    “Will’s [Smith] like, ‘We just came from Oslo, going to the [2009] Nobel Peace Prize ceremony [for Barack Obama] as a family, you’ve got a big house with a lake — isn’t this amazing?!’ And I’m like, ‘No’. By the time my 40th [birthday] came, I was like, ‘I can’t do it anymore.’ I was so depleted.” Jada Pinkett Smith continued on the incident.
