Screen beauty Jada Pinkett Smith found getting in shape for her role in THE MATRIX RELOADED was an enjoyable experience - because she wanted to look like a soldier.

Jada, who is married to MEN IN BLACK star Will Smith, says she never stops exercising, even when she is pregnant.

She says, "I'm not one to stop working out even if I'm pregnant - yoga, whatever I need to do - so getting the body strong and fit again is not a problem.

"I was in the gym on that treadmill, I did a lot of weight training. I wanted my body to look like a soldier. I put on 15lb (6.87 kilograms) of muscle."

Jada also stars in The Matrix Revolutions, due out in cinemas in November (03).
