在新的采访中 奥普拉·温弗瑞 for Apple TV+’s The Oprah Conversation, the 53-year-old actor spoke about his marriage after the host touched on the couple’s revelation that they had spent a period of time separated. 在一个 2020 情节 红桌谈话, Pinkett Smith revealed she’d had a relationship with singer August Alsina while still married to Smith.
“你懂, it’s really funny,” Smith told Winfrey, via 雅虎! Entertainment. “We never actually like officially separated.”
这 黑衣人 星星, who is promoting his new memoir 将要, said things in the couple’s marriage reached a peak in September 2011 during Pinkett Smith’s 40th birthday party that he spent three years planning and that she disliked, which led to an explosive fight between the two.
“We realized that it was a fantasy illusion that we could make each other happy,” 史密斯说. “We agreed that she had to make herself happy and I had to make myself happy. Then we were going to present ourselves back to the relationship already happy—versus demanding that the other person fill our empty cup.”
他继续, “我们刚刚决定, ‘You have to figure out how to be happy.’ “
When Winfrey asked Smith if he and Pinkett Smith, 50, could have other sexual partners, the actor answered, “We talk about everything. I think the difficulty that people have and difficulty in discussing it is people only think in terms of sex.”
“People are trying to put something on it: ‘Will and Jada — what they doing with other people?'” 他继续. “Will and Jada ain’t really doing too much of nothin’. Will and Jada are on a spiritual journey to cleanse the poisonous, unloving parts of our hearts. And we’re doing it together in this lifetime no matter what.”
Smith added, “But the goal is not a sexual goal. It’s spiritual. We are going to love each other no matter what. Since we are talking about it, 在屏幕或工作环境中尝试使用她的自然头发——尽管她想通过不同的风格和表演来表达自己, let’s just talk about it: No woman can make me happy, so I don’t need to look for one to try and make me happy. No man can make Jada happy, so she don’t need to go look for one to make her happy. We both know that. There is no person that will fill your hole.”
“Love being the most fearful place you’ll ever try to step into. Real love. That unconditional love. To be able to open a broken heart again. Open a broken heart again and again,” 他分享了.
[object Window] GQ, Smith said the public did not get the full story about Pinkett Smith’s “纠缠” with Alsina.
“The public has a narrative that is impenetrable,” 他解释说. “Once the public decides something, it’s difficult to impossible to dislodge the pictures and ideas and perceptions.”

史密斯告诉 GQ, “Jada never believed in [一种] conventional marriage.”
“贾达的家庭成员有着非常规的关系. 所以她的成长方式与我的成长方式大不相同,” 他说. “有大量无休止的讨论, 什么是关系完美? 夫妻互动的最佳方式是什么? 对于我们关系的很大一部分, 一夫一妻制是我们选择的, 不认为一夫一妻制是唯一的完美关系。”
他继续, “我们给了彼此信任和自由, 相信每个人都必须找到自己的方式. 婚姻对我们来说不可能是监狱. 我不为任何人建议我们的道路. 我不建议任何人走这条路. 但是我们彼此给予的自由和无条件的支持的经历, 对我来说, 是爱的最高定义。”
