Will Smith future plans after Oscar controversy revealed by co-star

Will Smith is reportedly planning to return as a 'better person' after slapping comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars earlier this year.

This latest revelation about the King Richard star comes from his former co-star Bai Ling

Joe was seen with them in the Wild Wild West, who told The Sun that he hoped Smith and Rock would reconcile soon.

Rather, Ling expressed his views on Smith's return to Hollywood after Slap effectively excommunicated Smith from the industry.

Ling shared, “People make mistakes. The mistake he made was not a good one. This needs to be recognized and changed.

He said, "When he (Smith) comes back, he will be a much better person.

They will have more humility and more power to influence people. We have to be forgiving - we all make mistakes.
