Benedict Cumberbatch is deep into the promotion of his new movie ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ and for that he has gone to ‘Saturday Night Live‘. Although they ended up talking about Will Smith‘s moment at the Oscars and the Marvel actor has taken the opportunity to joke about it.
In his visit to this American television space, the actor starred in a monologue in which he addressed personal issues for those who did not know him outside his role in ‘Doctor Strange’.
I mean, I didn’t win. I was beat by Will Smith. No, not physically!
Meanwhile, he reminded viewers that this year he was about to take the Oscar for Best Actor for ‘The Power of the Dog‘, but in the end it was Smith who won it.
“I mean, I didn’t win. I was beat by Will Smith. No, not physically!”, began the Briton jokingly and referring, of course, to Smith’s reaction to Chris Rock‘s comment. A comment that has unleashed the laughter of those present on the set.
A joke about Will Smith that doesn’t come at his best moment
Although months have passed since the Oscars ceremony in which Smith grabbed all the spotlight for his slap to Rock, this moment continues to bring consequences, not only to the world of cinema, but to the actor himself. There are already several projects that have been postponed or directly canceled.
Still, beyond his professional life, his personal life is not going through its best moment either, since, according to several American media, the actor could divorce his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, whom he defended after a joke by Chris Rock. “Tensions between them have been noticeable in recent months,” confirmed Heat Magazine.
