Jada Pinkett Smith has said before that her marriage with Will Smith has lasted, because she lets him do whatever he wants to do (even if that includes doing another piece) and that they’re their own people and shit. But Will told Entertainment Tonight at last night’s screening of his movie Concussion in L.A. that he and Jada have been married so long because neither of them are willing to quit no matter how awful, horrible, painful and torturous it gets. Be prepared to swoon yourself inside/out, because this is romance. Will said this after ET asked him what the key to their long marriage:
“We’ve been married 20 years and we’ve been asking ourselves that question and really at the end of the day it’s just not quitting. You can’t expect it to be easy, it’s like our marriage was the most difficult, grueling, excruciating thing that we have ever taken on in our lives. And you know we’re just not quitters.
If there is a secret I would say is that we never went into working in our relationship. We only ever worked on ourselves individually, and then presented ourselves to one another better than we were previously.”
I need to know just how excruciating and grueling it is. Is it more painful than watching After Earth on a loop while your eyelids are taped open, your body is strapped to a chair and pure caffeine is being injected into your veins to keep you awake? If it’s more painful than that, then the rumors about Will and Jada being Scientologists must be true and they’re one hundred percent dead inside. Because it doesn’t get anymore painful than that.
And here’s more of Jada and Will at last night’s screening. I can already hear JLo screaming, “THAT BITCH,” because Jada’s wearing the dress she was planning to wear to Catholic mass on Christmas Eve.
