The actress, who has a son, Jaden, 15, and daughter Willow, 12, with her husband Will Smith, said she had struggled with addiction in the past but didn’t reveal any details.

She wrote: “What I learned about myself is this, when I was younger I was not a good problem solver, meaning I had a very difficult time with dealing with my problems in life. I had many addictions, of several kinds, to deal with my life issues, but today, at 42, I have my wisdom, my heart and my conscience as the only tools to overcome life’s inevitable obstacles.”
