Since the Oscar nominations were announced, there was a lot of controversy surrounding them, especially with Jada Pinkett Smith.

Will Smith's wife made a public video about how she wants fellow actors to boycott the award show, since her husband, and other black actors got overlooked in the nominations. 

Some thought she was right to voice her views, and others thought she was wrong. Will's ex Fresh Prince co-star, Janet Hubert, even made another video to say what she felt about Jada's views. 

But now, Will Smith himself has stepped up and revealed what he really thinks. 

"I was knocked over. I was happy to be married to that woman but I appreciated the push," he told Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

"There's a position that we hold in this community and, if were not a part of the solution, we're a part of the problem."

And even though the Oscars president said she was disappointed in the outcome, Will said that he still won't be attending the show. 

"My wife's not going. It would be awkward to show up with Charlize Theron. We've discussed it and we're part of this community, but at this current time, we're uncomfortable to stand there and say, 'This is OK.'" 

Do you think he's making a mistake? 


After her outburst during the week, Jada Pinkett Smith has thanked Oscars president Cheryl Boone Isaacs. 

The president of the awards admitted to being "heartbroken and frustrated" by the all-white nominations, which were announced this week. 

Jada made a very public video and promised to boycott the award show next month, but Cheryl had a very quick response and insisted that the organisation is going up for a review. 

Mrs Pinkett Smith then took to social media saying: "I would like to express my gratitude to the Academy, specifically Cheryl Boone Isaacs, for such a quick response in regard to the issue at hand. I look forward to the future."

Jada's husband, Will Smith was hoping for a nomination for his role in Concussion, but didn't make the final five. Will's ex-co-star, Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, also spoke out yesterday about Jada's public video.
