Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith recently took a seat on Arsenio Hall Show couch and shared a fun story about the first time her mom met her husband, Will Smith.

It was before they ever started dating, but Smith and Pinkett-Smith were familiar because she’d already auditioned to play his girlfriend on his hit show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. (They told her she was too short for the part!) She was shopping with her mom inside a Bullock’s department store in Los Angeles. They bumped into Smith and he came over to say hello. Watch the clip to find out what her mom said after he walked away.
