Ale Posted November 5, 2009 Report Share Posted November 5, 2009 (edited) Article from PRIDE Magazine: Will Smith: The Last Movie Star Recently, the Los Angeles Times and a number of movie experts agreed that we had seen the death of the movie star. With all the top stars having major flops, they came to the conclusion that only one star could ensure a movie’s success by their name alone: Will Smith. Will took time out to explain how he went from being a guy with “average talent” to an enduring superstar at work and at home. You always seem to come across as a loyal, loving husband. Were you ever a playa in your earlier days? I have had only five girlfriends in my entire life. I needed to know the chick for a long time before I even said anything. But you seem so super-confident… The problem was, I could never put myself out there. At school I was madly in love with this girl. Her name was Charlene Brown. During a school assembly I caught her eye, and to this day I do not know why, but I screamed out, “Hey, Charlene, how are you feeling?” And over 1,000 students’ heads I heard her shout back, “Too good for you.” That must have hurt! From that moment, I never approached or said a word to a girl unless I was absolutely certain that she liked me. And now? You never forget. Even with the wife, I make sure she is in the mood before I approach. Charlene never leaves your head. Every guy has that girl that wrecked them! You and Jada have been married ten years and, by all accounts, are very happy. What’s the key? Communication. And divorce cannot be an option. Your first marriage ended in divorce. That is probably the most painful loss of my life. I quit. I could have fixed it. It really was not that bad. Some would say there’s no reason to stay if a marriage isn’t good. Once you say that, you’ve lost. With Jada, I stood up in front of God and my family and friends and said, “Till death do us part.” So there are two possible outcomes: we are going to be together till death, or I am dead. But people do have problems in marriage. Jada and I have problems; everybody has problems. People ask, “What happens if you made a mistake?” Well, you should be a little more careful before you stand up in front of God and your family and friends and say, “Till death do us part.” Read the full article in Pride November issue, out now http://www.pridemagazine.com/25.html Edited November 5, 2009 by Ale Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
