Tom Cruise has never been shy about sharing his beliefs. He has proclaimed Scientology, loud, and long for years. The Church of Scientology began when author Ron L. Hubbard established it in 1954. Hubbard who took up ritual magic and occult dealings in 1948 also falsely claimed to have a long Naval career.

In 1950 he published “Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.” The book included ideas from Buddhism, Freudian theories, hypnotic techniques, and other philosophes. Dianetics uses a person called an auditor who helps the “patient” go through painful events in reverse chronological order. The belief is that the memories and bad energy from the events will be erased or removed from the person.

Hubbard’s book quickly became popular with the public leading him to release the new idea of “Scientology”. After the religion took hold in America, Hubbard moved to London and started to spread his beliefs worldwide. Scientology has been popular among Hollywood for decades and still continues to grow in famous circles.

Famous Scientologist:

Elisabeth Moss- This 31 year-old “Mad Men” star once told Rolling Stone that, “Scientology gives me stability and makes me feel like a better version of myself.”

Laura Prepon- Made famous in “That 70s Show” and “Orange is the New Black”, told Women’s Health, “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.” Prepon is rumored to currently be dating Tom Cruise.

Danny Masterson- Also of “That 70s Show” fame is a well-known Scientologist, as is his brother Christopher. Christopher dated Laura Prepon and introduced her to Scientology.

Kirstie Alley- According to Style Caster, this famous actress said, “to tell you the honest-to-God truth: without Scientology, I would be dead. So, I can personally highly recommend it."

Jason Lee- Famous for “My Name is Earl” is a Scientologist. His ex-wife claims that members of the church harassed her after their divorce.

Nicole Kidman- A former member of Scientology left the church in 2001. It was the same time she split with, then husband Tom Cruise. Cruise and Kidman’s children are still members of the church.
