Will Smith and Jada focusing on ‘deep healing’

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett are now focusing on deep healing after Will slapped comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars.

Jada’s Red Table Show has returned for the fifth season and while announcing its return, it was accompanied by a Facebook message that read

“Considering all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focusing on deep healing. Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared at the table when the time calls.”

“Until then, the table will continue offering itself to powerful, inspiring and healing testimonies like that of our incredibly impressive first guest. Thanks for joining us, Jada.”

The slap led to Smith being banned from the Oscars for ten years. In a statement, the Academy President David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson said

“The Board has decided, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith shall not be permitted to attend any Academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Academy Awards,”

“The 94th Oscars were meant to be a celebration of the many individuals in our community who did incredible work this past year; however, those moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behavior we saw Mr. Smith exhibit on stage. During our telecast, we did not adequately address the situation in the room”

“For this, we are sorry. This was an opportunity for us to set an example for our guests, viewers and our Academy family around the world, and we fell short — unprepared for the unprecedented.”

The actor had also announced his resignation from the academy.

Even though the public wasn’t informed of when they will speak about the controversy, it is evident that the smith family does not shy away from difficult conversations.

In 2020, the public got to know of her entanglement with August Alsina.

Will Smith smacks Chris Rock over Jada joke

Will Smith appeared to slap Chris Rock during a live broadcast of the Oscar Sunday March 27.

The slap happened after Rock, 57, made a reference to Jada’s shaved head, joking, “Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it, all right?”

Jada Pinkett told to stop embarrassing Will Smith about their marriage


Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett is feeling the wrath of social media after her latest story on her Facebook Live page.

During a discussion with actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Jada lets it known that she and Will have an unhealthy siegs life.

Netizens reacted saying she is exposing too much about their marital life and in the end hurting Will Smith.

The internet pretty much has not forgotten her entanglement issue with singer August Alsina back in 2020, when he told that Will gave him permission to date his wife. She denied it and he returned with receipts about their affair. She later backed down and invited Will to te red table where they told that it’s bad marriage for life.

Jada in the Red table discussed with mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris and guest Gwyneth Paltrow the difficulties of maintaining a healthy siegs life.

“It’s hard,” Jada said. “The thing Will and I talk about a lot is the journey. We started in this at a very young age, you know, 22 years old. That’s why the accountability part really hit for me because I think you expect your partner to know [what you need], especially when it comes to ***. It’s like, ‘Well, if you love me, you should know. If you love me, you should read my mind.’ That’s a huge pitfall.”


Social media reacted sharply telling her to stop exposing and embarrassing Will.

Name someone that should stop talking, but won’t…

A disproportionate number of black women will never marry or remarry meanwhile #JadaPinkettSmith is just mean and disrespectful to her husband. SMGDH

But frfr…I think what #jadapinkettsmith is doing is technically domestic abuse.cause..sh*t man…I mean damn Will… we will fight her for you just say so

How can you even rock with #jadapinkettsmith after her last comment. Like no matter how tough the marriage is, don’t humiliate the ones you took vows with like that. Walking away would be more respectable.

I’m so tired of hearing about #jadapinkettsmith marriage.

Will Smith tells GQ he also had entanglements while married to Jada

Will Smith has opened up about his marriage to Jada Pinkett and his career in an interview with GQ magazine.

He told that Jada wasn’t the only one in entanglements, a word she coined to mean extramarital affairs.

He said he once thought about cheating with Halle Berry.

He sought the help of a relationship coach, where he said he wanted a harem of women that he could take care of.

“I don’t know where I saw it or some shit as a teenager, but the idea of traveling with 20 women that I loved and took care of and all of that, it seemed like a really great idea,” he said, explaining that he had crushes on Misty Copeland, Halle Berry, and other women. “And then, after we played it out a little bit, I was like, ‘That would be horrific. That would be horrific.’ I was like, ‘Can you imagine how miserable?’ What [the intimacy coach] was doing was essentially cleaning out my mind, letting it know it was okay to be me and be who I was. It was okay to think Halle is fine. It doesn’t make me a bad person that I’m married and I think Halle is beautiful. Whereas in my mind, in my Christian upbringing, even my thoughts were sins. That was really the process that Michaela worked me through to let me realize that my thoughts were not sins and even acting on an impure thought didn’t make me a piece of sh*t.”

Will went on to speak briefly about his wife’s “entanglement” with singer August Alsina, explaining that they have never had a conventional marriage.

“Jada never believed in conventional marriage.… Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up,” he said. “There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple? And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection. We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison. And I don’t suggest our road for anybody. I don’t suggest this road for anybody. But the experiences that the freedoms that we’ve given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love.”

Will Smith reveals possible plan to run for political office in future


Will Smith has said he might venture into politics in the future in a podcast recently.

Will Smith was interviewed by Crooked Media’s Pod Save America podcast where he for a second time hinted he is up for the idea of running for political office one day.

“I think for now I’ll let that office get cleaned up a little bit and then I’ll consider that at some point down the line,” Smith said. “I absolutely have an opinion, I’m optimistic, I’m hopeful, I believe in understanding between people and I believe in the possibility of harmony. I will certainly do my part, whether it remains artistic or, at some point, ventures into the political arena.”

The actor spoke about running for president in 2015 during Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. “If people keep saying all the crazy kinds of stuff they’ve been saying on the news lately about walls and Muslims, they’re going to force me into the political arena,” he told CBS Sunday Morning. will smith and jada

Those remarks came after Smith appeared on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast and used somewhat similar phrasing to discuss a potential future in politics. “And, you know, as I look at the political landscape, I think that there might be a future out there for me,” he said. “They might need me out there. This is the first year that I’ve been incensed to a level that I can’t sleep, you know? So I’m feeling that at some point, in the near future, I will have to lend my voice to the conversation in a somewhat different way.”

What the critics are saying about Aladdin

Aladdin, the new film starring Will Smith was released last weekend. The live-action remake of Disney’s 1992 cartoon with the late great Robin Williams playing the role of the genie.

The reviews have largely been mixed, with some praising the performances, costumes, and musical numbers, while others criticized Ritchie’s direction, the pacing, and the CGI effects.

The changes made to the original film also divided critics, mainly in Jafar’s character and portrayal. In contrast, the film received a positive response from audiences polled by CinemaScore and PostTrak.

Part of the critic’s reviews are below;

Film Threat; As a chapter in the Disney classic remakes, Jungle Book still stands at the top. Behind it is Aladdin and Cinderella fighting for second place with the rest as a distant whatever.
The Guardian; It is lively, colourful and genuinely funny, and doesn’t break what didn’t need fixing about the original.
San Francisco Chronicle; Aladdin, the live-action remake of the 1992 Disney animation, is more than a pleasant surprise. It’s a complete delight that stands up its own and is, in many ways, an improvement on the original.

Aladdin cover art
Art for the movie

Variety; It’s great to see Smith in comedic mode again, and smart of the team to base the Genie’s personality on the star’s brand, rather than imitating what Williams did with the role. Even in cases where Smith is quoting directly from the original, his persona comes through loud and clear as this blue-hued, CG-enhanced master of ceremonies.
IGN; While Smith does fine work, how reliant this Genie is on Smith’s personality does make you wonder if an actor pushing farther out of their comfort zone would have gotten us closer to the boundless creativity that made Robin Williams’ performance so memorable.

Aladdin cover art
Art for the movie

IndieWire; Smith puts on such an outsized performance that it’s easy for him to overshadow its smaller joys — and when Genie is suddenly silenced in a limp third act, the entire film suffers.
TheWrap; The original Aladdin was an innovative motion picture, heralding a new era of CG-assisted animation and celebrity stunt-casting. It was bold and exciting. The remake rehashes the original in a pleasing but perfunctory way.

Boston Globe; Here’s the thing about Disney’s “live-action” remakes of its animated classics: The new versions may be bigger, louder, and more lavish, but they’ll never be original. The thrill of first impact is gone.
Washington Post; The movie is colorful and pretty, and Smith brings a fresh, more street-wise approach to his character, while still honoring the motor-mouthed spirit of Williams’s scene-stealing performance.
