The actor was spotted leaving the set of his upcoming film Collateral Beauty in New York City today, and obviously, everyone was waiting to hear what the star had to say about the host’s remarks during last night’s show, but instead, Smith just flashed his famous smile to paparazzi while shooting the peace sign (or chuckin’ the deuces to all the drama).
So what does that tell us? Smith doesn’t seem to be worried at all about what the comedian said during the awards show.
(Plus, does he really want to get into one little fight that scares his mother into making him move with his aunt and uncle in Bel-Air, again? No.)
Regardless, Rock’s monologue at the top of the awards show last night was one zinger after another.
The host didn’t waste any time before diving into the highly talked about diversity issue with the nominations this year, and in turn, slammed Jada Pinkett Smith and her hubby for their stance on the matter.
“What happened this year? People went nuts. Spike [Lee] got mad. Jada went mad. Will went mad. Everyone went mad!” Rock said about all the celebs wanting to protest the Oscars. “Jada said she’s not coming. I was like, ‘Isn’t she on TV show?’ Jada’s gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna‘s panties. I wasn’t invited!”
He continued, “Her man Will was not nominated for Concussion. I get it. You get mad. It’s not fair that Will was this good and didn’t get nominated. You’re right,” he said. “It’s also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for Wild Wild West!”
Well, Will may not have said anything about all that, but we already know that actions speak louder than words.
