Will Smith pay for slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars? That could be. In any case, it’s off to a good start since, as several American media have revealed, including The Hollywood Reporter : two of the films he was to star in are no longer current.
Will Smith has been removed from the filming of Fast and Looseexpected on Netflix. He was to play the main role, that of a mafia boss victim of amnesia after an attack. The second concerns the next part of the saga bad boys. The fourth film was in the pipes: Sony, the producing company, had even sent the first pages of the scenario to the actor before changing his mind. The project is suspended for the time being. Will Smith did not react.
As a reminder, Will Smith was out of his hinges the night of the Oscars. Present with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith at the ceremony, after which he won the Oscar for best actor for his role in The Williams Method, the 53-year-old comedian took to the stage after Chris Rock joked about his wife’s hair. The latter, suffering from alopecia, chose to shave her head to counter the disease. The master of ceremonies had allowed himself a joke on the new look of Jada Pinkett Smith, attracting the wrath of a Will Smith out of him. On stage to settle accounts, the actor of I’m a legend sadly became one by slapping Chris Rock after his remarks.
Aware of the scope of his gesture, Will Smith later apologized on his Instagram account: “My behavior last night at the Oscars was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but one joke about Jada’s health issue was too much for me and I reacted emotionally. I apologize Chris. I went too far, I was wrong. […] My actions do not reflect who I am.Despite those words, the dad-of-two alienated many people. In 2015, Will Smith was the hero of Alone against all. It is the reality which, for once, seems to join the fiction.
