Will Smith doesn’t have to worry about his on-screen love scenes upsetting his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. In a revealing interview with Extra TV, the "Gotham" star revealed that she finds her husband’s streamy sequences, like the ones he shares with his “Focus" co-star Margot Robbie, a turn on.
“No, you know after 20 years… I actually, you know,” Pinkett said at the Los Angeles premiere of “Focus” Tuesday when asked if Smith’s scenes with Robbie created “problems” in their marriage. “She’s a little freaky like that,” Smith added of his wife’s enjoyment for watching his romantic interactions on-screen.
“Unfortunately he’s right,” Pinkett admitted. “You know, it’s kind of a nice voyeuristic kind of way to see your man, but I am kind of weird in that way. That’s a whole other conversation.”
While Pinkett, 43, said she isn’t bothered by Smith’s love scenes, his feelings about her part in the upcoming stripper comedy “Magic Mike XXL” is a different story.
“The difference is everybody was naked in Jada’s movie,” Smith, 46, said with a laugh. “It’s just overkill. It’s like somebody need to put some drawers on… And now so many famous people in 'Magic Mike 2,' so everywhere I go there is some man there who has been in his drawers with my wife.”
When the couple isn't busy romancing their co-stars at work, behind-the-scenes, Pinkett said she and Will embrace change in order to keep the spark alive in their marriage of nearly two-decades. “You have to be willing to keep things fresh. We love growing together and we love doing a lot of things together and friendship," she said.
“Growing together is a big, important part,” Smith added.
Despite long-standing rumors of trouble in their marriage — and more recently, accusations that Smith had stepped out with 24-year-old Robbie — Smith said working in the entertainment business has only helped their love grow.
“There’s always something new. Part of being in Hollywood could be looked on a difficulty, but for us, there’s a new project all the time. There’s new people coming in and out of our lives. We go to a city and move there for a few months,” Smith said. “There’s a lot of moving around and it never gets a chance to get static and stale."
