“I thought, ‘This is a skit,'” Pinkett Smith said. “I was like, ‘There’s no way that Will hit him. It wasn’t until Will started to walk back to his chair that I even realized it wasn’t a skit.”

She stated after the show, the first thing she said to the Oscar-winning actor was, “Are you okay?” Adding, “I’m going to be by his side but also allow him to have to figure this out for himself.”


The conversation circled her forthcoming book, Worthy, which will be released on Oct. 17.
