In her interview with Today, Jada Pinkett-Smith opened up about the reasoning behind her longstanding separation from Will Smith. “By the time we got to 2016, we were just exhausted with trying,” said “The Matrix Revolutions” actor. “I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be.”
Despite their decision to live what Pinkett-Smith referred to as “completely separate lives,” the actor explained that she and her husband haven’t been interested in a formal divorce. “We love our family. And we love each other. It’s more of a life partnership,” she explained, adding that she was committed to being by his side in his old age.
As for why the Hollywood duo put on a happy appearance, Pinkett-Smith explained that they have been continually trying to figure things out and weren’t ready to go public with the news. While the celebs have finally revealed the truth about their separation, they don’t seem to be planning for a divorce anytime soon.
