Will Smith Opens Up About What Really Happened The Night Of The Oscars Slap: ‘I’ve Always Wanted To Be Superman’

While the Academy Awards took place back in March, the discourse surrounding Hollywood’s biggest night hasn’t slowed down much. This is due to Will Smith breaking the internet by slapping Chris Rock live on television, with both the celebs and the public still processing that event. The conversation surrounding The Slap has picked up recently, thanks to the upcoming release of Smith’s new drama Emancipation. And now the "King Richard" actor has opened up about what really happened the night of the Oscars Slap, saying “I’ve always wanted to be Superman.” The upcoming release of Antoine Fuqua’s "Emancipation" will mark Will Smith’s first new movie since The Slap. The highly anticipated drama also has the potential to win big during Awards Season, which no doubt feels like a full circle moment for the 54-year-old actor/producer. Smith recently appeared on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah," where he spoke candidly about the infamous incident at the Oscars with Chris Rock. He opened up about where his head was at the time.
