"It is. No, no but it works out," Smith continues with a laugh, referencing the couple's now-viral Red Table Talk video from earlier this summer, where Pinkett Smith admitted she'd gotten into a romantic "entanglement" with actor August Alsina during a time when the Smiths were privately separated.
The image of the Hollywood icon sitting teary-eyed through the discussion took the internet by storm soon after, with his crying face generating a tidal wave of memes. However, it seems the couple is now refuting that Smith was crying at all.
"He wasn't crying!" Pinkett Smith insists, before the Fresh Prince jumps in to explain, "No, it was midnight. We were shooting at midnight, 'cause we were trying to rush to go to the airport in the morning!"
Later, Pinkett Smith admits she should've gone with her intuition to "reshoot the whole damn thing," but Smith seems jovial about the outcome, teasing his wife that "it played out; everybody's like, 'Poor Will.' They think I'm sad! No, it's like, they love they selves some Will."
Thankfully, the couple seems to be in a better place these days, as the video pivots to show them accepting the Legacy of Laughter award from Robin Williams' son on behalf of mental health nonprofit Bring Change 2 Mind.
