The 94th Academy Awards took place on March 27, 2022. Although some iconic moments unfolded, the scene that stole the show was Smith slapping Rock. As the comedian presented the Documentary Feature Oscar, Rock made a joke comparing Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, to G.I. Jane.

The similarity, you ask? Well, Rock thought Pinkett Smith would make the perfect G.I. Jane due to her baldness. However, the joke didn’t sit right with Smith. The King Richard star felt the comedian was taking an insensitive jab at his wife, who, as many fans know, has battled alopecia for years.

Smith walked on stage and slapped Rock hard across his face. Rock maintained his cool, even making light of the situation. However, the backlash was immediate, with several people condemning the actor.

The day after the Oscars, the Armchair Expert podcast interviewed Brolin about his acting career, sobriety, and masculinity. A few minutes into the discussion, Dax Shepard’s co-host, Monica Padman, asked the Avengers: Endgame star what he thought about the incident.

Brolin revealed that he was there when Smith slapped Rock. Shepard elaborated, “Let’s just say that you witnessed something pretty chaotic.” 

After Shepard detailed a fight, he witnessed at a 7-Eleven, Brolin related the story, saying, “You’re like, ‘This is where I’ve intended to be my whole life.’ By the way, not a good thing. That’s not a good thing.” The actor was alluding to the fact that he’s tried to get into the middle of fights throughout his life.

Brolin explained, “If you carry a rage inside you, you are looking to manifest that rage somewhere. You are looking for the hole to fill with your rage, and you want to be the leader of that rage.”
