This is the first time the "King Richard" producer has spoken out about the altercation between Smith and comedian Chris Rock.
The actor recently visited Tougaloo College in Jackson to speak with mass communication and performing arts students.
“I’m going to give y’all a hint,” Smith told fans in a clip announcing the news.
The actor joked about Will Smith's emphatic directive at last year's Oscars as he gave his Golden Globes speech accepting a lifetime achievement award.
The actor said the moment shocked him after an "ad-libbed" scene.
The “King Richard” actor is sharing what he’s learned since that Oscars night that was unforgettable for all the wrong reasons.
"Why you trying to Oprah me?" the "Emancipation" actor joked to "The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah as he revealed what he's learned since the slap.
"If someone is not ready, I would absolutely respect that and allow them their space to not be ready," the actor said in an interview.
The actor has her eye on the Oscar winner for a very specific comical flick.
A-listers are apparently letting bygones be bygones in Smith's Oscars slap saga.
