Most people would like to think they’ll be happy on their wedding day. Well, apart from when you walk down the aisle and you realize about 15 cousins you hate actually came and are going to be mooching off the open bar, but that’s a different conversation. Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith sure are spending a lot of time blabbing about their marriage these days, and let’s just hope they’re both secure and have a good therapist on speed dial – cuz it ain’t always good stuff! It wasn’t that long ago that Jada said they weren’t swingers (sure, Jan), which was a pretty longstanding Hollywood rumor.
Most people still figured those two boned a lot, but it soundns like they’ve been dogged with tough times from the very beginning. Jada may have cried 45 days straight during a stretch of their marriage, but the waterworks were even happening on day one. Jada says her mom forced her to marry Will in the first place, and she responded by boo hooing her way to the alter.
On her Facebook series Red Table Talk, which she hosts alongside her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, things got a tad awkward because she said she was crying the day of her wedding. Jada didn’t blame her hormones from already being pregnant with son Jaden; she blamed Adrienne:
“It was almost as if [my mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones] was like, ‘You have to get married.’ I was under so much pressure being a young actress. Being young, pregnant … I just didn’t know what to do. But I knew I never wanted to be married.”
Jada did admit her first trimester with Jaden had been terrible and being forced into a wedding when she probably just wanted to wear sweatpants and watch Mad About You (I mean, what else did anyone do in 1997?) sent her into a crying fit. Adrienne basically said it wasn’t good for her either since Jada “didn’t cooperate with anything” at the wedding and was “very unpleasant.” I mean, that’s about 90% of the people I see on Say Yes To The Dress, so don’t get too pissy, Adrienne! She ended up apologizing to Jada:
“I’m sorry that I didn’t respect your wishes. It was totally selfish. It was, ‘I’ll never have that experience of my daughter getting married,’ because you were my only child.”
Adrienne, I wouldn’t even apologize because that doesn’t sound like fucked up behavior. It just sounds like typical mother of the bride shit. What IS kinda wacky is Jada’s magical vagina! Jada also felt the need to say she immediately knew when she was pregnant with Jaden, and that was right about when Will rolled off her post-boning 20 years ago. Somewhere out there, Gwyneth Paltrow is muttering to herself, “Well, my steamed vagina knows when I’m pregnant, can tell me the 10-day weather forecast, AND stream Netflix. It’s the Alexa of vaginas!”
