Will Smith has hit back at claims he and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith have been recruited by the Church of Scientology. Recent reports claimed the couple had started following the controversial faith, on the advice of close pals Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. But Smith insists he chooses to study religions, without subscribing to any one. He says, "You don't have to be Jewish to be a friend of Steven Spielberg. You don't have to be a Muslim to be a friend of Muhammad Ali. And you don't have to be a Scientologist to be a friend of Tom Cruise. I am a Christian. I am a student of all religions. And I respect all people and all paths." A spokesman for Smith adds, "As Will Smith's publicist I can tell you with 100 per cent certainty that Will is not a Scientologist."
