Willow Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith and her mom, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, sat down for a full conversation of family therapy leading up to Mother’s Day this weekend.

The three powerful African-American women congregated around the red table, which Jada says represents “raw conversation,” to discuss deep family issues and problems that had been resonating since the 40-year-old’s childhood. 

They didn’t waste anytime cutting to the chase. Adrienne’s first question to daughter Jada was:

“How do all my efforts to be a better grandmother, than I was a mother make you feel…any resentment?”

Throughout the entire discussion, they made a pact to be as open and honest as possible with each other.

Later, The Matrix Reloaded actress asked her 11-year-old daughter if there was one thing she could change about her life. She took a step back and responded:

“If I had to change one thing about my life, it would probably be, I wouldn’t be famous because when you’re famous it’s so hard. Let’s say if a regular girl is going to the book store, it’s ten times harder to go everywhere [when you’re famous]. But some people are like, ‘Oh, it’s so easy,’ and I’m like, ‘As fast as you can get there, it’s going to take me ten more minutes to get there.’ Because I have to call security.”

Willow then added:

“Sometimes I don’t want to be, but then sometimes I do because when there’s a problem in the world, more people will listen to me…it’s kind of like helping people and if I’m not [famous], then I can’t help people as much as I would if I was famous.”

It seems like little Willow is wise beyond her years. Having a celebrity status is a double-edged sword.

Overall, the family is very functional, full of love, and they realize the key to any great relationship is communication.
