Will Smith doesn't think of himself as a sex symbol.

In fact, the 46-year-old Focus star told Ellen DeGeneres "it feels weird" that people think he's sexy! "It really is it's a strange thing to be considered," he said Tuesday. "When I think sexy, I look at Denzel [Washington]...Now that's a sexy man! You know, I never thought of myself in that way, so it's fun."

"I was a late bloomer," said Will. "Probably right around 26 or 27 years old, I started to fill out a little bit...I've always been skinny...But, I grew into my ears, I guess you could say."

Will really started working on his fitness before he and Margot Robbie, 24, shot Focus (which hits theaters Friday). His wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, googled the Aussie stunner, and as Will puts it, "Jada looked at Margot, and said, 'Boy, you need to get to the gym right now.'"

So he did—and it shows! Will joked about his "skinny" 16-year-old son Jaden Smith asking when he would bulk up like dad. "I say, 'Boy this is man meat! That's chicken breast,'" Will said with a laugh. "'You're not gonna have this for a while!'"

Jaden's got genetics working in his favor, though. His dad built up quite a muscular physique, and mom Jada has always been in excellent shape. The 43-year-old actress will hopefully get to show off her incredible body in Magic Mike XXL, where she will definitely be surrounded by lots of sexy, stripping men!

"Yeah, so everywhere I go there's someone who's been in their underwear with my wife," Will told Ellen. Does that make him a little jealous, perhaps? Watch the clip above to see what Will has to say about Jada working with some of Hollywood's hottest, half-naked hunks!
