The Smiths have been married for 16 years, which is a lot of time for pesky rumors to surface about a celebrity relationship. Most recently, Jada Pinkett Smith
cleared up buzz that she and Will Smith
have an open marriage.
The actress said in a interview (via HuffPost Live
): "No, I think that people get that idea because Will and I are very relaxed with one another," she said. "But I've always told Will: You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay."
Jada further explained about the "persistent" rumor: "Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I'm here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that's not for me to do for him. Or vice versa."
These two have also had to fight off rumors that they're heading for divorce. The split talk was at its height back in the summer of 2011, when Jada was said to be having an affair with her newly single HawthoRNe co-star, Marc Anthony. Clearly, that didn't happen.
