The actor, 53, also claimed the 57-year-old comic has not yet forgiven him for the attack at this year’s Academy Awards after he “reached out”.
Smith said in an Instagram video posted Friday (29.07.22) he was “fogged out” and “fuzzy” at the time of the slap, which was why he didn’t say sorry to Chris at the time.
He added in a question and answer session which he said was filled with “fair” questions from fans: “I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk when he is, he will reach out. So I will say to you, Chris, I apologise to you.

Gallery: 'I'm a fraud! Oh god, they're on to me! I'm a fraud!'?The stars who suffer from Imposter Syndrome (BANG Showbiz)
You'd never have guessed...
These multi-talented celebs have all earnt their place at the top of their art and the awards and adulation have followed. But despite their impressive achievements, stars like Lady Gaga, Maisie Williams and even Tom Hanks often doubt their talent and feel like complete and utter frauds, it’s a feeling that’s described as Imposter Syndrome. Find out which stars have struggled with this issue...
The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress, best known as Arya Stark in the fantasy series, starred in one of the biggest shows in the history of TV, but that hasn’t stopped her from battling imposter syndrome. She said: “I think even being an actress for over a decade now, I still have imposter syndrome. Where you're asking yourself, 'Oh, is this really what I'm supposed to be doing?’”
Natalie Portman danced her way to a Best Actress Oscar at the 2011 awards for her portrayal of a schizophrenic ballerina in the psychological thriller ‘Black Swan’. But despite being honored with the highest accolade an actress can earn in Hollywood, Portman has never felt good enough. Reflecting on her time at Harvard at the Harvard event in 2015, Natalie said: “Today I feel much like I did when I came to Harvard Yard as a freshman in 1999. “I felt like there had been some mistake, that I wasn’t smart enough to be in this company, and that every time I opened my mouth I would have to prove that I wasn’t just a dumb actress.”
She’s known as the ‘Spanish Enchantress’ outside her native county, but the Academy Award winner doesn’t see herself in the same light. Cruz always fears she will get fired every time she starts a new project as she doesn’t think she’s good enough. She said: “I feel every time I’m making a movie, I feel like if it was my first movie. “Every time I have the same fear that I’m gonna be fired. And I’m not joking. Every movie, the first week, I always feel that they could fire me!”
Despite being more than a quadruple threat, the actress, comedian, writer, producer and playwright feels like a complete and utter fraud! She said: "The beauty of the impostor syndrome is you vacillate between extreme egomania, and a complete feeling of, 'I'm a fraud! Oh god, they're on to me! I'm a fraud!'
With a career that has spanned five decades and a filmography that includes 'Scarface', 'The Witches of Eastwick', 'Batman Returns' and 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' and many more, you'd think Michelle Pfeiffer would be secure about her acting talents. But Michelle was plagued with self-doubt, especially when she started out. Pfeiffer, now 64, said: "I think it comes from not having a background of formal training, you know, in the beginning. “And I think when I started out, a lot of actors were coming out of Juilliard and I was just this young person from Orange County, kind of just getting by on my instincts purely and I think, for the longest time, I felt like it wasn’t really enough and maybe didn’t give me the credibility and maybe because I had to find my technique as I went along. That I didn’t sort of start from a real secure place.”
Ellie’s hit songs like ‘Lights’, ‘Love Me Like You Do’ and ‘Burn’ have earned her global chart success, but imposter syndrome almost led Ellie to sabotage her entire career. She said: “I know I chose this job but nothing could have prepared me for the ups and downs that come with it. “I know for sure that a lot of my anxiety has come from what they call ‘imposter syndrome’, not believing in myself enough and thinking that I don’t deserve happiness, which results in wanting to sabotage my own success.”
Lifestyle blogger Zoe Sugg, better known by her YouTube moniker Zoella, has racked up more than 10 million subscribers on her channel. But the self-made millionaire had doubts over everything she achieved. She said: “I have major imposter syndrome at the moment! “I’m constantly doubting everything I’ve achieved, everything I’m working on business wise and everything I’m working on in my personal life! “It’s such a peculiar feeling and nothing I do seems to make it ‘less so’.”
The former First Lady didn’t always feel she was deserving of her career as a lawyer and later as a prominent charity campaigner and women of influence. Michelle - who is married to history making former President, Barack Obama - said: "I had to overcome the question ‘am I good enough?’. “It’s dogged me for most of my life. Many women and young girls walk around with that question in their minds. “I overcame that question the same way I do everything – with hard work. "I decided to put my head down and let my work speak for itself. I felt like I had something to prove because of the colour of my skin and the shape of my body, but I had to get out of my own way. “It never goes away. “It’s sort of like ‘you’re actually listening to me?’ It doesn’t go away, that feeling of ‘I don’t know if the world should take me seriously; I’m just Michelle Robinson, that little girl on the south side who went to public school’.”
“I’m not going to try to unpack all of that right now but 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.
Kevin Hart Gifts Chris Rock a Goat Named 'Will Smith' Live on Stage
Kevin Hart Gifts Chris Rock a Goat Named 'Will Smith' Live on StageThe actor, 43, presented Rock, 57, with a goat at the end of their Rock Hart: Only Headliners Allowed show at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Saturday, July 23, making a nod to the acronym Greatest of All Time. When fellow comedian Dave Chappelle, who joined the pair on stage, asked the goat’s name, Hart quickly jumped in to declare: “The name is Will Smith.
“There is no part of me that thinks that’s the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults.”
Oscars award presenter Rock had joked Jada looked like “GI Jane” due to her shaven head, with many speculating Smith took offence as she had recently revealed she has cut her hair to cover up her alopecia.
Smith stormed the stage and slapped Rock, then twice howled after he returned to his seat: “Keep my wife’s name out your f****** mouth.”
When he later picked up his Best Actor trophy for his role in ‘King Richard’ the same night he failed to apologise to Rock.
Smith went on: “I made a choice of my own from my own experiences from my history with Chris.
“Jada had nothing to do with it. I’m sorry, babe. I want to say sorry to my kids and my family for the heat that I brought on all of us.
“To all my fellow nominees, this is a community. It’s like, I won because you voted for me and it breaks my heart to have stolen and tarnished your moment… disappointing people is my central trauma. I hate when I let people down so it hurts.
“It hurts me psychologically and emotionally to know I didn’t live up to people’s image and impression of me, and the work I am trying to do is I am deeply remorseful.
“And I’m trying to be remorseful without being ashamed of myself. I’m human and I made a mistake and I’m trying not to think of myself as a piece of s***.
“I would say to those people I know it was confusing, I know it was shocking, but I promise you I am deeply devoted and committed to putting light and love and joy into the world.
“And, you know, if you hang on I promise we'll be able to be friends again,' he said to the fans he had let down.”
