Once the Fresh Prince, ALWAYS the Fresh Prince!
Sunday on Instagram, Will Smith posted a photo of himself wearing an open track jacket, boxer briefs, and slippers, in which he declared himself to be in the “worst shape of my life.”
“I’m gonna be real wit yall - I’m in the worst shape of my life,” he captioned the snap in which he appears to be near a lake.
Immediately after the pic went viral, an overwhelming number of the 52-year-old’s famous friends wrote messages of support in the comments section.
“Will, you poor baby, I’m crying for you, even though you’re still in better shape than 90% of America. Keep pumping!” wrote actor and former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“Well...let’s get the band back together?? ‘Bad Boys’ Final chapter. You’ll get in shape I guarantee you!” commented director Michael Bay.
“You look good!” added Amy Schumer.
“------- love it. That’s confidence....” chimed in Joel Kinnaman.
Though Smith appears to be dissatisfied with his fitness and nutrition routines, he did stay extremely busy during the quarantine.
Last November, HBO Max aired a reunion special honoring the 30-year anniversary of his iconic sitcom, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
In the special — which featured former castmates including Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey Butler), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian Banks), Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), and DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz) — Smith sat down with Janet Hubert, who originally played Aunt Viv until 1993, to squash their highly publicized feud.
Additionally, during an interview with the “Pod Save America” podcast in March, Smith says he has not ruled out the possibility of running for president of the United States.
“I think for now I’ll let that office get cleaned up a little bit and then I’ll consider that at some point down the line,” Smith told host Jon Favreau.
Regardless of whether he ventures into politics or not, Smith says he will continue to use his platform to speak out on important issues.
“I don’t know. It’s like, I absolutely have an opinion. I’m optimistic. I’m hopeful,” he said. “I believe in understanding between people and I believe in the possibility of harmony. So, I will certainly do my part, whether it remains artistic or at some point ventures into the political arena.”
