Actor gave an in-depth interview with David Letterman, recorded before the 2022 Oscars
In the new episode, released on Friday 20 Maio, Smith discussed taking a break from acting and working on his 2021 livro de memórias.
“My experiences and my life, and the writing of this book have unlocked a part of me, as an actor, that is like nothing I’ve ever experienced," ele disse.
“Life is so exciting to me right now because I can reach people differently than I’ve ever been able to reach people, largely because of my pain,” Smith continued. “I’m really ready to dive into my heart in a way that I think will be, esperançosamente, fulfilling for me and helpful for the human family.”
Smith has not conducted a full interview since the sensational Oscars incident.
He has, Contudo, apologised to Rock in the aftermath of the slap, and stated that he would not be contesting the 10-year Academy event ban issued to him as a punishment.
Also among the six new episodes of My Next Guest were interviews with Billie Eilish, Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Durant and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
The series can be streamed now on Netflix.
