Jada Pinkett Smith reveals exactly how she felt about her husband Will after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars last year.

On Thursday, November 16, the actress and author of her memoir "Worthy" sat down with The Breakfast Club to talk about numerous hot topics from her thoughts about the rumors swirling about Will and Duane Martin to Tyrese's suspicious phone call to her. During their conversation, DJ Envy asked Jada if the slap seen around the world helped save her marriage to Will. Although the couple was technically separated at the time, Jada said the situation strengthened their bond.

"I would say wat it definitely did is that it accelerated what was already in the process," Jada replied. "It was in that moment that I knew I was like, "Oh nah we gon do this together. I'ma be by your side and I know that I'll never leave your side.' It's funny because in an emotional crisis I didn't blink. I didn't blink and that's when I knew deep down inside 'That's your guy!' There's no getting away from him. You been trying. you don't wanna go nowhere. Stop it!"

Will Smith apologized for slapping Rock during the awards show last year, but Rock wasn't too receptive to it. Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that she and her husband have been separated for seven years ahead of the release of her new book. Despite their romantic split, the Smiths have not legally filed for divorce and don't have plans to legally separate at this time. Will told the New York Times last month that the memoir "kind of woke him up."
