Fox News'

Roger Friedman

has published what has become an annual survey of monies donated by

Will Smith

to various programs and causes sponsored by the Church of Scientology. Smith, whose bosom buddy,

Tom Cruise

, is an outspoken Scientologist, has always maintained he does not belong to the church. Citing tax returns, Friedman says that in '06, the Fresh Prince of West Philly-turned-megastar gave $20,000 (to Scientology's homeschooling system). The number jumped to $122,500 in '07, divided among three programs.

Fox News also says Smith's biggest charity contribution that year, $250,000, went to Yesha Ministries of Philadelphia, a Christian-based organization, and he gave $200,000 to an L.A.-area Christian ministry.

Brangelina handcraft their own gifts

What will

Brad Pitt

and

Angelina Jolie

give their six kids for Christmas? Something sweet, low-key and preferably handmade, says Brad.

"We do exchange gifts, although we don't feel any pressure to make them big or expensive gifts," Brad, 44, tells Hello! mag.

Brad says he tries to shield his family from hyperconsumerism. "The kids don't ask for the big gifts for the reason that they don't see a lot of the American cartoon television, which is packed with all those manipulative commercials," he said. He also has the kids make their own gifts: "The rule is that everyone's got to make something for someone else. . . . Then, when they give to each other, it's really sweet."

J.Lo's marriage on the rocks?

The post-

Hamlet

era's foremost melancholy Dane,

Søren Kierkegaard

, once quipped that boredom, not lust or greed, is the root of all evil.

So it seems to be for

Jennifer Lopez

, 39, and

Marc Anthony

, 40, whose four-year marriage has "hit the rocks." Us Weekly claims the two have become bored with marriage. "She wanted this domestic life, but now she's bored out of her mind," an anon source says. "She wants the old J.Lo back." The mag says Marc has been fresh with women at various nightclubs, but it's never gone beyond flirtation.

Where's the proof of this alleged strife?

Us Weekly says J.Lo signified her dissatisfaction at a Dec. 8 movie premiere by showing up without Marc, and without her wedding band or her 8-carat-diamond engagement ring. (In J.Lo-land, that is a seriously significant signifier.)

Marc's rep tells US Weekly the couple "are doing great. No further comments."
