14 of Hollywood’s Most Famous Scientologists
Countless Hollywood stars are members of the religious movement „Scientology“. Being part of the community helped some them to become famous. Tom Cruise, the cult’s most famous supporter, said in an Interview: „Without Scientology, I would not be where I am.“ The basic idea of „Scientology“ is based on the belief that the immortal nature of every human being, the so-called thetan, has been hampered in its functioning through several traumatic experiences and especially two events a million years ago. By using controversial measures Scientologists try to approach to the true and original thetan from back then. Again and again their „faith“ causes civil commotion. Countless documentaries and books have been written about the movement. Many people that found their way out of the cult, such as Tom Cruise’s ex-wife Katie Holmes, have some negative things to say about it.
"Scientology" means a lot to "Misson Impossible" star Tom Cruise. He and David Miscavige, Chief Scientology Chief Executive Officer, have been friends for a long time.
