The Bad Boys star, who has built a lake in his LA home for wife Jada Pinkett Smith, said that he knew exactly how the need of building something lasting to show how much you love a person felt.


"When I was walking through the Taj Mahal, I kept saying, I am that man. In my home in Los Angeles, I've built a lake and called it Her Lake as a token of my love for my wife," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

"I totally understand that feeling of building a monument to show your love for your woman," he added.
