Perhaps the church's most controversial member, Danny Masterson, who starred as Steven Hyde on That 70's Show, is a lifelong Scientologist.

“Anyone can say anything about anything. How true it is, I guess that’s up to the reader," he said in a 2015 interview. "If you’re going to write something, and you don’t ask the people who actually do it, then what’s the f***ing point?"

The late Kirstie Alley starred on the iconic show Cheers — which ended it's run in 1993 — and was a fierce defender of the religion which she was apart of for 40 years of her life.

“Scientology has been cloaked in mystery fabricated by the press, mostly," she wrote in her memoir The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine Al Dente). “It’s actually analytical and easy to understand. It does not include aliens, although I’d love to meet a few and believe we are not alone in the vastness of the universe.”
