THE biggest box office star in Hollywood, Will Smith, gave $122,000 (£82,000) to three charities linked to the Church of Scientology last year, according to newly released tax returns.

It is a record donation to the controversial organisation by a non-member. In 2006 he donated $22,000 to the church created by L Ron Hubbard, the science fiction writer.

As Smith promoted his latest film, a thriller called Seven Pounds, last week he said he was not a member of the church but agreed with some of its more "common-sense" principles.
