If you had to choose one word to describe two decades of marriage, excruciating would be up there. So kudos to Will Smith for not dressing up the situation in rose tinted paraphernalia. Like, AT ALL.
Speaking with ET on the red carpet premiere for Concussion, the 47-year-old said: "We've been married 20 years and we've been asking ourselves [what’s the secret to marriage] and really at the end of the day it’s just not quitting. You can’t expect it to be easy, it’s like our marriage was the most difficult, gruelling, excruciating thing that we have ever taken on in our lives. And you know were just not quitters."
Ya here that, Hollywood?! Yisser all quitters!

He also had this nugget to offer - presumably about marriage counselling: "If there is a secret I would say is that we never went into working in our relationship. We only ever worked on ourselves individually, and then presented ourselves to one another better than we were previously."
In other news, he also wants to run for office. Here's hoping it's in 2020... Speaking via Scott Feinberg's 'Awards Chatter' podcast, he said: "'I'm working really hard and my storytelling is elevating, my ability to be eloquent with my body and with my voice and to deliver ideas as an actor is elevating... And, you know, as I look at the political landscape, I think that there might be a future out there for me. They might need me out there. This is the first year that I've been incensed to a level that I can't sleep, you know? So I'm feeling that at some point, in the near future, I will have to lend my voice to the conversation in a somewhat different way."
He then added: "America’s the only place on earth that I could exist. No other country on earth produces Will Smiths, you know."
