Watch: Jada Pinkett Smith on Her Career, First Role and ‘Gotham’

Today is Jada Pinkett Smith‘s forty-fourth birthday. Though it isn’t clear if her Gotham character, Fish Mooney, will ever be featured on the series again (Season two of the Batman series begins in just two days), Pinkett Smith often has other projects in the pipeline and it’s likely she’ll be appearing in something high-profile sooner than you think.

In this conversation with Screen Actors Guild Foundation conducted by Deadline’s Pete Hammond, Pinkett Smith talks about her entire career, from her first major role in Menace II Society through Gotham. She shares plenty of funny and inspirational stories from her career.
