Jada Pinkett Smith Tells Leno How She Gets Her Way With Husband Will (VIDEO)

Jada Pinkett Smith, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Jada Pinkett Smith has in recent years added writer, producer and director to her resume alongside acting. Being married to Will Smith has allowed the pair opportunities to hone stories together, which is a lot of fun for them. As she detailed on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), they clash sometimes.

"I think he's probably one of the best story structuralists there is," she said of her husband. "I'm very character-oriented, so sometimes we clash with story and character."

More specifically, while he will sometimes feel inclined to force a character into a great story, she has to believe it within that character's personality to engage in those story elements.

Sometimes her husband will come back at her with, "Forget the character. That's a hot story."

Luckily, when she's working on her own projects, Will is just along as more or less of a consultant. So Jada can simply reject his ideas. Sweetly at first, as wives do, and then more authoritatively when that doesn't work.

She knows how marriages are supposed to work, and that's why hers to Will Smith has been working for so long now.
