Will Smith has spoken out about his marriage following Rebel Wilson's dig at him and Jada Pinkett Smith at the 2022 BAFTAs last weekend.
The Australian actress, who hosted the event, made viewers rather uncomfortable when she poked fun at Will and Jada's marriage after Will won Best Film Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in King Richard.
Although Will and Jada were absent from the event - attending the Critics Choice Awards in Los Angeles on the same night - it seems that the Fresh Prince actor may have heard about Rebel's comments.
Will had been speaking on CBS Sunday Morning after also winning Best Actor in a Leading Role at the Critics Choice Awards when he decided to set the record straight about his marriage once and for all.
Speaking to Gayle King, Will insisted that there had "never been infidelity" in his marriage.
He added: "Jada and I talk about everything. We have never surprised one another with anything ever."
Academy Award-nominee Will Smith says he didn’t know how to act when he got an impromptu audition for “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” — but he says that didn’t stop him from chasing his dreams: “If someone asks you if you can do something, always say yes.” pic.twitter.com/R9aoBKezd7— CBS Mornings (@CBSMornings) March 14, 2022
After landing the award for Best Actor at the BAFTAs, Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson raised eyebrows when she joked: "I thought his best performance over the past year was being OK with all his wife’s boyfriends."
Fans of the Smith family were shocked when Jada and Will revealed that they have an open marriage during an episode of her Facebook show Red Table Talk.
In 2020, Jada confirmed she had an ‘entanglement’ with R&B singer August Alsina. The spouses were separated at the time.
Last year, Will confirmed that he had also had a relationship with another woman during his marriage and confirmed the pair actually have an open marriage.
Following Rebel's dig at Will, those who were tuned in to the BAFTAs took to Twitter to express their disappointment.
"Rebel Wilson didn’t have to make that joke about Will and Jada lol so uncalled for man. #BAFTAs” tweeted one viewer.
Another Twitter user wrote: “That Rebel Wilson Will Smith/Jada joke didn't land at all. Just awful.”
