The “Aladdin” actor praised his family for being open on the show.
Disney’s live-action Aladdin film hits theaters on Friday which means that Will Smith, who portrays the role Genie, is in full promotion mode. Following his appearance on Ellen yesterday, Smith was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he talked about his blue-bodied role, as well as what’s it’s been like seeing the women his family star in their Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk.
Smith admitted that the sensitive topics are a tad f-putting for him. “No, I don’t watch it,” he quipped on Tuesday. “They tellin’ all our business!” All jokes aside, Smith is proud what his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, his daughter Willow Smith, and his mother-in-law Adrienne Banfield-Norris have accomplished with the show. “It’s actually fantastic, the episodes I could bear,” he said. “And they sit down, and it’s really wide open, raw conversation across the generations about a cornucopia topics.”

Kimmel couldn’t help but joke, “Yeah, right…even a pornocopia topics, some people might say.” The talk show host was referencing this past Monday’s episodes where the women talked about pornography. Willow shared that she first watched porn as a child and Jada revealed that prior to her relationship with Will, she had a “little porn addiction.”
“Porn addiction I think was the topic,” Smith replied. “Yeah, there was one those. They all go into a blur, you know?” So out the three women, what story was worse to hear: his wife, his daughter, or his mother-in-law? “It’s all bad,” he said.
