Will Smith Attributes the Recent Hatred to Fame While Remaining Silent on the Oscar Controversy

Will Smith has been the talk of the town in recent years, especially after the Oscar incident and the intriguing revelations shared by his life partner, Jada Smith. The actor appeared at the Red Sea Film Festival recently, which also marked his first public engagement since the Oscars controversy.

While speaking at the event, although not directly confronting the subject, Smith skillfully danced around it, offering a cryptic yet vivid summary of his past few months’ experiences. As reported by Deadline, he stated,
“Fame is a unique monster and I’ve had to be really careful… you can’t get excited when everybody is saying good things about you. The more you take when people are saying good things about you, the more hurt you’re going to be when people are saying bad things about you,”

Initially, the internet swiftly condemned the actor after the event, but gradually, sympathy began to emerge, especially following the many revelations made by Jada Pinkett Smith just recently.
