7 Celebrities Who Like Scientology A Little Too Much

7 Celebrities Who Like Scientology A Little Too Much
When former King of Queens star Leah Remini went on the Ellen Degeneres Show last week, she used it as an opportunity to clearly state that she believes she is better off since leaving the "religion" of Scientology last summer.

The now Xenu-free Remini stated that she and her family have found "new ways to reconnect" and that leaving the religion "has really brought us closer together."

While we're happy for Remini, but we can't help but hope that some other famous celebrities would follow her example.

Here are 7 Famous Stars Who Are A Little Too Into Scientology.

18 Terrible Celebrity Baby Names

18 Terrible Celebrity Baby Names
Rapper Lil' Kim just welcomed her first child, and of course she had to be creative with her daughter's name. The singer stunned fans with her pregnancy back in February and now she has stunned us again with the moniker Royal Reign.

We wouldn't expect any less from one of the most powerful women in hip hop. She's bold and larger than life. Even though her daughter wasn't royal bred doesn't mean she can't be Royal, right? Just ask Lorde.

Now, before you get all Judgey McJudgerson and claim this to be the worst celebrity baby name of all time, take a look at 16 famous offspring who are wal...

From Apple To Zowie: The Craziest Celebrity Baby Names

October 21st, 2012 3:14pm EDT
Ashlee Simpson
Uma Thurman and her French financier boyfriend Arpad Busson revealed the name of their newborn baby girl this week, and the tot's title is a mouthful.

Not content with the typical first/middle/last -- or in this case hyphenated last -- name, the little girl surely has a challenging future ahead of her when it comes to filling out any types of forms.

The couple named their three-month-old Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. Where they got her nickname, "Luna," from is a mystery; but their rep says each name has a special reason and meaning.

But Uma and Arpad -- who ...

Jason Lee's Ex-Wife Blames Church Of Scientology For Wrecking Her Marriage

July 17th, 2012 8:11am EDT
Jason Lee
Jason Lee's ex-wife has accused Church of Scientology officials of destroying her marriage to the My Name Is Earl actor - because she refused to give them intimate details about her sex life.

The Church hit the headlines recently after high-profile member Tom Cruise's wife Katie Holmes filed for divorce last month, amid reports Scientology was partly to blame for her decision.

Last week, former counselor Marty Rathbun, who claimed to have worked with Cruise during his divorce from Nicole Kidman, revealed secrets about how the children of members are "indoctrinated" to turn them against ...

10 Celebrities You May Not Know Are Scientologists

July 8th, 2012 1:00pm EDT
Sofia Milos
It's widely known that Tom Cruise, John Travolta, his wife Kelly Preston and Kirstie Alley are scientologists. Cruise is going through a very public divorce with actress Katie Holmes, and it is allegedly due to his ties with the religion.

Twelve years ago, Travolta made the film "Battlefield Earth," a film adapted from the novel by Ron L. Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.

In 2010 on Larry King Live, Alley said her religion helped her with weight loss, considering she'd only been fat three or four years of her life. "God knows where I'd be if I hadn't changed the things I have changed,"...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'The Proposals'

April 13th, 2012 3:27pm EDT
Up All Night
When I first saw in the previews for the "Up All Night" season finale that Kevin returns to propose to Ava, which prompts Chris to RE-propose to Reagan, I let out an audible groan. However, by the end of "The Proposals," I may have let out an audible sniffle or two. And there may have been something in my eye, causing it to leak fluid. Let's get this straight: I WAS NOT CRYING. But I will admit that, for a somewhat flawed episode, it managed to end on a truly sweet note that acted as an antidote to my elevated levels of cynicism.

When Chris and Reagan recount their engagement story to ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'New Boss'

March 2nd, 2012 1:04pm EST
Up All Night
After a string of really well-written episodes (including last week’s “First Birthday,” which must have been so good that I forgot to recap it), “Up All Night” hit a snag with last night’s “New Boss.” While there were some funny moments – mostly thanks to Will Arnett’s awkward attempts at machismo – the story was all over the place and never managed to really go anywhere.

The first red flag signaling that this is a poorly scripted episode is the announcement that Kevin (Jason Lee) moved to Idaho for a new job – an important tidbit that was revealed so matter-of-factly that I started to w...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Travel Day'

February 17th, 2012 2:36pm EST
Up All Night
People, “Up All Night” has definitely found a groove. When it first joined NBC’s Thursday night lineup, I was a little cranky about it because it came at the expense of “Community.” And although I still miss “Community” something fierce, I’ve stopped expecting “Up All Night” to fill that show’s ridiculously big clown shoes, and just focus on its solid writing, cute-as-hell baby and charismatic cast. And then of course there’s Will Arnett. I’ve gone back and forth on this issue, but I think I’ve finally made a decision: he’s sexier than Joel McHale. There, I’ve said it. It’s official. Is h...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Day After Valentine's Day'

Up All Night
I’m starting to notice something about “Up All Night.” None of the plots are terribly clever, yet it manages to be inoffensive at worst and laugh-out-loud funny at best. How does that work? Is it great writing, or is it the actors who bring that writing to life? After seeing last night’s episode, I’m still not completely sure. Even though the writers came up with one of this series’ most clichéd plots, there were a lot of really well-written moments and hilarious quotes. And Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph and Jason Lee did a fantastic job of bringing the funny, making this ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'New Year's Eve'

January 13th, 2012 2:03pm EST
Up All Night
“Up All Night” debuted in its Thursday night post-“Office” slot and proved what we kind of all already knew: it’s more than a worthy replacement for the abysmal “Whitney,” but not nearly good enough to make up for the loss of “Community.” That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped liking the show. I’ll happily eat the hamburger, but I’m still gonna be pissed that the filet mignon in unicorn sauce was taken off the menu. Aaaaanyway…this is the last time I’ll whip out the “Community” comparisons. It’s not really fair. Well, unless it’s being compared to “Parks and Recreation,” which is just as brilliant....

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Sadly, I haven’t caught last week’s pick yet: “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” However I did have the misfortune of watching the David Gordon Green comedy “The Sitter,” which turned out to be a complete dud. If you haven’t already read my review, give it a look to find out why I think Jonah Hill deserves better.

Arriving in theaters this week are the Guy Ritchie sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” the Roman Polanski parental dramedy “Carnage,” the third Chipmunks adventure “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked,” and the Roger Corman themed documentary “Corman’s World: Exploits of a...

December 8th, 2011 10:07am EST
Up All Night
This week, “Up All Night” rolled out its first Christmas episode. In the context of the series, and compared to sitcom Christmas episodes in general, it was a success.

When Chris and Reagan stroll Amy by Gene and Terry’s pimped-out “Winter Wonderland” yard display, the adorable toddler lights up like Rudolph’s nose. (The reindeer, not Maya.) Upon seeing this, Reagan decides to deck her own halls to make Amy happy, despite her aversion to overblown holiday decorations. Of course, this brings Reagan’s OCD-ness (which was in full effect last week) raging to the surface. Reagan’s mom, Angie ...

Jason Lee Renews Vows On Veteran's Day

Actor Jason Lee made the most of the special date of 11-11-11 by renewing his wedding vows with his wife Ceren Alkac.

The couple marked the date, which coincided with Veteran's Day in the U.S., by holding an intimate ceremony in front of friends and family at the Club Cicada in Los Angeles, according to People.com.

They renewed their vows alongside their three-year-old daughter Casper.

Lee and Alkac originally married in July 2008, but kept the wedding secret from the press for several months until the My Name Is Earl star slipped up and referred to his partner as his wife on the red car...

Jason Lee and Maya Rudolph in
Since my only real complaint about "Up All Night" has been that Ava's storylines often feel like they're part of a completely different show (a problem that the show has been gradually fixing), I have to give two big thumbs up to this week's episode for how it seamlessly integrates Ava into Chris and Reagan's story. Or maybe it's the other way around. Yes, "First Night Away" is also the first night that Maya Rudolph gets to be the star, while Will Arnett and Christina Applegate stand just on the edge of the spotlight, looking cute and making out a lot. And you know what? I'm surprisingly fi...

TV bosses in America have cancelled Jason Lee's cop drama Memphis Beat after just two seasons.

The show, which stars My Name Is Earl actor Lee as a police detective in Memphis, Tennessee, drew four million viewers when it debuted on the TNT network last year.

However, the program's ratings plummeted when the second season kicked off in June, and TV chiefs have decided not to bring it back for a third run, according to Variety.com.

Inspired by Crowe’s real-life experiences as a teenage rock journalist in the 1970s, "Almost Famous" tells the story of William (Patrick Fugit, Saved!), a 15-year-old music fan who gets a dream assignment to travel with an up-and-coming band and write a cover story for Rolling Stone. Filled with both drama and comedy, the film is an entertaining and touching ode to 1970s rock & roll and features outstandi...

Katie Holmes & Suri Cruise Hit The Town On Easter Sunday

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise
Katie Holmes was spotted with her daughter Suri Cruise at a Dance Brazil Performance at Joyce Theatre in New York City on Easter Sunday. We just love Suri's cheetah print flats. What do you think?

The reason we always see the little one in pretty dresses is because Suri reportedly hates wearing jeans, according to Us Weekly. At the tender age of 3, Suri, daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie, has a penchant for heels and pricey designer bags. Us Weekly reports that she even carries around an $850 Ferragamo purse!

As An Action Comedy 'Cop Out' Is The Best Of Both Worlds

February 26th, 2010 9:00am EST
Cop Out
An entertaining action film is not entirely hard to make since it does not often take a great deal of brain power to shoot gunfights and explosions. Neither is a fun comedy, because all you need is some lewd jokes to get most audiences laughing. What's much rarer however is a film that effectively blends the two genres to create an engrossing action comedy.

Kevin Smith's "Cop Out" is the best of both worlds; as a buddy cop movie, it has both action and hilarious jokes.

The plot is fairly straightforward in this film. Jimmy Monroe (Bruce Willis) is an average cop who has promised to pay f...

Coming-Of-Age Films That We All Remember

Making the transition from adolescence into adulthood is a critical phase in an individual's life. This coming-of-age period, which has been coined "emerging adulthood" by Clark University research professor, Dr. Jeffrey Arnett, is characterized by identity exploration, self-focus, instability, a belief in boundless possibilities, and feeling in-between. According to Arnett's theory, in industrialized societies the types of experiences that people have who are in their late teens to mid-20's have changed dramatically over the past 50 years. Instead of being quick to make that walk down the ...

Celebrities Trying To Bring Back The Mustache

February 6th, 2009 11:51am EST
Robert Downey Jr.
Let's be honest, men's fashion isn't nearly as much fun as women's, especially when it comes to getting all gussied up in formal garb. For men, the pot can pretty much be boiled down to three basic variables: 1. Tie shape 2. To cummerbund or not to cummerbund and 3. Level of fashion bravado. So it is totally understandable for male celebrities to become jaded with the limited realm of prosaic male attire and seek other methods of adding a little snazzle dazzle to their personal senses of style.

Many men dabble in self-expression via varying facial hair patterns - a.k.a. "manscaping." ...
