They said their "I dos" in a secret New Year's Eve ceremony in 1997. Come December, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will celebrate 15 years as husband and wife.
"Fifteen years! It's amazing, isn't it?" Pinkett Smith told PEOPLE at the New York City premiere of Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted recently.
"I was just doing the Today show, and there was a couple there who was celebrating 59 years of marriage, and I thought to myself, '15 years ain't nothing, you know?' It's just the beginning. That's the way I look at it."

For Will Smith and his wife of nearly 15 years, Jada Pinkett Smith, it's all about being supportive.
"We make the effort to always put the family first," Smith told PEOPLE at last week's Men in Black III premiere in New York City. "Being there for each other and being present with our kids is the most important thing. I take being a parent very seriously."
The couple are parents to Trey, 19, Jaden, 13, and Willow, 11, and Will flew back to L.A. from New York nearly every weekend while filming Men in Black III.

It was a reunion of old (and news) pals when Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett, Chris Rock and David Schwimmer gathered for the photo call for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted at the Carlton Hotel in Cannes.
"Schwim," Rock (who plays Marty the zebra) yelled when arriving at the same time as his Melman the giraffe costar. But it was Stiller who unknowingly doubled up on "Schwim" as his Alex the lion character photo-bombed the two as they made their way down the Croisette.

Jada Pinkett Smith and daughter Willow headed out to the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sunday afternoon to support filmmaker pal Bess Kargman at the premiere of the ballet documentary, First Position.
Willow was clad in a black and tan leather motorcycle jacket, worn over a print T-shirt and dark leggings with combat boots. The singer capped off her rock 'n' roll look with a pink mini-mohawk.
Although the mother-daughter duo didn't do any interviews, posing for photos must have worn Willow out, because according to an onlooker, "She looked bored and sleepy as she waited for her mom to catch up inside the theatre lobby."
Once inside the theatre, the Smith women kept a seemingly low profile, as they were joined by a couple of unrecognizable guests – one of whom complimented Jada on her appearance.
"Before the screening, Willow kept mostly quiet, while her mom chatted with one of the guests," the source says. "Willow checked her phone once when they first sat down, but otherwise kept it in her pocket. On a few occasions, Jada leaned in to whisper to Willow and kissed her twice on the cheek, but as the lights dimmed, Willow shyly pulled away."

The carpet will be red hot – with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson,Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves, Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, and new parents Emma Heming and Bruce Willis, turning this year's Cannes Film Festival into a two-week A-lister date night.
Add in Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban – and the possibility of a Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith sighting – and you might forget they also show movies at the world's most glamorous film event.
The 65th Cannes fest, which will run from May 16 to 27, formally announced its schedule in Paris on Thursday, and organizers haven't stinted on star power.

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."

Despite reports of trouble in their marriage, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were caught smooching Friday in Philadelphia – on the Jumbotron!
Will, 43, and Jada, 40, were "couply and cuddly," says fellow spectator Becky Haring, 22, of Birdsboro, Pa., who sat a few rows away from the famous pair at the Philadelphia 76ers-Miami Heat game Friday night. "They were having a good time," she says.
Philadelphia-native Smith danced during the game (even though his team lost 84-78) and at one point planted a wet one on his wife for the "kiss cam."
The night out was a family affair for the basketball-loving couple, who posed courtside with kids Willow, 11, and Jaden, 13.

After weeks of rumors and speculation about his split from Jennifer Lopez – and talk of infidelity breaking them up – Marc Anthony finally addressed the juiciest rumor himself.
He did not have an affair with Jada Pinkett Smith, his costar on the recently canceled HawthoRNe.
When asked whether there was infidelity in his marriage, Anthony told Nightline, "No, absolutely not." And the Smith rumor specifically? "When something like that happens, it's laughable," he said. "We've been friends for years. Jada, Jennifer, me, [Will Smith], for years."
