Will Smith jokes about Chris Rock slap ahead of 2023 Oscars

Will Smith had the audience in stitches at the 2021 Academy Awards when he joked about his friend and fellow actor, Chris Rock, slapping him ahead of the 2023 Oscars.

The joke came about when Smith, who was presenting an award with Rock, was asked if he was still considering taking the hosting gig for the 2023 Oscars. Smith responded that he was, but only if Rock promised to slap him if he didn’t do a good job.

The crowd erupted in laughter as Smith went on to explain that Rock had already agreed to the terms, and that he was “just trying to make sure it was in writing”.

Smith and Rock have been friends for many years, and the two have often collaborated on projects together. In fact, Rock was the one who suggested that Smith host the 2023 Oscars in the first place.

The two have also been known to joke around with each other, and Smith’s joke about the slap was a prime example of their playful banter.

It’s still too early to tell if Smith will actually take the hosting gig for the 2023 Oscars, but it’s clear that he and Rock will be ready to bring the laughs if he does.
