Jada Pinkett Smith on the reactions to her high-profile interviews
You've surely heard of the incident known as "the slap heard around the world."
Will Smith hit Chris Rock across the face live onstage at the Oscars last March 27 for making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
"Keep my wife's name out of your f--king mouth," Smith yelled as he sat back down.
Pinkett Smith discusses the iconic slap and tells exactly what was going through her thoughts at the time in an interview with Q's Tom Power about her thrilling new memoir, Worthy.
"First of all, I was really confused, because as I talk about in the book, Will and I hadn't called each other husband and wife since 2016," she said to Power.
"I wasn't there as his wife, even though the rest of the world didn't know, right?" Because we hadn't spent any time together.
'Oh, Will's in danger,' I thought. Something isn't quite right. Something has gone horribly wrong.'
"I was at a loss because it was so out of character." I had no idea what was going on. So all I had to do was ground myself and pay attention.... "I was as perplexed as everyone else."
