“I wasn’t in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not, thank goodness,” Pinkett-Smith told Willow Smith and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones.

“I actually feel like I was using ‘addiction’ a little lightly. And maybe I’ll say now that I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life where I was trying to practice abstinence,” she continued.

Pinkett-Smith credited her porn addiction as her attempt to deal with the “emptiness” she felt at the time. The “Girl’s Trip” star also revealed that porn damaged her real relationships because it gave her “false expectations.”

Pinkett-Smith was not in a relationship during her addiction, but has been married to actor Will Smith for the past 22 years.

The “Bad Moms” actress and her daughter also discussed the first time she found out Willow had seen porn after finding it on her Tumblr.
