She told X17 a week after the ceremony: “It comes with the territory, sweetheart. Hey look, it comes with the territory but we gotta keep it moving. We gotta keep it moving. We gotta keep it moving. There’s a lot of stuff we gotta handle, a lot of stuff in our world right now. We gotta keep it moving."

The actress and her husband, Will Smith, famously boycotted this year’s Oscars after a lack of diversity among nominees in the major categories.

Rock, who hosted the Oscars last Sunday, gagged: “Jada [Pinkett Smith] boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited.”

The host also mocked Will Smith, who many thought would get a nomination for his role in Concussion.

Rock quipped: “It’s not fair that Will was this good and didn’t get nominated. It’s also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for Wild Wild West!"
