“Stop Making Up Headlines”: Jada Pinkett Smith Makes It Clear ‘Will & I Never Had An Issue In The Bedroom’

Open up and say aah! Jada Pinkett-Smith is serving information about her and husband, Will Smith’s private life. At least, that’s what many feel as they listened to her latest Red Table Talk conversation with Gwyneth Paltrow. Relationships are hard. Marriages are harder. With Jada Pinkett-Smith meeting Will Smith at the age of 22-years-old and marrying him three years later, she knows firsthand how tough marriage can be. Especially when under the constant scrutiny of the public eye.

“It’s hard,” the Matrix Resurrections actress shared with Gwyneth Paltrow. “The thing Will and I talk about a lot is the journey.” As it pertains to attempting to achieve and maintain a healthy intimate life in marriage, Pinkett-Smith says that certain expectations can contribute to a “huge pitfall.” “That’s why the accountability part really hit for me because I think you expect your partner to know [what you need], especially when it comes to [intimacy]. It’s like, ‘Well if you love me, you should know. If you love me, you should read my mind.'”

A sentiment that both actresses shared is when these expectations tend not to be met, they can leave a partner feeling “crushed.” But in order to maintain a healthy sex life within a marriage (or relationship), each person must prioritize open and honest communication. Without this, struggles within the relationship will remain at the forefront. “It’s uncomfortable, but it’s deeply healthy,” Jada Pinkett-Smith added.

The conversation spilled on to social media, causing many to criticize the actress for seemingly disparaging her husband’s bedroom game. Some called for Jada Pinkett-Smith to “leave us alone” with the private information, calling it “oversharing”, while others questioned why she would choose to admit that. However, what seemed to be the general social media consensus you ask? “I bet she didn’t have this same issue with August.” Yikes. Once again, the infamous “Entanglement” debacle resurfaced amid Jada Pinkett-Smith’s revelation. If you recall, Pinkett-Smith’s extramarital “friendship” with R&B singer August Alsina took a grip on headlines in 2020, causing the couple to bring themselves to the Red Table.

Countless memes were birthed from the scandal at Will Smith’s expense. Another occurrence that many fans would highlight was Jada Pinkett-Smith’s recollection of her not-so-secret “special love” for Tupac Shakur. Will Smith opened up about his insecurities that stemmed from the “image of perfection” that surrounded Tupac within his wife in a 2020 interview with The Breakfast Club, saying that it made him “jealous” at one point.

In the spirit of sharing, Will Smith also recently revealed in a GQ cover story that he once fantasized about having a “harem” of girlfriends at his behest. This group would also include the likes of Halle Berry and Misty Copeland if he had his way. “I don’t know where I saw it or some [stuff] as a teenager,” he stated, “but the idea of traveling with 20 women that I loved and took care of and all of that, it seemed like a really great idea.” Smith later expressed that it was a “horrific” idea that would leave the actor ultimately miserable.

With all the chatter surrounding Jada Pinkett-Smith’s comments, she took to Twitter to clarify one thing. “Only because I got time today,” she began, “Will and I have NEVER had an issue in the bedroom. Thank you.”
