Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were two successful people before they married and became a star couple.

In Smith's recent autobiography, he revealed that Jada had given up on her acting career before they met.

Before Smith dated Jada, he was married to Sheree Zampino, and they had a son named Trey before they divorced in 1995.

At the time, Jada had acted in Jason's Lyric, and Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight.

Smith wrote that Jada was so frustrated with the film industry that she left and moved home to build a simple and quiet life.

Five days after receiving his divorce papers, Smith called Jada despite having not seen her for months.

He declared that they were dating on the call, and this brought Jada back to Hollywood.

After returning, Jada's career took off, and she starred in hit films like The Nutty Professor and Girls Trip.

Smith and Jada kept their relationship private for a while and used secret aliases to go on vacations and trips.
