Will Smith has been staying away from the eyes of the media ever since the Oscar slap incident with Chris Rock. After being banned from the Oscars for the next decade, the actor has delayed most of his film projects, and this is causing him a substantial financial loss. Despite this, Will Smith has not done an interview or made any public appearance since the incident, and the fans are wondering how Will is doing post the controversy.

The actress also talked about the film King Richard,
“Our film was very special to us, and Venus and Serena [Williams] changed so many women’s lives, our lives.”

Will Smith’s apology to Chris Rock after the Oscars
From the two co-stars’ statements, it seems like Will is doing well and ignoring what the other celebrities and the media are saying about him. Previously, Will apologized to Chris Rock in an Instagram post a day after the incident.
“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
Hopefully, the star will make a comeback soon and give the public something good to talk about. There have been reports that the actor will be returning as Dr. Robert Neville in the sequel of the sci-fi film Legend. However, there has been no confirmation of the same, but fans do hope that Will Smith will be back soon.
