Will Smith Comforted By Denzel Washington, Bradley Cooper, Tyler Perry After Oscars Slap: ‘Thanks D’

Will Smith had Denzel Washington to thank for giving him words of wisdom following his win for Best Actor at the 2022 Oscars and his jaw-dropping moment onstage where he slapped comedian Chris Rock across the face after he made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. Will shared what Denzel said to him in his acceptance speech, saying: “He said, ‘At your highest moment, be careful. That’s when the devil comes for you.'” Tyler Perry and Bradley Cooper also consoled Will in the slap aftermath.
