It is only recently that Jada Pinkett Smith has come to the realization that she suffers from anxiety, even though she had a few tell-tale signs.

The 50-year-old said she used to bite her fingernails and chew her cuticles, but didn't connect her bad habits to anxiety until she started raising her daughter.

"I never identified it as anxiety," her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, noted in the latest episode of "Red Table Talk," which was presumably taped before the Will Smith Oscar incident.

Jada realized she has anxiety while dealing with and learning about her daughter Willow's struggles with mental health. She shared how reevaluating her and her mother's behavior and her life experiences got her to the realization that "Oh, well of course I probably have some anxiety."

"Recently, we had a talk, and she was like, 'I never knew that I actually experienced anxiety.' She was pushing it down for so many years like she had no idea," 21-year-old Willow said.

The rising rock star shared that having a conversation with Jada about her struggles made her understand and "forgive" her mother for downplaying her anxiety when she was a child.

"I had to forgive her a little bit for being like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah…I get it, but it's really not that bad,'" she explained.

But the path to forgiveness was not really easy, added Willow. "It was rough. I feel like when I was growing up, she didn't understand my anxiety. Because she, growing up, had seen her friends die … she had been through so much stuff that my issues, to her, kind of felt like … [smaller]," she told guest Ireland Baldwin.

Willow shared how her condition left her screaming, crying and shaking on the floor, which would eventually "trigger" her mother.

Jada said she recognized a "cycle of generational anxiety" while evaluating her family and their behaviors.

The latest episode of "Red Table Talk" was released on Facebook on Tuesday.
