List of celebrities who follow Scientology
Scientology followers believe that humans are immortal, spiritual being which lives in a physical body. In the 1950s, the founder of the Church of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard created a program called Project Celebrity. This program rewards Scientologists who bring more celebrities to the church. There are also celebrity centers that cater to conversions of famous artists, actors, and other famous people. Although Tom Cruise is the most famous Scientologist, there are countless Hollywood celebrities following this religion. Others include John Travolta, Danny Masterson, Leah Remini, Laura Prepon, Elizabeth Moss, Juliette Lewis, and Michael Pena.
Recently, Laura Prepon revealed that she is no longer a member of Church of Scientology.
Until a few years ago, Laura Prepon was constantly defending Scientology. Moreover, in an interview, Prepon credited her faith for her success on Orange is The New Black. According to her, auditing is the reason why she was able to access Alex Vause’s vulnerable access. However, in a recent interview, Laura Prepon revealed that she no longer follows the religion. According to her, it is no longer a part of her life. Additionally, Laura Prepon said:
The church’s controversial auditing process had stripped away all of this charge, false ideas, decisions and mis-emotions that were affecting me. At the same time, I realized that acting does not define me.
Furthermore, Laura Prepon confessed that her kids played a huge role in her deciding to leave the church and said:
In my life, things have become much easier. I’m not affected like I used to be. As a brand new mother, I was reflecting so much on my own upbringing. I was reflecting on the way I was mothered. Similarly, I was forced to look at a lot of things in my life that I wasn’t looking at before. If motherhood has taught me anything so far, it’s that something can work out for a period of time. And then you move on and evolve from that.
Laura Prepon and Ben Foster are married and have two kids together. At the moment, they are practicing meditation and are more interested in spirituality.
