Will Smith appeared on BBC's The One Show via video link on Wednesday night to promote his new film King Richard.

And viewers were left baffled by his 'unrecognisable' appearance, with many taking to Twitter to ask 'what has he done to his face?'

'What has he done to his face?' Will Smith, 53, baffled viewers as he looked 'unrecognisable' during appearance via video link on The One Show on Wednesday night to promote his new film King Richard 

'What's up with Will Smith's face??' one viewer asked online, as well as one who said, 'Will Smith doesn't look like Will Smith'.

One suggested he looks the same as he did when he debuted on NBC TV series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, while another described his appearance on The One Show as 'robotic'.  

Will appeared on the BBC show to discuss his latest film King Richard, which is based on the life of Richard Williams, played by Will, who helped his daughters, Serena and Venus Williams, navigate their early lives as professional athletes.

Speaking to hosts Zoe Ball and Jermaine Jenas, Will revealed how at first, Serena and Venus, did not give the film their blessing.

'Venus and Serena when the idea came up they were a little hesitant, and they said they would executive produce the film but would wait until they saw the movie until they decided to put their names on it,' he said.

'But they were so honoured, they agreed to put their names on the film. And when you make a movie like this there really is only one audience, and it's the people you are depicting.

'And when they walked out of that theatre and agreed to put their names on this movie, it was one of the highest points in my career.'
