Will Smith Admits Speaking to Intimacy Coach About Halle Berry Attraction

Will Smith admitted to speaking to an intimacy coach about his desire to have 20

girlfriends in a new interview with GQ.


When describing his initial discussion with the intimacy coach, the actors claimed he

developed the urge as a teenager and listed some of the women he would want in his

theoretical harem. Two of the women included ballet dancer Misty Copeland and

actress Halle Berry.

“I don’t know where I saw it or some s*** as a teenager, but the idea of traveling with

20 women that I loved and took care of and all of that, it seemed like a really great

idea,” Smith said. “And then, after we played it out a little bit, I was like, ‘That would

be horrific. That would be horrific.’ I was like, ‘Can you imagine how miserable?’ What

[the intimacy coach] was doing was essentially cleaning out my mind, letting it know it

was okay to be me and be who I was. It was okay to think Halle is fine. It doesn’t make

me a bad person that I’m married and I think Halle is beautiful. Whereas in my mind,

in my Christian upbringing, even my thoughts were sins. That was really the process

that [the intimacy coach] worked me through to let me realize that my thoughts were

not sins and even acting on an impure thought didn’t make me a piece of s***.”

During the interview, Will Smith also addressed his marriage to Jada Pinkett and

her “entanglement” with singer August Alsina. While Smith grew up witnessing

conventional marriages, he stated that Jada’s upbringing was different and that she

witnessed unorthodox relationships while she was growing up. The actor lightly added

that he and his wife have both had extramarital affairs during their marriage.

“Jada never believed in conventional marriage…Jada had family members that had an

unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how

I grew up,” he said. “There were significant endless discussions about, what is

relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple? And for the large

part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as

the only relational perfection. We have given each other trust and freedom, with the

belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison.

And I don’t suggest our road for anybody. I don’t suggest this road for anybody. But

the experiences that the freedoms that we’ve given one another and the unconditional

support, to me, is the highest definition of love.”
