Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are probably the best-known celebrity couple. Their union is robust enough that they are often busy shooting movies simultaneously across the United States (Jada, currently starring in A Wrinkle in Time, recently addressed fans about their commitment to San Diego, California, saying: “San Diego needs us. We are coming.”).
In other words, Will and Jada Smith are engaging in one of America’s favorite pastimes: slaving over their interviews. Indeed, they frequently appear in the same space — courtesy of publications that often promote other projects, it’s very common for Will and Jada to be asked about the same things. Smith’s response, usually involving the phrase “there’s no need to talk about it,” is one of the reasons the Smiths are now frequently singled out for ridicule. Fans now make a concerted effort to turn their interviews into one continuous session of mocking – and the more repetitive and wearying the interview, the better. Here are a few examples of celebrities who got accustomed to this cycle — and frankly, just given how rare it is to turn a spotlight onto someone as engaging as Jada and Will Smith, we suspect they’re not the only ones.
