‘Is Will Smith gay?’ is a question that most people have asked at one point or another. Today, we’re going to attempt to answer it.
Rumors have circulated for years that Big Willy may be keeping a secret about his sexuality. There have even been rumors that both Will and Jada Pinket-Smith are gay, and that Jaden Smith is gay, too. Some day the couple are in agreement to pose as a straight married couple for the sake of their images.
Did Will Smith’s ex wife catch him having gay sex?
Alexis Arquette once posted on Facebook that Will Smith’s first marriage to Sheree Zampino ended when she walked in on him getting it on with Benny Medina.
Arquette quickly deleted the post after it began to garner attention, and ultimately, she posted no proof to back up her claims. However, since then, rumors have continued to circulate that Will Smith might be gay or at least might swing both ways.
Will Smith – Is he just submissive?
Smith’s seeming submission to his wife Jada don’t help quell the rumors that he’s gay. However, it has to be said that this is somewhat homophobic in and of itself – the idea that gay men are submissive and feminine is an outdated trope. There are all kinds of gay men, including dominant and masculine ones.
Will being under Jada’s thumb and being willing to suffer public humiliation at her behest is not at all indicative that he is gay. He might just like a strong female figure who dominates him.
Some people wonder ‘Is Will Smith bisexual?” Now that’s a different question!
Smith refused a gay kiss on the set of Six Degrees of Separation
While it doesn’t prove anything in and of itself, Smith once blew up on the set of Six Degrees of Separation when he had to kiss co-star Anthony Rapp. Note: Rapp later acused Kevin Spacey of sexual assault. He refused the kiss and managed to convince the director to shoot the back of his head.
Some would say this is clear evidence that Smith isn’t gay, while others would claim it’s possibly evidence that he is and is trying to suppress it. We’re not going to play armchair psychologists here; this isn’t evidence of anything and the fact it can be taken both ways proves it.
Will Smith’s dating life – Who came before Jada?
Believe it or not, Will Smith had a dating life before he met Jada, who became his wife. Let’s look into the Fresh Prince’s past romantic history and see what went down.
A Budding Romance
Before Will Smith became a household name, he had a brief romance with actress Garcelle Beauvais in the late 1980s. These two met on the set of the television show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” where Garcelle had a guest appearance. Their relationship was short-lived but marked the beginning of Will’s journey into the world of high-profile dating.
In 1992, Will Smith married Sheree Zampino, whom he met at a taping of the television show “A Different World.” The couple welcomed their son, Trey Smith, into the world later that year. However, their marriage faced challenges as Will’s career skyrocketed, and they eventually divorced in 1995. Despite their split, Will and Sheree have maintained a positive co-parenting relationship, often praising each other for their commitment to their son.
A Hollywood Power Couple
Jada Pinkett Smith Will Smith’s most well-known relationship is, of course, with his current wife, actress Jada Pinkett Smith. The couple first met in 1994 when his would-be wife auditioned for a part in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Although she didn’t get the part, the two formed a connection that would eventually blossom into a romantic relationship.
Will and Jada married in 1997. They have since become one of Hollywood’s most enduring power couples. The Smith’s have two children, Jaden and Willow Smith, who have followed in their parents’ footsteps with successful careers in the entertainment industry.
Over the years, Will and Jada have been open about the challenges and triumphs in their relationship. In 2020, they made headlines when they addressed rumors surrounding their marriage on Jada’s Facebook Watch show, “Red Table Talk.” Their candid conversations about love, commitment, and personal growth have resonated with fans and earned them admiration for their honesty and vulnerability.
Will Smith – Is he an LGBTQ+ ally?
Will Smith has shown support for LGBTQ+ rights and issues over the years in various ways. Here are some instances where he has demonstrated his support:
Donating to marriage equality campaigns: In 2012, Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, donated $100,000 to support marriage equality campaigns in the United States. This donation was made during the lead-up to the 2012 election when four states had marriage equality initiatives on their ballots.
Supporting his children’s self-expression: Will Smith has been supportive of his children’s freedom to express themselves, regardless of traditional gender norms. This support has been particularly evident in the case of his son, Jaden Smith, who has been known for his gender-fluid fashion choices. Will’s encouragement of his children’s self-expression sends a positive message about the importance of individuality and embracing one’s identity.
Speaking out against discrimination: In 2016, Will Smith took a stand against the Academy Awards for their lack of diversity and representation, boycotting the event alongside his wife. While this action was mainly focused on racial discrimination, it still emphasized the importance of inclusivity and representation in the entertainment industry, which includes the LGBTQ+ community.
Although Will Smith may not be a vocal activist for LGBTQ+ rights, his actions have shown that he supports equality and inclusivity for all. By advocating for his children’s self-expression and making financial contributions to support marriage equality, Will has demonstrated his commitment to fostering a more accepting and equal society.
So, is Will Smith gay or not?
Rumors continue to circulate, but they’re just that; rumors. Smith has never come out as gay and both of his marriages have been to women. We’re going to maintain that Will Smith is straight until some solid evidence comes out.
