Will Smith opened up to Jimmy Kimmel on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and revealed that he rarely watches his wife's show "Red Table Talk."

It's not that he doesn't support the show, he explained, it's just that some of the sensitive subjects are more than he can handle.

"It's actually fantastic, the episodes I could bear. And they sit down, and it's really wide open, raw conversation across the generations about a cornucopia of topics." Will Smith

"RED TABLE TALK" WITH NO TABOOS

The hit Facebook show is hosted by Jada Pinkett-Smith, Willow Smith, and Jada's mom, Adrienne Banfield-Jones and often explores delicate topics that leave the actor squirming.

The award-winning show is unique in presenting the opinions of three generations in one forum.

OPENING UP ABOUT PERSONAL ISSUES

Jada sometimes even discusses issues in her marriage to Smith - and the actor was a guest on his own wife's show in October 2018. Smith openly discussed a period of time when he admitted he was "failing miserably" as a husband.

OPENING UP AVENUES OF COMMUNICATION

For Smith, the great value of "Red Table Talk" is that it is a show that breaks down the barriers between generations, and opens up avenues of communication between parents and children - and grandchildren - on subjects once regarded as taboo.

WILL SMITH - PROUD FATHER AND HUSBAND

Smith is clearly proud of his family's achievement, just as they are of his.

The actor and his family recently attended the premiere of his most recent film, "Aladdin", in which he recreates the role of the Genie, so superbly portrayed by the late Robin Williams.

The premiere of "Aladdin" in Los Angeles on May 22, 2019, saw an impromptu reunion of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" stars when Tatyana Ali and Alfonso Ribeiro showed up to support WIll Smith.

The occasion was a treat for fans, who have been calling for a reboot of "Fresh Prince" for years.

Alfonso Ribeiro recently hinted at the possibility of a spin-off but revealed that Will Smith's movie star status put his salary out of reach for a TV sitcom.
