However, even though she cut the ties with them, there are still many famous people who are faithful followers of Scientology. The church is a huge presence in Hollywood and, according to some reports, the church owns seven historic Hollywood properties worth about $300 million, which are just part of their Los Angeles real estate empire of 26 properties. Check out some celebs who practice Scientology.

John Travolta








According to the church’s own website, famed actor John Travolta became a Scientologist in 1975, while filming the movie “The Devil’s Rain” in Mexico. He said: “As a Scientologist, I have the technology to handle life’s problems and I have used this to help others in life as well. I would say that Scientology put me into the big time.”

All of my dreams keep becoming realities and that’s very exciting,” she says.

Tom Cruise is one of the most famous Scientologists. Today, he is reported to be one of the top level members of the Church of Scientology, but he was first introduced to the religion by his first wife, Mimi Rogers, in 1990. The actor has become the most recognizable face of the organization and he claims that the Scientology teaching helped him overcome dyslexia.

Danny Masterson








Actor and DJ Danny Masterson was raised as a Scientologist, and is quoted on the church’s website, saying: “I have to say that one of the most important things Scientology has given me is the ability to keep my integrity together. I understand how people can get into unethical situations, and Scientology has always helped me keep my head clear and be in present time. I have been able to see situations for what they are.”

Kirstie Alley








Actress Kirstie Alley was raised Methodist, but is now a practicing member of the Church of Scientology. She once said:  “To tell you the honest-to-God truth: without Scientology, I would be dead. So, I can personally highly recommend it.”

Jason Lee








Jason Lee has been a Scientologist since the early ‘90s. He’s appeared in several Kevin Smith films and asked that Smith remove a joke about Scientology from the religious satire ‘Dogma.’ According to his ex-wife, Jason is obsessed with the religion.

Laura Prepon








Actress Laura Prepon began dating her “That ’70s Show” co-star’s brother, Christopher Masterson and converted to Scientology. Asked about the church, she said: “Anyone who knows me is just like, “Wow, if Laura is a Scientologist, then there has to be something to this. When I hear something negative, I don’t get defensive. I know what’s true for me and what works for me. ”

Elisabeth Moss








She was born into the religion and still identifies as a Scientologist. “Mad Men” star is a Scientologist but has spoken out about she isn’t OK with the church’s rampant homophobia.

Jenna Elfman








Jenna was raised Catholic, but was introduced to Scientology by her now-husband Bodhi and joined the church after they married in 1995. “In other philosophies, my questions would get answered to some degree, but then I would have a follow-up question and there would be no answer. The logic would dead-end. In Scientology you can find answers for anything you could ever think to ask. These are not pushed off on you as, ‘This is the answer, you have to believe in it.’ In Scientology you discover for yourself what is true for you,” she said.
