Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are Hollywood Elite – A-List if you will. Both have enjoyed hugely successful careers in Hollywood spanning nearly 3 decades.

Their marriage and family life have been the talk of the town this year, with Jada Pinkett Smith famously getting “entangled” in a love affair with a 27-year-old singer and confirming it publicly on her Facebook talk-show (more on that later!).

But who are the Smiths and what are they worth?

Will Smith, 52, started out in the industry as a rapper at only 16 years old. He launched a highly successful rap career with Jeff Townes, and they became known as DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.

Smith also starred on the notorious sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air for six seasons. The show propelled Will Smith into the Hollywood lifestyle, allowing him to take on more serious acting gigs in films such as Bad Boys (1995), Independence Day (1996), Men in Black (1997), and Hitch (2005.)

His role in the film Ali, depicting famous boxer Mohammed Ali, had him nominated for an Oscar, and years later he was nominated again for his role in The Pursuit of Happyness (2006.)

Jada Pinkett Smith, 49, has also enjoyed her own success in the Hollywood scene, making this duo a true power couple. She began her acting career in 1990, with a guest appearance on the sitcom True Colors.

The short-lived sitcom didn’t propel her into stardom but did lead to a more permanent role in the series A Different World from 1991-1993. Her career breakthrough came from her appearance in The Nutty Professor (1996), opposite Eddie Murphy.

Family Life

Jada met Will Smith in 1994 when she auditioned for the role of Will’s girlfriend in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Unfortunately, Jada was considered too short for the role, so it was nabbed by actress Nia Long. According to some reports, the attraction to Jada was immediate but Will didn’t act on it initially.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been married ever since, and they had two children together – Jaden and Willow Smith. Jada is a stepmother to Will’s son Trey, from his previous marriage to Sheree Zampino.

In April 2013, Pinkett Smith stirred up allegations that they were in an open relationship after she said in an interview with Huff Post Live’s Marc Lamont Hill: “You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay’. Because, at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man”.

She denied an open relationship and stated their relationship is built on trust and love, and that was all she meant by that statement.

Though their marriage has been strong over the years, it’s not without challenges.

You may recognize their home from daughter Willow Smith’s famous single ‘Whip my Hair’ which was filmed at the family home.

Will Smith is a huge fan of classic cars, and since he has more money than he knows what to do with, he’s built an impressive collection over the years.

His car collection includes a cherry-red 1965 Ford Mustang in mint condition. The very first Mustang was sold in 1965, making this car a hot commodity among car-aficionados.

Though Will loves classic cars, the family has their share of luxury whips too.
