After winning the Oscar that same night and slapping Chris Rock onstage, the actor disappeared from the scene. Now, however, Will Smith seems to be working on his next film.
Up until this year’s Oscars, Will Smith, who became famous with blockbusters such as Independence Day and Men in Black, was considered one of the most popular and successful film stars in the world. With his first Oscar award for the drama “King Richard”, the evening of the awards ceremony was also to be the actor’s career highlight to date. Instead, it became an absolute low point: Will Smith caused a huge scandal himself when he stormed onto the stage during the live show and gave comedian Chris Rock a hard slap in the face after he made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. Will Smith’s win for Best Actor and the rest of the evening of the awards ceremony were relegated to the sidelines in the media and overshadowed by the scandalous event – the only topic being the Hollywood star’s cleavage scandal.
The actor soon regretted his actions and voluntarily resigned as a member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. The organization, which awards the Oscars in the film industry every year, also banned Smith from participating in all events for the next ten years. But some film studios also got cold feet from the scandal, which prompted some film projects with Will Smith to be put on hold. The actor then withdrew from the public for the time being. Now Smith seems to be working on his Hollywood comeback and has started preparations for his next film project. You can find out which film it is in the following Video.
