one wrote.
