How you know her: Elfman played Greg’s wacky, new-age wife on Dharma and Greg. She’s like the Sweetheart of Scientology, which is a thing, I guess.

How do you tell your partner about a chronic skin condition?

Living with a chronic illness like Hidradenitis Suppurativa alone can be bad for your mental health. You owe it to yourself to find a significant other who wants to be there for you through good times and bad.

  • artfule

    Totally into psychedelic British folk….Just….Out there.

    Also. Thanks for the Brandy tumblr. I am going to eat fiddle faddle and laugh for hours. Good old 7th Heaven style fun.

    Dude, it totally Anthony Michael Hall’s butt cheeks; it was just someone who he knew. Either that or I’m remembering most of middle school inaccurately.

      Nah you’re right it was one of his nerdy friends.

  • Hannagh

    manson didnt actually kill anyone..

    • hrfe

      Incorrect. Manson didn’t actually kill the victims in the Tate/LaBianca murders, but he did murder other people before and after.

    All of these people are cray. And not because of their Scientology, it’s just those faces.

    Laura Prepon actually dated Chris Masterson, not Danny Masterson.

  • duncansomerside

    Haha loved this and love you. So good.

  • Sarah

    Some of these were really surprising. Elizabeth Moss? Greta Van Susteren? Damn.

  • aimee

    Chris Reeve looked into the religion briefly in 1975. Calling him a Scientologist because of that brief flirtation is like calling atheist, unbaptized me Catholic because I can recite a Hail Mary. Flimsy, at best.

    Hi Nico! As a fellow Thought Catalog contributor/writer, I really enjoy your writing. In the case of Leonard Cohen, I wasn’t able to find anything about Leonard Cohen’s foray into Scientology. What were your sources? As a Cohen fan, I’d love to check them out.

    Also, very entertaining list. Let’s get in touch.

    Maybe the worst written/researched article I’ve read since the last time I visited Gizmodo.

    I think Jason Dohring makes me the saddest of them all. Also Logan didn’t break Veronica’s heart over and over again she broke his time and again.

  • That's not gay, bro!

    I feel that I must award a bonus internet point for choosing to use a pic of Will Smith with his mouth open. Not something I would normally notice, but the last sentence of his paragraph made it impossible not to.

    Well done!

  • Nebula Lawrence

    This would be very interesting if you actually researched each person’s involvement with Scientology and not just listed what we might know them for…

  • Guest

    The whole time reading this, I was waiting for John Travolta and Tom Cruise to come up!

    • TM

      But we KNOW they’re Scientologists. This article is for the ones we DON’T know.

  • Toto120

    Can someone explain how a “60 people” list ends with number 30?

    • Sam

      30+30=60
