Movie star Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed how she relaxes off-set from filming high pressure ER drama HawthoRNe.

In the new Sony Entertainment Channel medical drama Jada plays an under fire nursing boss in tough city hospital Richmond Trinity.

The scripts are emotionally charged and often leave Jada drained, but she told Purple Revolver she relaxes by listening to music, yoga and taking to the outdoors with her family.

Wife of Hollywood hunk Will Smith also told how he’s not keen on outdoor pursuits, which pint-sized Jada enjoys mostly with her children Willow and Jaden.

Speaking at an exclusive screening at Sony HQ Jada said: “To relax I love to do a lot of yoga, and be outside following nature pursuits.

“With the kids, I’m often out surfing, hiking and surfboarding. Doing exercise outdoors helps to keep us grounded. I try to get Will out, but he’s not an outdoors kinda guy.”

Jada also told us what music she listens to, describing herself as a ‘ride or die’ East Coast hip hop fan.

She added: “I’m always listening to lots of types of music, of course, I listen to 21st Century Girl (by Willow), Esperanza Spalding, Madonna, Aha – a lot of oldies, but goodies.

“But I’m also a ‘ride or die’ East Coast hip hop head.”
