Pinkett Smith said of the secret to their long marriage: "I think, you know, one of the things I had to learn was that you really have to go off and find what makes you happy for yourself.

"Two partners have to go find their happiness and come together as two happy people and then you help build on that happiness but what you can’t expect is for your partner to make you happy.

"All these expectations of people being certain things for you, you know, you’ve got to come to the table with your own happiness, with your own joy, so that you guys can share that together.

"And I really had to learn that. We’ve got to deal with our traumas, we’ve got to deal with our bullshit and really just come together as whole people and then really support that and add to that.
