Women Try the #WillSmithChallenge Following ‘Red Table Talk’ Episode

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith haven’t had the smoothest marriage, but their bond as husband and wife is undeniable. During the Season One, part two premiere of Jada’s Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, the Ali actor shared the suave way he locked down the star after divorcing first wife, Sheree Fletcher.

“I said ‘Hey Jada, what’s up this is Will.’ She said, ‘Hey, how are you doing?’ I said, ‘Are you seeing anyone?’ And she said, ‘No.’ And I said, ‘Cool, you’re seeing me now,’” he shared.

The move clearly worked on the Baltimore actress, leading other women to give the bold move a try with the men in their lives.

Laid Bare Podcast host Oloni began the #WillSmithChallenge, asking women to text their crushes with the same message and wait for a response.

Check out the good, bad and awkward responses below.
