Will Smith has been praised by fans after he posted a candid picture of himself in his pants on Instagram and admitted “I’m in the worst shape of my life.”

The 52-year-old star of Men in Black and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has been in the public spotlight for the majority of his life and we all know how much people can scrutinise celebrities for their looks.

However, Smith has flipped the notion that the rich and famous should have perfect bodies with a simple but hilarious picture of himself outdoors wearing nothing but his briefs, a tracksuit top and a pair of slippers.

Smith added: “I’m gonna real wit yall - I’m in the worst shape of my life.”

Even though Smith doesn’t look in bad shape at all it is still refreshing to see someone of his status be so open about being unable to stay fit, especially during the pandemic.
