Jada Pinkett Smith had no idea that her spiritual photo would spark so many jokes!
The “Matrix” actress shared a beautiful selfie of ash smeared in the sign of a cross on her forehead on February 17. Smith participated in the Christian tradition of Ash Wednesday, where the ash represents repentance and officially signifies the start of Lent. Christians are not expected to keep the ash on for the entire day but Jada made sure to snap a selfie before removing the religious symbol.

Ash is often mixed with oil for an easier forehead-crossing experience. It appears that was the case for Jada. She alluded to the fact that she felt refreshed and spiritually cleansed in the caption of her post.
“Sun kissed … within and without ✨?✨?,” she wrote alongside her ash pic.
Her Christian followers instantly knew what the situation was but several fans got nervous and thought she was getting something implanted in her forehead, like Lil Uzi Vert.
“LIL JADA VERT,” one follower jokingly commented, while another said, “Must’ve been around Lil Uzi Vision.”
Other fans were forced to do a double-take and thought that Jada was actually following in the rapper’s footsteps. “Hope no diamonds implant ?,” a third fan wrote. A fourth said, “I thought you had a diamond in your head like Lil Uzi ?.”
It was all in good fun but Jada seriously does not age!
Uzi’s recent implant made headlines earlier this week when he admitted that he originally bought the $24 million diamond for a ring but was afraid that he would lose it. He appeared on an Instagram Live with Fat Joe to explain his obscure decision.
“I’m Lil Uzi. I’m turnt up. So $24million on a ring is the stupidest idea because I’m gonna look down and that ring ain’t gon’ be there … I know me,” Uzi said. “I wake up in odd places and different sceneries.”
