Actress Jada Pinkett Smith says she didn’t take Oscar host Chris Rock’s joke on her personally.
Last month during the Academy Awards, the Rock, 51, slammed Jada, who boycotted the Oscars for lack of diversity among the 2016 acting nominees, during his opening monologue.
“Jada said she’s not coming. I was like, ‘Isn’t she on a TV show?’ Jada’s gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited!” Rock had said.
The 44-year-old actress, however, said she isn’t thinking too much about Rock’s comments as “we gotta keep it moving because “there’s a lot of stuff we gotta handle”, reported Ace Showbiz.
“It comes with the territory, sweetheart. Hey look, it comes with the territory but we gotta keep it moving. We gotta keep it moving. We gotta keep it moving. There’s a lot of stuff we gotta handle, a lot of stuff in our world right now. We gotta keep it moving,” Jada said.
During his monologue, Rock also shared his opinion about Jada’s husband Will Smith and his acting in “Concussion”.
“It’s not fair that Will was this good and didn’t get nominated. It’s also not fair that Will was paid USD 20 million for ‘Wild Wild West’!” he said.
