Jada Pinkett Smith loves her some Fresh Prince.
While talking to Sirius XM host Howard Stern about her marriage to famed actor Will Smith, Jada kept things all the way real (as usual). The loving mom to Willow and Jaden Smith dished on getting married too young, not watching her man, and men inevitably being attracted to more than one woman.
Check out some highlights via US Weekly:
On whether or not she got married too young:
“Heck yeah! No, don’t do it,” she said of what she tells her kids of marrying at a certain age. “It did work out, but let me tell you: It worked out in a way that thank God I had a husband who’s a gangster partner. Taking that road from 25 to 44.”
We have traveled and you’ve gotta be strong. It takes work — you know that!” she said to Stern. “Here’s the deal, Howard. You’ve gotta trust who you’re with. And at the end of the day, right, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher. I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.”
“Here’s what I trust: The man that Will is… is a man of integrity. He’s got all the freedom in the world,” she dished. “As long as Will can look himself the mirror and be okay? I’m good.”
“I’m gonna know anyway,” she continued, saying not all Hollywood couples were on the same page. “It can sometimes [suck] if you’re not clear about where your man is.”
“When you can look in your man’s eyes and know that he’s holding you down and that he loves you,” she dished. “Here’s what’s real: I’m not the kind of woman that believes a man is not going to be attracted to another woman. “Just because a man is attracted to another woman does not mean that he does not love you,” she noted candidly. “And it doesn’t mean that he’s going to act on it.” She very rationally added: “If your man isn’t going to see another woman’s beauty, how the heck is he going to see yours?”
Over the years, Jada has been accused of letting Will roam free in what the public has deemed an open relationship, based on her remarks that her husband can do whatever he wants.
It’s become very obvious that what Jada means is, a man can quite literally do whatever he wants as a free human being – but won’t if he loves you and has integrity. Leave your thoughts below.
