                            Will Smith confesses that wife Jada Pinkett 'cried for 45 days straight' during their worst days in marriage

Will Smith, in an extremely rare moment, decided to open up about his once-faltering marriage to Jada Pinkett. In a sneak peek for his wife's Facebook Watch show 'Red Table Talk', the 50-year-old can be seen tearing up as he discusses the darker times in their 21-year union, reports Daily Mail.

"There was a period where mommy woke up and cried 45 days straight, I started keeping a diary," he says to their daughter Willow in the video clip. "You missed some days," Jada interjects with a wry smile.

"It was every morning. I think that’s the worst I've ever felt in our marriage," Will added. "I was failing miserably." Jada's show sees the actress, joined by their 17-year-old daughter Willow and Jada's mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones as three generations of the family's women, talk about the world around them.

Further along the video, Will can also be seen saying that he and his wife "don't even call ourselves married anymore", a sentence that he and Jada finished in unison, leaving the others at the table shocked. The couple has previously too visited this statement, and said that they see each other more as "life partners".



 

Another video shows the playful couple sparring each other lightheartedly. "You're not breaking me today, Jada", Will warns her before she fires back: "I've broken you enough".

The Facebook Watch series teaser also has a clip where Jada is seen admitting, "I've dated a lot of people", which in turn prompts her husband Will to jokingly storm off saying, "alright I've had enough of the Red Table".



 

Will and Jada, who got married on New Year's Eve in 1997, had their first child, Jaden, six months after their wedding. The couple also share daughter Willow, while Will also has a 25-year-old son Trey from his first marriage to Sheree Zampino.

Among the other guests who are going to be a part of the second season of 'Red Table Talk' is Leah Remini. Fans of the actress would remember that Leah and Jada clashed on social media last year over Leah's claims and Jada's denial that she was a Scientologist.
