Other celebrities including Eva Longoria, Kourtney Kardashian and Nicola Peltz have also shared heartfelt messages after the horrific attack.

Jada, who hosts the Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk, recently opened up on the show about her childhood.

Talking to her daughter Willow Smith and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, the mother-of-two referenced her seemingly "strong" exterior.

The 50-year-old said: "I had to, like, deal with a lot of stressful adult things at a young age.

"I didn't have the ability to deal with the emotions that were coming with it. I just had to buck up."

As she fought to hold back tears, Willow comforted her by saying: "Oh, mommy. This is why we do the work."

The mother-daughter duo have previously discussed Jada's struggle to understand Willow's anxiety.

"I had a really difficult time relating, because - two things - her lifestyle and how she was brought up very different than mine - I don't know what it's like to be a child under hot lights.

"And then just, really not knowing how to comfort her, not knowing what help she needed, not understanding the behaviour."

Jada then said: "It was very difficult, even to this day, in just being there for her in the way that she needs."
