On ‘After Earth’:

“That was the most painful failure in my career.”

It was a far fall from the throne for the Fresh Prince. Smith wasn’t so much worried for himself (he’s recovered before from worse movies) as he was for his son, Jaden Smith, who co-starred in the post-apocalyptic sci-fi that wasn’t well received.

“‘Wild Wild West’ was less painful than ‘After Earth’ because my son was involved in ‘After Earth,’ and I led him into it. That was excruciating.”

On his 18-year marriage to Jada:

He told The Sun newspaper: ”Whatever you have is gonna die and you are gonna have to rebirth something new. You have to be willing to ride the waves. ”There’s gonna be some flat days and some stormy days, and that has to be OK.”

Jada agreed and even revealed that with the wisdom they gained from being together from so long they learned that they were able to do without conventional wisdom saying Smith is more than just a husband to her.

She explained: ”We used to have all these rules, [but] as you go on in your relationship, you just get into a flow. ”Will, to me, encompasses everything. It’s almost as if calling him ‘my husband’ is too small of a word for what he means in my life… I think I had a very stuck idea of what a husband looks like, what a wife should be.

”Once I broke all of that, a whole new world opened for me and man, oh, man, I got to see him in all his glory. And so that’s what it’s evolved into. And I’m just ecstatic about it.”

This isn’t the first time the couple has had to defend their marriage from rumors. In 2013, Jada responded to rumors about her and Will having an open relationship:

“Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so,” she clarified. “This does NOT mean we have an open relationship…this means we have a GROWN one.”
