Will Smith is a living proof that being in good shape on the outside does not solve what is inside because he has just revealed that he once considered suicide.
Smith revealed his revelation in a trailer for his YouTube documentary series, “Will Smith: The Best Shape of My Life.” The doctor follows his journey, where he loses 20 kg in 20 weeks, but the weight loss regime opens a door to some basic problems in his life.
He says, “When I started this show, I thought I was getting in 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. “
He comes up with a blunt reference in a conversation with his family … “It was the only time in my life I ever considered suicide.” He does not give context to that, but he probably opens it up in the documentaries.
BTW … the documentaries that came out Friday coincide with the release of his upcoming memoir, in which he says he “exhibits my life and so many things that people do not know.”
Will makes it clear to his fans … what you see on screen is not true – “What you have come to understand as Will Smith, the alien-wiped MC, movie star who is bigger than life, is in very much a construction, a carefully crafted and refined character designed to protect myself, to hide myself from the world. To hide the coward. “
