Will These Celeb Scientologists Stick With It?

Published May 28, 2014 by gossipzoo

Will These Celebs Leave Scientology?

As Leah Remini makes a not-so-quiet exit from the Church of Scientology, there are still more loyal celeb followers where she came from.

But plenty more, we’re not so sure.

Remini, who reportedly asked one too many questions about the whereabouts of church leader David Miscavage‘s long-absent wife (a big no-no), said adios to the religion after more than 30 years just two weeks ago: “I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct,” she told PEOPLE last weekend. “That for me, that’s what I’m about. It wouldn’t matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to.”

It looks like in recent years more and more famous parishioners are defecting publicly from the religion that’s notorious for its privacy (some would say mystery).

Prior to Remini, perhaps its most famous recent non-believer is Katie Holmes (like Nicole Kidman) who joined the church when she wed Tom Cruise, who is hands down the religion’s biggest star. And she shocked the world with a surprise divorce and many reports citing Scientology as the reason for the marriage meltdown.

Then, of course, there’s director Paul Haggis, who left the church in 2009 after 35 years of service, but not before releasing a letter criticizing its anti-gay policies.

Chicago Fire actor Jason Beghe was a devout member for 13 years, but in 2007 released a video calling Scientology “destructive and a rip-off.”

A typically very private Lisa Marie Presley opened up about her decision to break it off with the church: “I got bad advice. I was insulated with no grip on reality. They were taking my soul, my money, my everything,” she told USA Today.

Now will these remaining celeb Scientologists fight or flee? Some you’ll recognize and others may leave you scratching your head “really?!”

Rashida Jones Apologizes For Saying John Travolta Should ‘Come Out’

Published August 15, 2012 by gossipzoo

That was quick!

Rashida Johnson is apologizing for that comment she made about John Travolta‘s sexuality throughout a current interview marketing her latest movie, Celeste and Jesse Forever.

While speaking about Frank Sea coming out from the closet, she expressed hopes that the large superstar would too. Using Travolta for example, she blurted out:

“A movie star. Like John Travolta? Come out! Seriously. The number of masseurs need to come forward? Let’s do that.Inch

She must have because of the subject some serious thought because she’s already lamenting her statement. The Parks and Entertainment star required to Twitter on Tuesday to apologize and tweeted:

Designed a thoughtless comment about John Travolta.I sincerely apologize.Nobody’s personal existence is my company.

&mdash Rashida Jones (@iamrashidajones) August 14, 2012

Very respectable!

Although there’s been an abundance of males walking toward support Rashida’s “thoughtless comment,” we believe she made the best move by apologizing.

If Travolta or other superstar really wants to come out from the closet, they’ll get it done when they’re good and prepared.

Or whenever a sex tape leaks. LOLz!
