On the night of Sunday to Monday, the whole world discovered Will Smith in a new light. In the middle of the Oscars ceremony, the actor, nominated and later awarded for his performance in “The Williams Method”, slapped Chris Rock after a reflection on the hair of his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Then, in flowery language, he told her not to say his wife’s name. A scene which shocked the planet and which has since caused liters of ink to flow. How could this adored actor of the planet have slipped like this, at the dawn of his consecration, in front of hundreds of millions of television viewers? This is what our journalists are trying to understand in the new episode of the ELLE debrief podcast.
Because behind the Prince of Bel-Air always looks adulescent, hides a personality who, in the United States, causes a lot of reaction. His vague relationship to Scientology, never declared but easily verifiable, fascinates. The very free education offered to his children, Willow and Jaden, but also his marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith, are regularly commented on and often mocked. A free couple, who have loved each other for twenty-five years and who do not hesitate to speak openly about their extramarital relationships, in a world where fidelity in appearance rules. Discover the underside of Will Smith and the origins of the discord with Chris Rock by listening to the new episode of ELLE debrief.
