It's hard to imagine Will Smith in anything but tip-top shape, but The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Bad Boys For Life star admitted this week that even he's not been immune to adding a couple of pounds to his frame amid the pandemic.

Will took to his Instagram account on Monday (May 3) to share a snap of himself shirtless in an unzipped jacket and some *seriously* tiny shorts, as he hinted he may not have been working out as hard as he used to (and, really, who could blame him?)

"I’m gonna be real wit yall," the 52-year-old wrote in the caption, "I’m in the worst shape of my life."

It's not clear if the star just decided to cut back on the workouts or if his new look was for a role, though Will's followers (including some famous faces) had his back in the comments section.

Lewis Hamilton commented with a crying laughing emoji, while musician Questlove wrote: "This is the most amazing post in the history of social media."

Will's longtime bestie DJ Jazzy Jeff also shared his two cents, joking: "We’re twins..."

The star's candid post came just weeks after he teamed up with his Bad Boys co-star Martin Lawrence on the social media site to celebrate the 26th anniversary of the original movie.

Will shared a video of the duo in April alongside the caption: "When we say FOR LIFE we mean it. Bad Boys came out 26 years ago today! @martinlawrence."

The video used CGI to show the actors as they look today replaced by themselves 26 years ago in 1995.
