Regina Hall is sharing her opinions on the recent apology made by Will Smith to comedian Chris Rock.

Will Smith smacked Chris Rock on stage at the 2022 Oscars back in March after the comedian made a dubious joke about the actor's wife Jada Pinkett Smith's autoimmune disorder. 

Following the incident, Smith was greatly criticised by the industry and the public. 

Nevertheless, Smith's apology did put out a few fires. Hall, who co-hosted the event with Wanda Sykes and Amy Schumer, believes he merits another shot.

Hall responded to Smith's video apology to everyone, in which he acknowledged that his behaviour at the time was "inappropriate" and expressed his profound regret, by saying, "Life happens." 

She was speaking to ET at the screening of her forthcoming film Me Time, which stars Kevin Hart and Mark Wallberg.

Regina continued, "I always say any time I feel like someone genuinely, like you know, offering an apology -- I mean, what what can you say to that but thank you? I mean, it's great." 

In his video, Smith shared, "I can say to all of you there is no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment."  

He continued, "There's no part of me that thinks that's the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults." 

Will Smith revealed at the time that Chris Rock still avoids him and wanted to take his time getting close to him again after the shocking incident.
