Jada Pinkett Smith dropped a bombshell about her relationship with Will Smith.

"I feel like maybe your and his shadow separated in a way in this book, whether they stay together forever or not," Drew Barrymore said of the Bad Moms star's memoir, Worthy. "It sounds like you're staying together forever."

"We’re staying together forever," Jada emphasized about her relationship with the Men in Black actor, 55. "I tried. We tried."

As OK! previously reported, the Red Table Talk host and Will shocked the world when Jada revealed the two had been separated for years without the public knowing. "We're still figuring it out," she explained during an interview.

Jada Pinkett Smith said she and Will Smith will be 'together forever.'

"We've been doing some really heavy-duty work together. We just got deep love for each other and we are going to figure out what that looks like for us," the Set It Off actress added.

"I think we were both stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be," she explained during a recent appearance on Today about what went wrong with Will, whom she married in 1997. "The truth of the matter is I'm not leaving Will's side and he's not going to leave mine. We've been on a powerful quest. And I'm happier than I've ever been."

In an even more shocking admission, Jada said the I Am Legend actor infamously slapping Chris Rock in her honor during the 2022 Academy Awards made her want to repair their relationship even more.

"Can you show up and love somebody for the rest of your life even when you don't agree with them?" he asked the crowd at one of her book events. "I am going to show up for her and support her for the rest of my life."

"Our union is a sloppy public experiment. It is a sloppy public experiment in unconditional love," he added. "As I stand here before you today, I am happier than I’ve ever been in my entire life … I have achieved every single thing I have ever wanted in my entire life."
