It’s been a long year. Some of us took the extra time in lockdown to get fit. Some of us had so much time, we got fit, then fell out of shape, and then got fit again. But the vast majority of people have put on some pandemic weight, as stress, boredom, and a more sedentary lifestyle took their toll.
And you know what? Who the hell cares! If you lived through 2020, your body is doing great. And if you’re having trouble accepting that, just take a look at actor Will Smith.
Smith posted a photo of how he’s looking in Spring of 2021. I think he looks pretty good, but he definitely does not think the same. The 52-year-old captioned the photo of himself standing in a yard in gym trunks with the words, “I’m gonna be real wit yall – I’m in the worst shape of my life.”
Just for comparison, here’s a throwback post to the I Am Legend trailer, which shows the shape Smith was pretty much expected to keep up throughout his long film and television career. His abs have abs:
While that muscular physique has plenty of fans, people seem way, way more excited about Will Smith’s new body.
The comments are filled with celebrities applauded Smith for his honesty, saying he still looks amazing, saying they relate, and shooting their shot. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger told Smith he’s looking better than most of America and to keep pumping:
Clearly, Will Smith is loved no matter how he looks. I’d take a break from working out if I were him, too.
