Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that she battled sex addiction when she was younger.

The 46-year-old actress has admitted she has faced several different kinds of addiction throughout her life, and says she once thought ‘everything could be fixed by sex’.

‘My sort of addictions jump. They jump around. When I was younger, I definitely think I had a sex addiction of some kind, yes, that everything could be fixed by sex. You know what I’m saying?’ she said on the new episode of her Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk.

The actress also revealed that she had previously battled an alcohol addiction and that she realised she had hit rock bottom when she drank three bottles of wine whilst home alone.

She added: ‘I remember reaching a rock bottom that time I was in the house by myself and I had those two bottles of wine and was going for the third bottle. And I was like, “Now hold up. You’re in the this house by yourself going onto your third bottle of wine? You might have a problem”.’

But Jada insists quitting her addictions isn’t hard for her, as she has the ability to go ‘cold turkey’ and cut the vice out of her lifestyle.

The mother of two told her daughter Willow and her mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, her regular guests on the show that she is ‘a binger’ and so she always has ‘to watch’ herself.

‘I can just get obsessed with things. It’s not what you’re doing but how you’re with it. Why you’re doing it. It’s the behaviour that’s attached to it because if you want to have a lot of sex, that’s great,’ she said, ‘but why are you having all that sex? That’s what you’ve got to look at.’
