But Guillermo finally got the love he always wanted from LeBron James. While on the show once, LeBron said that he actually loves Guillermo and that he doesn’t even know it. LeBron even said, “See Guillermo, he gave me an opportunity to focus even more during all those finals runs I had. I was saying to myself, ‘If I can block him out, then the fans have no chance of getting to me’”

Chris joked about alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss, which left Will enraged. In the heat of the moment, Will walked up to the stage and smacked Chris Rock on Live television. As he returned to his seat, he yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth,” twice.

Later that evening, Will Smith won the Best Actor award for his role in the movie ‘King Richard’. On stage, in a tearful speech, he apologized to the Academy Awards and other nominees for his behavior.
