Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have had marriage counselling
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have had marriage counseling.
The ‘Suicide Squad’ star has revealed he and the ‘Magic Mike XXL’ actress have sorted out their marriage problems by attending sessions together where the focus was on getting the truth out.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I’ve done a lot of marriage counseling. What happens in a marriage once you do counseling, the truth comes out. And you sit across from your wife and you’ve said all of your truth and she has said all of her truth. You look at each other and you can’t imagine you could ever possibly love each other again now the truth is out.
"It creates a dark moment. But for me it’s the dark before the dawn. When the truth comes out and people have to say who they are and what they think, you get to know who they are. I think that’s the cleansing before you get to the other side that is understanding and moving forward in our relationship."
Meanwhile, Will recently gushed that his wife of 19 years – with whom he has Jaden, 18, and Willow, 15 – is "magical".
He said: "Jada is magical. Part of why I love her is things happen in a way they shouldn’t happen, they shouldn’t go that way. She has this magical power …
"I’m not gonna be silly. I’m here to honor you. Just watching the piece with the kids it just takes me back to when we made them. Can’t help but think about that. It’s just amazing. It’s like you take Jada Pinkett Smith and an obscure town in Mexico and some tequila and you end up with great kids!"
