Actor Will Smith and the multi-talented Jada Pinkett Smith have been together for over 25 years and share two kids together; Jaden and Willow Smith. On the night of the 94th Academy Awards, comedian Chris Rock made a joke about Jada’s hair, which resulted in Will slapping Chris.

Following the incident at the Oscars, Will Smith has been barred from attending the Academy Awards for the next ten years.

During this week's 'Red Table Talk' show, which focused on alopecia, a medical disorder that causes hair loss, Jada finally spoke out.

Jada said: “About Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile. The state of the world today, we need them both and we all need one another more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the past 28 years and that keeps figuring out this thing called life together.”
