I am a big fan of actor Will Smith. While I wasn't crazy about his television series, Fresh Prince of Belair, I have really enjoyed several of his fantastic movies, including Men in Black and I Am Legend. So, I really hated to hear and read the reported Hollywood gossip about alleged problems in his 13 year marriage to fine actress Jada Pinkett Smith. I also hate it that, whether or not any of the rumors are true, the Hollywood press probably won't leave the couple alone.
We have discussed in this divorce blog before about all the stressors placed by Hollywood and by acting careers on celebrity marriages. Look, celebrity couples can have marital problems just like everyone else. And it may be true that many celebrity marriages do end in separation and divorce. But not all celebrity marriages end in separation or divorce. And it is equally true that it is a shame that Hollywood couples generally find it much more difficult than most other couples to address any potential issues in private.
Here's hoping that this fine acting couple will find some peace and happiness! What do you think? Don't you agree that, generally, the media spotlight could exacerbate any potential marital problems?
