Will Smith Opens Up About Suicidal Thoughts In New YouTube Docu-Series

Like many of us, the pandemic took a toll on Will Smith's mental and physical health. The actor updated fans on Instagram that, over quarantine, he was focused on getting into the best shape of his life -- a journey that he's currently sharing on his now streaming six-part docu-series available on YouTube. While showcasing the actor's workout regiment the official trailer for "Will Smith: The Best Shape Of My Life", Smith details underlying mental health problems that he faced while trying to lose 20 pounds in twenty weeks.

Smith reveals he came to realize he "didn't know" much about himself in the process of working on his autobiography. Another scene of the Smith family at a round table revealed snippets of a conversation where Smith says, "that was the only time in my life that I ever considered suicide." The actor explains in a voice over that beyond getting into shape, "The Best Shape Of My Life" will dive into his most vulnerable side.
