Will Smith's Secret to Marriage

I've always been a huge fan of Will Smith. Back in the day, my one dream was to dance with him -- like he does in the "Miami" video -- all sexy to salsa music. Nowadays, I admire him for different reasons (though I still like looking at him). Despite his huge success, Will has managed to keep his feet on the ground without getting too big a head. His marriage to Jada Pinkett-Smith is one of Hollywood's strongest, 10 years and counting, and he has raised three pretty well-adjusted children.

So, what's his secret?

"What I found is divorce just can't be an option," Will told Ellen DeGeneres on her show Tuesday. "It's really that simple. And I think that's the problem with L.A. -- there are so many options. So a huge part of the success for [Jada] and I is that we just removed the other options."

Instead of running at the first sight of a glitch, these two actually try and make it work. "We're like 'listen, we're going to be together one way or the other so we might as well try to be happy,'" he said. 

It's shocking, really, but in a good way. I've always said that the one celebrity split that would crush me would be Will and Jada. Luckily, it doesn't look like I'll have to worry about that.
