Smith was asked about speculations and “all the chatter” about their long-term relationship in a recently televised interview with Gayle King, and the newly announced BAFTA award recipient responded:
“I have decided that chatter about my life can be of a benefit to people,” Smith said around the 7:18 mark. “I think the chatter is the first stage to having a real conversation and being able to truly explore if some of the things in your heart are loving or poisonous.”
After which, King asked about “infidelity in the marriage,” to which Smith stated:
“There’s never been infidelity in our marriage,” he said. “Never. Jada and I talk about everything and we have never surprised one another with anything, ever.”
Other topics discussed in the new interview include how his father helped him forgive himself, his Oscar-nominated performance as King Richard, and more. Smith was then asked at the end of the interview what he has left to accomplish in his career.
Smith stated in response, “Life has gotten really, really simple for me right now. I think I’m a better actor than I’ve ever been. And I think I’m gonna, you know, these next 10 years of my career will be the top of my acting performances. But I also feel like I can help people. There’s a teacher inside of me that’s trying to get out. I’ve learned how to be happy here and I’ve learned how to create love here. And I want to share.”
This comes after Will addressed the topic while speaking with GQ, where he explained their relationship saying:
“We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way,” he said. “And marriage for us can’t be a prison. And I don’t suggest our road for anybody. I don’t suggest this road for anybody. But the experiences that the freedoms that we’ve given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love.”
