Actor Will Smith recently admitted that he considered committing suicide while recording a YouTube series on fitness and weight loss.
It started as a journey to get into the best shape of my life, the 53-year-old actor said in the trailer for 'The Best Fitness of My Life,' in which he sets out to lose 20 pounds in 20 weeks.
In the trailer for the series, the Aladdin actor can be seen writing his memoirs, exercising and sitting around a table with his children Trey, 28, Willow, 20, and Jaden, 23, according to the US Sun.
When I started this series, I thought I was getting into the best shape of my life physically, but mentally, I was somewhere else, he said in a voiceover for the series, which debuts Nov. 8. I ended up discovering a whole bunch of hidden things about myself. That was the only time in my life I considered suicide.
It's not clear when the actor had those suicidal thoughts.
