“There’s a part of him that’s come to terms with the fact that he’ll never be able to entirely heal the damage,” a source said.
Will Smith’s assault on Chris Rock at this year’s Oscars has been incredibly devastating, and the Academy Award winner’s family has already suffered as a result. “It’s been a nightmare for everyone,” said a family source who is anxiously expecting the Academy’s investigation’s findings.
“Will understands that the path to redemption will be long and difficult, and there’s a part of him that’s come to terms with the fact that he’ll never be able to totally heal the harm that was done,” the insider told US Magazine. The actor’s family has kept mute on the topic, presumably to avoid garnering any more bad publicity than has already been received.
“They understand that keeping their mouths shut is the best course of action. Time is the only healer “remarked the source Jada Pinkett Smith had already posted a remark on Instagram in apparent response to the horrible assault. It stated, “This is a season for healing, and I’m here for it.” Willow, in the meantime, published her own quote the same day, adding, “Do you know someone who is going through a difficult time right now? Everyone, in fact. Just remember to be nice.”

Then, on April 2, she posted some philosophical comments on Twitter, which her admirers mistook for a reaction to Smith’s Oscars debacle. “The challenge is where you’ll find the meaning of life. Life is a chain of events “Willow penned an essay. During the Oscars 2022, the King Richard star surprised audiences around the world when he slapped presenter Chris Rock over a joke he made about his wife’s finances.
After Rock responded, “Jada, can’t wait for G.I. Jane 2,” the 53-year-old said, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king lips.” Later that evening, after accepting his first Academy Award, he apologized for his actions, but not to Rock. “In my life, I’m being called to love people, to defend people, and to be a river for my people. I’d like to express my regret to the academy. I’d want to express my regret to all of my fellow nominees… Love, on the other hand, will drive you insane “According to US Magazine, he stated.
He publicly apologized to Rock the next day for his “inappropriate and reprehensible” behavior, explaining that “a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to stomach, and I reacted emotionally.” He said, “Chris, I’d like to officially apologize to you. I was both out of line and incorrect. I’m embarrassed, and my actions do not reflect the guy I aspire to be. Violence has no place in a world of love and peace.”
He resigned from the Academy a few days ago, but it will not prevent him from being nominated and recognized for Oscar-worthy performances in the future. According to Fox News, his decision caused the Academy Board of Governors to reschedule a meeting to consider the actor’s behavior from April 18 to this Friday.
