Jada Pinkett Smith Covers June EBONY

Jada Pinkett Smith is proof that good things come in small packages. The 5-foot-tall powerhouse is in control and living life to the fullest as she awaits the premiere of her new TNT drama, "Hawthorne". The talented actress, producer and rocker was surprisingly forthcoming about her marriage to Will, her views on the Church of Scientology and even the Internet rumors. “You want people to talk about you, because once they stop talking about you that’s when you’re really in trouble! I’m happy to have people talk about all the craziness they want to talk about, whether it’s things like every year we’re getting divorced or we’re an open family or Will’s gay, or I’m gay.” And we've some juicy quotes you read here first after the jump... On how she makes her marriage work… “People always ask me, ‘Will, he’s the biggest movie star in the world and we ain’t never heard of him with anybody. How do you keep him from stepping out on you?’” “I’m not that powerful,” she confesses. “I wish I could say it’s because I’m a bad chick. What it has to do with is Will’s relationship with God and who he wants to be as a man for God.” On rumors about the New Village Leadership Academy… “All I can say is it is not a Scientology school. Now, If you don’t trust me, and you are questioning my integrity, that’s a whole different matter. That is straight evil to think that I would bring families into that educational institution and then try to get them to convert into some religion.” On their decision to home school... “I didn’t want my children around other privileged kids who felt entitled. I didn’t want them to be around just one type of person.” On spending time with the kids… “A lot of time, we just sit at home and watch movies together,” she says. “I like to bake with the kids – 7UP cake is our favorite.” On divorce… “When Will asked me to get married, I said, ‘Understand this, there will be no divorce. So, you might be in one bedroom and I might be in another, but we’re gonna be under the same roof and we’re gonna be married.’” On religion… “I believe the worst thing a human being can do to another human being is to take away their God. At the end of the day all we’re trying to do is figure out how to live this life and be fulfilled.” WILL SMITH: On working hard not to hamper his wife’s spirit… “There is no other option if I want the full glory of everything that my wife has to offer me emotionally, and spiritually, and sexually, and all of that. If I want that, then I have to increase my capacity for what I am able to handle from my partner.”

Melody: Love Will & Jada. I

Melody: Love Will & Jada. I always say that they are our generation’s Ozzie davis & Ruby Dee. Ruby Dee and Ozzie Davis had an open relationship. Their philosophy was that as long as they discussed their true intentions with each other, it was okay to have relations outside of their marriage. I believe this was in a interview a couple of years ago, possibly in an Essence mag. That kind of marriage is nothing to aspire to.

Miss Sinsai: Marriage is hard ya’ll. Believe me. I ave been married almost 20 years myself. I’m only 41. I have a 19 yr. old son, 14 yr. old daughter, and a 2 yr. old son. ( ALL FROM THE SAME FATHER AND HUSBAND) She is basically saying, that no matter what you have to make it work, and don’t give up. I do respect her for that. They are both good parents. God bless them to the highest. Cosign. And might I say it is nice to know someone else my age visits this site as well.

saying that she will never

saying that she will never give him a divorce is the same as saying u can do whatever the hell u want to do but u are not getting rid of me. that is some bs, there are just some things people shouldn't put up with just so they can say i'm married to so and so or we have all this money; u mean to tell me have sex with a man or get other women pregnant and u will still sleep in separte rooms, then maybe u two are married to cover up each others sexuallity. or what if he flips out one day and beats the hell out of you, are u still going to sleep in separte rooms?

I love Jada, I'm not ever really interested in what she wears on the red carpet like other celebs...but I love Jada, her & Will are beautiful black couple, rich, with 3 beautiful children & they freaks like most of America...Kudos to you Jada!

GenuineGeorgia: I love Jada

GenuineGeorgia: I love Jada and Will but the veneers on her teeth are TOO long. Am I the only one who sees this? This is true for most of the people who them (i.e. Keyshia Cole, 50 cent, etc). My advice would be to file them down alittle and she needs to soften her looks. She currently looks hard, not soft and feminine. Don’t get this critique confused as “hate” because I love Jada!!!! Jada looks as u say "hard" because she works out and I believe they have a somewhat strick diet (minus those 7-up cakes lol). She has very little body fat and she is also 5' nothing..I think she looks great for her age. It takes dedication to be that lean and in shape. Now that Madonna looks hard as rocks.. Jada, not so much..

I love them as a couple.

I love them as a couple. They are my fav black love couple and Robin and Paula take the cake for fav interracial couple. Both couples are holding it down for decades and not giving a damn about what others say. I respect that. As much as I hope Nick and Mariah and Usher and Tameka last, they can learn a lot from Will & Jada as well as Robin and Paula. Both of those couples keep their relationships private. All we know is that they love each other and they do not come out and defend their relationship. They know their truth and live it. Take notes.

On divorce… “When Will asked me to get married, I said, ‘Understand this, there will be no divorce. So, you might be in one bedroom and I might be in another, but we’re gonna be under the same roof and we’re gonna be married.’” I KNOW THAT'S RIGHT!!!!! Preach! :)

Whoa!: Kudos to you. I am

Whoa!: Kudos to you. I am not married yet but I am finally in a happy relationship and just being in a healthy relationship makes me think about my future a lot. I commend Will and Jada too because in hollywood years they have stood the test of time, so far. I want the same for my possible future husband and kid(s). I always tell my cousin, who is one of the FEW women I have come across that has such a beautiful relationship with her husband. They’ve been together over 20 years, finally had kids (2), owns a townhouse and a beautiful house, and she’s happy. I always let her know how much of an inspiration she is to me. No baby daddies, no drama. Just a happy wife and mother. These days you don’t see much of that in regards to black families, not to say they aren’t out there. But when I see it, I GOTTA give props. I always tell my husband that the "til' death do us part..means his ass!!! *SMILE* Thanks for the uplift. If you want the same..ask, believe, and receive.It's true. The law of attraction works. Put God first, and HE will give u what you want. I know of what I speak!!!

I totally love Jada. I can't

I totally love Jada. I can't wait for her show to come out. And it's funny how no one believes them about their own business. How many times does she have to say that they're not swingers for people to believe it. I know someone who's doing some work for them and was told that none of the rumors are true. I always took them at their word. They didn't seem to be that crazy. And I think celebs get used to the fact that no matter what they say, people are gonna talk and they're gonna lie. None of us on here are celebs but I bet everyone on here has been lied on before. Imagine dealing with that 1000xfold.

I have to say that I have a lot of respect for Will & Jada as a couple. I've heard all the rumors about them, and I'm not sure if they're true or not, but I can say that they really seem to be solid as a couple & as parents. I have a lot of respect for any man who values his wife & kids & has a relationship with God! That's a GREAT look!

I LOVE will and Jada. Swiggers or not. They are making it work. Only God can Judge them. How many black kids can say that they were raised by BOTH parents. The statistics on black children being raised by single parents is alarming! She did not want her children being around other children with a sense of entitlement, I LOVE it!

Love Will & Jada. I always say that they are our generation's Ozzie davis & Ruby Dee. Jada is a very blessed woman. She seems to have a wonderful fullfilling and exciting marriage to a man who loves her and is dedicated to her & their union. That just doesn't happen all the time anymore--very rare these days. She looks beautiful by the way.

The talented actress,

The talented actress, producer and rocker was surprisingly forthcoming about her marriage to Will, her views on the Church of Scientology and even the Internet rumors. “You want people to talk about you, because once they stop talking about you that’s when you’re really in trouble! I’m happy to have people talk about all the craziness they want to talk about, whether it’s things like every year we’re getting divorced or we’re an open family or Will’s gay, or I’m gay.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I think this speaks VOLUMES of Jada's maturity level and confidence in her marriage. Unlike some that like to try and privitize their very public marriage/relationships. They're a few black celebrity couples that come to mind that could benefit from Will & Jada's wisdom on how to make a hollywood marriage work!
