Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have been rumored to be in an open marriage before — and Jada fueled those rumors further in a new interview with Howard Stern, when she said about Will, ‘I’m not his watcher.’ Find out what else she said!
Marriage is complicated. Just ask Jada Pinkett Smith, 43! While opening up about her 17-year-long marriage to Will Smith, 46, in a new interview with Howard Stern on Sirius XM on June 3, the Gotham star played right into those rumors about her open marriage with Will. You just have to see what she said!
Howard brought up something Jada said to Oprah Winfrey before, about if Will wanted to be with another woman he could “as long as he could look at himself in the mirror.” Many fans began to assume that Jada had confessed to having an open marriage with Will then. Jada told Howard about her marriage, “Look, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher. I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.”
While this might further fans speculation of Jada having an open marriage, at the end of the day, Jada trusts Will! “Here’s the deal, Howard. You’ve gotta trust who you’re with,” Jada said. “Here’s what I trust: The man that Will is… is a man of integrity. He’s got all the freedom in the world. As long as Will can look himself the mirror and be okay? I’m good.”
Trust is the key factor in any relationship, and it’s good to know that, open marriage or not, Jada trusts Will. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t think she got married “too young” at age 25 in 1997. In fact, when asked if she’d advise her kids against getting married, she said, “Heck yeah, don’t do it.” Luckily, she acknowledges that Will is a “gangster partner.”
HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY caught up with Will at the premiere of his film Focus, and he revealed that it’s a “struggle” in their marriage when one person is in “work mode” and the other is in “chill mode”
“You will realize that you are committed in having a relationship, or you are really committed to work and at some point one or the other will have to suffer,” he said. Well, it appears that Will and Jada are going very strong!
