Will Smith Says He's in 'Worst Shape' of His Life | 22 Words

Will Smith has received widespread praise after he shared shirtless photos showing how he is in "the worst shape" of his life.

And just when we thought we couldn't love him any more!


The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor has always been refreshingly candid when it comes to his personal life, so this isn't the first time fans have applauded him for keeping it so real.

For example...


Last year, his marriage was thrown into the spotlight when rapper August Alsina alleged that he and Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, had had an affair.

August also claimed that their relationship, which spanned for years, "was approved by her husband Will."


In an interview with The Breakfast Club's Angela Yee, August said:

"I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to their life partnership that they spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing."

Following his shock revelation, Jada's rep quickly told Page Six that the singer's claims were "absolutely not true," and that the entire thing had been made up.


Jada herself then took matters into her own hands by writing on Twitter:

"There's some healing that needs to happen…so I'm bringing myself to The Red Table," she wrote bluntly.

Jada then hauled herself and Will onto her own Facebook-based discussion show, Red Table Talk...

Where she admitted to having an "entanglement" with August.

"It was a relationship, absolutely," she confessed. "I was in a lot of pain, and I was very broken. In the process of that relationship, I definitely realized that you can't find happiness outside yourself. I just wanted to feel good, It had been so long since I felt good... and it was really a joy to just help heal somebody."​

But, of course, all eyes were upon Will...

With fans noting how heartbroken the star looked throughout his wife's infidelity confession.

But now, just when we thought the love for Will couldn't get any higher...

Fans are once again celebrating the actor, but for a different reason entirely.

​Will recently took to Instagram to share his "post-pandemic" body with the world.


Yep, like many of us, the actor, who had to be in excellent shape for action movies such as I Am Legend and I, Robot, has put on a little weight thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, restrictions, and lockdowns.

But instead of hiding away in shame...


He has decided to embrace his lockdown body and share it with his 53.1 million strong Instagram following.

People are loving Will's honesty...

He first shared this photo:

Writing, "I'm gonna be real wit yall - I'm in the worst shape of my life."

And then came this boomerang video.

Here, he revealed that he is teaming up with YouTube to create an original series that documents his fitness journey. He wrote:

"This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry. I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins…this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!! Teaming up with @YouTube to get my health & wellness back on track. Hope it works!"

A release date for the series is yet to be confirmed.
