The Matrix actress told Zampino that the beginning was rough, and that she was wrong to date Smith before his divorce from Zampino was finalized.
In the episode, Jada Pinkett Smith said, “Here’s the one thing I will say in hindsight, because I did not understand marriage, I didn’t understand divorce, I will say that I probably should’ve fell back.”
