Top 10 Times Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Made Us Believe In Love

Perfect couples don’t exis-... oh, who are we kidding? Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Times Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Made Us Believe In Love.

For this list, we’ll be looking at one of Hollywood’s most charming, endearing couples, and the reasons why they are, in fact, #relationshipgoals.

#10: Becoming Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Back in his days of being Bel-Air royalty, Will caught sight of Jada while she was on “A Different World.” Jada just so happened to be friends of friends with a certain Tom Jones fan and, may we say, one heck of a dancer. Will — already enamored by Jada — asked none other than Alfonso Ribeiro if he could arrange a meeting. On the day they were supposed to meet, Will caught sight of another woman named Sheree, who he would end up marrying, having a son with, and splitting up with, but during that time he and Jada would continue to cross paths until, well... the rest is history.

#9: How They Deal with Rumors

Every year, there seems to be a new rumor about the couple — some more fun than others, as Jada once admitted in an interview about people thinking that they were swingers. Unfortunately, a majority of them are about the two breaking up. It happens so often that the couple tend to not respond to what they feel is utter nonsense, but when they do respond? Well... there are a couple ways they shut haters down. There’re bold declarations on social media, interviews where they question why people are so desperate for them to break up, and even diss tracks. That’s right. Will Smith stepped into the studio and...we’ll let him take it from here.

#8: Their Charity Work

Throughout the years, this Hollywood power couple has donated to an ongoing list of charitable causes, even making it onto Forbes’ “Most Generous Celebrities” lists for their efforts. From donating their birthdays to “charity: water” and hosting a contest for three fans to join them in Africa, to creating their own family foundation to youth in the arts, the Pinkett-Smith family is one that believes in giving back to the community and working to set a good example for everyone. If only all celebs could use their influence like this!

#7: Jada’s Relationship with Sheree

One of the many things we love about the Smith-Pinkett family is their honesty when it comes to their relationship. Jada especially doesn’t sugarcoat things, as seen in the first episode of her series, “Red Table Talk.” Here, she sits down and speaks to Will’s ex-wife and mother of his oldest son, Sheree Fletcher. While she and Will did not hook up while he was married, she admits that she probably should’ve taken a step back while he and Sheree were going through their divorce. However, the two women not only worked things out, but Jada has also thanked Sheree for being her entry point into motherhood by demonstrating how to be a good parent.

#6: Will’s 20-Year Marriage Anniversary Message

Will Smith joining Instagram was one of the greatest gifts of 2017, and we’ve been reaping the benefits ever since. Seriously, he’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face... or make you tear up when he decides to post something as endearing as his message to Jada on their 20th Wedding Anniversary. Of course, he couldn’t post a simple “Happy Anniversary”, no, that’d be too easy. Instead, he compared love to gardening, revealing the things he’s learned along the way: listening, giving, nurturing your partner, helping them blossom. He also shared a picture of the two of them when they first walked down the aisle. We’re not crying, you’re crying.

#5: ‘Just the Two of Us’ Music Video
One of the many ways to say “I love you” is to express yourself through song. Will Smith, being Will Smith, took this idea and, well, made an entire music video, because that’s what you do when you’re going Big Willie Style. His version of the Grover Washington Jr. and Bill Withers classic puts emphasis on a father’s love for his son, featuring the rapper with his eldest child, Trey, along with other celebrity fathers with their children. However, the video also features a pregnant Jada, showing us the growth of the Pinkett-Smith family, and more importantly, it shows that Trey is included in that family.

#4: Admitting Their Flaws

The number one question couples get when they’ve been together for a long time is, “How do you do it?” Well, remember what we said about loving the Smith-Pinkett honesty? This is a couple that doesn’t simply respond with the often used “We’re just so in love” in regards to being together for multiple decades. Will and Jada have spoken at length on how, like every other relationship on the planet, there are both good times and bad. In fact, they not only commented on going to marriage counseling, they championed it, and have not shied away from the fact that you have to be willing to do the work in order to maintain a happy marriage.

#3: All Their Red Carpet Moments

Whether it’s at award ceremonies, in interviews, or even when other celebs tell stories about them, we just can’t get enough of these two. Basically, you can argue that everything this couple does makes our social media feed a little bit brighter - but the red carpet? That’s where they really shine. First off, their fashion game is always 100% on point, but they also seem to have such a great time together. Will's obviously a bit of a goofball, but Jada takes his antics in stride, and sometimes the cameras catch them giving each other looks that let the other - and the whole world - know just how in love they are.


#2: Their Oprah Interview

Ten out of ten would recommend spending forty minutes checking out this interview. In 2010, the Pinkett-Smith family sat down with Oprah and gave us a glimpse of their life. Oh, and members of their extended family were there, too: Sheree, her husband, even the couple’s grandmothers were present in the audience. The show opened with husband and wife, then later in the segment Oprah talked to Trey, Jaden, and Willow. From relationship tips, to raising kids, and being a successful family filled to the brim with talent, it was a grand showing of their love for one another and how they keep it all together.

Before we get to our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

#1: Being ‘Life Partners’

GASP! Did you hear? Will and Jada don’t call themselves married anymore! Ah, those rumors are at it again, only this one is actually true... but it’s not what you think. On Tidal’s “Rap Radar” podcast, Will broke down where he and Jada are in their relationship, as the couple now considers themselves to be life partners, a space Will says you reach when you realize that you’re going to be with someone for the rest of your life. Both of them feel that marriage is about being the best version of yourself, about being an individual who can work on loving themselves before coming together to form, well, a union that’s twenty years strong.
