“It’s been a minute… Over the last few months, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and personal work… You asked a lot of fair questions that I wanted to take some time to answer. I was fogged out by that point. It’s all fuzzy. I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk and when he is, he’ll reach out.I will say to you Chris, I apologize to you, my behavior was unacceptable, and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.”
Will Smith is currently on a 10-year ban from the Academy however, sources have confirmed that he is working on a sequel for his 2007 film, I Am Legend with his own production house.
