While she was sleeping… he took pictures! Jada Pinkett Smith shared a steamy secret about her husband of 17 years, Will Smith, this past weekend to her 7 million plus followers on Facebook.

The Gotham actress, 43, posted a photo of her nude body from behind, semi-covered in white sheets. "I discovered the sexiest secret the other day," Pinkett Smith wrote in the Nov. 1 post. "My husband takes pics of me in my sleep. He has a whole stash he revealed to me and I really enjoyed getting a glimpse of myself through his eyes. I had to share one with you guys."

She added: "Life is art. Life is beauty. J."

The parents to Jaden, 16, and Willow, 14, have dealt with rumors surrounding their allegedly troubled marriage for years, which both parties have laughed off. In recent months, the stars have directly addressed the chatter about an allegedly open marriage while reaffirming their love for each other in public.

Pinkett Smith told Net-A-Porter's The Edit this past July that her husband, to her, "encompasses everything." She mused: "It's almost as if calling him 'my husband' is too small of a word for what he means in my life… I think I had a very stuck idea of what a husband looks like, what a wife should be. Once I broke all of that, a whole new world opened for me and man, oh, man, I got to see him in all his glory. And so that’s what it’s evolved into. And I'm just ecstatic about it."

With two teenage kids — who've made headlines of their own — living under their roof, the actress later told Health magazine that she and her 46-year-old husband try to rev up their romance with sexy date nights. "A lot of times, we'll do it at the house because when we go out it can be a little hectic," she told the mag. "So we have different places around our yard where we like to set up a little Arabian tent, pillows, wine and cheese, candlelight. Will likes really thought-out productions."
