Will Smith has spoken publicly about how he felt while reading a new book written by his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Her new memoir, “Worthy”, contains an incredible amount of detail about her relationship with Will and her life as a whole. One of the publication’s biggest revelations is the fact that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been separated for six years and only pretend to be a couple on the red carpet.
Will Smith read his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s book and decided to write an open letter to British podcaster Jay Shetty, who then read it to Smith’s wife, who was a guest on his new podcast episode titled “On Purpose.”
“I just turned the final page of ‘Worthy’,” wrote Smith. “It is amazing to realize that despite having lived most of my life by your side, I still found myself shocked and stunned and caught off guard, laughing, then inspired, then heartbroken. I was all over the place.”
He continued: “It’s one thing to hear anecdotes at a family barbecue, but it was truly overwhelming to take in your story, potently condensed in this way.”
“I know it wasn’t easy to excavate the depths in that way. I applaud and honor you,” he wrote in the letter. “If I had read this book 30 years ago, I definitely would have hugged you more. I’ll start now. Welcome to the Authors Club. I love you endlessly. Now go get some Merlot and take a rest.”
After Shetty finished reading Smith’s words, Pinkett Smith said: “He knows I can’t have no Merlot!,” she exclaimed. “That’s beautiful. That’s why I can’t divorce that joker.”
She continued in tears: “To hear him say that he would have hugged me more is me hearing him say he would have taken a bit more time to listen and understand.”
