Will Smith Reveals Dad Bod Photo And Inspires Other Celebs To Do The Same

Will Smith’s dad bod reveal is inspiring other celeb dads to show off their softer sides!

Earlier this week, Will Smith caused a stir when he shared a hilarious photo of himself looking a bit less fit than he normally is.

“I’m gonna be real wit yall – I’m in the worst shape of my life,” read the post’s caption. Next to the caption, the “Fresh Prince” star stands proudly (sort of) in a pair of slippers, boxer shorts, and an open jacket, revealing a belly and a doughier physique.

Fans responded almost immediately with jokes and applause.

While Questlove commented, “this is the most amazing post in the history of social media,” director Ava DuVernay remarked that she saw “no ‘worst’ here.”

“Shoot ‘I Am Legend – Dad Bod edition’ asap”, wrote one fan, while another remarked that Smith looked “Daddy aF.”

And now Will Smith’s dad bod photo has moved other celebs to go public with photos of what their own bodies look like after more than a year in lockdown.

Mark Wahlberg showed off his rounder-than-normal figure on Tuesday via an Instagram post.

 

“And it looks just as hot in person baby,” the “Spenser Confidential” star’s wife Rhea wrote on Wahlberg’s Instagram post. Wahlberg confirmed his weight gain was for a movie role but it was refreshing nonetheless to see him celebrate his fuller figure.

And fellow actor Jerry O’Connell decided to get in on the fun as well by stripping down to a similar outfit as Smith while recently co-hosting The Talk on Global.

Many of us turned to comfort food (think banana bread and sourdough bread) during the pandemic and are now dealing with the weight gain so it’s nice to see some folks keeping a sense of humor about it. This is one viral trend we hope sticks around.
