Jada Pinkett Smith spoke with Drew Barrymore about her marriage to Will Smith on Tuesday.

Jada Pinkett Smith says that she and Will Smith are in a stage of acceptance of one another. She discussed where the marriage between the two stands during an interview on the latest episode of The Drew Barrymore Show on Tuesday. The update comes after the bombshell story from earlier this year, at which time she revealed the two had been secretly separated for years.

“I think that one of those next stages in relationships is when you really learn how to accept yourself fully, you really learn how to accept your partner fully as well,” Jada told Barrymore as noted by Decider. “That’s been a journey all in itself.” She added that she’s learned to “love Will as he is” and herself. “We’re staying together forever,” she concluded.

Jada first revealed the rift in her relationship with Will while discussing the actor's infamous Oscars slap. She explained that Will referring to her as his "wife" caught her off guard. “We haven’t called each other husband and wife in a long time," she told Hoda Kotb while promoting her memoir, Worthy. She added: “When I was sitting at the Oscars, it clicked in. As soon as I was like, ‘Oh snap, you hit Chris?’ I was like, I’m riding with you. I didn’t come into this place as your wife, but I’m leaving here as your wife because we got a storm we’re going to have to deal with together. I am not gonna leave your side.”
