Jada Smith and her famous hubby, Will Smith, have to deal with divorce rumors on a near constant basis.

Jada Smith met Will on the set of his long-running series, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, when she auditioned for a role as his love interest.

She didn't get the part, but she stole Will's heart.

Jada Pinkett became Jada Smith shortly after, in 1997.

Since then, Will and Jada Smith have had to deal with rumors about their marriage.

Just yesterday, rumors were swirling of a divorce by the end of summer.

The rumors don't bother Jada Smith, though. To her, things could be a lot worse.

Jada Smith told American Way magazine, "Every year there’s a new one. And I’m like, ‘Here we go. Get ready. Are ya holdin’ on tight?'"

Of course, Jada Smith isn't saying that her marriage is perfect.

She said, "Marriages go through shifts. And relationships go through shifts because in life, things shift. So people are automatically like, ‘What’s going on? They must be getting a divorce.’ Well, no. But when people feel those shifts and there’s a mystery, they have to fill it with something."

So true. As long as these two are married, it's likely there will be new rumors all the time.

But, to Jada Smith, it's way better than what others have to deal with on a daily basis. Rumors are nothing compared to real-life problems.

She said, "If you really want to know,I’m thankful for the Hollywood scrutiny, that that’s my problem. There are mothers out there losing their sons, their husbands, their daughters."

She added, "I’m blessed. So scrutinize me. I’ll take that any day over what the majority of my people are dealing with on a daily basis. I dare not complain. Hollywood scrutiny has nothing on what I’ve survived just to be here."

That's a great way to look at it!

What do you think of Jada Smith's attitude toward the constant divorce rumors?
