Will Smith & Jada Pinkett-Smith's Rise to Ultimate Power Couple

What marriage troubles? With love, support – and a lot of hit movies – the twosome have maintained their reign as one of Hollywood's hottest unions

A BANKABLE STAR

Smith begins earning his reputation as "Mr. July," the king of summer movies, when he stars in the alien-invasion blockbuster Independence Day, which hits theaters over the July 4 weekend. It goes on to become the highest-grossing film of 1996, and at the time, the second-highest-grossing movie in history. Playing up his role as fighter pilot Steven Hiller, Smith, Pinkett and his son Trey (from Smith's previous marriage) present a united front at the film's L.A. premiere, dressing in fatigues.
