The 50-year-old actor Will Smith had a heartfelt discussion with his better half, Jada Pinkett Smith, in which he opened up about their marriage together.


Will and Jada's more than two decades of marriage outlasted numerous Hollywood relationships since the couple tied the knot in 1997. Together they have two children: Jaden Christopher Syre Smith and Willow Camille Reign Smith.

Recently, Will joined his family's "Red Table Talk" show on Facebook, where he candidly talked to her daughter Willow about one particularly rocky patch in their marriage.

The Hollywood actor said, "There was a period where mummy woke up and cried 45 days straight. I started keeping a diary."

"It was every morning. I think that's the worst I've ever felt in our marriage. I was failing miserably," Will added.

Will then broke down in tears. At a certain point, he and Jada said that they no longer call themselves "married." The couple previously admitted that they consider themselves as "life partners."


Will and Jada met in 1994 on the set of the actor's television show "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." They started dating in 1995 and tied the knot on December 31, 1997.

Though the pair needed to address rumors throughout their decades together, they appear as if they've figured out the magic formula to keeping the spark alive.


After just about 14 years of marriage, it was reported that they were secretly separated. However, in a joint statement in August 2011, Will and Jada stated:

"Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”


In April 2013, Jada also addressed the rumor that she and Will had an open marriage.

During an interview, she said, "I think that people get that idea because Will and I are very relaxed with one another. But I've always told Will: ‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be OK.’”

In June 2013, Jada said that there is nothing Will could do to make her not love or leave him, except if he did something terrible to their children.
