Will Smith Claims he fell in Love with Stockard Channing During First Marriage

 In his new memoir, Will Smith says he fell in love with his costar Stockard Channing during his first marriage.

The pair appeared in Six Degrees of Separation together.  He said, “Sheree and I were in the first few months of our marriage with a brand-new baby, and for Sheree, I can imagine that this experience was unsettling, to say the least. She’d married a guy named Will Smith, and now she was living with a guy named Paul Poitier. And to make matters worse, during shooting, I fell in love with Stockard Channing.” He continued, saying, “After the film wrapped, Sheree and Trey and I moved back to L.A. Our marriage was off to a rocky start. I found myself desperately yearning to see and speak to Stockard.” This isn’t the first time Will Smith has talked about method acting and his feelings for the actress.
