Jada Pinkett Smith Recalls 'Crying' During Wedding to Will Smith: 'I Never Wanted to be Married'

Jada Pinkett Smith is opening up about her wedding day – and it definitely doesn’t sound like her idea of a fairytale.

During Monday night’s (October 22) episode of her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, the 47-year-old actress revealed that she felt pressured into marrying husband Will Smith back in 1997 because she pregnant with the couple’s first child Jaden.

“It was almost as if my mother [Adrienne Banfield-Jones] was like, ‘You have to get married,’” Jada revealed. “I was under so much pressure being a young actress. Being young, pregnant … I just didn’t know what to do. But I knew I never wanted to be married.”

Jada continued: “I was so upset that I had to have a wedding. I was so pissed…I went crying down the freaking aisle. I cried the whole way down the aisle!”

Jada Pinkett-Smith happily strikes a pose with her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones while attending the U.S. premiere of Debbie Allen’s Freeze Frame held at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday (February 4) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 44-year-old Gotham actress was also joined at the event by Shonda Rhimes, Grey’s Anatomy star James Pickens, Jr., Tony Goldwyn and his sister Liz, Mary J. Blige, Joey McIntyre, Phylicia Rashad, Maria Shriver, Dan Bucatinsky, Nigel Lythgoe, Corbin Bleu and Debbie Allen herself.

Freeze Frame will take audiences on a rollercoaster ride through some of LA’s toughest streets where gangs, poverty, violence, and drugs are an everyday reality.

“It’s like all these souls keep speaking to me and it’s like we’ve got to do something about it,” Debbie told THR. “Yeah, people should be able to have guns. But let’s do it in a safe way. Let’s be reasonable and let’s give some more education and opportunity, and help people that are in need who become desperate.”
