She is part of one of Hollywood's most successful families with husband Will Smith, and now children Willow and Jaden all becoming bona fide movie stars.

But there are many more strings to Jada Pinkett Smith's bow, as she proved on Thursday when she took to the ocean on her surfboard. The 41-year-old actress proved she is a dab hand at one of Hawaii's more popular activities as she balanced perfectly on the waves. And the star put her daughter Willow, 12 in the shade with her impressive skills. Willow was spotted paddling on her surfboard alongside her mother, who beat her daughter to shore on the Hawaiian island of Maui where the family are holidaying. Equally impressive was the star's perfectly toned figure which she showed off in a black cropped wetsuit. Jada's ability to balance on the board showed her excellent level of fitness with tightly toned arms and legs. However, she ended up toppling over a few times, gracefully ending up in the warm water, before taking the chance to paddle along and soak up the sun. The Smith family, including actor Will, 44, spent Thanksgiving on the tropical island and have been spotted getting surf lessons.

Marvel releases new Iron Man 3 images

After months of sneak peeks and teasers Marvel have finally released official stills of Iron Man 3. The metal superhero will be flying back onto the big screen in April 2013 and things are set to get dramatic. Judging by the photographs, Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr will face the toughest fight of his life so far. After Tony Stark's private life is taken on and destroyed by a new evil, his technology empire is left in ruins. One still shows someone who is believed to be Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts holding a scratched and broken Iron Man mask. In another official photograph fans see a clear close up view of USAF Colonel James 'Rhodey' Rhodes in the Iron Patriot armor. The blue, red and silver costume is very similar in appearance to the outfit that fellow Marvel hero Captain America wears.

Downey Jr recently spoke about how excited he was to be working on the latest entry of the series, and said he will return if they keep making good sequels. He said: "I know things are looking like that they could go on for a long while."

"As usual in my book, it's all about quality control and delivering a product that you can have this kind of [positive] reaction to. If they keep doing that, maybe I'll keep showing up."
