Controversies surrounded Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith during the Oscars this year. After Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock for making fun of his wife, he received a lot of criticism. Will Smith, however, came forward and apologized for his action.

Back in 2014, Mrs. Smith was worried about being able to fit her Oscars dress. She had shared a picture on Facebook with her husband, Will Smith, and daughter Willow Smith to celebrate her few extra pounds. The picture was from UFC 170 and the trio wore coordinated black outfits.

“I like being a lil…fuller. Let’s just hope it will fit in The Oscars dress. Here’s to loving our bodies by our own standards.”

UFC 170 featured Ronda Rousey versus Sara McMann in the main event. Rousey won the fight via TKO in the first round itself. Daniel Cormier versus Patrick Cummins was the co-main event. This light heavyweight bout saw Cormier’s victory in the first round via TKO.
