Kevin Hart recently updated the public on how much Will Smith has reportedly improved since the incident that saw him slap Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards.
It was essentially impossible to ignore the slap and the circumstances surrounding it for weeks after that fateful night, but it also didn't take long for updates in the situation to roll in as that time passed.
In the days that immediately followed the Oscars, Will Smith issued a formal apology to Rock — which was notably absent during his Best Actor acceptance speech — and Rock expressed that he wasn't ready to talk about the incident during one of his shows.
Eventually, Smith would resign from the Academy and receive a 10-year ban from all of its events and programs as a result of his actions.
But while those are hardly consequences that any actor wants to face, Kevin Hart is now saying that Smith has found himself in a more positive place in the months since it all went down.
