The 'Queen and Slim' actress has weighed in on her former husband's new relationship as the former married couple navigate co-parenting after calling it quits.

AceShowbiz - In a heartfelt interview with The Cut, Jodie Turner-Smith, 37, has shed light on her evolving relationship with ex-husband Joshua Jackson and his budding romance with Lupita Nyong'o. Turner-Smith, who filed for divorce from Jackson in October 2023, shared her hopes for positive co-parenting amidst the changes in their lives.

Turner-Smith and Jackson were married for four years and have a four-year-old daughter, Juno Rose Diana Jackson. Their split was marked by "irreconcilable differences," but both parties have shown a remarkable commitment to maintaining a good relationship for their daughter's sake.

Weeks after the split, Jackson, 45, went public with his new relationship with Nyong'o, 40. Pictures of the couple holding hands and sharing affectionate moments have surfaced, confirming their bond. Turner-Smith commented on the new relationship, saying, "Good for them. We need happiness in order to peacefully co-parent."

Taking a page from high-profile exes Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, Turner-Smith aims to achieve a similar harmonious co-parenting dynamic. "I'm trying to get us to the Gwyneth and Chris Martin level," she joked during the interview. She genuinely hopes that Jackson's happiness with Nyong'o will benefit their family unit.

Reflecting on her marriage and subsequent split, Turner-Smith revealed, "Sometimes things we really want to work just don't end up working. And that's OK. The most important thing is that you choose what's healthiest for you and your family and definitely your children."

Turner-Smith also spoke candidly about the public scrutiny their relationship faced, especially after they went public at the premiere of her film "Queen & Slim". She recalled the pain of becoming "Mrs. Joshua Jackson" at a time when she was trying to build her own identity in the industry. "I didn't understand how sinister that could end up being for me. It was taking away from a moment that I needed to have on my own," she said.

Turner-Smith is determined to provide her daughter with a peaceful and loving environment. "I just have to do everything that I can to set Juno up to win and to peacefully co-parent with someone whom I once loved very, very much," she emphasized. "Peace is what's needed right now. Grace is what's needed right now. Love, empathy, compassion."

As Joshua Jackson embarks on a new chapter with Lupita Nyong'o, Jodie Turner-Smith remains focused on creating a supportive and stable environment for their daughter. Her views on love, resilience, and co-parenting serve as a powerful reminder of the importance of family unity and personal growth, even in the face of change.
