Washington, Nov 3 : Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith plans to follow in the footsteps of Pamela Anderson with a new career as an animal rights activist, when she gets older.
The 37-year-old star, who's married to superstar Will Smith, is a hardcore animal lover and owns a menagerie of pets, including three cats and two dogs.
She has also bought a red-tail boa constrictor, and named it 'Beauty'.
However, after buying Beauty, Pinkett Smith admits she's become much more aware of the plight of caged animals.
"I think I'll never get an animal like a snake again where I have to keep her in an aquarium," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"We have this whole thing for Beauty outside for her, to be in a natural habitat. But at the end of the day, she knows she's caged into her aquarium.
"We can't set her into the wild now, but I told (daughter) Willow we won't do this again and won't have any animals that need to stay like that.
"Maybe when I get older, that'll become one of my activist endeavours," she added.
