Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, despite their separation, still view themselves as a formidable duo in the Hollywood landscape. This perspective was revealed by a source to OK Magazine, who emphasized that the couple, despite their current personal situation, maintain a significant presence and influence in the entertainment industry.

The source stated, “They’re separated, but they still consider themselves an important team and a force in Hollywood.” An insider, reflecting on the situation, added, “Time will tell if that proves to be the case.”

The source further highlighted the couple’s dedication and positive outlook, particularly following Jada Pinkett-Smith’s revelation on her show ‘Red Table Talk.’ She disclosed that she and the ‘King Richard’ star have been living separately since 2016. Despite these challenges, the source pointed out that the couple is not shying away from hard work and remains optimistic about their future, both individually and as a unit.

In November 2023, during an appearance on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show,’ Jada Pinkett-Smith spoke candidly about her marriage. She expressed a strong commitment to staying married to Will Smith, despite the difficulties they’ve faced. “We’re staying together forever. I tried. We tried,” she said, reflecting on her relationship with the Oscar winner.

In a separate conversation, while promoting her book ‘Worthy,’ Jada Pinkett-Smith shared a unique perspective on how Will Smith’s controversial incident at the Academy Awards, commonly referred to as the ‘slap,’ had an unexpected positive impact on their marriage. She admitted, “I nearly didn’t even attend the Oscars that year, but I’m glad I did. I call it the ‘holy slap’ now because so many positive things came after it.” She elaborated on this, stating, “That moment of the hitting the fan is when you see where you are. After all those years trying to figure out if I would leave Will’s side, it took that slap for me to see I will never leave him.”

However, another source spoke to Star magazine, offering a slightly different view. According to this source, Will Smith harbors a deep affection for Jada. They said, “Will loves Jada very much. Neither one of them wants a divorce.” The insider then added, “Right now, they’re both just trying to make sense of the mess that their marriage has become.” This statement suggests that, despite the challenges and the separation, there remains a deep connection and a sense of commitment between the two, as they navigate the complexities of their relationship.
