“When I was 19, I auditioned to play one of his girlfriends on Fresh Prince and they told me I was too short. But then, many years later, once I started a film career and everything, Mr. Smith decided he wanted to come and ask me to play his girlfriend again. And I had to tell him ‘no’ again. Thank goodness because I think if I had done it, we would not be married today. Because you have to meet people when you’re ready and neither one of us were ready at that time.”

Jada also revealed that it was her mom who knew that Will was the right guy for her.  She explained:

“I remember meeting him one time at Bullock’s. Bullock’s is this department store here in Los Angeles. And I was with my mother! And here comes Will. He’s like, ‘Hey Jada!’ and saying hello to my mother and just as cheery and happy as he always is. And my mother said, ‘Why can’t you date a nice guy like him?’ I said, ‘Will?! That’s the Fresh Prince! What I’mma do with him?!’ And of course, look at me now. He got me on lock down, Arsenio! He got me! Finally!”

What are your thoughts on their relationship?
