Will, 53, stunned the star-studded audience and movie fans alike when he walked onto the stage and smacked Chris, who was presenting the award for Best Documentary.  

The 57-year-old comedian appeared to have made a joke about Will’s wife of 25 years, actress Jada Pinkett Smith, suffering alopecia when the actor took offence.

‘Jada, I love ya. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see ya,’ Chris told the crowd, referring to the 1997 film, G.I. Jane, which starred Demi Moore with a shaved head. 

As Will turned and made his way back down to his seat in the front row, a shell-shocked Chris told the audience: ‘Oh wow. Will Smith just smacked the s**t out of me.’

After sitting down again, a furious Will warned Chris to ‘keep my wife’s name out your f**king mouth,’ as the audience sat in stunned silence.

Will later returned to the stage to accept the award for Best Actor for his role in King Richard, in which he portrayed Venus and Serena Williams’ father.

The tearful actor apologised for his earlier behaviour without directly addressing Chris in his acceptance speech.

‘I want to apologise to the Academy. I want to apologise to all my fellow nominees. This is a beautiful moment and I’m not crying for winning an award,’ he began.

He added: ‘I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people. 

‘I know to do what we do, you got to be able to take abuse. You got to be able to have people talk crazy about you. 

‘In this business you got to be able to have people disrespecting you. And you got to smile and you got to pretend like that’s okay.’  

Saying sorry: The tearful actor apologised for his earlier behaviour without directly addressing Chris in his acceptance speech
