Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals Why She Invited Will on THAT Red Table Talk Episode

Jada Pinkett Smith isn't afraid to put it all out there on her Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk — even if the topic involves her relationship with husband Will Smith. The Angel Has Fallen actress stopped by The Late Show on Aug. 13, where she opened up to host Stephen Colbert about Will's intimate feature on a recent episode of the show.

The 50-year-old actor joined Jada at the now-infamous red table back in October and got honest about the highs and lows of their 22-year marriage. Throughout the episode, they discuss everything from how they met to the time they almost called it quits for good.

"What was really important about Will and I doing that show together — two things — first of all was to get rid of the idea that people in the public eye have perfect relationships," she told Colbert. "We were kind of sick of living up to that. We were real sick of it." She also mentioned that the two of them "coming together and taking responsibility for both of our parts" felt important to her.

"Will being the successful guy that he is and being willing to share what his pitfalls were in the relationship and in his family, you can't imagine how many other successful men called and said, 'Wow, my wife has been saying the same thing for years. Because you said it, it opened my eyes and because you said it, now I'm willing to listen,'" she added. Will and Jada got married back in 1997, and are, of course, still going strong today.
