Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are considered to be one of the most powerful couples in Hollywood. The couple recently celebrated Jada’s 51st birthday on the 18th of September. The I am Legend hero has had a career spanning three decades. While Jada is also an actress and starred in movies like The Nutty Professor, Scream 2, and The Matrix series, etc. Interestingly, the couple met each other during the shoot of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air when Jada went to audition for a role. The two got married in 1997 and have been inseparable since.
The Smith family operates as an absolute unit, especially since Will printed his palm across Chris Rock’s face at the Oscars when the award event host made fun of Jada’s bald head. The Men in Black actors apparently defended his wife’s honor by saying, “keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth,” to Chris. Despite the hate Will got for his actions, he and Jada have stood by each other’s side. The two have talked about their marriage publicly for more than two decades now. While there are problems like any marital life does, the two continue to vow a life together.
Jada had one condition for her marriage with Will Smith
When it comes to the Smith couple, their marital problems only seem to make them come out stronger. According to a source, The Collateral actress said that there is nothing Will could do that would make her abandon or not love him. But that unconditional love did come with one exception.
As long as Will does not do anything bad to the kids, the couple is good for life. The two have three grown-up children together. A Man Named Scott actor Trey (29), Jaden (24), who famously starred in Karate Kid in 2010, and I am Legend actress and singer Willow (21).
Will and Jada’s marriage is one of the longest ones around, compared to Hollywood industry standards, where couples separate as a result of affairs, individual growth, and busy schedules. Jada Smith created a storm when the Red Table Talk Show host openly discussed her ‘entanglement’ with August Alsina. This was during the couple’s time off from each other. But amid all that chaos, Jada and Will came back together, and the rest in history.
