Jada Pinkett Smith approves of strip clubs

Jada Pinkett Smith doesn't have a problem with strip clubs.

The 'Magic Mike XXL' actress, who is married to Will Smith, claims she has never been to one before, but doesn't think there is anything wrong with adult entertainment.

The 43-year-old star said: "I've never been to a male strip club. Adult entertainment, when you think about it, is kind of a dirty word.

"There's no reason adult entertainment can't be celebratory... it's about exploration. [The movie] rejuvenated my energy and spirit."

Jada stars as an MC at a stripper convention in the new film and credits co-star Channing Tatum for giving her a new perspective on the idea.

She said: "I got to this convention with hundreds of women and there was a solidarity between us that I had never felt before. We had some fine-ass men to entertain us and make us feel good about ourselves."

Despite having no issues with strippers, Jada doesn't think her children, Jaden, 16, and Willow, 14, will watch the new film.

She told Us Weekly magazine: "I don't think so. This is where you go, 'Mommy's going to do this red carpet. I think you guys should stay at home.' "
