The Aladin star recently engaged in an intense workout routine following the realisation that he wanted to get back in shape. Smith is releasing a series of Youtube Originals to record and document his change while also talking about his life in general.

The Best Shape Of My Life will reportedly take a dive into the personal life and struggles of Smith, touching on mental health, general wellbeing, and how it has affected him for years.

In a trailer released for the six-part series, Smith addresses his family.

"That was the only time in my life that I ever considered suicide," he says.

The trailer then ends with Smith reading out a particularly emotional excerpt from his new book.

Starting to tear up, the actor continues, saying: "What you've come to understand as Will Smith, the alien-annihilating MC, bigger-than-life movie star, is largely a construction, a carefully crafted and honed character designed to protect myself, to hide myself from the world.

"To hide the coward."

In other Smith family news, matriarch Jada Pinkett Smith once again opened up about the couples sex life. Speaking on her critically acclaimed podcast Red Table Talk, Pinkett Smith said: "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."

She continued: "We started in this at a very young age, you know, 22 years old," she added. "That's why the accountability part really hit for me because I think you expect your partner to know, especially when it comes to sex."
