Will Smith honored his twin siblings, Harry and Ellen Smith, on their 50th birthday by posting a rare photo with his family members.

"My little brother & sister are 50 today! Damn," the 52-year old actor captioned a photo shared on Instagram Wednesday.

The image showed Smith gathered with four of his family members: Harry, his half-sister Ashley Marie Pettway Smith, Ellen, and Pamela Smith.

The photo included two arrows pointed at the twins, along with the phrase: "Happy Birthday, Jokas!"

Harry also posted photos from his 50th-birthday celebration on his Instagram account. He thanked the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" star "for this wonderful outing and for always being there when I needed you most."

In his lengthy caption, he gushed about family members like Jada Pinkett Smith (who's been married to Will since 1997) for their support.

Meanwhile, Ellen posted a video showing off her birthday and various flower bouquets she received.

Little is known about Will's siblings, but he has previously posted about Harry and Ellen.

In February, the actor shared a throwback photo with the twins, along with an updated selfie of the trio.

He captioned the post: "40 years later, STILL can't take a decent photo with these jokas!! #tbt ❤️❤️."

"I agree celebs shouldn't be making these creepy desperate video replies on Raya," Teigen tweeted after videos surfaced of the two actors on TikTok.

“It takes 1.5 hours to tame this mane.”

“Biden isn’t the next FDR,” tweets former president’s son. “He’s the next Jimmy Carter” Donald Trump Jr. faced immediate backlash Friday for trying to own not only current President Joe Biden, but also former President, Jimmy Carter. “Biden isn’t the next FDR he’s the next Jimmy Carter,” wrote former president Donald Trump’s son on Twitter, a platform from which his father is banned. Although Trump junior seemingly was suggesting that Biden would become a one-term president like Carter, who served from 1977-1981, social media took him to task and schooled him on Carter’s accomplishments… and integrity. “I cannot think of a nicer compliment than to be compared to Jimmy Carter,” replied political commentator Travis Akers. “An honorable, compassionate, and loving Christian man, loyal to his bride, Jimmy Carter is still teaching Sunday School and building homes for Habitat for Humanity in his 90s.” Other replies were less charitable. “Your father created fewer jobs than Jimmy Carter. Jimmy Carter didn’t kill 500,000 Americans. Preisdent Carter didn’t try to [overthrow the government] when he lost,” wrote Democratic activist Chris Hahn, referring to Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as well as the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol that his supporters instigated when he lost to Biden. Former Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh continued his newfound pattern of criticizing right-wing figureheads, writing, “Hey Jr, I don’t know about that, but I do know that Biden beat your daddy pretty soundly.” “God, are you still a thing? I had blissfully forgotten you even existed for a couple months there,” mused author Michael Marshall Smith. “Also, Jimmy Carter is ten times the man your father is, and twenty times the man you’ll ever be.” The younger Trump was defensive. After Carter’s name began trending on the micro-blogging platform, he seized on the description Twitter provided for the trend, which said users were “confused” by his comparison. “Anyone who is supposedly ‘confused,’ by my below tweet should probably read the awful Biden job report out today, then take a peek at the rising prices of raw materials that we’re seeing and then finally google ‘Jimmy Carter inflation’….Things will make a lot more sense to you!” he wrote. As far as the jobs report released Friday by the Labor Department, the economy added 266,000 jobs in April, falling far below the million jobs economists expected. “Our efforts are starting to work. But the climb is steep, and we’ve got a long way to go,” Biden said in response to the report. “We’re still digging out of an economic collapse that cost us 22 million jobs.” Read original story Trump Jr Trounced for Jimmy Carter-Joe Biden 1-Term Dig At TheWrap

Will Smith Shouts Out His Twin Siblings With Rare Family Photo on Instagram

Just Jared 08 May, 2021 - 02:00am

Will Smith very rarely posts about his own siblings on social media.

However, in a rare movie, the 52-year-old Bad Boys 4 Life actor shared a photo of him in the middle of the pack with his four siblings.

The photo also doubled as a celebratory post for his twin siblings birthday.

Click inside to see the photo now!

“My little brother & sister are 50 today!” Will announced to his 53 million followers.

In the image, Will stands tall in the middle with twins Harry and Ellen, their older sister Pamela and younger half-sister Ashley Marie Pettway Smith.

After his post, Will linked up with YouTube for a new six-episodes webseries that will see him embark on a fitness quest to conquer middle age and “get his groove back along the way.”

No, Will Smith Isn't a Body Positivity Icon

InsideHook 07 May, 2021 - 05:15pm

That’s pretty relatable these days, as we’re all coming off a year of eating our feelings while stuck at home, and naturally folks on the internet rushed to praise the actor for being brave enough to show off his gut and compliment his “body positivity.” “We Salute Will Smith For Living His Damn Life,” one headline read. “Will Smith Flaunting His Dad Bod on Instagram is Inspiring Dads to Flaunt Their Own,” said another. But the following day, Smith followed up the post with some news that makes it clear the whole thing is less about body positivity than it is about getting paid to get fit.

“This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry,” he wrote in his follow-up post. “I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins…this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!!” Smith also broke the news that he’s teaming up with YouTube on a new series that will chronicle his attempts to “get my health & wellness back on track.” CNN reports that the six-part series is tentatively titled “Best Shape of My Life” and will feature Smith “rebuilding his body into the best shape of his life and getting his groove back along the way.”

“This is the fun, funny, inspirational, wildly adventurous, and deeply entertaining story of Smith challenging himself to improve every aspect of his fitness, from agility to power to recovery and more,” YouTube’s description of the series reads.

So let’s be real: Smith is not “embracing his dad bod,” as so many were quick to claim. In fact, he’s doing everything he can to get rid of it, and most annoyingly, he’s getting paid to do it. There’s no “body positivity” here, nor is there anything relatable; Smith is taking advantage of the fact that he’s rich and famous enough to have access to the best trainers, nutritionists and personal chefs money can buy to help him lose weight, and he’s cashing a check for it. Despite the obligatory disclaimer that he loves his current body, he’s clearly presenting the “worst shape of his life” — which, to be clear, is still better shape than plenty of people are in — as something that needs to be corrected.

Of course, he’s totally entitled to lose weight if he wants to, and we can’t begrudge anyone for trying to get healthier, but we can’t call it “body positivity.”

Will Smith Just Shared a Rare Photo of His Twin Siblings—& One of Them Looks Just Like Him

Who’s the twin after all? Fans got a rare look at Will Smith‘s twin siblings when the Bad Boys for Life actor shared a photo on social media wishing his little brother and sister a happy birthday. Surprisingly, it was actually Will’s resemblance to one of them in particular that had fans talking.

The fraternal twins, Harry and Ellen, celebrated their 50th trip around the sun on Wednesday, May 5. Their big brother Will, 52, took to Instagram that day to share a family photo in honor of their special day, writing, “Happy birthday Jokas,” in the flick. He went on to caption the post, “My little brother & sister are 50 today! Damn.” Fans in the comments immediately started sharing their birthday well-wishes, with many insisting that they couldn’t believe Ellen and Harry’s age. “Little??? Maaan, how old are you then… incredible. You guys dont age at all,” one fan wrote. “Hang on 50?” another fan commented, while a third revealed they needed to go Google Will’s age.

But it wasn’t just the Smith family’s impressive genetics that had fans shocked. There were a number of commenters who were mostly blown away by the fact that Will has twin siblings. To their credit, Will doesn’t often post family photos on social media, so the news of his little brother and sister being twins is sure to come as a surprise to many. However, the Men in Black alum has shared a few pics to Instagram with his siblings and parents in the past.

In February 2021, Will posted a throwback photo of himself with Harry and Ellen as kids alongside another flick of the trio today. “40 years later, STILL can’t take a decent photo with these jokas!!” Will captioned the post, adding the hashtag #TBT and two red-heart emojis. Fans at the time couldn’t help but notice that Will bore a striking resemblance to his little brother, Harry—much like he does in the birthday post shared in early May.

Not too much is known about Will’s siblings, as the actor often keeps that side of his family private. What we do know is that Ellen is believed to be a hair and makeup artist, whereas Harry also works in the entertainment industry like his brother. He founded Treyball Development Inc. with Will in 1998 and worked with him at Overbrook Entertainment in California before eventually launching his own company, Smith Global Media, in 2017. Will also has an older sister, Pamela, who is the owner of a boutique store in Philadelphia.

Does Will Smith Have a Twin?

Snopes.com 07 May, 2021 - 10:24am

y'all made me think Will Smith had a twin

— Adam Lance Garcia (@AdamLanceGarcia) May 6, 2021

On May 5, 2021, Smith posted a picture on his verified Instagram account wishing his brother and sister a happy birthday, saying “My little brother & sister are 50 today!”

Smith himself is not a twin, but he has two siblings who are. 

His twin siblings, Ellen and Harry, are younger than Smith by around two years. They also have an older sister named Pamela who is 57. 

Given that Smith has two siblings who are twins but he himself does not have a twin, we rate this claim as “False.”

“My little brother & sister are 50 today!” wrote Smith in the caption, accompanied by a photo of himself arm in arm with Harry and Ellen, his twin siblings. Also pictured are Smith’s older sister Pamela and younger half-sister Ashley Marie Pettway Smith.

“A little surprise 50th Bday boating!!! Thanks @willsmith for this wonderful outing and for always being there when I needed you most. I am so blessed to have reached this milestone,” read the caption.

The family photo came days after Smith made headlines for posting a photo of himself shirtless on Instagram and making fun of his physique. “I’m gonna be real wit yall – I’m in the worst shape of my life,” wrote Smith for the post, before confirming that he would be teaming up with YouTube to work out in a later post.

However, the photo received positive praise from celebrities, with actress Amy Schumer, rapper Questlove and singer Sonna Rele commenting. “You’re Will Smith!! You can be in whatever shape you want,” said Rele.
