Posted On : August 17, 2016

In a recent interview with ‘The Sun,’ Will Smith, kept it real with his fans and detailed a time when he and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s marriage was severely tested and almost reached a breaking point.

"I threatened to leave him once, and the next day he said to me, 'Well, if you ever decide to go and marry somebody else, just tell him to make a space for me, because I’m coming with you.' Ossie always had something funny to say about everything. I learned that if I stuck to my guns, when I was right he’d come back to me sometimes and improve on my argument to him. We had no unusual salvation from the problems of other couples—WE FOUGHT ABOUT FAMILY, MONEY, RUINED BUSINESS, INFIDELITY. WE HAD TERRIBLE FIGHTS. But there was never anything that happened, no matter how incredible it might seem, that we didn’t forgive each other for or agree to let go. Ossie and I both finally understood that there wasn’t any reason we could come up with to ever leave each other."
"As we got older, we talked about everything. There was nothing we couldn’t tell each other, nothing too private for us to share." -Ruby Dee
