Will Smith won’t be attending the Oscars, following the lead of his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who said she would not watch or go to the Academy Awards because of the lack of diversity among the nominees.
“My wife’s not going. It would be awkward to show up with Charlize [Theron]. We’ve discussed it. We’re part of this community. But at this current time, we’re uncomfortable to stand there and say this is OK,” the actor told “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts on Thursday.
