Will Smith: I Thought About Committing Suicide!!

In a trailer for his new Youtube series, Will Smith admitted that he once thought about committing suicide.

"When I started this show, I thought I was getting into the best shape of my life physically, but mentally I was somewhere else," he says in the clip for "Will Smith: The Best Shape of My Life.". "I ended up discovering a whole lot of hidden things about myself. That was the only time in my life that I ever considered suicide."

He did not say what it was that he discovered about himself or his life that made him want to kill himself.

In the series, he attempts to lose 20 pounds (9 kilograms) in 20 weeks.

"This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry," the actor wrote in an Instagram post earlier this year. "I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins," he said.
