On the latest episode of Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett-Smith got candid about what's involved in maintaining a "healthy" sex life in her marriage with husband Will Smith.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow was at the Table this week, promoting her new Netflix show, Sex, Love & goop and the conversation centered on the inner workings of the bedroom, specifically around maintaining a connection with a partner and being honest.
"It's hard," Jada told Gwyneth. "The thing Will and I talk about a lot is the journey. We started in this at a very young age, you know, 22 years old. That's why the accountability part really hit for me because I think you expect your partner to know [what you need], especially when it comes to sex. It's like, 'Well, if you love me, you should know. If you love me, you should read my mind.' That's a huge pitfall," she added.
Well, Twitter took the topic of the conversation and ran with the headline that she and Will had problems in their sex life. The Set It Off actress' name trended on Twitter, the jokes flew, and apparently Jada got wind of the situation.
"Only because I got time today. Stop making up headline. Watch @RedTableTalk I did with @GwynethPaltrow for yourselves," she tweeted Thursday evening (October 27).
"Will and I have NEVER had an issue in the bedroom. Thank you," she added.
Will and Jada's marriage has been the subject of public opinion for a while now. Just last month, Will opened up to GQ about their relationship, and Jada's public "entanglement" with R&B singer August Alsina, stating that at the time, people didn't get the full story of what actually went down.
"The public has a narrative that is impenetrable," Will said. "Once the public decides something, it's difficult to impossible to dislodge the pictures and ideas and perceptions."
The couple will be celebrating 24 years of marriage together in December and while people have a lot to say, they know each other.
"We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can't be a prison. And I don't suggest our road for anybody. I don't suggest this road for anybody. But the experiences that the freedoms that we've given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love."
