Jada Pinkett Smith has said that rumours that she and her husband of 15 years Will Smith have an open marriage is the “most persistent” rumour she hears about their relationship.

Speaking to HuffPost Live, Smith said, "I think that people get that idea because Will and I are very relaxed with one another.

"From how I've answered questions - 'Girl, what would you do if he came home and this and that and that' or, 'Being married to a big superstar like Will, how do you deal with other women?' - my answer always is - I've always told Will, 'You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay'."

Pinkett Smith added: "At the end of the day, Will is his own man. I'm here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that's not for me to do for him or vice versa."

Smith, whose two children Willow Smith and Jaden Smith are both entertainters, recently hit out at the "bullying" of young stars.
