Will Smith once recalled on “The Graham Norton Show” how he once pranked his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
Smith recalled, according to Insider, that at the time Jada was set to meet members of his “very religious” family for the first time. And his grandmother Gigi had not been familiar with Jada’s work.
“My grandmother Gigi is all the way down with Jesus. Because she didn’t know who Jada was, I put on a movie of hers and worked out that by the time Jada arrived my grandmother would be watching the love scene,” Will said.
“When she walked in, my grandmother was in the middle of the scene and she looked up and said to Jada, ‘When I was growing up people didn’t have to take their clothes off to make a movie.'”
The I Am Legend star later added that Jada “took him aside later that night” and asked what he had been thinking playing the prank.
“I said, ‘I promise you it’s funny, maybe not now, but one day this is going to provide us with years of joy.’ We have been together for 27 years and she literally hasn’t chuckled once!” Will told the show.
