Jada Pinkett Smith Says She Wasn't Meant For a 'Conventional Marriage'

Jada Pinkett Smith is getting candid about her marriage to Will Smith.

The 47-year-old actress and talk show host recently explained that she doesn’t think she was meant for a traditional marriage.

“I knew that I was not built for conventional marriage. Even the word ‘wife’: It’s a golden cage, swallow the key. Even before I was married, I was like, ‘That’ll kill me.’ And it damn near did!” Jada told The Guardian.

She added that her thoughts about marriage didn’t have to do with Will, but how married women are viewed and that’s why she wanted to be open on Red Table Talk.

Jada continued, “Will is my life partner and I could not ask for a better one. I adore him, I never want people to think it was Will I didn’t want to marry…But I can assure you that some of the most powerful women in the world feel caged and tied, because of the sacrifices they have to make to be in that position. So I wanted to talk about how we really feel about marriage. How do we really feel about different, unconventional relationships? How do we really feel about raising children? Honestly.”
