Is good friend with Tom Cruise, who's a Scientology devotee, Will Smith reportedly has become the latest Hollywood celeb who embraced the bizarre sci-fi cult.

The actor, whose wife Jada Pinkett Smith is a Scientologist as well, is said to have been recruiting members for the Church of Scientology. He, as claimed by the New York Daily News, has reportedly been handing out cards offering free personality tests at Scientology centers to cast and crew on his latest movie "Hancock."

"Will 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 free personality test at a local Scientology center," a source was quoted by the New York Daily News as saying.

"These tests are given free by the church anyway. The quiz is designed to convert people to the religion by identifying personality flaws that Scientology can fix for you," the source added.

There has yet official confirmation nor denial issued by Smith's camp concerning the report.

Insisted he didn't believe in "organized religion", Smith once revealed "I love my God, my higher power, but it is mine and mine alone. 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 per cent the same ideas of Scientology, 98 per cent the same ideas of Hinduism and Buddhism. When I sit and I talk with Tom, he is one of the greatest spirits that I've ever met - someone who is committed to making the world better. How can I condemn someone for what they believe and I believe that God was born from a pregnant virgin?"
