All bets are off when Will Smith plays games with his family. The Suicide Squad actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, visited The Tonight Show on Wednesday where she told host, Jimmy Fallon, about her husband’s competitive nature.
“I compete with myself, but Will, on the other hand, he’s tough,” she said of her husband of 18 years.
The family, which includes the couple and their children, Jaden and Willow, like to play board games like Monopoly, Scrabble, and Apples to Apples at Christmas, a tradition that Will has since been cut from.
“He’s been banned from family games several times. He gets so competitive,” she explained. “It’s like, ‘You have to remember we’re your family. You love us. It’s Christmas and you’re about to ruin it.’”
Plus, the Oscar-nominated actor isn’t afraid to play dirty.
“He kind of cheats,” Jada insisted. “I know he steals money out of the bank just to make sure he wins. I’m telling you, Will is so competitive it’s ridiculous.”
Later in the evening, Jada got a chance to show off her competitive side during a game of “Famous Face-Off” where she teamed up with Fallon against Bravo host Andy Cohen and Roots frontman, Tariq Trotter.
Jada started strong, easily guessing Will’s face in addition to several other stars, but she faltered when faced with Vladimir Putin and Bono. Watch the clips now to see who won!
