Will Smith reveals Jada didn't warn him before boycotting the Oscars

Jada Pinkett Smith made headlines around the world by posting a video detailing her decision to boycott the Oscars.
But her husband Will Smith has revealed that he did not know about Jada's stance beforehand - and only learnt that he would not be attending the Academy Awards when questioned by the media.

'I was out of the country when she made the video,' the actor explained on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show on Tuesday.

'I was in Thailand. And I get off of the plane and you know, the paparazzi were like, "Will, Will, you're not going to the Oscars! What do you think about Jada's video?" 
"Um, I think, give me a second, let me call-" I had no idea. I had no idea and I'm like, "Babe, you gotta give a fellow a little heads up, you know? Just a lil something, just, "Hey babe, you know, hit me before you walk out of the airport." You know, give me, give me something."'
'I got in the car and Googled and watched the video,' he added. 'I was like, "Honey, is there anything you need to tell me?" She said, "Oh, I didn't want to bother you on vacation."
'"Uh, you did. You really did."'
Will also clarified that the decision to boycott the Oscars was not about whether he personally received a nomination.
'This is an issue of a really regressive trend, not just in Hollywood but in my country,' he said. 'It’s not about me or being nominated.'

Now you wonder why men avoid those so called 'independent' women. You will have your beautiful wife to showoff but she will give you all types of headache at home because you are equals. Why will a wife go make a statement about her family when the husband has no idea. She could have told him before he got on that plane. I hope una marriage is intact sha- Newyorker ( Linda let's get married )

I like oyibo way of life, they give their wives free hands to do as they like. Though she is supposed to hint the husband on what's she is planning to do.

Hmmmm...Only a new born baby will believe this. Aren't they a couple, don't they live together, don't they communicate on phone when they are far away from each other? Will Smith behaves as if he's scared of her.
