In other Will Smith news, don’t expect this Fresh Prince to convert to Scientology any time soon. Despite Tom Cruises many attempts, Will smith just cannot convert, because, well he is afraid of his late grandmother.
He says, "I've talked to Tom about it - (there's) lots of incredible, wonderful concepts (but, my wife) Jada (Pinkett Smith) and I don't necessarily believe in organized religion.
"I was raised in a Baptist household and my grandmother would get up out of her casket (if I became a Scientologist)."
