Jada Pinkett Smith thinks she was “too damn young” when she married Will Smith.
The 43-year-old actress, who tied the knot with the ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ star in 1997 at the age of 25, admits she would urge their children, Jaden, 16, and Willow, 14, not to settle down so early in life.
Asked if she would tell them to do things differently, the ‘Magic Mike XXL’ star said: “Heck yeah, don’t do it. It did work out, but it worked out in a way that thank God I have a husband who is just a gangster partner because can you imagine taking that road together from 25 to 44? Woo! We have travelled. You’ve got to be strong. It takes work.”
The ‘Gotham’ star, who previously hinted she had an open marriage, says she and Will, 46, have never been unfaithful to each other.
She also told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show: “You gotta trust who you’re with, and at the end of the day, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher. I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man. I trust that the man that Will is is a man of integrity. He’s got all the freedom in the world, and as long as Will can look at himself in the mirror and be OK, I’m good.
“I’m not the kind of woman that believes a man isn’t going to be attracted to other women. And just because your man is attracted to another woman doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you and doesn’t mean he is going to act on it. If your man can’t really see another woman’s beauty how the hell is he going to see yours?”
