Will Smith almost one-upped his wife Jada Pinkett in the entanglement category and then some
The superstar actor revealed in his new GQ interview that he plotted with his intimacy coach (yes, Will Smith has an intimacy coach) ways to build a harem of women. Smith eventually realized that his coach was indulging his fantasy so he would see what a bad idea it was.
"During his first meeting with Michaela Boehm, an intimacy coach he spent years working with, Smith confessed that, if he could have anything in the world, he’d want a harem of girlfriends. “Who?” Boehm demanded, insisting he name specific women he’d want to invite to his harem. Misty Copeland, Smith replied. And Halle Berry too. For the rest of the session, the two of them researched specific women who could round out his aspirational harem. The plan was to then begin contacting the women.
"I don’t know where I saw it or some sh*t as a teenager, but the idea of traveling with 20 women that I loved and took care of and all of that, it seemed like a really great idea," he said,. "And then, after we played it out a little bit, I was like, ‘That would be horrific. That would be horrific.’ I was like, ‘Can you imagine how miserable?' What [the intimacy coach] was doing was essentially cleaning out my mind, letting it know it was okay to be me and be who I was. It was okay to think Halle is fine. It doesn’t make me a bad person that I’m married and I think Halle is beautiful. Whereas in my mind, in my Christian upbringing, even my thoughts were sins. That was really the process that Michaela worked me through to let me realize that my thoughts were not sins and even acting on an impure thought didn’t make me a piece of sh*t."
Does a harem of 20 women sound fun or just too much work?
