Will Smith isn’t letting Chris Rock‘s Oscar dig keep him down.

Smith, 47, was all smiles as he was spotted leaving the set of his upcoming film Collateral Beauty in New York on Monday. There, he flashed his signature smile, signed autographs and snapped a few selfies with fans. At one point, he even threw up a peace sign for the photographers.

The actor’s good mood comes just one day after Rock singled him and Jada Pinkett Smith out in his opening monologue at the awards ceremony.

While addressing the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, Rock mentioned Smith and his wife, who decided to skip the ceremony.

“What happened this year? People went nuts. Spike [Lee] got mad. Jada went mad. Will went mad. Everyone went mad!” Rock said about the celebrities who spoke out on the matter. “Jada said she’s not coming. I was like, ‘Isn’t she on TV show?’ Jada’s gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties – I wasn’t invited!”

He continued: “Her man Will was not nominated for Concussion. I get it. You get mad. 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!”
