(CNN) — Jada Pinkett Smith has 23 years married to Will Smith, but after being in quarantine with him, has given an account of who did not know him at all.
She revealed how is the life at home during the pandemic of coronavirus in its program “Red Table Talk”, and said to her daughter, Willow and mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, that the life that she wore was so busy that he did not know the real man under his big personality.
“I have to be honest. I think one of the things that I’ve realized is that I don’t know Will at all,” said Pinkett Smith to her guest, pastor John Gray. “I feel there is a layer to which you come, the life is filled and you create these stories in your head, and then you cling to these stories and that is your idea of your partner; that is not who is your partner”.
Although the two share two children and have been married for decades, Pinkett Smith said that the two “are going through the process of having to dissolve all those stories and all the ideas of Will”, to really know who he is.
”This is intimacy,” said Pinkett Smith. “Just being able to get to know who our loved ones beyond what we have perceived”.
She said that they are first learning to love themselves, then love between them as friends.
”Will and I are in the process of that he will take the time to learn to love yourself, that I take the time to learn to love myself, and that together we can build a friendship on the way,” he said. “Let me tell you, this has been a great thing, being married to someone for 20 years and realizing that I don’t know you and you do not know me, and also that there is an aspect of yourself that you either you know.”
