Will Smith's marriage has had "some stormy days".

The 'Focus' star - who wed Jada Pinkett Smith in 1997 - has admitted his relationship has "died" multiple times in the past.

He told The Sun newspaper: "Whatever you have is gonna die and you are gonna have to rebirth something new. You have to be willing to ride the waves.

"There's gonna be some flat days and some stormy days, and that has to be OK."

Meanwhile, Jada - who has daughter Willow, 14, and son Jaden, 16, with the 46-year-old actor - has previously said Will is more than just a husband to her.

She explained: "We used to have all these rules, [but] as you go on in your relationship, you just get into a flow.

"Will, to me, encompasses everything. It's almost as if calling him 'my husband' is too small of a word for what he means in my life... I think I had a very stuck idea of what a husband looks like, what a wife should be.

"Once I broke all of that, a whole new world opened for me and man, oh, man, I got to see him in all his glory. And so that's what it's evolved into. And I'm just ecstatic about it."
