Jessica Chastain On Accepting Her Oscar Shortly After Will Smith Slapped Chris Rock At The Academy Awards
Share this @internewscast.com



This year’s Academy Awards ceremony was quite “interesting” compared to others, and that’s not just because Zack Snyder’s Justice League nabbed “Oscars cheer moment.” The vibe of the evening took a turn when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage after the comedian made a joke in reference to his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. In the aftermath, a number of stars (both those who were present and those who were not) have weighed in on the situation. Jessica Chastain, who took home the Best Actress trophy that night has remained silent on the matter but has now shared some thoughts on what it was like to accept her award shortly after the slap. 

Jessica Chastain won an Oscar for her performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye, for which she earned praise from critics. It was for that reason that she was arguably the frontrunner for the prestigious prize. Of course, Chastain couldn’t have predicted that she would land the gold statue, nor could she have known that she’d do so after such an unexpected incident like the slap. Chastain caught up with Porter (opens in new tab), where she reflected on her big moment and discussed her speech. She also revealed that like so many others, she was also trying to process what had just gone down between Will Smith and Chris Rock: 

Well… It was a weird night. I walked into a very charged energy in that room, and I was trying to figure out… how to just breathe and create a calmness.
