Will Smith is supposedly a Scientologist again



Tbdwillsmith063008 We've said Will Smith was flirting with Scientology before, but Life & Style reports that the Fresh Prince was still up to his purported preachiness on the set of his upcoming flick, Hancock. Convenient that this comes out just as it's getting ready to open, yes?

"He gave out Scientology-like pamphlets at the end of the shoot," says writer Andrew Morton, the guy who was getting sued by Tom Cruise for writing an unauthorized biography about him last year. He's an authority, you know. "It's also been said that he and Jada are homeschooling their children in Scientology methods."

That probably comes from rumors that the couple are financing the New Village Academy in Calabasas, Calif., this fall. The school is supposed to have Scientology ties, but we don't go there, so we don't know. We do know the academy told the L.A. Times it's a nonreligious school, though.

The summation from Morton: “So between that, the pamphlets, the school in Calabasas, and his close friendship with Tom, it seems all the evidence leads one to conclude that he is a part of this organization.”

And by that logic, the fact that The Juice* owns a Tampa Bay Rays cap, attends games, watches them on TV and is a big Akinori Iwamura fan, means we'll be playing shortstop next week. It's true!
