Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t focusing on the past. The 44-year-old actress told photographers at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday, March 5, that she is moving forward after Chris Rock slammed her at last week’s Academy Awards.

During the comedian’s opening monologue, he poked fun at Pinkett Smith’s decision to boycott the Oscars for a lack of diversity among the 2016 acting nominees.

“Jada said she’s not coming,” Rock, 51, said. “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!”

However, Pinkett Smith seemed unfazed as she strutted past photographers at LAX on Saturday.

“It comes with the territory, sweetheart,” she told X17. “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.”

Rock also took at shot at the actress’ husband, Will Smith, during his hosting gig.

“It’s not fair that Will was this good and didn’t get nominated,” he said of the actor’s role in Concussion. “It’s also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for Wild Wild West!”
