Bradley Cooper has been pictured seemingly trying to calm Will Smith down after he hit Chris Rock following a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Shortly before winning the best actor award, King Richard actor Will, 53, stormed on stage and hit comedian Chris, before telling him: ‘Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth.’

After the jaw-dropping incident, Bradley, 47, was seen speaking intently to Will, with his hands on the actor’s shoulders.

The two actors then shared a hug.

Chris, 57, was on stage to present an award for best documentary, which went to Summer of Soul.

However, things took a turn when he directed a comment to Jada, who was in the crowd beside her husband.

‘Jada, can’t wait for GI Jane 2,’ he said, referring to her buzz cut – something the couple didn’t look amused by.

Will then stormed the stage and appeared to swing at the comic, before walking back to his seat.

‘Oh wow, Will Smith just smacked the s**t out of me,’ a shaken Chris told the crowd.

‘Wow dude. It was a GI Jane joke.’

‘Keep my wife’s name out your f**king mouth,’ Will furiously yelled from his seat, as the audience fell silent.

‘I’m going to, okay… I’ll keep going? That was, er, the greatest night in the history of television,’ Chris responded.

However, the drama didn’t end there, as minutes later, Will accepted the award for best actor, sobbing as he gave his speech.

‘I want to apologise to the Academy, I want to apologise to my fellow nominees. This is a beautiful moment and I’m not crying for winning an award. It’s not about winning an award. It’s about being able to shine a light on all the people…’

‘Art imitates life, I look like the crazy father just like they said about Richard Williams,’ he laughed. ‘But love will make you do crazy things.’

Elsewhere, Jessica Chastain won the best actress award, while best picture went to Coda.
