Will Smith, a Hollywood star, had spoken out about his “trauma” in an interview with David Letterman. This interview was recorded before he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars.
E!! According to E!
Smith’s episode started with a black title card informing viewers that Smith’s episode was taped before the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony.
The actor spoke for an hour about his 2021 memoir, “Will” and explained that he has “always considered myself a coward” because he saw his father beating up his mother as a child. He did not intervene.
Then he stated that it was this attitude that allowed him to project a positive, cheery image throughout his career. “When I came to work, I wanted people feel happy and fulfilled. “I found that my family was more secure when it was this way,” he stated.
He later shared with the outlet that he saw his whole life “disintegrated” after taking Ayahuasca.
“When I got out of it, it was clear that I could handle anything that happened in my life. I can deal with any person that I lose. Anything that happens in my life is manageable. Smith said, “I can handle any situation in my marriage.”
As per E! E! News: Will said that confronting all the difficult emotions he has been dealing with his entire life had “unlocked” a new side of him as an actor.
