Jada Pinkett Smith has opened up about her sex life with husband Will Smith.
The 50-year-old discussed their 'journey' on her chat show Red Table Talk, having met her husband when she was just 22.
Guest Gwyneth Paltrow was speaking about her healthy sex life, having recently celebrated her three-year wedding anniversary with producer Brad Falchuk, to which Pinkett Smith replied: "Me on the other hand, down and dirty in it, 26."
She continued: "It's hard. I mean, [the] thing that Will and I talk about a lot is the journey.
"I mean, we started in this at a very young age. You know, 22 years old, so that's why the accountability part really hit for me because I think you expect your partner to know, especially when it comes to sex.
"It's like, 'Well, if you love me, you should know'. You know what I mean? If you love me, you should read my mind. You know what I mean?"
Paltrow did know what she meant.
The 49-year-old replied: "That's a huge pitfall.
"Isn't it weird though? It's like someone doesn't read your mind, and we feel crushed. Like, we feel so disappointed.
"Why do we - where do we get that from?"

Pinkett Smith went on to say that she had grown out of the guessing game.
She explained: "I've grown out of it too. You tell me what you need. Tell me what you want. And on top of it, I know that I have to be accountable to do the same."
"And do you?" Paltrow asked.
"I really try," Pinkett Smith responded.
"It's uncomfortable, but it's deeply healthy, and I think around sex because it's something that we don't talk about, and there's so much fantasy around it."

"Will and I have NEVER had an issue in the bedroom. Thank you."
