Will Smith in a conversation on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah spoke about his infamous slap towards Chris Rock on Dolly Theatre Stage, during the Oscars; and how he recalls the night as his ‘horrific’ night to date. However, the actor has forgiven himself for the same, considering it a human error.

Talking to Noah, Will Smith said, “[There are] many nuances and complexities to it, you know, but at the end of the day, I just, I lost it, you know,” He added, “I guess what I would say, you just never know what somebody’s going through.”

He further said, “You’re asking, what did I learn? And it’s that we just got to be nice to each other, man,”

He said, “You know, it’s like, it’s hard. And I guess the thing that was most painful for me is, I took my hard and made it hard for other people. You know, it’s like, I understood the idea when they say hurt people hurt people.”

Smith further added on saying that he had to forgive himself for being human, “I had to forgive myself for being human,” He added, “Trust me, there’s nobody that hates the fact that I’m human more than me. And just finding that space for myself within myself to be human. It’s like, I want, I’ve always wanted to be Superman. I’ve always wanted to swoop in and save the damsel in distress, you know. And I had to humble down, you know, and realize that I’m a flawed human, and I still have an opportunity to go out in the world and contribute in a way that fills my heart, and hopefully helps other people.” As quoted by Hollywood Reporter.
