"As long as Will can look himself in the mirror and be OK, I'm good."

Jada Pinkett Smith got candid about her 18-year marriage to husband Will Smith during a visit to The Howard Stern Show Wednesday.

Telling host Howard Stern that Will is free to do whatever he wants, Pinkett Smith said that she doesn't keep tabs on her husband out of trust. "You gotta trust who you're with. At the end of the day, I'm not here to be anybody's watcher," she said plainly. "I'm not his watcher. He's a grown man."

Stern went on to clarify that, though the couple have "psychological freedom" in knowing that they're free to date whomever, neither of them choose to act on it.

"I trust that the man that Will is is a man of integrity," shared Pinkett Smith. "He's got all the freedom in the world, and as long as Will can look himself in the mirror and be OK, I'm good."

The Gotham actress also revealed that the pair open up to each other about co-star crushes, saying: "You have to, in this business, because I'm gonna know anyway!"

She further explained that it's unrealistic to think that a man's eyes won't wander. "I'm not the kind of woman that believes that a man is not gonna be attracted to other women. I'm just not that girl. It's just not realistic."

She added: "Just because your man is attracted to another woman does not mean he doesn't love you. That's not what it means. And it doesn't mean he's gonna act on it. If your man can’t really see another woman's beauty, how the hell is he gonna see yours?"
