As part of the promotion of her new autobiography ‘Worthy’, actress Jada Pinkett gave an interview to People, where she revealed some intimate and unknown details about her life and her marriage in Hollywood. star, Will Smith.
In the interview, Pinkett recounts how they met and how, over time, Will became a kind of drug for her because of the emotional trust that developed throughout their relationship.
On the way to stardom, Jada met a young and attractive actor, Will, and after meeting several times, they started dating.
Jada said that after the actor separated from his first wife, he called her and asked her if she had a date, to which she replied no, and then he told her, “Well, now you come with me.”
Moreover, he reported that “you will call me one day and say, ‘Mark me when you come to Los Angeles.’ And I said, ‘Wow. Come on’. And when I got to Los Angeles, I called him, and since then I haven’t been able to get rid of him.”
However, the actress revealed that once they started dating and their relationship became formal, there was no going back and that, while she was managing her marriage, she also had to deal with her mental health and suicidal thoughts.
“When I met Will, I completely gave up on my mental health. I was so intoxicated by him and our dynamic. I really felt healed. “He became a drug, he declared.
After that, Jada confessed that her relationship with the Hollywood star was not what everyone believed, and the truth is that they separated for seven years before the 2022 Oscars, an award ceremony where Will famously slapped the comedian Chris Rock.
“We work together a lot. We just love each other, and we’ll figure out what that is for us. “We’re still thinking about it,he explained.
Regarding Will’s incident with Chris at the Oscars, the actress explained that at first she thought it was staged because, for her, there was nothing her husband could do.
“I thought, ‘This is a game. There was no way Will was going to hit him.’ It wasn’t until Will started walking back to his seat that I realized this wasn’t a parody, and the first words I said to him when he came back were, ‘Are you okay? he commented.
Regarding the consequences of hitting the comedian and how it affected the ‘Siete almas’ interpreter, Jada explained that what she will do is “I’m on his side, but I’m also going to let him figure it out on his own.”
Before Jada Pinkett’s statements and what happened at the 2022 Oscars, the couple was known as one of the most powerful couples in Hollywood.
The two stars got married in December 1997, a wedding that made headlines around the world because the bride arrived at the altar pregnant with her first child, Jaden.
The long life and obvious love of the couple envied everyone; however, it changed after the statements made by Jada in 2018, when she declared that she did not want to marry the actor.
However, that’s not the only thing that calls the stability of their marriage into question, because later, specifically in 2020, the rumors surrounding the couple that they have an open relationship will be known to be true.
This is after it was revealed that the famous couple separated for the first time since their marriage in 1997 because of an affair, Jada, in which the actors spoke very clearly, saying that the two maintain a consensual relationship with others.
After that, they tried to stay separate, but according to the actress, “they realized it was impossible.”
In 2021, Will published his memoirs, in which he described his marriage to Jada and stated, “We suffered the violent death of our romantic fantasies, the burning of the idealistic illusion of the perfect marriage and the perfect family. Neither of us wanted a divorce. We knew we loved each other, and some aspects of our union are wonderful. But the structure of life we’ve built is suffocating us both.”
In her autobiographical book ‘Worthy’, which will be released on October 17, the actress explains other details of her life, such as her relationship with her children, her road to fame, and the suicidal thoughts she had inside for a time.
