Will Smith Gets Immortalized

Will Smith Gets Immortalized

International superstar Will Smith gets silly while getting his hand and footprints immortalized Monday at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Pal Tom Cruise was there to show support for Smith, acting just as nutty.

He told Entertainment Tonight, “I feel honored to know him and his family. When I get around him I feel inspired. We push each other and we need that. We share that same level of reality and commitment that we have to our craft and to our family. Its fun. Wherever Will Smith is, that’s where the party is!”

Added Tom about Will‘s music, “He is an extraordinary artist. When I was doing Born on the 4th of July, his music got me through that picture.”

Tom also addressed if Will could beat his wife Katie Holmes in a marathon. Tom laughed, “Kate is fast! I said to Will, ‘she ran a marathon, we’ve got to see if we can’t run a marathon. She did it!’ The day after she ran the marathon I was at the hotel and got in the elevator drenched in sweat and I smelled… I said, ‘Listen, when your wife runs a marathon, you’ve got to get on the treadmill the next day!’”

Also in attendance were Will‘s kids, who are also actors–son Jaden, 9, daughter Willow, 7. Noticeably missing was his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. Tie by Louis Vuitton.

  • erica

    I love Will, and I really admire him when it comes to his movie choices, that guy can do everything *lol* It’s great to see him get this kind of recognition. Go Will.

  • Anthony to the S.

    will’s a great person and actor.

  • Miapocca

    Will smith is also pushing the scientology agenda, he pretends he is not part of thier posse and pushed all the scientology crap on his wife..but frankly all these scientologists are a tight knit group and its only for few months now before big willy in under pressure to endose the cult publiclly especially if he gives them enough dirt in his auditing sessions, which they already have most of via jada pinketts e-meter sessions anyway..who is he kidding!!

    I know my money is never going to his moveis..indeirect flow to scientology is till money to sceintology…what a dissapointment.!!

  • Miapocca

    So what happened to Wils first son as well?? or is his mama running away from their cult practice..seems like in this important day ofhis life, Willard Smith III will be standing there with his other 2 siblings….scientology freaks!

  • maz

    scientology is a SECT people not a cult!!

  • sara

    Will’s music got him through making Born on the 4th of July? Which song? Parents Just Don’t understand? Lol.

  • Yikes

    Love Will, but the Tom Cruise ‘friendship’ is getting creepy as hell!

  • karina

    Oh sorry I do not like Tom ;p Will is one of my favourite actors :-) :)

  • lynn

    both of these gays (oops, guys)) are morons. first of all, tom is the biggest dumba– in the world if he thinks he can convince anyone that his beard RAN the marathon. It took her almost 6 hours…LMAO. She probably cheated. She probably left the race, did some shopping, then got a ride to several blocks within the finish line. Tom and Katie are so used to lying about everything, they wouldn’t know the truth if they saw it with their own eyes.

  • disgusting

    I used to like Will until I found out that he associates with Tom. Anyone in Hollywood that associates with Tom and his “wife” might as well say goodbye to a successful career….

  • Miapocca

    Thats the whole point..Cruise job is to recruit some of the top selling stars..he went near Usher and has been doggin WIll smith and the Beckhams..these are all pretty unlikely friendships since they didnt collaborate on any projects…he sought them out…in short you better educate youself on that CULT before you go shaking hands with the bi-t-c-h cruise..he has an agenda, and its not about making friends but using popular figures to recruit to his cult….

    So frankly how many time do you think usher or will gets on the phone with cruise..since he practically spends all his time with his CULT…its a CULT a money hungy grabbing decietful group of people..and jsut as cruise populatiry sank with his grand endorsement of the curl, WIll smith willtoo so he tries to play safe..but he aint getting my omney..I like will but if he is stupid enough to join that groiup..I will wholeheardtely endorse his downfall..

    DO you realise the Cult of scientology regards all Cruises appearances as media PR for them..infact itsliek see toms face you think scientology..sicko!! b-a-s-t-a-r-d

  • *libraesque*

    thats tc’s idea of hamming it up?

    leave the kidding around to those people in HW who are ACTUAL friends, and who ACTUALLY make people chuckle with their sense of humor and pranks on eachother…i.e. Clooney/Pitt/Damon/Cheadle

  • Yorick

    Will Smith isn’t a Scientologist no matter how much you want to believe he is.

    He’s simply not a bigoted moron who spends all his time fighting against the religion.

  • faith

    Run Will..

  • [~Famous~] – The God.

    clooney needs to come hang out with these two – he’d have real fun. then he wouldn’t have to do any joke-coaching to his humor impaired friend.

  • AnOldiebutagoodie

    I think he is well deserving of this.

  • jenn

    Tom was SO uneasy in that interview. He was having a hard time spewing the lies. The interviewee knew they were lies and was making tom uneasy!


    Thanks Jared for the pictures. I wish they didn’t perm willow’s hair and Jaden needs a hair cut. They’re 2 beautiful kids.

  • *libraesque*

    he may not be a $cientologist but he’s an IDIOT regardless…..his comment:
    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.


  • Cheerios

    Something about that relationship with TC is just odd.

  • Miapocca

    Bigot is a word much used by the kool aid drinker..remeber the article wher der spiegel spanked criuse bigtime..he used that word..tis thier reponse to anything when they cant think beyond the brainwashing nonsense….will smith needs to find REAL friend..I expected better of him

  • Nanea

    Tom “acting” nutty? No need to act, he simply is!
    And ever since WS compared $ciento to the Bible, he’s lost me, I’m not going to spend another cent on anything he does.

    Tom Cruise flipping out over Morton book
    11/01/2007 – Tom Cruise -

    11/01/2007 – Tom Cruise – “Lions For Lambs” AFI Fest Premiere – Arrivals – The ArcLight Theater – Hollywood, CA, USA © David Gabber / PR Photos

    Princess Diana biographer Andrew Morton will soon release a book that will reveal certain deep, dark secrets about Tom Cruise’s sex life and religious beliefs – and Tom is not happy about it.

    When high ranking Thetan Tom isn’t happy, baby Xenu cries.

    Allegedly the Scientology muscle steps up harassing people. Scientology employs more attorneys than any other “religion”.

    Morton has been so thoroughly intimidated, both by Scientologists and certain random nutty fans of Cruise’s, that he’s had to go into hiding like another persecuted writer, Salman Rushdie.

    Crabbie’s Hollywood blog wntes that Scientology operates pretty much the same way radical Islamic fundamentalism operates.

    Morton said of his security-related exile:

    ‘I have received threats from the Scientologists and things have become pretty heavy – to the extent that it’s almost more than my lawyers can handle. … I’ve sold my flat and I’m not telling anyone where I’m moving to. I intend to disappear for a while.”

    CRABBIES notes that there “must be some awfully juicy stuff in that biography for Tom to get this mad. Proof that he’s a homosexual maybe, and that Scientology is really just some insane cult whose purpose is to subjugate women and establish a new male-dominated order. You know, stuff we already know, but now someone’s put it in a book and there are all sorts of citations so that makes it legit.”

    Tom, according to Crabbie, has unleashed his goons during intense negotiations with Paramount a couple years ago, Cruise dispatched his “people” to a parking lot to confront studio head Brad Grey and pressure him into giving Tom a better deal pre-Sumner Redstone sayonara time.

    Crabbie also notes the “mysterious” death of David Hans Schmidt, a publicist Tom was mad at for stealing his wedding photos and trying to sell them. Schmidt’s demise was ruled a suicide.

  • sickening

    Tom is only using Will’s media event to get himself some media attention..Tom will use anybody and everybody he can to get attetnion…He does not care about Will and his family…I agree with number #16, he only wants WIll in his CULT SO THEY CAN GET WILL’S MONEY…Since Tom’s career is going down he will be more than happy to bring’s Will’s career down with his..

  • Miapocca


    See Cruise get a derserved whipping form the German press:,1518,353577,00.html

    Matt Lauer should have asked deeper questions but I guess he was jsut too shocked by whitnessing the lunacy of the midget

    Part two of this report is a candid look at celebrities in the Church of Scientology: how they are recruited, how they are used, and how they are controlled. It explores how the secret society of Scientology is trying to take over and control large numbers of Hollywood celebrities to use Hollywood’s media influence as leverage to recruit new unsuspecting members from the public. (In appendix 2 you will find the largest list of Scientology celebrities that has ever been assembled.)

  • [~Famous~] – The God.

    uh ho! Nanea’s not going to spend another cent on will’s movies! LMAOOO sureeeee! not like ‘i am legend’ or anyone of his block busting box office smashes needs your little $10.

    A former Scientology celebrity speaks out

    Here are some excerpts from an article on Scientology and celebrities from Premiere Magazine (9/93.) In it is a courageous interview with Diana Canova.

    “I remember having a choking anger against anyone who ever said anything against Scientology,” says actress Diana Canova (Soap), a former member. “I would get crazy, I was just so angry. I would have done anything for them.”

    During her seven years in Scientology, Canova experienced the Celebrity Center from both sides of fame. “When I started, I wasn’t in television yet. I was a nobody–I’d done some TV, but I was not one of the elite, not by a long shot–until I did Soap. Then it became . . . I mean, you really are treated like royalty.”

    “There was always pressure to get other celebrities in. The first time I walked in those doors, they said, ‘Just give us all the money in your bank account. You’ll get it back tenfold.’” When she joined, auditing prices were about $25. “It went up to about $175 in the early ’80s,” she recalls. “That was shocking to me. I was beginning to wonder, Is it really worth it? They’re telling you, ‘Don’t spend $100 an hour on a shrink’s couch, it’ll ruin your mind.’ Auditing is so much better?”

    “It took me years before I decided to quit,” says Canova. “I guess finally I was so fed up with being afraid. You’ve heard all these horror stories . . .” Canova warns: “They’re capable of doing a lot of things.”

    Canova says she spoke up because she thought it was important. “I see some of my friends having to keep their mouths shut for personal reasons, for business reasons,” she says. “I don’t believe that’s right. If it’s going to be termed a religion, or a church, then those kinds of fears have no business being there. Nobody should be afraid. And you can quote me on that.”

    From other celebrities who are out

    Singer Lou Rawls, 42, still appears on church membership rolls, even though he has long been disaffected. “Lou is no longer involved in Scientology, it’s not an interest at this point and never will be again,” his agent says. “He doesn’t want to be associated with those people.”

    John Brodie, a former San Francisco 49′ers quarterback, was involved in Scientology from 1970 to 1982. He was one of the first 25 Scientologists to reach the level of OT 7, considered a formidable accomplishment by members. Still, Brodie says he never considered himself part of the group. Brodie said he gave up promoting Scientology after some of his friends in Scientology were expelled and harassed during a power struggle with church management. “There were many in the church I felt were treated unfairly,” Brodie said.

    There are many Hollywood people who have left Scientology but fear speaking out. Some of them leave and just order Scientology to stop using their names and “success” stories. Hopefully, because of this report and the full Scientology celebrity listing at the end of part two, more former Scientology celebrities will begin to tell their stories in the media.

    he poorer and famous Hollywood Scientologists
    John H. Richardson – Catch a Rising Star
    Premiere, September 1993

    Scientology’s membership boasts some of Hollywood’s top talent, despite one of the most sinister reputations of any modern religion.

    “The evidence portrays L. Ron Hubbard as … virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background, and achievements. The writings and documents in evidence … reflect his egoism, greed, avarice, lust for power, vindictiveness, and aggressiveness against persons perceived by him to be disloyal or hostile.”
    – Paul G. Breckenridge, Jr., Judge of the Superior Court of Los Angeles, June 20, 1984

    AFTER HIS WEDDING TO NICOLE KIDMAN, TOM CRUISE was the guest of honor at a dinner party given by the powerful Creative Artists Agency at the trendy DC3 Restaurant, overlooking the Santa Monica Airport. Cruise sat at a table with CAA kingpin Michael Ovitz, often called the most powerful man in Hollywood. Right next to them sat David Miscavige, often called the most powerful man in the Church of Scientology, the self-help religion that promises “auditing” will “clear” its followers of the fears and traumas blocking them from total success–at a typical cost of $300 to $400 an hour. Nearby were two full tables of Scientologists. According to one of the guests, the Scientologists around Cruise were “like they always are–very direct, very attentive, very protective–hovering over Tom. And shaking a lot of hands.”

    Across town, a former Scientologist named Nan Herst Bowers was agonizing over a letter she’d recently received from her 23-year-old son, Todd. “Dear Mom,” he wrote, “I am sending you this letter to let you know that I have to disconnect from you … I can’t see you, the babies, or Jim until this is all over and handled.”

    Cruise Control

    Tom Cruise refused an interview with PREMIERE. When we presented our fact-checking questions, we received this response.

    [To the editor:] I got Tom Cruise to answer the questions and I offer them to you on one condition.

    The condition is that you use the questions exactly as they were asked and use the answers exactly as they were given.

    We have agreed that if any changes are contemplated by PREMIERE we can then withdraw all of the material and nothing can be printed without our specific approval.

    With that in mind I send these sheets on to you and would appreciate hearing from you once you have an opportunity to look at them.

    Sincerely, Pat Kingsley [Tom Cruise's Publicist]

    1) At a birthday party at DC3 David Miscavige and Paula Wagner sat at Tom’s table. Is that true?

    I never had a birthday part at DC3. A post-wedding party was given me by CAA, specifically my agent Paula Wagner and Mike Ovitz. Several hundred people were in attendance. At dinner I did sit with David Miscavige, in addition to Paula, Mike and at least 10 other individuals. What’s the point?

    2) He joined the church via Mimi Rogers. Is that true?

    I became a Scientologist while married to Mimi Rogers. No, I didn’t join the Church via Mimi or anyone else. My involvement in Scientology at that time was my own as it currently is. The question indicates some built in misunderstanding or intentional misconception as one doesn’t “join the Church” as you must already know.

    3) Scientologists regularly visit Tom on the set of his movies. Is that true?

    No this isn’t true. I am occasionally visited on the set by industry people, business associates and people who are all my friends. Some are Scientologists and some aren’t. To ask me if I’m visited regularly is like asking a Catholic actor if he is visited regularly by Catholics. However, so as to have no misunderstanding, I assume the question is whether Scientologists who are Church staff or officials regularly visit me. The answer is no. As a matter of fact, during the shooting of my last three films, I was visited a total of one time during the shooting of one of these films by friends of mine who are also church staff. They saw me for about one hour over lunch.

    I have heard this allegation before, indicating I have “handlers” and find it repulsive. I wish I could see my friends more often, but they are as busy as I am.

    4) That Tom frequently spends weekends at a Scientology retreat at Gilman Hot Springs.

    This is false. Although I have been there, I haven’t EVER spent a “weekend” at the Scientology property (it isn’t a “retreat”) in Gilman Hot Springs. In the last 2 years or so, I only remember going to the Gilman Hot Springs location once, for a day and a half. And it was even in the middle of the week. My free time, what little I have, is spent with my family at home. And in any event, I have never spent time in any Scientology location for recreational purposes.

    5) That his staff have been invited to Scientology offices to take courses.

    I have never heard of this and don’t even know what it means.

    6) His near constant companion is DM.

    My near constant companion is my wife, Nic. Dave Miscavige is a good friend of mine and while we both wish we could see each other more often, due to my schedule and his we rarely ever see each other. This question is just off the wall. We are friends. And how is this relevant to anything? It’s offensive that I should even have to answer this question.

    7) Nan Herst Bowers was a Scientologist who was separated from her children by the church. She wrote a letter to Tom saying the church is protecting him from the fact that she “outed” Tom as a Scientologist and that the church broke up her relationship with her children. (Her letter to Tom was asking him to help her.)(*)

    I don’t know Ms. Bowers. I have never heard of her. Nor has anyone in my office. I have no idea what this is about except it is bizarre as nobody “outed” me as a Scientologist, and the implication that one would be “outed” as a Scientologist is insulting.

    Finally, I have no idea why my religion, or anybody’s, would be the subject of an article in PREMIERE and that is why I have refused to participate in any interview. These questions indicate my original feelings about this story were accurate. I have taken the time to answer your questions in such detail, so that there can be no question about their inaccuracies.

    I make movies. And when PREMIERE wants to talk about the movies I make, I have been and will continue to be willing to discuss such at length.

    But these questions indicate that a reporter is stuck on some preconceived notion as to what Scientology is or how it relates to people’s lives. I have gained a lot from Scientology. I know what it is and how it can help people from my own personal involvement and study of the subject. Not one of these questions has anything to do with that. The reporter’s angle is clear. The Church of Scientology doesn’t run my life or career. By being asked to answer these questions I’m perceived as having to defend my religion or Church and by having to deny accusations a false negative impression is created. This is not what freedom of religion is about. My friends in the church don’t regularly visit me on the set. But so what if they did? Years ago, a friend of mine sits at my table at a party and now it’s an issue with PREMIERE?

    I know the inference as I have seen it in other articles. The problem is it’s wrong. This line of questioning shows a lack of interest in learning what the Church of Scientology represents. I know more about Scientology and the Church and its staff than any reporter I’ve ever met or whose articles I have read. I know the good work they do. I shouldn’t be subjected to an inquiry on my religion. Likewise, my Church shouldn’t be subjected to press disparagement because I’m a member.

    My work speaks for itself. It’s on the screen for everyone to see. And as far as PREMIERE is concerned that should be the end of the matter.

    * Editor’s note: PREMIERE presented this as an allegation. This question contains factual inaccuracies that have been corrected in the text of the article.

  • Life is good

    OMG his daughter is now 7… Wow time has flown. Where was Jada anyhow ?

    cant you koolaid drinker write something original other than I adore, I love..what foolishness are you people rising from….

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH….#36 if you love him so much….you may want to learn how to spell his name


    he Mia, thanks for the interview paste, very interesting

  • Yorick

    Or MAYBE Cruise was just supporting a good friend, #29. Simple as that?

    What is with all these hidden ulterior motioves when the surface explanations are so much more plausible and simple?

  • cult food

    The cult lovers on here are a bunch of illiterate zombies….just the kind that Scientologists like…..poor self-esteem, introverts, easily wonder you write such childish and stupid things like ‘i adore them’, ‘i love him’ and all your elementary talk. You all sound like a bunch of fifth grade brainwashed teenyboppers.

  • Miapocca

    Yorick keep reasoning yourself into oblivion..there is a lot of literature online as well as the Scientology site, you might want to engage in reading some of them then you will realise Scientology doesn’t believe in FREE or just FRIENDS
    Since Cruise lives and breathes the doctrines of the cult laid down by the most criminal sociopath on earth to date, his actions and motives are quite easy to fortell….
