Jada Pinkett Smith broke her silence on husband Will Smith‘s slap attack on comedian Chris Rock at this year’s Oscars on the latest episode of her Red Table Talk series.
Speaking directly to the camera, Pinkett Smith said, “My deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile.”
She added, “The state of the world today, we need ’em both.
"And we all actually need one another more than ever.
"Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that’s keep figuring out this thing called life together.”
And while she didn’t speak specifically about the incident that got her Oscar-winning husband banned from any Academy events for the next decade following the March 27 incident.
Pinkett Smith spent the rest of the half-hour episode discussing her battle with alopecia.
She said 147 million people live with the condition that causes their hair to fall out, describing the stress of having your hair grow and then disappear as daughter Willow, who has shaved her head voluntarily, and mother Adrienne Banfield Norris looked on.
The episode also featured a series of heartfelt messages from other people in the alopecia community promising to remember Rio’s spirit.
