Will Smith isn’t just talking about improving his health he is making it happen!

On Thursday, the actor hit social media to show off his workout routine and to express how disgusted he was with his post quarantine physique.

“That is so nasty,” the 52-year-old actor is heard saying at the top of a video as he spins around shirtless on a platform. The video continues with compiled clips of Smith doing squats, pull ups and lifting weights.

He captioned the video with, “The Pursuit of Happyness.” Back in 2006, Smith starred in a movie with his son Jaden Smith of the same name.

Considering Smith is in nothing but boxers, some users joked that he is doubling as an underwear model.

“Is this an underwear ad cos I didn’t see nothing else,” joked a user.

Smith announced earlier this month that he is collaborating with YouTube to document his weight loss journey for a new original series set to debut next year.
