We would’ve thought Will Smith would be pretty good at sports considering he played Mohammed Ali in a film, but apparently he’s really, really bad, and we have pictures to prove it.
While in London for the Men In Black 3 premiere this weekend the Fresh Prince stopped by the Ethos Sports Centre in South Kensington to meet the athletes and have a little go at the hurdles, boxing, triple jump and basketball.
After meeting Team GB, including Drew Sullivan, who captains the GB basketball team, hurdler Perri Shakes-Drayton, super heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua and triple jumper Yamile Aldama, Will admitted he really isn’t the sporty type.
That’s the first time I’ve ever done the hurdles and the triple jump, and had any interaction with it, so I’m gonna go ice myself down, that stuff is a lot harder than it looks on TV. I’m clearly not a hurdler. That gives you an idea of the peak physical condition that athletes have to be in. I had a little taste of it when I made Ali but there’s a whole other level of conditioning.
Don’t worry Will, you can be on our team any day.
