Church of Scientology Tried to Recruit Brad Pitt?
Brad Pitt Turned Down Scientology, Broke Up with Juliette Lewis
Ever since Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, interest in Scientology has had a marked upturn.
Details of Holmes having to sneak about and get her affairs in order before filing for divorce definitely makes one wonder what goes on behind closed doors at the Church of Scientology.
There's also been more interest surrounding other celebrity Scientologists, as well as those who once belonged to the church and have since left.
More interesting yet are those that were thisclose to becoming Scientologists, but came to their senses and decided it wasn't right for them.
Brad Pitt was one of those people, as his then-girlfriend, Juliette Lewis, was involved in Scientology.
Pitt took two Scientology courses in 1991 and 1993, according to the book, "Scientology -- Abuse at the Top," by former high-ranking church official Amy Scobee.
Scobee wrote, "In the end, Brad didn't think it was for him and he and Juliette broke up." She added, "He was high on the church president's list of stars they felt could be ‘recovered.'"
Did Pitt and Lewis break up because he decided he wasn't into Scientology?
Good on him.
