Jada Pinkett-Smith Shares Story on How Daughter Willow Stopped an Actress from Flirting with Will
Jada Pinkett-Smith's Facebook Watch Series "Red Table Talk" always has the most controversial topics, and the most recent one did not disappoint. Jada opened up about the time her daughter Willow Smith stopped an actress from flirting with her father.
In the episode, she shares how she's dealt with female fans trying to flirt with her husband, and how she's reacted. While she usually keeps her cool, there were a few times when she just had enough.
"There was only one or two times where I might have gotten a little hostile where I felt like people, they stepped over a boundary and they were disrespectful. I know who I am. And, more importantly, he knows who I am."
Having each other's backs
While Jada and Will might be one of the most secure couples in Hollywood, she says that she gets by with a little help from her daughter, Willow, who would usually issue a warning to those who try to come close to her father whenever she feels like there's trouble brewing.
"I remember when Willow was five or six and one of his co-stars was in his trailer. She jumped in her father's lap and she looked at the co-star and said, 'My mother's gonna be here very soon'... And I remember Will telling me the story — I cracked up!"
A common problem?
It's not just Jada Pinkett-Smith who feels iffy about women surrounding her husband all the time, as her guest star, Ayesha Curry, revealed that she hates it as well when her NBA superstar husband Stephen Curry gets surrounded by a lot of women.
According to Ayesha, her husband is very talkative and friendly, so speaking to other people is not a problem for him. However, when she starts feeling as if it's time to cut the conversation short, she usually introduces herself.
"Stephen is very nice by nature and he's very talkative. Everything is always very friendly and sometimes to the point where I'm like, I'm a grown woman so I'll just insert myself. I'll be like, 'Hello. How are you doing?'"
While she used to be uncomfortable with this, the celebrity chef acknowledges that a lot of women will really be surrounding her husband as he is a world-famous basketball player.
"The ladies will always be lurking, hoping for their moment and waiting, but for me, I honestly hate it."
It seems no wife is comfortable with their husbands speaking to a lot of women on a daily basis, and it's something that a lot of celebrity wives have to deal with. However, at the end of the day, Jada and Ayesha agree that it's their loyalty and faithfulness to one another that is important.
