Will Smith got real candid during his interview with GQ magazine.
The 53-year-old opened up about his marital issues with wife Jada Pinkett-Smith and wanting a harem of girlfriends.
Well that gives new meaning to Big Willie Style!
“I don’t know where I saw it or some s–t as a teenager, but the idea of traveling with 20 women that I loved and took care of and all of that, it seemed like a really great idea,” he confessed in the November cover story.
Smith went on to say that his fantasy lineup included Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry and famed ballerina Misty Copeland — who he even considered reaching out to tell them about his vision.
Smith shared that it was via conversations with intimacy coach Michaela Boehman that he realized his urges were normal.
“What she was doing was essentially cleaning out my mind, letting it know it was okay to be me and be who I was,” he said.
The King Richard actor also opened up about his open marriage with wife Jada Pinkett-Smith. Per Will the marriage was monogamous for a while before it evolved into something more non-traditional.
The couple damn near broke the internet when they revealed Pinkett’s entanglement with singer August Alsina last year, so Smith’s admission isn’t too shocking. He did admit however that Jada wasn’t the only one who has had an “extramarital relationship” saying:
“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.”
Smith also shared his thoughts on George Floyd’s killing, Black Lives Matter and slavery films. When speaking about the latter he said he’d always avoided them until seeing Django Unchained.
“In the early part of my career… I didn’t want to show Black people in that light. I wanted to be a superhero. So I wanted to depict Black excellence alongside my white counterparts. I wanted to play roles that you would give to Tom Cruise. And the first time I considered it was Django. But I didn’t want to make a slavery film about vengeance.”
Smith will next bee see in Emancipation, an Apple TV+ project that tells the story of “Whipped Peter,” the Black man whose tattered back is depicted in one of the most famous photos of an enslaved American.
“This was one that was about love and the power of Black love,” Smith said. “And that was something that I could rock with. We were going to make a story about how Black love makes us invincible.”
