Will Smith Slims Down For New Role in the Movie “I Am Legend”.

November 8, 2007

You Guys Have to Check Out Will Smith’s New Look!
Will Smith

[Will slimmed down quite a bit for this role and looks great.]

Will Smith Has Been in Good Shape for a Long Time

I have followed Will Smith’s career ever since The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. I like Will Smith, because he is generally just a really positive guy. The amazing thing about him is that he has stayed in great shape for years. The first time I realized he was extremely fit was back in 1995 when “Bad Boys” came out. He got pretty ripped for that movie.

He Bulked up For His Role in Ali

He got pretty darn muscular and bulky as Ali. He slimmed down again for Bad Boys II and since that time he hasn’t really had a role where he has had to get into great shape. Well he looks better than ever for his newest role as Robert Neville in I Am Legend

Will Smith Has the Exact Look I Promote on This Site

Will Smith leaned down substantially to play his role as scientist who is the only uninfected human left on earth. Will is 6’2″ (1.88m) tall and has a naturally thin frame. He has probably been around 205-210 pounds (93-96kg) for a number of years, since he actually does have a decent amount of muscle. I am estimating him at close to 185-190 (84-86kg) in his newest role. He also looks to be around 6-8% body fat. He dropped a bit of muscle and body fat for this new role and he looks better than ever.

Will’s Face Looks Better at This Lower Body Fat Level

When a man gets below 10% body fat his jaw line sharpens up. You can definitely see a sharpness to his face when compared to his role in The Pursuit of Happiness. He body mass is a lot slimmer and more compact than it has ever been. He has achieved a really clean look because of this…and looks better in clothes as well. Clothes look better on slim guys, that is why male models are 6’1″ (1.85m) and typically around 165-180 pounds (65-81kg).

Is Will Smith the New Fitness Role Model for Men?

I think Will has the ideal proportions…so yes, he is an amazing role model. He obviously has hit hit the carido hard and tightened up his diet. He is 39 years old and is in better shape than most 20 year-olds. I guarantee you that women find him sexier than ever…he would be a great guy to emulate. I actually can’t think of a better fitness role model for men.

What Do You Guys and Girls Think?

Is this a good look for him?

Terrell Owens is actually an ectomorph. In high school and college he was on the slim side, weighing 185 pounds at 6’3. However, he’s bulked up over 40 pounds (mainly muscle) and now he sports a rather impressive physique. Slim guys, who are still muscular tend to be among the most athletic people.

I am 6’2 and currently weigh in at 210 lbs. ( My heaviest weight ever ). I’ve been as low as 180 . I def. need to drop 20 lbs. to get back to a llean weight. I looked up actors who are my height and who got in great shape for certain movie roles ( Hugh Jackman in Wolverine, Ryan Ryenolds in Blade Trinity, Gerald Butler in 300, Will Smith in I am Legend ). Does anyone know how much these guys weighed in for these roles and what they’re Diet and trainig routines were like ? Also, to drop 20 lbs. how many calories and amount of cardio should I do along with weight training ? I was thinking of consuming 3000 calories a day, with 300 g. protein and 300 g. of carbs a day ( no carbs past 7:00 p.m. ), and lifting heavy weights for 30 min. with 20-25. min. on the treadmill or Rowing machine. High Intensity training for cardio. Thanks for the insight and help – Michael

I am 6’5 1/2 and I currently weigh 242.5 pounds. I’ve been trying to find the right balance between being really big and ripped. My workout routine is:

Mondays: Chest and Triceps
Tuesday: Biceps and Back
Wednesday: 90 minutes of cardio
Thursday: legs
Fridays: shoulders
saturdays: 90 minutes of cardio

things to note: after each sesseion i do 4 sets of 50 crunches and back stretches.

Thats my workout at the moment. The two main problems for me at the moment are my chest and my abs, well the lower ones. my chest is sort of slanty, i want the whole muscle to be even like Wills’ but my mid chest area is a lot bigger than my upper chest. and getting ripped abdominals is extremely hard for me. I have a 4 pack but getting the 3rd set is almost impossible. I changed my diet round last week and quit drinking completely for the forseeable future. How do I achieve a flat ripped chest like that?
Also, I don’t ever want to use any supplements. Is it possible to achieve a 7% body fat percentage. All my cardio is done in the gym as my knees are wobbly so i can’t run outside.

Hi to all! Great article and great info on Will Smith. I find him to be one of the best role models out there.

Ok so here is me.. 6ft. 228 pounds. Due to a car acc and immobilization i gained a lot of weight. Former basketball player and swimmer.
A lot of road to achieve my final goal but getting started strong. Would like to achieve a body like W.Smith has on I, Robot.

How is W. smith on I am legend 182 and looks like that????? When i drop at approximately 193pounds i look sooo slim!! Everyone is like STOP losing weight.

Different body types perhaps? If i try to go like 182 i would look like a corpse, and i’m also 1inch shorter than Smith.
Also my bone structure is kind on the heavy side: my wrists are 8inches.

>What would be a good weight-BF ratio for me to look like Will is looking on I,Robot?

You all take care, and look forward for your reply 🙂

Hey guys,I am 6ft and only 160lbs at 10% body fat.I am physically a lot younger than almost all guys my age.I think I’ll hit 180-190 lbs as I mature.so need I push it of just stay trim and healthy…??

As a former trainer: I have always pushed for resistance training along with mega cardio. Soo many people I know insist that they will do the weights once they lose the fat.–It never seems to happen. Even if a few do lose the weight: they look like they have a terminal illness because they are so devoid of muscle. Ya gotta do the weights along with the cardip.

You have a great site–Montgomery is awesome!!
