WILL SMITH and his wife JADA have donated $1.3 million (GBP866,000) to charitable causes in the last year - including $122,500 (GBP81,666) to best pal TOM CRUISE's Scientology religion.
Tax returns for the Men In Black actor's charitable Will Smith Foundation show he and his wife gave vast amounts of money to a number of religious, civic and arts groups in 2007, according to Foxnews.com.
