He’s got her back.

Jada Pinkett Smith has been the talk of the town ever since she announced she was boycotting the Oscars due to their continued lack of diversity, aka #OscarsSoWhite Year Two.

And while the actress has seen support from celebs like Spike Lee and Al Sharpton, as well as some not-so-positive feedback from Whoopi Goldberg and Stacey Dash, it surprisingly took a few days for Will Smith to share his stance on the matter.

Luckily for Jada, her Concussion star husband finally touched upon her activism during an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America Thursday, saying:

“My wife’s not going. It would be awkward to show up with Charlize [Theron]├óΓé¼┬ª we’ve discussed it.

We’re part of this community, but at this current time, we’re uncomfortable to stand there and say ‘this is OK.'”


We’re not completely shocked that Will would join his wife in her fight against racism, we’re just surprised he contemplated reuniting the Hancock cast on the Academy’s red carpet.

The former Fresh Prince actor went on to share his view on Hollywood’s role in achieving true equality, saying:

“We make movies, it’s not that serious. Except that it plants seeds for dreams.”

Those are some pretty inspirational words, Will.
