As per a report by Entertainment Weekly, in a preview for The Drew Barrymore Show posted on November 28, the 52-year-old opened up about being entirely committed to her marriage.
"I feel like maybe your and his shadow separated in a way in this book, whether they stay together forever or not," Barrymore says in the preview. "It sounds like you’re staying together forever."
"We’re staying together forever," Pinkett Smith confirms. "I tried. We tried," in reference to the couple’s several years-long separation.
The news comes after the actress confessed that she and the Men in Black actor had been separated since 2016 in her memoir, Worthy.
Speaking of the book during an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, the actress stated that she and Will were "still figuring things out," before saying: "We’ve been doing some really heavy-duty work together. We just got deep love for each other and we are going to figure out what that looks like for us."
She also mentioned that her children helped her build her confidence.
"My children, they’re little gurus. They’ve taught me a deep sense of self-acceptance," she told the outlet. "They love every part of me. The level of love, unconditional love that they have for me and their dad. And it's one thing to want to be the person that gives that unconditional love. And then there's, to be the recipient of that."
After dropping the bombshell, Pinkett Smith elaborated on the couple's set-up during an interview with Hoda Kotb on TODAY.
"First of all, I’m really shocked, because mind you, I’m not there. We haven’t called each other husband and wife in a long time," she told the host.
When questioned about why they don't get divorced if they have been living separate lives, the answer is that they simply don't want to.
"We don’t want to because we love our family and we love each other," she said. "You know, it’s more of a life partnership. Now 10 years from now, Hoda? Who knows."
When speaking of their separation, she said: "Why it fractured... that - that’s a lot of things... By the time we got to 2016, we were just exhausted with trying. I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be.
"I made a promise that there will never be a reason for us to get a divorce. We will work through... whatever. I just haven't been able to break that promise," she said.
Elaborating on the matter during a press event for Worthy, she also added: "The truth of the matter is I'm not leaving Will's side and he's not going to leave mine. We've been on a powerful quest. And I'm happier than I've ever been."
So I guess the pair are in it for the long haul - good luck to them!
