Will Smith admits to 'failing miserably' in 21-year marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith
The pair have been married for 21 years.
Will Smith has spoken out about some of the lowest points in his marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith while appearing on Jada's Red Table Talk chat show with the pair’s daughter Willow.
Will and Jada were married in 1997 and while they are still considered one of Hollywood’s strongest couples, Will has now revealed that they have struggled through some tough times.
“There was a period where mommy woke up and cried for 45 days straight – I started keeping a diary,” he told daughter Willow and mother-in-la, Adrienne.
“It was every morning. I think that’s the worst I’ve ever felt in our marirage.
“I was failing miserably.”
However, since that time, Will and Jada said they’ve done a lot of work on their marriage but admitted they don’t refer to themselves as “married” anymore.
The pair now chooses to call themselves “life partners”.
Will and Jada have weathered many cheating allegations and divorce rumours over the years, and now say they are stronger than ever.
Speaking about her marriage last year, Jada told Andy Cohen on his show What Happens Live:
“Will and I just have amazing chemistry on a lot of different levels.
“We love to laugh together, we love to learn together, and we just love each other.
“I guess that’s the secret – we just really like each other!”
