Will Smith, speaking about Oscar’s slap
Will Smith opened up to Trevor Noah about the now-famous punch during the Oscars in March, during an interview that aired on Monday evening in “The The Daily Show.”
As he promoted his movie “Emancipation,” Smith called”Emancipation “a terrible night” and added that the actor “lost the opportunity” when Smith ran off the stage and beat the host Chris Rock.
“And I guess that’s what I’d say is that you never be able to tell what someone else experiences,” Smith said. “I was going through something the night before. That’s not to say that this excuses my actions.”
Smith stated that the thing that was most hurtful for Smith was that his actions had made it “hard for others.”
