Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals the Key to Her Long-Lasting Marriage, Friendship

Apparently things aren’t as bad as we may think they are between Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband Will.

Via Extra TV:

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith and husband Will Smith have had divorce rumors constantly swirling, but at FOX’s TCA this weekend, Jada made it clear to “Extra’s” Renee Bargh that they are very much together.
Pinkett Smith said the key to their relationship is friendship. “Your partner has to be your best, best, friend. And he’s my best friend.”

Jada had some sound advice on keeping your marriage strong. “You have to have kind of a warrior mentality. You have to be a solider for love. You have to be able to withstand tough times and just because the tough times come doesn’t mean it’s time to stop… it means it’s time to dig in.”

Pinkett Smith also gushed about her upcoming 20th wedding anniversary. “We’re going to be celebrating 20 years in two years, so we’re starting to plan now for a big 20th year.”

The actress is playing Fish Mooney on new FOX series “Gotham,” and said it’s a fun character to play. “She’s pretty ruthless and violent. She has quite a temper.”

“Gotham” premieres September 22.

Well here’s hoping that they really ARE happy! I can’t imagine how difficult it must be a couple in the spotlight.

Will Smith Responds To James Avery’s Death

willsmith

Last week we heard the sad news about James Avery and his death that happened due to complications from open heart surgery. James, best known as Uncle Phil, on the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” series was the voice of reason on the show that aired from 1990 to 1996. Avery played the family patriarch and a wealthy attorney and judge on the popular television comedy. And let me tell you, it was one of my favorite shows growing up. I had my VCR set every week for this one, yo!

And this show was basically THE show that launched Will Smith’s acting career.

While many of the other cast members expressed their condolences after hearing of the death of James Avery, Will Smith took some time to respond and did so via his Facebook page.

He wrote, “Some of my greatest lessons in Acting, Living and being a respectable human being came through James Avery. Every young man needs an Uncle Phil. Rest in Peace.” I think we all learned a lot from James Avery, no?

In addition, Smith posted the above photo of the last time he and Avery were together.

Avery’s death was announced on New Years eve via Twitter by Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Avery’s son Carlton.

Sandra Bullock as Miss Hannigan?

She’s turned it down already but according to reports, she’s back in the running!

Oscar winner Sandra Bullock, who is about to heat up the big screen with comedienne Melissa McCarthy in ‘The Heat’, is allegedly in talks again to play Miss Hannigan to sandraAnnie in the big screen adaption of the Broadway musical. Also attached to the Will Smith and Jay-Z produced film is another Oscar winner, Jamie Foxx.

Will Bullock be able to pull off the singing required for the movie? No one thought Reneee Zellwegger could sing either and she wowed the critics.

Let’s hope we get to find out!

WTF: Will Smith Tongue Kisses 14-year-old son Jaden on Thai TV

will-smith1

What…did he think us North Americans wouldn’t find out about these shenanigans? Oh em gee!

There’s something to be said about kissing your 14-year-old son in public on live television (come on, he’s a teenager and probably a little irritated with his own dad most of the time), but FRENCH kissing your 14-year-old son in public on LIVE television? Are you kidding me?

I am not sure what to make of this and sure I’ve heard that the Smith family is said to be a close-knit family, but french kissing just may a little too close-knit for me. Okay, it is just kind of creepy. Ok, REALLY creepy!

The father-son duo was hanging out on The Woody Show in Bangkok, Thailand to promote their film “After Earth” (which was a big flop, by the way) when host Woody Milintachinda asked Will to show him something he’s never done on television.

So what does he do? Grabs his son’s face and smooches him. All I have to say is Jaden doesn’t look thrilled and I just thought I’d let y’all know that I am really creeped out right now.

You can check out the action at about 4:50 in the video below.

Will and Jaden Smith Get Univision’s Despierta America Audience Laughing

Hollywood’s love affair with Univision’s “Despierta America” continued this week with visits from Will and Jaden Smith and “Now You See Me” star Jesse Eisenberg.

While speaking about their upcoming film “After Earth” this morning, Will Smith impressed co-host Karla Martinez with his Spanish, while Jaden went head to head with co-host Ana Patricia Gonzales in a trivia game. Earlier in the week, Jesse shared his magic tricks with Karla Martinez and got a not-so-surprising proposal from Dona Meche.

Despierta América is the fastest-growing morning show in the country, and in some markets – such as Los Angeles and Houston – it is the #1 morning show outperforming the “Today Show” and “Good Morning America.” Recent celebrity guests include Halle Berry, Mark Wahlberg, Jason Statham and Hugh Jackman.

Jaden Smith + Kylie Jenner = Justin Bieber + Selena Gomez

Move over Justin and Selena. There’s a new Hollywood couple about to steal your thunder.

(if anyone ever considered that thunder to begin with)

Jaden Smith, the son of Will Smith, is only 14 years old, but he is already a millionaire. Kylie Jenner, the youngest child in the ever-growing Kardashian dynasty, is probably a millionaire as well, so it only makes sense that these two hook up together.

The two have been linked together and reported about as possibly being more than ‘just friends’ for a while now, but finally, there has been some dents in the armor and Will and Jada’s young son is finally letting us peons know what’s really going on.

“She’s one of my best friends. It’s pretty awesome.”
Kylie is obviously following after her older sisters in chasing after men of a chocolate hue. What else did Kylie do to get her boy? Jaden tells how it went down….

“I was in L.A., we were all hanging out. Then I went to New York and she came too, and then she came to London and surprised me, so that’s pretty baller.”
Of course she crossed that pond to put her check man on lock. Mama Kris ain’t raising no fool when it comes to latching on to potential revenueJaden-Smith-Kylie-Jenner-1additional reporting: A. Neff King

Independence Day Without Will Smith

independence-day-2-logo-header

Now that there is official news that there are finally sequels in the pipeline to one of the biggest blockbusters of the 90s, Independence Day, now there is also word that the breakout star of that movie (which is now nearly twenty years old) is not going to even make so much as a cameo in the new flicks. That’s right, flicks. As in, there are two in pre-production because they are so sure they’re going to be hits.

Will Smith, who lead an ensemble cast in the original film, catapulted into Hollywood leading man status after the tentpole movie, which debuted on Independence Day weekend in 1996. Now the producer of the first movie, Roland Emmerich, has begun leaking plotlines from the upcoming sequels and there is not one mention of Smith in these films.

Why?

Emmerich claims that his movie was always intended as an ensemble movie and that in the last 15+ years, Will Smith has become too big of a star to fit into such a tale.

So who will be in the sequel? Already confirmed is Bill Pullman, who portrayed the President in the original. Who else will sign on for the sequel?

Stay tuned for updated casting news!

Will Smith Takes His Whole Fam To Men In Black III NY Premiere

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith were all smiles at the Men In Black III premiere last night at the Ziegfeld theatre in New York. They alongside their two kiddos Willow and Jaden posed for the cameras and it sure as heck didn’t look as though anything was wrong with their family life. We all know Will ain’t THAT great of an actor.

Will Smith and Jada Attend Sixers-Celtics Game

I think we can call off those ridiculous divorce rumors. Will and Jada look very happy.

After attending Game 4 of the Philadelphia 76’ers – Boston Celtics game, the seemingly happy couple traveled to Boston for Game 5.

The Hollywood mega-couple cheered on their favorite team, the Sixers, in hostile terrority in Boston.

Will Smith Raps “The Fresh Prince” Theme Song on Graham Norton (VIDEO)

Will Smith stopped by The Graham Norton Show on BBC One during his international publicity tour for Men In Black III to give us a slice of awesome. How so? Watch for yourself as the actor sings along with the entire studio audience and proves that he still knows all the words to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. Don’t we all?

It seems Smith gets recognized primarily for his role on the classic sitcom, something he doesn’t mind at all. Smith jokes, “Listen, every country in the world, that is the thing that I am most known for. No matter how big the movies get, it’s just ‘Fresh Prince’ everywhere… As long as they’re shouting ‘Will!’ it’s cool.”

Watch the video below and prepare to spend the rest of your day nostalgically singing the theme song for the rest of the day. You’re welcome.

Will Smith Slaps Kissing Reporter

You don’t try to man-kiss a member of the Men In Black.

At the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3, a reporter showed Will a little TOO MUCH love and tried to kiss him on the lips. Mr. Smith was not having it and lightly backhanded the overzealous Ukrainian reporter in the face. It was only a split second of anger, then in true movie star fashion Will went on to the next outlet and was his nice guy self again.

Vh1 New Show ‘Celebrity Exes’

You know that expression that goes something like, “Don’t air your dirty laundry for everyone to see?”

Well, apparently, this expression is meaningless nowadays and the upcoming reality show, “Celebrity Exes” is here to prove it. Featuring the exes of Eddie Murphy, Jose Canseco, Will Smith, Prince, and R.Kelly, five women are prepared to reveal everything and make a name for themselves outside the shadow of their ex-husbands.

Sounds nice and everything, but aren’t they using the success of their husbands to make a name for themselves with this show? Hence the show’s title, “Celebrity Exes.” This show isn’t just about a bunch of women making a name for themselves who also happened to be divorced from some pretty famous men. We wouldn’t be watching it if we didn’t think some dirt would be shared. Although, I’m certain that isn’t the point of this, right?

Not only that, supposedly the women have been friends for years (is there some type of support group we should know about – exes of celebrity men?) and are very successful in their own way. Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Vh1 states, “…These women must re-invent themselves again, stepping out of the long shadows cast by their famous husbands and supporting each other as they define the next stage of their lives.”

One thing we all know for sure that their celebrity ex-husbands certainly won’t be gracing the silver screen any time soon for this show.

The show is set to premier in the summer of 2012.
