Playing Jada Pinkett Smith Responds to Chris Rock's Oscars Joke: 'It Comes With the Territory'

Jada Pinkett Smith isn't sweating Chris Rock's jab from the this year's Academy Awards.

Pinkett Smith, who was one of the most vocal proponents of a boycott against the 2016 Oscars due to their lack of diversity, was mocked by Rock, who hosted the ceremony, during his opening monologue.

"Hey look it comes with the territory, we gotta keep it moving," the 44-year-old Gotham star told photographers as she walked through Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday. "We got a lot of stuff we gotta handle, a lot of stuff going on in our world right now. We gotta keep it moving."

At the ceremony on Feb. 28, Rock skewered the actress, joking, "Jada said she's not coming. I was like, 'Isn't she on a TV show?' Jada's gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited!"

Rock went on to poke fun at the actress' husband, Will Smith, joking that she was mad he didn't get nominated for his role in Concussion. "It's not fair that Will was this good and didn't get nominated. You're right. It's also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for Wild Wild West!"

Last week, ET caught up with actress Angela Bassett who praised Rock's work at host, and even addressed his comments toward Pinkett Smith.

"Jada was the spark. She was the spark that got the dialogue going," Bassett said. "She can handle herself. She's a tough cookie."
