It was the type of image his Fresh Prince of Bel Air character might have taken had selfies been all the rage in the early 1990s.
Like many visitors to Italy, Will Smith was so over overwhelmed with the wonder that is Pisa's Leaning Tower during a holiday in Tuscany last week that he posted a selfie with the monument in the background on Facebook.
The image soon went viral, being shared over 39,000 times and garnering more than three million 'likes'.
He wrote: “Selfie with the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I am Anthony Bourdain!!”, referring to the American chef, author and intrepid traveller.
