Will Smith Speaks About 'The Only Time In My Life That I Considered Suicide'

Actor Will Smith recently admitted he had contemplated suicide during the taping of a YouTube series about physical fitness and weight loss.


In the trailer for “Best Shape of My Life,” Smith says, “This began as a journey to get into the best shape of my life". He has set out to lose 20 pounds in 20 weeks.



The rapper/actor is seen in the trailer for the series writing his memoirs, exercising and sitting around a table with his children Trey, Willow and Jaden.



Smith says in a voiceover for the series which premieres Nov. 8, “When I started this show, I thought I was getting into the best shape of my life physically, 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.”



It’s not clear when the actor had the suicidal thoughts.
