Don’t count Jada Pinkett Smith to save the day when it comes to the Oscars hosting job.
The actress and Red Table Talk host, 39, stopped by People Now where she laughed off any possibility of her hosting the 91st Academy Awards this year after Kevin Hart stepped down.
“I would be horrific at hosting the Oscars,” Pinkett Smith said with a laugh. “Let me tell you, as an artist you have to know your limits. You have to know you limitations. A host, for me, with the Oscars — it would probably be the worst Oscars they ever had.”

She continued, “Anything is possible, I should never say never. But I would honestly say there’s so many other people who would do a far better job than me, and I don’t say that a lot.”

After Hart, 39, originally stepped down from his duties after old homophobic tweets and jokes were surfaced, the actor seemed to have changed his mind during a conversation with Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talk show. But days later, Hart confirmed that he wouldn’t be taking on the job during a Good Morning America appearance
When host Michael Strahan asked if he would return to host the Oscars if asked, the comedian responded with a strong denial.
“No,” he said. “I’m not hosting the Oscars this year.”

“It’s hard to predict what can happen,” Hart continued. “I don’t want people to think there’s a thing between me and the Academy, because there isn’t. The Academy, they’re amazing people, the offer was made, it was received, I was excited, things happened, it didn’t work out the way that it should’ve. Right now, from a time perspective, I don’t have the time [to return as host]… It’s not going to happen. In the future, if it does, it does.”
The 91st Academy Awards air live on ABC at 8 p.m. on Feb. 24. Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk airs Mondays on Facebook.
