Nevertheless, he says, “As you could have anticipated, the night was a complete disaster.” There are, without a doubt, many minute details to consider. By the time it was through, I had lost all composure. All I can say is that you have no idea what other people are going through. Period.

Smith, on the other hand, has kept a low profile.

Smith responds by saying, “It was a lot of things,” in response to Noah’s question about what upset him. He was the only one who saw his father physically assault his mother in front of him and his siblings. It would seem like everything is poised to detonate at the same time. “I have no desire to be like them in any manner.”

The controversy surrounding his now-famous slap cast a shadow on the fact that he won his first Oscar for the role of King Richard, which he played.
