Since the moment Jada Pinkett Smith made her video declaring a boycott of the Oscars, hubby Will Smith has stood by her side.

Well, since JUST AFTER that moment anyway.

In an interview with BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw, the Concussion star explained that first he had to find out about the video from the press!

"I was out of the country when she made the video, I was in Thailand… I had no idea."

In fact, it was paparazzi asking for his reaction to the vid that first clued him in!

How did he react when he finally saw his wife's declaration? He called home a little perplexed:

"I was like, 'Honey, is there anything you need to tell me?' She said, 'Oh, I didn't want to bother you on vacation.' 'Uh, you did. You really did.'"

To find out how the couple got on the same page — and Will's response to those that think it's all about his own nomination — ch-ch-check out the rest of the interview (below)!
