Jenna Elfman believes Scientology helped her 23-year marriage
Jenna Elfman, 46, the Fear The Walking Dead star, has been married for 23 years! This is something that doesn’t happen so often in Hollywood. The celebrity truly believes that her controversial religion helped her build a happy and successful relationship. "Well, I’ve been a Scientologist for 28 years, and that’s a huge part of what helps us keep our communication going and our relationship. We’ve never cheated on each other, we’ve never broken up. We hang in there," the actress explained.
Jenna and her husband Bodhi Elfman (49) got married in 1995 and welcomed two sons, Story, 11, and Easton, 8.
"Raising children, maintaining my sanity in a crazy world. Our world is crazy, it’s getting crazier, and Hollywood is the ne plus ultra of crazy," she said.
Jenna defends Scientology "I think that anything that works tends to get attacked."
"It’s been so workable for me. I use it every single day of my life and it keeps me energized and vivacious and happy. I like literally have so much going on. Why am I going to go: 'You know, let me put some negativity in my life. Let me go see who’s being a bigot.' Why would I search for bigotry in this world when it’s the one thing that’s been this huge help in my life to keep me sane and to raise great kids?"
Scientology - negetive feedback
The religion has been affected by a lot of negative feedback over many years.
Leah Remini and Paul Haggis, former members of this religion, spoke about difficult time inside the church.
The religion was also shown in honest documentary film exposé Going Clear.
"I think people should just check it out for themselves and not believe everything they hear or read on the internet," Jenna summarized.
Other famous Scientologists include Elisabeth Moss, Danny Masterson, and Kirstie Alley.
The other day I tweeted that all Trekkies are good people.— Briahna Joy Gray (@briebriejoy) 3 lipca 2018
Apparently, it is necessary for me to qualify that all actors who have performed in the franchise are not, in fact, Trekkies.
I make no claims about Kirstie Alley, for instance. pic.twitter.com/3E6I1XImUU
Stars who also changed their religion
Katie Holmes - her case just shows that love makes people do anything. Katie Holmes, who was a Catholic started believing and following Scientology once she got married Tom Cruise in 2006. Six years later, the couple split and Holmes filed for divorce.
The reason for the break up was because Holmes found the Church of Scientology intimidating and that her then husband would kidnap their daughter, Suri.
Drew Barrymore married Will Kopelman in 2012 and converted to Judaism. She said it's a beautiful religion and would like to raise her kids in it. The couple got divorced in 2016 so we are unsure if she still follows the faith.
She had been married twice before and this is the first time she changed her religion, especially for love.
The singer reportedly converted to Islam after marrying Wissam Al Mana. The music star is very private about her 2012 marriage — not even going public with it until 2013.
Several media outlets, including MSN, have reported Jackson’s conversion to her husband’s faith. It would be a possible explanation for her recent change to conservative clothing.
Scientology - how it was formed
The infamous Church of Scientology was formed in 1953 by the writer L. Ron Hubbard. It could be said that one of the richest cults, with high-profile members like Tom Cruise, has certainly been controversial since its inception.
This religious sect is based on the idea of cleaning the human psyche of emotions and "negative" memories and highlighting its potential with intense therapy sessions that are often based on the use of lie detectors.
He claims that it is based on scientific research and facts, but Scientology is known for its official litigation and murky ways of locking up its critics and apostates alike, often murdering them, according to rumors. Tom Cruise’s stories, however, did not go well with Scientology.
