He told her: “Jada, can’t wait for G.I. Jane 2.”

Will – who went on to win Best Actor later in the evening – returned to his seat and yelled: “Keep my wife’s name out of your f****** mouth.”

Jada, 50, previously opened up about her decision to shave her head after suffering from alopecia.

But what does Chris’ G.I. Jane reference mean?

G.I. Jane is an action movie from 1997 which stars Demi Moore as the lead, Jordan O’Neil.

In the film, she is the first woman to go through Navy Seal training and even beats many of her male peers during it.

To complete her tough training and solidify her position as a Seal, Jordan shaves her head and becomes the titular G.I. Jane.

She ends up completely hiding away her femininity.

Demi’s character’s look led to Chris making a joke about Jada’s buzzcut.

Following the shocking smack, Will returned to his seat, and Chris looked dazed and stunned by what happened.

He attempted to act casual as he resumed his presenting role for the best documentary feature category.

“Wow, Will Smith just smacked the s**t out of me,” Chris joked with the audience.

He also said: “That was the greatest night in television history.”

Later on in the evening, Will won his first Oscar for his performance in King Richard and apologised on stage for his previous actions.
