American actor Will Smith confessed that he was in the “worst shape” of his life in his recent post on Instagram. The 52-year-old actor wrote, “I’m gonna wit yall - I’m in the worst shape of my life”, with a picture showing his naked upper body and abdomen. In another post, he wrote that that was the body that “carried through an entire pandemic”. It has left the social media users in splits.

The star actor has exposed himself in the most honest manner about gaining that extra weight amid the COVID-19 pandemic without shying away from revealing it. Smith in the post wore a tight pair of shorts and an unzipped jacket exposing his belly and upper body. And in another post. He wore just the pair of black shorts. In almost a day, the older of the two posts has garnered over six million likes and almost 93,000 comments. The other post has garnered over eight million views in about an hour. In the comments section, friends and fans have applauded for his honesty, while many saw the funny side of it.  "This is the most amazing post in the history of social media", wrote musician Ahmir Khalib. "You're Will Smith!! You can be in whatever shape you want", wrote British singer-songwriter SonnaRele.
