It takes a lot of hard work to get rid of that dad bod and get back in shape, ask Will Smith. The actor, after gaining extra kilos by "grazing through the pantry" during the "entire pandemic," wanted to feel better and fit, so, he started working out. And we must add, intensely. On Friday, Will Smith shared a video showing how much he has transformed physically and how dedicated he is to get back those abs. We must say, he is almost there. The video starts with Will Smith showing his dad bod with much pride, because he "loves that body," and moves on to show his intense workout routine. Sharing the clip, the 52-year-old actor wrote: "The Pursuit Of Happyness." See what he did there?
