It can be said with certainty that in recent months the life of Will Smith it wasn’t all roses and flowers. After the now iconic slap given globally to Chris Rock on the Oscars Night 2022 stage, the actor had also taken a step back from his exposure on social networks, returning active on the various platforms only a few weeks ago.
Moreover, in recent months, the subject had attracted the attention of Hollywood celebrities, with more or less well-known celebrities who, when asked about the episode, felt the need to have a voice in. In the following months, once his resignation and the provisions of the Academy formalized, the actor then published an intense message of apology addressed to Chris Rock and his family.
Among the most significant passages we can read:
“Everything is confusing. I tried to contact Chris, and the message I got from him is that he’s not ready to talk about it yet, and when he is, he’ll contact me. What I’m going to tell you, Chris, is that I’m going to apologize to you. My behavior has been unacceptable and I’m here whenever you feel ready to talk.
There’s no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave at the time. […] So I want to apologize to Chris’ mom and her family. What I did is probably irreparable“.
A few months later, Smith now seems ready to start rebuilding his popularity. Among the rumors that have come to support it in recent days, another rather unexpected has been added.
It’s about his ex-wife Sheree Zampino, married to him from 1992 to 1995 and mother of his eldest son, Trey Smith. Asked by the tabloid Daily mailthe woman expressed her hope that the public will give the famous actor another chance:
“I hope people can allow Will to be human. I hope so with all my heart because I support him, we are on good terms. You cannot heal without forgiveness. He has been present since the age of 16 in Willy, the Prince of Bel-Air. He’s really generous and puts a lot of love into everything he does, he’s a really nice man. He has a heart connection with his fans“.
We’ll see if there are any further developments regarding Will Smith’s currently frozen projects in the coming months. After all, as his career has taught us, someone like him is always ready with an ace in the hole.
