Will Smith on Tabloid Rumors About His Marriage: “I’m Indestructible”
Will Smith hasn't been in a film in four years, but now he's starting his media blitz for Men in Black 3, which opens May 25. So we may hear more rumors about Will and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith having problems in their marriage.
"For me, with that kind of stuff, you can't take it personally," Will told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson. "It's a game."
Shaun asked, "Part of the downside of fame?”
"It's funny, I don't even look at things as upsides and downsides," Will said. "It's just a part of the game. I'm not going to play that part, but I can understand where somebody would have something in their heart where they need to stab somebody or they need to poke at somebody." He laughs. "But I'm indestructible!"
But is his marriage indestructible? Last August, after rumors came out that they'd split, Will and Jada said in a statement, "Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact."
Will made a point of thanking Shaun for her tact in the way she asked about the rumors. So maybe part of the game on his end is giving selective interviews to the people who are most respectful to him and his relationship. Why not?
