Scientology: 15 Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Followers

Scientology.Org defines itself as “a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being.” They believe people are really spiritual beings, not limited to only their bodies or just to one single life, who have unlimited capabilities.

Scientology is better known to many as the new religion Tom Cruise, John Travolta and many other Hollywood stars fully embrace. We all remember all the gossip surrounding Cruise and his former wife Katie Holmes, and the mystery around their daughter’s involvement with Scientology. However, Scientology is more common of a religion than many people realize, with famous people across the United States following their “Supreme Being.” Here is a list of 15 celebrities who you may not have known were falling into the ranks with Travolta and Cruise in the pursuit of “true spiritual enlightenment." Some may seem pretty obvious, or like no brainers, but some may surprise you. From musicians to actors and actresses, it seems Scientology has a larger presence than once thought.

15 Kelly Preston

14 Alanna Masterson

13 Catherine Bell

12 Nancy Cartwright

11 Kirstie Alley

10 Jenna Elfman

9 Jason Lee

8 Elisabeth Moss

7 Ethan Suplee

6 Juliette Lewis

5 Beck

4 Doug E. Fresh

3 Michael Peña

2 Laura Prepon

1 Danny Masterson

Laura Prepon’s That ‘70s Show co-star Danny Masterson, comes in at number one on our celebrity list. Famous for his laid back and chill personality as Hyde, Masterson seems to carry that over into real life. I guess it is not super surprising he is a Scientologist, as his family appeared earlier in this list. Masterson has been open about his religion and the prejudice his religion faces, versus the protection other religions seem to get. Masterson claims it is a logical idealism with nothing much too it besides the pursuit of knowledge and cleansing oneself of bad past memories.
