Will Smith has said that despite a Baptist upbringing and being close friends with ardent Scientologist Tom Cruise, he has no interest in organised religion.

Speaking at an I Am Legend press event last week, Will explained he prefers to model his own faith system: “I don’t necessarily believe in organised religion.”

“I don’t believe that the Muslims have all the answers and all the beliefs. I don’t believe the Christians have all the answers and beliefs, or that the Jews have all the answers.”

“I love my God, my higher power, but it is mine and mine alone, and I create my connection, and I decide how my connection is going to be. I believe that my connection to my higher power is separate from everybody’s.”
