Terry Crews is speaking out on the infamous event that occurred between two of his "dear friends" at the 2022 Oscars.

Crews, 53, recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about his upcoming memoir, "Tough: My True Journey to Power," when he was asked about his opinion on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock.

The Emmy-Award nominee quickly praised Rock for keeping his composure after being assaulted on stage, but refused to "demonize" Smith for his actions.

"Both Will Smith and Chris Rock are dear, dear friends of mine," he told the outlet. "I love them both as brothers, but there was a time in my life [where] I was Will Smith at that moment, and let me tell you, I've done worse than Will."

"Way overkill, just … the punishment did not fit the crime. Like, people were like, 'What in the world are you doing?' My wife even had to be like, 'You got to promise me you will never go off like this. You did not need to pick this man up and put him on his head, on the concrete,'" Crews recalled.

Crews went as far as to say his friend "saved Hollywood" that Sunday night by not retaliating on stage and during the live broadcast.

"When I look back, by what Chris did, by just deciding to hold everything together, it actually, I think in a lot of ways saved Hollywood," Crews shared with the outlet. "Because if there would've been a brawl on that stage, I don't know if Hollywood would've ever gotten any respect again, you know? It's hard to even imagine what would've happened."

Crews went on to show love to Rock while recounting times in his past when he’s been in both Rock and Smith’s position.

"The definition of toughness where I grew up and the way I was, it was always the ability to strike, the ability to punch, the ability to set things straight, to even the score," he explained. "But the true definition of toughness was what Chris did in taking a punch and then holding everything together and then showing tremendous endurance and resilience in the middle of obstacles."
