Smith took over hosting duties for his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, in a special episode of Facebook Watch's "Red Table Talk" on Sunday, during which he and Hart opened up about their biggest parenting mistakes and life lessons they've learned from their families.

"It was so tough, because this is when I started to realize how my fame has an impact on my household," Hart said.
Smith said he and his wife realized they need to tell their kids "everything" themselves when it comes to internet gossip about the famous couple. "We just try to get out ahead of it so the kids know before the world knows," he added. "We've had a couple that get to the kids before we had a chance and that's excruciating.”
