When Will Met Jada!


(VIA ACCESS) Access’ Kit Hoover made a visit to Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch series “Red Table Talk,” for the taping where Will Smith sat down with Jada, their daughter, Willow Smith, and Jada’s mom, Adrienne Banfield-Jones. In the episode, the couple set rumors straight about the early days of their marriage. And, they share fascinating near-miss stories about the time before they became a couple, including when Will went to “A Different World” taping to meet Jada, but met first wife, Sheree Fletcher, instead.

The couple have been together for years and surpassed the usual time frame for celebrity couples to fall off or break up. To their testament of staying together for this long it is quite interesting to see them reveal what they now call life partnership instead of a marriage. 

A funny story is explained on how Will Smith met his first wife on the set of “A Different World”. The show was a hit during the 90’s about college life and Jada was apart of the cast, while Will was starring on his own hit sitcom “Fresh Prince Of Bel Air”.


“I actually think I dated Alfonso,” Pinkett Smith, 47, said on Monday’s episode of her Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk featuring Smith, their daughter Willow and Pinkett Smith’s mom Adrienne Banfield-Jones. “I think I went one date together.”

This didn’t come as a shock to Smith, though. “And he, like, took you on a motorcycle or something,” the actor, 50, added.

She continued, “My memory is: I dated a lot of people, but we went on one date.”

Pinkett Smith also auditioned for Fresh Prince. Though she didn’t get the job, the actress did meet her eventual husband.
