Will Smith is Tom Cruise’s best friend, so it really shouldn’t be a big surprise that Smith has now joined the Church of Scientology and is openly recruiting others. New York Daily News says:
Big stars traditionally distribute “wrap presents” to crew members after completing a film. His recent gift after wrapping next summer’s comedy “Hancock” was a card good for a personality test at your local Scientology center….The quiz is designed to convert people to the religion by identifying personality flaws that – surprise! – Scientology can fix right up for you…[Smith]told “Access Hollywood” last month: “I was introduced to it by Tom, and I’m a student of world religion. I was raised in a Baptist household. I went to a Catholic school, but the ideas of the Bible are 98% the same ideas of Scientology, 98% the same ideas of Hinduism and Buddhism.”
I wonder if Will Smith could pick out a bible out in a lineup, because I’ve looked, and I can’t find the part where Jesus flies a spaceship and battles a giant alien warlord. Maybe that’s because Scientology would make more sense if it was based on Donkey Kong or microwave instructions.
