Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said he ‘understands’ why Will Smith came to the defence of his wife at the Oscars.

In an interview on Brisbane radio on Thursday morning, the prime minister was asked whether he ever felt the need to slap someone in parliament.  

‘I’m also fiercely defensive of anyone who would say anything about Jenny too, so I can understand it,’ he said in response.

Mr Morrison said he could understand why some men could resort to physical violence but added ‘that’s not how you roll’.

Hollywood star Smith, 53, was forced to apologise after striding on stage and slapping Oscars host Rock, 57, at Monday’s ceremony.

An angry Smith returned to his seat and shouted twice at Rock: ‘Leave my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth.’ 

Smith’s act occurred after Rock had made a bad-taste joke referencing the bald head of Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
