Rock recently made headlines after being smacked by Will Smith on stage at the Academy Awards back in March. Rock presented the best documentary Oscar and made jokes about several attendees, including Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Will Smith approached the stage from his front-row seat and smacked Rock, stunning the comedian, the theater crowd, and viewers at home. Rock said he had no interest in pursuing charges, and briefly addressed the attack publicly during a comedy concert in Boston.

Chris Rock is an award-winning director, actor, producer, and writer. He recently wrapped production on the biopic Rustin. He also recently starred in season 4 of FX's Emmy-winning drama series Fargo. 

Rock has won four Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, and is a New York Times Best-Selling author.
