Friends of Tom Cruise like Jennifer Lopez and David Beckham and Will Smith say that, despite his affinity for scientology, he would never pressure them to join the infamous Hollywood cult.  But today, the New York Daily News says Smith has done just that.  Seemingly.

Will Smith has joined the ranks of Hollywood power players actively recruiting for the Church of Scientology.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.Never mind that such tests are given free by the church anyway. The quiz is designed to convert people to the religion by identifying personality flaws that – surprise! – Scientology can fix right up for you.Smith, who is best buddies with Scientology booster Tom Cruise, has never confirmed that he joined the church. But he 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 don't have a bible in front of me, but I'm pretty sure that's not true.  I went to catholic school too and I remember very little about alien wars and evil galactic rulers.  Or maybe that's why all the cool guys did so well in religion class, while I was getting a hand job in the library from their girlfriends.  Golly, I really missed out.
