Actor Will Smith defended his ‘open marriage’ with wife Jada Pinkett Smith in a new interview with GQ, claiming that the set-up was ‘the highest definition of love.’
Actor Will Smith discussed his so-called “open marriage” with actress Jada Pinkett Smith in a recent interview with GQ, claiming the set-up is “the highest definition of love.”
Pinkett Smith last summer famously talked about a past affair she had while the married couple was facing a strain. Smith was by her side during the awkward public conversation concerning the “entanglement” — or, as the “I Am Legend” actor called it, his wife’s “transgressions.” While Pinkett Smith was clear-eyed, Smith’s long face during the uncomfortable conversation quickly became an internet meme.
To no surprise, it seems the idea for marital “freedom” came from Pinkett Smith.
“Jada never believed in conventional marriage,” Smith told GQ, according to Page Six. “Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up.”
Is Will Smith right that allowing his wife to sleep with other men is the ‘highest definition of love’? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
