“He called me and basically he was like, ‘I’d love to take you out.’ And I was like, ‘What do you mean?,'” Jada Pinkett Smith said.

Jada Pinkett Smith is currently detailing her book, Journey, and spoke about whether she cares to have a conversation with Rock now.


“I just hope that all the misunderstanding around this can be cleared up and that there can be peace,” Pinkett Smith said.

She added, “I talk about this in the book, I think that there might be some misunderstanding between Chris and I as far as the 2016 Oscars. I think that he might’ve taken offense, which I meant no harm in offending. That wasn’t my intention. But I do think that there’s a big misunderstanding there.”

Jada Pinkett Smith is the cover star of the new edition of PEOPLE, and during the conversation, she revealed that she thought the Oscars slap was a skit.

“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.
