Why us? That's what Jada Pinkett Smith has been wondering, after she and husband Will Smith became the latest star couple to be subject to rumors of marital strife.

Asked why the speculation won't go away, she tells French magazine Gala: "I have no idea! Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it's us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it."

She adds: "Will and I know the truth. We're waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over."





Jada, 40, acknowledges that she and Will, 43, spend lots of time apart. But it's always been that way, she adds.

"These rumors are completely untrue," she says. "I travel a lot because of my work, just like Will does. ... But our lifestyle hasn't changed. Before we had the kids, we were already far away from each other quite often because of separate projects."

Asked about the rumor that they no longer live under the same roof, she replies: "That's ridiculous. We've always lived together."



Things aren't about to slow down, either. Will is currently filming the M. Night Shyamalan movie After Earth with Jaden, 13. And this summer, Jada will be hitting the road with Willow, 11, who is going on tour as a singer.

"As a mom, I'm very proud to see them pursuing the things they love," says Jada. "We leave them enough space to express themselves and make their dreams come true. We leave them free to make their own choices. We try not to live through them."
