The actor gives advice to newly engaged presenter Ellen DeGeneres


Will Smith is determined to make his marriage work, despite all the pitfalls in Tinseltown.

Jada Pinkett Smith, 36, became his 2nd wife 10 years ago and the couple have no intention of ever splitting up.

‘We’re going to be together one way or the other so we might as well try to be happy,’ Will, 39, told Ellen DeGeneres on her chat show.

‘Divorce just can’t be an option. It’s really that simple. And I think that’s the problem with LA – there are so many options. So a huge part of the success is that we just removed the other options.’

Ellen, 50, announced her engagement to actress Portia de Rossi, 35, on her show earlier this month. They began dating in December 2004.
