Juliette Lewis on Scientology

| Filed under: Tom CruiseJuliette Lewis

She's wacky, but she doesn't seem as crazy as some of the other Xenu followers!

Actor/musician Juliette Lewis is speaking out about her religion, Scientology, in a new interview with the UK's Guardian.

She says:

"Oh, I thought you were going to go into Scientology and Tom Cruise. Which I don't mind. I want you to know that he is not the representation of all things Scientology - I feel so bad for him, because that's the responsibility that's put on him." Lewis says that she has never read a true word in the media about Scientology and that "it's just really practical, applied religious philosophy. And you'll get lost in the media with these fantastic, fantastical - is that a word? - stories of, like, aliens and, you know, gay cover-ups … the rumours, they're astonishing. And they would be funny, if they weren't so hurtful."

What's the truth then?

We don't understand why they are so secretive about some of their teachings!

    she crazy



  5. 5

    love her x



  6. 6

    The truth, as we've all seen is that scientology is plain strange. As are those that follow. And thats the truth!

    pppssssstttthhhhhh



  7. 7

    It's a scam/money suck disguised as a religion. That's why they are so secretive. If they really had the answers and cared about humanity, I don't think they would be selling it only to the rich and elite.



  8. 8

    She is a scientologist…she has to say those things! FUCK XENU!!



  9. 9

    Yeah it is odd… like the Mormons here in Utah. If they want everyone to know the truth then they should just speak out about it! But that is the problem… it's not so they can't.

    no comment.

    IT'S A CULT PEOPLE, DON'T BELIEVE HER HYPE!!!!!! BEWARE OF ALL SCIENTOLOCRAZIES!!!!!!!



  12. 12

    She is such a fuck-up. Who even knew she was still around?
    xoxo, Isa



  13. 13

    I really like her, so I pretend she is not a scientologist.



  14. 14

    Ever heard of freedom of religion? What's the hardons for SciTols? I'm a Doucheologist and we worship red rubber bags.
    Kaltu,
    L. Ron Douche

    They're being secretive about their teachings because it's a bullshit belief system they have and don't want people to know it!

    Stupid

    I read 2 scientology books at some point, and there's a lot of useful stuff there (best taken on a metaphorical level imo). No need to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    Seems like Juliet here is talking about the baby in this case, whereas the media focuses on the bathwater.
    .
    Media portrays scientology as controlling and requiring lotsa $$$, which is standard with religion. The message is not the dogma.
    .
    I'm paying $$$ to learn about NLP, which shares *vague* similarities on some levels with scientology, but no one is guilting me into it, I like what I'm learning and I'm paying for what is an understood service.
    .
    The "church" of scientology is a business, and they go about it as a religion, that's what I don't like, but there is some valuable stuff there. Again, best taken metaphorically.
    .
    But to each his own, as I'm not always on the same page as mainstream: I actually thought Tom Cruise was awesome for jumping on the couch with enthusiasm about his love for Kate, and became a fan then - I didn't care before!



  18. 18

    THEY WANT TO RULE THE WORLD!!! THE RECRUIT HOLLYWOOD ACTORS SO THEY CAN BRAINWASH YOUR MIND THROUGH VARIOUS MEDIUMS, TV, MOVIES!!!!! THE MEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE!!!!



  19. 19

    Scientology aside — WTF is she doing in those photos? Seriously — give me some of whatever she's on, LOL!



  20. 20

    Re: CHA – wow indeed.



  21. 21

    So, is she refuting what L. Ron Hubbard believed in? Who the fuck is she trying to kid?



  22. 22

    They might be secretive, but at least they're not pitted against another religion, like Catholics vs. Protestants. Who cares? The Mormons are secretive. Maybe they just wan to worship in peace. Now, fucktards like Tom Cruise misrepresent, but every religion has PLENTY of those. Just look at Islam. There are people blowing themselves up in order to misrepresent.



  23. 23

    Cult.



  24. 24

    WTF, juliette, it IS about Xenu and thetans and all kinds of crazy shit. why are you trying to say it's not?
    either she's in denial or she's not caring about what her 'religion' is based on… OT-8 will explain everything once you get there i guess…..

    GO ANONYMOUS!

    she's an awesome actress and a high-energy singer, but to send her out on the $cientology front lines, well… she can't wipe out the image of the cruise-travolta-smith 3-way.



  26. 26

    Its because they believe if you pay enough money to the church you will be granted immediate access to heaven. Oh no wait, that was the Catholics



  27. 27

    will smith is a scientologist but won't publicly amdit it for fear of commiting career suicide a la tom cruise.

    Go XENU!



  28. 28

    Re: poopstain – OH NO, THEY GOT TO YOU! GO BATH IN OREGANO OIL, CLOVES AND SAFFRON! YOU WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL BY TOMMORROW!



  29. 29

    ALL religion is nonesense- however, scientology and mormonism are exceptionally ridiculous.

    GO ANONYMOUS!



  30. 30

    Tee Hee! Good deflection, chicka!



  31. 31

    They are SECRETIVE about their teachings so that they can charge people a "set-donation" (aka money out the ass, thousands of dollars) for new classes to learn about the religion (something that other religions do for free or "non-set-price" donations.



  32. 32

    Because they want your moneyyyyyy, you can't be a member unless you give like $10,000 to the Church of Scientology, der its pretty obvious why they are so secretive then!



  33. 33

    They're secretive for one reason: because you gotta pay to play.

    If you want to know more, beyond what research you can do online, and what you can read in Dianetics, you gotta pay.

    Those are just tools/mechanisms to intrigue (read: hook) you to learn more. But, how do you learn more? You "convert" and begin "donating" to the "church;" and, that's how you climb the "ladder of faith and scientologic reasoning."



  34. 34

    Re: naughty boss – Well she hates you and pretends that you are dead.
    Just keepin' real for you hon,
    Yo Mama Douche



  35. 35

    Just talk to people who made it out. Not easy! They get you relaxed and you confess your sins and they hold that over you forever! After you reach the $300,000.00 plus point they take you in a boat off Florida and tell you the real secret! Xenu!
    Religion is not supposed to mandate payment. If you can't pay, they put you in the suit and send you to work for one of them. Fucked up stuff!



  36. 36

    Re: PerezDouche – So good you call yourself Douche. Saves me the trouble! Tongue sticking out!



  37. 37

    Holy Crap! HOW STUPID did US celebrities get nowadays?????? Don t they have ACCESS to the web?!



  38. 38

    God, I love her.
    But, quite frankly it isn't the "church's" gay alien conspiracies or any of the other distractory rumors.
    It's the associations dangerous ties and views on medicine, mind control, money laundering, cult activities, blackmail, murder and extortion amonst many many other things that leave people with a terrible taste in their mouths.
    We can't blame her though, she was born into it.
    France, Germany, Greece ….etc., can't be wrong… they want them out.
    Scientologists are horribly deluded, militant and fucking CRAZY.

    Re: Tara17

    "Valuable stuff"? You re BRAINWASHED to say that, scientology has driven people to suicide and is GUILTY of murder! They are SERIOUSLY THREATENING anyone who LEAVES their CULT (and please don t try to fool anyone WITH brain here that it should be any kind of "religion" whatsoever, it is NOT!) It s all been in the press! And I mean the RENOWNED serious(!) papers ….



  40. 40

    Scientology is NOT a "church" - it s a dangerous brainwashing CULT and(!) a criminal organizsation! That s why they have been monitored by the Secret Services in several European countries, among them Germany, for YEARS now and Scientology organization has LOST every(!) court trial they ever were submitted to in Germany! Ursula Caberta is sonstantly threatened and tried to be killed by them! She is the "expert on cults" in Germany and head of a Government institution in Hamburg/Germany fighting this cult and helping people who want to leave the cult by giving them pschological support, sometimes even "new identities" to protect them from being KILLED by Scientology who harrass and molest them after they leave the cult! They also have a Hamburg website with a little bit of English content as well…



  41. 41

    She is either in denial or is restricted in knowing the truth. Scientologists leaders have raped, forced abortions, use child labor, blackmailed, and murdered.



  42. 42

    Re: Bavaria – Awesome, I totally agree with you, it's just not the best place to go into details here.
    *
    I did not and would not touch the scientology organisation with a ten foot pole.
    *
    I'm saying I personally found some interesting stuff in the 2 books I read, as I also read about many religions and took from that what I felt true to me. It's like being inspired by what's left of Jesus's words versus adhering to one of the various current Christian cults.
    *
    Dogma is a good word to know; believing in Dogma is not the same as faith. It's sad that anyone could be driven to suicide for dogmatic reasons, when all they probably want is a little faith.



  43. 43

    eh scientology is good for her, she's weird! lover her style though, very "i dont' give a shit what you think"



  44. 44

    Re: PerezDouche – OK……. thank you?



  45. 45

    I call bullshit! Scientology has nothing to do with alient? BULL SHIT. Yes it does.



  46. 46

    Oh and L Ron Hubbard basically created this "religion" on a lark. He bet he could get people to follow his made up, science fiction BULL SHIT. And yep, he sure enough did. Dumb asses.



  47. 47

    What kind of "faith" asks you to abandon even your children if they don't join the religion? Calling them "subversive persons." BULL SHIT BULL SHIT BULL SHIT. I rarely can muster more than total respect for any true faith. But anybody who calls this "religion" their own…is effed in the head.

    LOOK UP torymagoo44 OR xenutv ON YOUTUBE!!! THERE ARE TONS OF ASTONISHING VIDEOS ABOUT SCIENTOLOGY…THEY ARE AAAAALLLLLL TRUE!
    OR GO TO www.exscientologykids.com JULIETTE IS A LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE!!!
    THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TALK ABOUT THE ALIENS, AND IF SHE HASN'T YET PAID HER $360 GRAND THEN SHE HASN'T YET BEEN TOLD ABOUT THE ALIENS.



  50. 50

    faith has bright and dark sides. this cult is just too much into money and power = big dark side…and I'm sorry Juliette but until scientology stops being an "only rich, famous and enlightened club" so we don't tell what we do here … you are closer to ET lovers than to peace makers

    Re: ss794- – YOU KNOW AND SEEM TO BE AGAINST SCIENTOLOGY AND IT'S B.S. BUT YOU SUPPORT EQUALLY EVIL MCCAIN AND PALIN?!?! WTF?!?!



  52. 52

    I didn't know she was a lame scientologist. how disappointing, I liked her. now she seems silly.



  53. 53

    I love her but all religions are for drones! Religion is the opiate of the masses!!! they are addicted to there drug (religion) and there is no rehab for that drug



  54. 54

    i LOVE Juliette but that is just bullshit. Scientology isn't considered a dangerous cult in many European countries for no reason.



  55. 55

    Re: Tara17 – Such a long post and still no useful info on the religion.. which imo is BS…. they have to be so secretive about it because if everyone knew the truth we would all call them on their BSness…..



  56. 56

    Re: Dixie77 – Actually The Amish abandon their children if they leave their religion and lifestyle. The Amish are allowed a year to leave the colony to see the world if they so choose. If they return they are welcomed back but if they choose to live in the world the rest of us live, with you know electricity…. then they are no longer welcome in the community AND thier parents aren't allowed to talk to them, not even if they are in the same room.



  57. 57

    Re: Justajerseygal – So sorry, I no absolutely nothing about the scientology religion.



  58. 58

    ********************Last year I saw these people in masks demonstrating infront of one of their buldings and when i asked, they explained that they are the "anonyous" who need to wear a mask because the group has a section 113 (or whatever) to destroy their lives if they find out their identities. They said that the big theory is in some galactic battle long ago, one planet's people were defeated and banished to earth their spirits frozen in the glaciers. The ice thawed and their spirits now evil and bitter stick to us people and the group will help us to get clear by shedding these bad spirits. LOL that is what I was told - I don't care either way as long as no one tried to convert me ! *************************************

    if they weren't secretive, then why would all the crazies shell out the dough so readily?

    I really don't care what people believe as long as they keep me out of it. But let's not call scientology a religion. It is a cult.



  61. 61

    she is so wacked out.



  62. 62

    They keep it secret because it adds mystery. The intrigue piques people's interest. It helps them get people interested and then hooked. Most people want to have knowledge that others do not.

    I took two religious studies classes in the past two years and I did a field study project about Scientology and let me tell you all, South Park was right on! But that's the stuff they don't want you to know! I respect a lot of religions because I have learned so much about so many different religions, but Scientology is confusing and based one a bet by two science fiction novelists… L. Ron Hubbard won the bet. There are something like 15 levels in this religion and a very, Very, VERY small amount of people have reached anything past the 8th level. I interviewed members at a Scientologist center and toured the center (which was in business building). I'm not talking out of my ass, I learned about this stuff and studied this stuff.
