Laura Prepon quits Scientology in favor of meditation.
La star de « Orange is the New Black », 41, told people that she has not practiced the controversial religion since becoming the mother of her two children, aged 4 years and 16 months.
“I no longer practice Scientology,” said Prepon. “I have always been very open-minded, even since I was a child. I was brought up a Catholic and a Jew. I prayed in churches, meditated in temples. I studied the theory of Chinese meridians. I have not practiced Scientology for almost five years and it is no longer part of my life.
She told the magazine that she was meditating with her husband, actor Ben Foster.
“We meditate every day and I really like it,” she said. “Because it’s something that helps me hear my own voice and it’s something we can do together. “
Prepon was one of the most famous celebrities associated with Scientology, and has even been spread dating the child star of religion, actor Tom Cruise, in 2014.
However, Prepon denied the allegations and defended the secret religion at the time.
“The thing is, there’s so much bogus data because people don’t know what Scientology is, so they’re just making things up,” Prepon told SheKnows.. “It’s a little unfortunate because then I have to say to myself, ‘No, that’s actually not what’s happening. “”
It is not known if Prepon still maintains this position. But here is hoping that Leah Remini is out there somewhere sipping a nice cup of chamomile tea and smiling at the news.
