HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Jada Pinkett Smith is not bothered by the 8 to 10 pounds she has reportedly gained, but the 42-year-old star is worried that she might not fit into the dress she got for the Academy Awards on Sunday.

Smith took to Facebook Monday to share a picture in which she shows off her "fuller" figure in an all-black leather ensemble.

"My girlfriend sent me this pic, and I could clearly see the weight I’ve gained which is about … 8-10 pounds," Will Smith's wife wrote alongside the post. "I think I will keep it. I like being a lil…fuller;) Let's just hope it will fit in The Oscars dress."

The Hawthorne star also used her post to encourage women to feel comfortable in their own skin.

"Here's to loving our bodies by our own standards:)" she added in the caption.

The 86th Academy Awards will take place on Sunday March, 2, and will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
