Whoa, mama!

Jada Pinkett Smith gave her Twitter followers a treat on Saturday: the actress posted a sexy photo of herself emerging from the ocean, showing off her impressively toned, Bond Girl-esque physique.

But Pinkett Smith, 40, wasn’t just displaying her own hard work – she had an inspirational message for other women her age to accompany the picture.

“To my Forty and over crew!” she Tweeted. “Don’t believe the hype we DO get better with age!”

So how does Will Smith‘s wife of 14 years keep that rockin’ bod?

“I don’t eat for pleasure,” she recently told Essence magazine. “I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don’t fall flat on my face.”
