Will Smith Shares the 'Most Poisonous Aspect' of Marriage to Jada and It's Surprisingly Relatable

Jada Pinkett Smith returned to Facebook Watch talkshow Red Talk Table this Monday, featuring husband Will Smith, to talk about the beginnings of their unique relationship.

"For years and years there's been a lot of speculation about us and our family has been pretty secretive, not secretive, just private," Will shared, "It's been private. We have created a marital and family paradigm that has been speculated about for a lot of years, so I'm excited to tell the truth."

Reflecting on the early days of their relationship, Will was quick to share his emotional reaction to meeting Jada for the first time.

"I recognize when I see a person, if our relationship can be exponential," he said. "When I saw you on 'Different World,' it was that thing. The bell rings and I knew there was something in our energy that was magic."

Overcoming turbulent times

It's no secret that the twosome focused mainly on Will's career over the years, while Jada's purpose was focused mainly on raising the couple's children, Jaden and Willow. According to Will, this is where they could have done better as a team.

"Jada's an actress, but she had two babies and she had to be home to raise her babies while I got to do everything I wanted to do. She was sacrificing herself to fit my picture, but my life wasn't really disrupted in the least," he revealed. "I think that was the, if there were an individual, most poisonous aspect of our relationship in the past, is that I felt money and winning made a good relationship."

According to Jada, it was fear that caused her to go along with Will's idea of success for so long -- "fear of not wanting to rock the boat."

"I had kids, he's a force to be reckoned with," she elaborated. "There's a lot of stuff you let slide and go past that angers you, that you get resentment, but you don't change it because you're scared. At the end of the day, it's about fear."

Jada then revealed that when she turned 40 she was ready for change and that's where Part 1 of the episode ended. Part 2 will be released next week on Facebook Watch.
