Last month, Jada Pinkett Smith called for a boycott of the 88th Academy Awards in response to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. She was immediately backed by her husband Will, and other Hollywood names like Spike Lee. However many felt, Jada’s call for diversity had a lot to do with her husband not being nominated for his outstanding performance in the ‘Concussion’ film. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw, Will Smith cleared up these accusations saying, his wife still would have boycotted the Oscars, even if he was nominated.

In a previous interview, Will Smith told ABC, “There is a position that we hold in this community, and if we’re not part of the solution, we’re part of the problem.” and Wednesday (February 3) he stood by his position on the matter. He said, “If I had been the only person of color that had been nominated, my wife would have just made two videos,” referring to the Facebook videos his wife used to call for a boycott, adding, “She would not have gone with me.”
