Will Smith says divorce was his fault

Will SmithWill Smith confesses that the pain he felt at the failure of his first marriage was the “most painful loss” he has had to endure, reports Orange News. The actor married Sheree Zampino in 1992 but they divorced in 1995, after having a son, Trey. Smith now says he’s learned the ups and downs of marriage since exchanging vows with actress Jada Pinkett Smith.  Looking back, Smith thinks he could have saved his first marriage if he’d made more of an effort.  He explained, “That (first marriage) is probably the most painful loss of my life. I quit. I could have fixed it. It really was not that bad. The Men in Black star admits to having some problems with his current wife, but says no matter what the problems are, the two are committed to their marriage and finding ways to resolve their issues.

    OMFG! Hilarious, Max!

    Why is he referred to as “the Men in Black” star…. he’s done better (and more recent) movies.

    I hear you Greg and Nancy could you cool the language. I’m a Christian and I hate seeing or hearing that language. Have some respect please. Thanks.

  5. cindy • November 7, 2009 @ 4:00 AM

    WOW……You learn and you grow. Congratulations man! Will Smith your the man.

  6. Trae • November 7, 2009 @ 8:45 AM

    Steve; are you serious? What language must Nancy cool? The word hilarious? The name Max? Or the letters OMFG?? Interpret at will…perhaps Nancy meant “Of My Faith; God.” Yup. I’m sure that was it. (And Max; that really WAS hilarious. Whenever that show came on my then 8 yr old, now 21 yr old just had to start wiggling to that beat; it still brings a smile to my face!)

    Its called “Life Lessons”. We all go through them and if not for these lessons how would we grow as an individual. The evolution of maturity gained from these lessons shapes us into who we are later in life.
    That was a pretty good paragraph of BS right….:P

  8. Joshua • November 7, 2009 @ 11:46 AM

    OMFG Steve, for the first time i will defend Nancy. When the people from your church stop coming to my door we will stop swearing. But we both know that isn’t going to happen. This is earth man. Same as second hand smoke, you cant really do much about it. If you don’t like swearing and it bothers you, you should probably just hide in your house and watch Treehouse from now on. LMAO!!

  9. Joshua • November 7, 2009 @ 11:51 AM

    P.S. respect is got givin, it’s earned.

  10. Monique • November 7, 2009 @ 1:36 PM

    Maxis Pow3rs – way to funny.
    Steve – grow some.

  11. tributegirl • November 7, 2009 @ 4:41 PM

    Sorry, Steve, but if you are offended by that sort of thing, this probably isn’t the site for you, that was extremely mild compared to some of what gets said on here.

  12. Nancy • November 7, 2009 @ 5:58 PM

    Trae: Hahahaha, that is exactly what I meant!

    Joshua: Thanks for the ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity! I agree with you. In fact, I believe I’ve had to give you the speech long ago about “respect has to be earned”, didn’t I? LOL.

    Tributegirl: Yeah, pretty mild compared to some of what I normally say! Steve should be here on a really good day! He’d probably have a stroke if he came back and read about “all that p@ssy” demigod talks about! L M F A O !!!

  13. demigod • November 7, 2009 @ 6:10 PM

    Will’s thoughts on his previous marriage..woulda,shoulda,coulda..but he doesn’t regret it. He knows it wasn’t going to last.

  14. tributegirl • November 7, 2009 @ 6:15 PM

    hahaha, well, I meant it was very mild compared to what a lot of people say, me included! Yeah, demigod’s comment would probably have made Steve faint!

  15. mandee • November 7, 2009 @ 6:36 PM

    im glad hes learned from his mistakes and i really hope these 2 love each other enough to be serious about working to keep it together. heading back to bed, feel grossss and my back is so sore.

  16. tributegirl • November 7, 2009 @ 6:41 PM

    I think he & Jada really seem to love each other. I think they will last.
    mandee, get lots of rest!

  17. Josh • November 8, 2009 @ 5:18 AM

    Obviously the Steve guy was just trying to piss you dumbasses off lol I mean you think anybody is actually that stupid? If so then you’re even stupid for thinking so

  18. kathy • November 8, 2009 @ 1:00 PM

    Okay everyone here we are talking about Will Smith and you three are all about Christianity and not. Anyways I to am a Christian and far from being totally righteous. So remember Christian friend judge not less you be judged by the same manner and also he who has no sin throw the first stone. You can’t win people over by damning them for their language. First of all if your a Will Smith fan or a fan of any movie star I am sure you watch lots of swearing and nudity. So stop judging and get your self right with God before you start pointing fingers at people who don’t even know Christ. Look who Christ made for his disciples, I am sure even when they followed after Him they still had fault. You need to look at yourself so you can get a heart like Christs and look beyond the swearing and look at the person and where they come from . Any ways about Will Smith I think its great he has realized his faults and wants to make it better in his second Marriage. iam so glad we get second chances in Life

  19. tributegirl • November 8, 2009 @ 2:42 PM

    Josh, there ARE actually people that stupid, unfortunately!

  20. chris • November 8, 2009 @ 5:01 PM

    why are we talking about religion…..some people need to find something better to do with there lifes it has nothing to do with this article. im a christian too and i dont give a crap about foul language steve is either a morman or borderline challenged.

  21. mandee • November 8, 2009 @ 5:40 PM

    Amen kathy ! i really wish i could be more religious, but i havent actually found a religion i agree with 100%. i can not be in a religion that is against gay marriage because i am for it. i cant be in a religion that chooses what i can and can not eat, what i can and can not sell, what i can and can not wear or drink. so, maybe im not meant to be religious?

  22. Nancy • November 8, 2009 @ 6:00 PM

    Kathy: “Okay everyone here we are talking about Will Smith and you three are all about Christianity and not.”

    Well, you rambled on more than anyone else here!

    Mandee: All that dictating what you can and cannot do, is not religion. It’s a bunch of control freaks who don’t know their @$$es from a hole in the ground! He loves you just the way you are…and the rest of us too.

  23. mandee • November 8, 2009 @ 7:14 PM

    thats what i figure ! how can god make so many different types of people if he only loves you if youre ONE TYPE of person? its crazy !

  24. Justin • November 9, 2009 @ 10:51 AM

    I am not of the christian faith, but you have to admire those very dedicated to helping others in a positive way. I think they mentioned “men in black” because a third one is in the works – though Will hasnt committed…to the flick as of yet. I wonder what the friend of the World’s Biggest Scientologist would have to say to this discusion.

  25. Justin • November 9, 2009 @ 10:54 AM

    Mandee, I think you should do some real research before complaining about other’s beliefs. Everyone follows some kind of religion, some times it’s simply consumerism that they preach to.

  26. mandee • November 9, 2009 @ 3:32 PM

    i was not complaining justin, so dont even try to start a fight with me over something you clearly misunderstood. i was simply stating **I** personally can not be in a religion that restricts whether or not i can eat meat with cheese, or meat at all, or whether or not i can drink or sell alcohol, or smoke or sell cigarettes, or that dictates what MY FEELINGS on homosexuality should be. as far as im concerned anyone that completely follows a faith 100% is just as bad as all those people they condemn for being different. i always heard that “judge not less you be judged by the same manner and also he who has no sin throw the first stone” so how does it make sense that these people can decide that its gods will for everyone to be straight? how can they decide that a specific group of people is going to hell based solely on their love for someone else, which isnt even THEIR CHOICE? even if i say forget about what i can and can not eat, drink or smoke…THAT alone is still a deal breaker for me. i already stated i KNOW god exists. he is there so when you die you can go to heaven (if you havent murdered or tortured anyone) he is not there to send you to hell for loving someone that has the same genitalia. people that ARE religious have always proved to be the most intolerant of any of the people on this earth. its actually quite sad and sickening if you ask me. how can you accept god without accepting everyone else? i didnt read the bible, but wasnt there one commandment something along the lines of love thy neighbour? with so much hatred from all of you “religious” people, do you really think any of YOU will be allowed to enter heaven when all is said and done? if youre breaking a commandment over something as silly as someones choice of religion or someones love interest?

  27. mandee • November 9, 2009 @ 3:41 PM

    a specific group of people ARE going to hell ***

  28. Shauna • November 9, 2009 @ 6:00 PM

    i like will an jada

  29. tributegirl • November 9, 2009 @ 6:18 PM

    LOL, which group, mandee?

  30. mandee • November 9, 2009 @ 6:24 PM

    well, mainly anyone that ISNT the religion everyone else is lmao. (also, the homosexuals :P)

  31. mandee • November 9, 2009 @ 6:26 PM

    by the way, did you like my rant 😛 lol.

  32. tributegirl • November 9, 2009 @ 6:54 PM

    Loved it! You know what? I consider myself a Christian, because I belive in God, Jesus, heaven and hell, the bible, etc, but I am non-denominational. There is not one organized religous group that I agree with 100%, so I just have my own beliefs and am quite content with that.

  33. Nancy • November 9, 2009 @ 7:07 PM

    I “belive” too (hahaha), I just don’t go to church or read the bible or associate myself with any group but, I do believe there is a God and a heaven and hell. I also believe that God will forgive anyone for anything as long as they forgive themselves.
