Jada Pinkett Smith has expressed her “deepest hope” that her husband Will Smith and Chris Rock will be able to “reconcile” following their Oscars altercation.
After her husband slapped Rock for making a joke about her short haircut at the Oscars in March, the actress, 50, has spoken out for the first time.
She discussed how her shorter hair is the result of alopecia, a medical condition that causes hair loss, on the most recent episode of her Red Table Talk show.
“This is a really important Red Table Talk on alopecia,” Pinkett Smith said at the start of the episode.”Thousands have reached out to me with their stories in light of what I’ve been through with my health and what happened at the Oscars.
“I’m taking advantage of this opportunity to speak with our alopecia family about what it’s like to live with this condition and to educate people about what alopecia is.”
She added that she hopes Smith, 53, and Rock, whom she met in 1994, can “talk it out” in the future.
