After his ‘Unrecognizable’ appearance, Will Smith has been chastised.
Will Smith has sparked a lot of discussion online after he appeared to be almost unrecognizable during his most recent TV interview.
The 53-year-old actor, who rose to fame in the 1990s on the TV showThe Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, appeared on BBC’s The One Show on Wednesdays, but it wasn’t his discussion of his new filmKing Richard that drew the most attention.
Instead, Smith’s “unrecognizable” appearance was the topic of conversation on social media.
Smith wore a purple shirt and patterned tie while on the show to promote the upcoming Reinaldo Marcus Green-directed biographical drama.
He kept his facial hair the way it was.
While there were no visible changes, many viewers felt something was off about Smith’s appearance, prompting a social media frenzy, with one person even saying the man on the screen “looks like a Will Smith impersonator,” while others said they couldn’t tell who he was.
‘I’d like to give a shout-out to the Surprise Squad.
It’s a lovely endeavor.’
Will Smith talks about our (hashtag)SurpriseSquad, a group of five inspiring young people who have all been helped by (hashtag)ChildreninNeed and want to give back.
“Will Smith is currently on BBC1… he doesn’t look like Will Smith.”
It’s unmistakably him.
However, this is not the case.
“Perhaps it’s the goatee,” one person speculated on the internet, while another tweeted that Smith “looks like a Pixar version of himself.”
What are you talking about?
“Had to get the program info up on the one show to make sure it was actually him,” one viewer shared, “you know when a person doesn’t look like themselves when they don’t have their glasses on? Will Smith on The One Show looks a little odd.”
“How does Will Smith look the same now as he did in the fresh prince days?” a fourth person wondered.
While Smith hasn’t responded to the online chatter, and fans are still stumped as to what’s causing his “unrecognizable” appearance, the rumor began shortly after the actor revealed he’d lost weight.
Smith admitted to his followers in May that he was “in the worst shape of my life,” and in the months since, he has worked to lose the weight he gained during the coronavirus pandemic, sharing in October that he was “in the best shape of my life.”
