Jada Pinkett Smith reveals Oscars slap made her relationship with Will ‘deeper than romance’
The pair had secretly separated six years prior to the incident, with Jada, 52, confessing: ‘I’m not thinking in a million years he’s getting up on stage and it has anything to do with me!’
Speaking to Red magazine, she added: ‘That’s when your relationship gets deeper than romance or all the c**p that comes with marriage.
‘I was just really concerned about Will. And I realised in that moment that, as challenging as our relationship can be, I’m always going to be by his side, no matter what.’
At the 94th Academy Awards, Will strode onto the stage and slapped Chris after the comedian cracked a joke about Jada looking like ‘G.I. Jane’ because of her bald head when she had recently revealed that was suffering from alopecia.
While she and Will were living separately at the time, Jada explained that they’ve always had each other’s backs, more so now that they’re apart.
While Jada has been open about the complexities of their marriage, she revealed that she prefers not to use ‘conventional’ relationship titles to describe their union.
She explained: ‘I try to stay away from conventional terms like “marriage” because people have a very specific idea of it and I’m not in the business of trying to change that.
‘I like spending time with me and I like spending time with my family and that’s it. I have no desire to do anything else but that.’
She continued: ‘At the end of the day, that was my family. That doesn’t fit into what makes a powerful, independent woman? Leave a woman to decide for herself what is important to her.
‘It’s a lot of personal reconciling that helps us get that balance – recognising that we’re not here to be everything to everybody, and that’s okay.’
Despite her best efforts though, Jada revealed she feels misunderstood and that’s why she felt compelled to write her memoir, Worthy.
