Jada Pinkett Smith said she thinks women, generally, find married men more attractive because of “security issues.”
Although the Hollywood star admits that couples need a reasonable level of “security” to stay happy together, she insists that feature has been bastardized and should not be condoned.
The 47-year-old star who is married to “Men in Black” actor Will Smith – explained further on her views about why people might find the idea of dating married men so appealing.
Speaking in an interview with Extra, Jada said: ‘In my opinion, women who are attracted to married men—specifically married men with power—tend to do so because it gives them a sense of stability and security.
She continued, ‘This excuse doesn’t make it right but it’s obvious that most women [in the game] don’t really care what people think…They’re drawn to it because it offers them a leeway—some sort of security for their survival.
‘For example, such men [in the olden days] could build a beautiful log cabin, go out and kill a lion and bring it to the house so you can eat…In this modern time, women (young and old) desire well-furnished houses.
‘Again, back in the day, men from the other village would come in and he would whoop some ass. That’s the feeling. It’s simply “primal”.
Recently, the “Girls Trip” star revealed on social media that she felt pressured to tie the knot with her now-husband Will earlier on in their relationship but admits she declined because she had “never seen a happy marriage”.
In her words: “I never wanted to get married. But my mother was like, ‘You have to get married’”
She added, ‘My mom is so old school. Will also wanted a family so that—kinda—prodded me a bit.
‘“All right, maybe it’s something I should do,’ I said at the time… I had never seen a happy marriage. I adored Will, I f***ing adored him, but I just didn’t want to be married.”
Jada previously explained that she enjoys a “very strong bond” with Will now than they did at the start of their relationship.
She said: “It just felt like loss. There was too much concentration on what was happening externally, and the family unit itself wasn’t getting the attention and care that I felt we needed.
“Will’s like, ‘We just came from Oslo, going to the  Nobel Peace Prize ceremony [for Barack Obama] as a family, you’ve got a big house with a lake – isn’t this amazing?!’And I’m like, ‘No’. By the time my 40th [birthday] came, I was like, ‘I can’t do it anymore.’ I was so depleted.”
