5. When talking about her marriage in an interview, Pinkett Smith said that they are "private people" and that, "I will throw my career away before I let it break up our marriage. I made it clear to Will. I'd throw it away completely". (Wikipedia)

6. After the couple got married back in 1997, they had two children: Jaden Christopher Syre, born in 1998 and Willow Camille Reign, born in 2000. Jada is also stepmother for Trey Smith- Will's son from his previous marriage.

9. Will once said; 'You're so much stronger when your partner is strong. I honestly believe there is no woman for me but Jada. Of all the women I've met - and there've been a few - no one can handle me the way Jada does. Once you feel someone locked in on you, it's no contest. As fine as other women can be, as tempting sexually, I'm not going anywhere. This is it. I can't imagine what anyone else could offer.' (IMDB)

10. Jada was a little more open about her husband; 'Will is a very interesting, unique man, and I'll tell you why. He makes love like a woman. He loves to touch, massage and feel. He makes love like he's in touch with himself, who he is. And he's a very sensual, incredible lovemaker.' (IMDB)

11. The family reportedly reside in a 27,000 square foot home, on 100 acres, in Malibu.
