60 Famous People You Didn’t Know Were Scientologists

1. Jenna Elfman

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.

2. Leah Remini

Remini is also known as the woman who was way too hot to be with Kevin James on The King of Queens. Leah Remini reportedly sends her fans Scientology pamphlets in response to fan mail. She also gives the worst party favors ever.

3. Greta Van Susteren

Susteren is a “personality” on Fox News who I’m told is a totally different person than Ann Coulter.

4. Elizabeth Moss

Moss plays Peggy on Mad Men and allegedly ruined Fred Armisen’s life with Scientology, which will eventually make for a great skit on Portlandia.

5.This list of celebrity Scientologists previously included Linda Blair based on information from other sources. Ms. Blair has notified us that she is not, nor has she ever been, a Scientologist. Apologies for the error.

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla

  • artfule

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

    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.

    • Sarah

      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.

  • meredith

    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.

    LOL FAILZZZIZZZ

    but that last picture was freaky as muck!

    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.

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

      30+30=60
