Science for Actors

Just recently I found out that Nancy Cartwright, the voice of the lovable Bart Simpson, was a Scientologist and had given over $10 million last year to the church. I knew about the big names such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta. I know that Will Smith, who I loved and adored as the Fresh Prince back in the day and have come to respect as an actor lately, has been courted by them lately. If he decides to become one, I will be heart broken.

I won't delve too deeply into the whole "Is Scientology really a religion?" debate. Based on my own research into it, I just know it's not right for me or anyone else . It's too close to a cult for me, however, if people are genuinely happy and are okay with the spending a lot of money to reach higher levels of OT clearness, then by all means, have fun.

Curiosity got the best of me so I looked up what other actors are into Scientology. I was shocked at a few of them. The funny thing is, a lot of these actors I can see me supporting their work even though I have an aversion to Scientology. So, will I see Will willingly? I guess only time will tell.
