It has been noted that popular Hollywood star Will Smith’s 2022 Oscar-winning performance in King Richard didn’t actually require him to get great into tennis. However, nearly a couple of years later the movie’s release, it looks like he’s been inspired to take up the sport.
Smith recently had his first lesson and posted about it on social media. As a result, he took fans with him on that journey, and the video is just too funny.
Amidst the actor celebrating Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s 33rd anniversary this week, Will Smith also took to Instagram to share a funny clip of himself getting ready to start tennis lessons. In the humorous footage he shared, one can see the A-lister working on his serve and backhand among other skills. Check it out:
It is needless to say that sometimes the best way to prepare for taking on something new is getting the right outfit down, and Will Smith definitely did that in this case. He looks to be matching head to toe with Lacoste tennis gear, specifically a bright white fit with black and yellow details. And as he shared in the video, “You can’t play tennis without a headband.”
In a recent video, the actor known for his role in Men in Black was captured in a different light as he took a tennis lesson on the court. However, in a rather amusing turn of events, he realized that he had forgotten to wear his headband while playing and became disappointed in himself. He humorously stated that wearing a headband is essential in tennis and he regretted not donning the complete outfit during his lesson.
