He's known for being in pretty good shape. OK, maybe we're just jealous here. He's known for being in perfect shape, but it seems as if even Will Smith gained a few pounds during lockdown.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air got candid on social media when he posted a shirtless photo of himself on his Instagram account with the caption "I'm gonna be real wit y'all – I'm in the worst shape of my life".

And, just like that, the rest of the world breathed a sigh of relief. The man is human, after all.

The post by the 52-year-old actor attracted comments from fellow celebs, like Arnold Schwarzenegger who said "Will, you poor baby, I'm crying for you, even though you're still in better shape than 90% of America, keep pumping".

QuestLove commented "This is the most amazing post in the history of social media".

On his show, Trevor Noah called the post "refreshing, because so many people lie on social media".

Since the post went viral and it felt like we really had a Bad Boy for life in Will Smith, he has since partnered up with YouTube to document his weight-loss journey.

The documentary will feature what he has to do to get "in the best shape of (his) life".

Now you see, that's the part where this friendship ends. Can't we just watch?

Have a look at the Access Online video below to see what the fuss is about.
