Jada Pinkett Smith remembers a thing or two about young love – and is willing to share some words of wisdom for a lasting marriage with the recently engaged Miley Cyrus.
“Learn how to be friends, especially when you are starting that young,” the Madagascar 3 star says is some of the advice she would give 19-year old Cyrus, who on May 31 became engaged to Liam Hemsworth, 22.
Pinkett Smith, in New York for the premiere of her movie, was also on hand Friday to share “mommy-talk” and advice with mom bloggers at The MOMS, a multiplatform lifestyle brand, and Capri Sun Super V Mamarazzi’s event in Times Square.
“Forever is a long time,” Pinkett Smith, 40, says of being in a lasting relationship. “When you are starting forever at 19 years old, and it is not to say that there is anything wrong with that, but it is just to know that what it is now and what it will be, it is just going to continue to transform and change.”
