Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Seen in First Joint Appearance Months After Oscars Slap

The couple was photographed leaving Nobu in Malibu, Calif. together on Aug. 13, marking their first joint public appearance since Will infamously slapped Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars five months earlier.

During their most recent outing, Will was seen wearing a navy polo shirt, matching pants and ball cap, while Jada wore a black utility-style jumpsuit with a flannel tied around her waist and oversized shades.

Will Smith says he has 'reached out' to Chris Rock about Oscars slap

The actor slapped Rock on stage at the Academy Awards in March, after the comic made a joke about Smith's wife.

On Friday, Smith released a video reflecting on the slap - the first time he has been seen discussing it - in which he reiterated his apology.

"Chris, I apologise to you. My behaviour was unacceptable," he said.

"I'm here whenever you're ready to talk."

Smith has previously only issued written statements about the altercation. In the video, on his own YouTube channel, he answers questions that appear to be written by fans.

Will Smith banned from Oscars for 10 years over slap

In a statement, the Academy said the 94th Oscars had been "overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behaviour we saw Mr Smith exhibit on stage".

Smith has apologised for his actions and resigned from the Academy.

The actor hit Rock for joking about his wife's shaved head, a result of the hair-loss condition alopecia.

Less than an hour later, he was awarded the best actor award for his role in "King Richard", where he played the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams.
