Jada Pinkett-Smith Explains Her Arrangement With Will [AUDIO]
There have been rumors for years that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith had an open marriage, but the couple have attempted to shut down the reports. Jada, 44, fueled the speculation during her interview with Howard Stern.
Jada refers to their 18-year marriage as a "grown relationship" and stated she is "not his watcher."
Pinkett Smith appeared on Howard's SiriusXM show when the subject of her open marriage was brought up by the shock jock.
Stern discussed an old quote Smith made in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, where she told the talk show maven that her husband could go with another woman if he could "look at himself in the mirror."
Her statements made most fans assume the Hollywood couple had an open marriage.
Jada told Howard of her marriage, “Look, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher. I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.”
Jada may have raised eyebrows with her comments, but she said at the end of the day that she trusts her husband. Pinkett Smith said, "Here's the deal, Howard. You’ve gotta trust who you’re with. Here’s what I trust: The man that Will is… is a man of integrity. He’s got all the freedom in the world. As long as Will can look himself the mirror and be okay? I’m good.”
Howard then interrupted the "Gotham" actress stating he would never risk losing a woman like her. Jada replied, "I don't think Will would either."
Stern commented that is must be difficult when Pinkett Smith reads the covers of tabloid magazines showing Will Smith with different women.
Jada stated, "I'm not the kind of woman that believes a man is not going to be attracted to other women. I'm just not that girl. It's just not realistic. And just because your man is attracted to another woman, does not mean he doesn't love you. That's not what it means. And it doesn't mean he's going to act on it. If your man can't really see another woman's beauty, how the hell is he going to see yours?"
Well, it certainly sounds like an open marriage to us. What do you guys think?
