Meanwhile, Will Smith revealed last year that there had been a time in his life during which he contemplated suicide.

In the trailer for documentary Will Smith: The Best Shape of My Life, the actor discusses his mental health struggles.

“When I started this show, I thought I was getting into the best shape of my life, physically,” he said. “But, mentally, I was somewhere else. 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”, Smith tells his family of hitting rock bottom, although the clip doesn’t provide further context.

Will Smith most recently starred in King Richard as Richard Williams, the father and coach of tennis superstars Venus and Serena.

In a three-star review of the film, NME wrote: “When it comes to filmmaking, director Reinaldo Marcus Green (Top Boy) serves up a heartwarming dose of inspiration, with the young Saniyya Sidney (Venus) and Demi Singleton (Serena) gracefully stepping out of Smith’s shadow in much the same way as their real-life characters did.”
