The secret of Will Smith's successful marriage to fellow actor Jada Pinkett SMITH is "complete honesty" - even if it means criticising her clothing choices.

The star, 35, has been married to the MATRIX RELOADED beauty for nearly six years, and he's not afraid to have an argument with Jada - because it will help them in the long term.

He explains, "I think the secret to our marriage is complete and utter honesty.

"If I hate Jada's shoes I'll tell her. If she doesn't like a song of mine, she lets it be known. One big row is better than letting it fester under your skin, just getting to you.

"Of all the women I've met - and there've been a few - no-one can handle me the way she does. Once you feel someone locked in on you, it's no contest.

"As fine as other women can be, as tempting sexually as they can be, I'm not going anywhere. This is it. I can't imagine what anyone else would offer.

"We're strong, we're good."
