When you think of Scientology, celebrities like Tom Cruise, Elisabeth Moss, and John Travolta come to mind. There is also Laura Prepon, best known as Alex Vause in “Orange Is The New Black” and Donna in “That 70’s Show.” Not anymore, however.
She has replaced Scientology with the art of meditation. Vause considers herself a spiritual person, except the Church of Scientology is no longer a part of her journey. Instead, she calls Scientology one of the many religions that intrigues her. Although she was raised Jewish and Catholic, Prepon does not allow one faith to define her.
Kim Kardashian wasn't exaggerating when she once mentioned how important religion is in her family's lives. Her mother, Kris Jenner, attends church religiously. That's not all. She also co-founded a church! Jenner and pastor Brad Johnson founded the California Community Church in 2009.
The parish motto? Everyone deserves love. Kris made it a point to raise her children as devout Christians. The family reportedly begins the day with a group chat, where Kris shares a Bible verse and gets everyone to discuss it.
The 10 Things I Hate About You star established a new-age spiritual group in 2014 called Full Circle. While intended to be a "new religion," Keegan described the group as "non-denominational."
Full Circle is a community center where people from all faiths and backgrounds realize their higher spiritual selves through the power of community and events. What kind of events? Meditation, art, yoga, and other activities with a "high spiritual vibe."
Orlando Bloom was raised in the Church of England but converted to Buddhism in 2004. An eye-opening trip to South Africa in the early 2000s revealed to Bloom how much stardom had wrecked his peace of mind.
He was tired of feeling anxious and fearful because of his fast-paced life. So Bloom turned to Buddhism to find more meaning and peace. He is now a full member of SGI-UK, the UK branch of Soka Gakkai International. SGI is a Buddhist organization based on the teachings of a 13th-century Japanese Buddhist priest.
Actor and rapper Ice Cube converted to Islam in the '90s. Ice Cube, who was born and raised in Los Angeles, is a self-described natural, mellow, and easy-going Muslim. He's not big on rituals and traditions.
He doesn't go to the mosque, either. Islam is personal for the rapper - a departure from his early days and his controversial endorsement of the Nation of Islam – widely considered a fundamentalist organization.
