Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith Put Family First Because They Actually Like Their Kids
May 12, 2016
Jada Pinkett Smith made an appearance on The Tonight Show last night, and gave some interesting and hilarious insights into her family dynamic!
First of all... she admits that she actually LIKES her kids... which SURPRISES her!
She told Jimmy Fallon, "I must say, even though I have two teenagers, I still like them. You know, you have to love your children, but it doesn't mean you have to like them—especially when they're teenagers, OK? You have to love them. I know when I was a teenager my mother, from 13 to about 40, I made a turn; she didn't like me. I was a wild child on the streets of Baltimore. That's real talk. Compared to my children and what I was doing, they're angels."
She also got into how Will Smith handles their teenagers - and how he makes family time a priority! She said, "Will sat me down, literally, about two days ago with his computer, his laptop, and he had a whole list of things that he wants to do with his family this summer—several places he wants to go that he's determined to take all five of us. I was like, 'You know, everybody has pretty tight schedules.' He was like, 'Doesn't matter. This is what we're doing this summer.' He's planning the vacation."
She continues, "I said, 'You know what? Talk to the kids, and then you can come back to me, but big daddy's going to have to handle this one, because I don't know you're going to get this done.' We're always doing something, and he has like 10 places he wants to go. I'm like, 'Why don't you just choose one and keep us there for like two weeks?'"
Gotta love Will and Jada. They're always candid and hilarious and obviously have a great relationship and family.
