Will Smith Reveals He ‘Considered Suicide’ In New Trailer For His Docu-Series, The Best Shape Of My Life

Will Smith is exposing it all to the world. 

What set out as a journey to lose weight, seemed to be the biggest role of the actor’s life. In his new docu-series, The Best Shape of my Life, Will Smith reveals he ‘once considered’ suicide, proving that getting shape is not just about the physical but the mental too. 

Earlier this yearWill Smith declared that he was in the worst shape of his life after posing shirtless in shorts and a jacket on Instagram. 

After deciding to drop 20 pounds, the I-Robot star partnered with YouTube to film his weight loss journey however, it seemingly exposed more than just bad eating habits. In the trailer, Will Smith says, 

“When I started this show, I thought I was getting into the best shape of my life physically, [but] Mentally, I was somewhere else, and I ended up discovering a whole lot of hidden things about myself.”

In another clip, surrounded by his family he said, 

“That was the only time in my life I ever considered suicide.”

The trailer for his new series comes days after his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith made headlines concerning their sex life. On an episode of Red Table Talk, Jada said, 

It’s hard! The thing Will and I talk about a lot is the journey. We started in this at a very young age, 22 years old…I think you expect your partner to know [what you need], especially when it comes to sex. It’s like, ‘Well if you love me, you should know. If you love me, you should read my mind.’ That’s a huge pitfall.”

Jada later clarified her comments tweeting, 

Only because I got time today. Stop making up headlines. Watch the @RedTableTalk I did with @GwynethPaltrow for yourselves. Will and I have NEVER had an issue in the bedroom. Thank you”

The Best Shape of My Life will premiere on YouTube on Nov. 8th, 2021.
