Wow, it looks like Brad Pitt was THIS CLOSE to becoming another Tom Cruise. The Hollywood actor says he was approached to join Scientology some years ago but declined their offer because he just didn’t see himself joining the cult-like religion. Here’s what we’re reading:
Jenna knows the Church from the inside after spending virtually her whole life in it before defecting eight years ago.
The 29-year-old ex-member recounted how Pitt, soon-to-be-married to Angelina Jolie, went through the Purification Rundown, also known as the Purif or the Hubbard Method, a controversial detoxification program developed by Scientology’s founder L. Ron Hubbard and used by the Church of Scientology as an introductory service. Scientologists consider it an effective way to deal with the long-term effects of drug abuse or toxic exposure.
“I remember my mum working on renovations for the Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles and she saw Brad Pitt there,” she recalled. “I was in love with him at the time. He was in there to do the Purification Rundown. It’s like the first step. I guess he was doing it because of his girlfriend Juliette Lewis. I know Juliette was into drugs and says Scientology saved her from them.”
Whoa! Who would have ever thought, right? Either way, it looks like Brad is in a very good place with his family right now although I can’t help but wonder how his life would have changed if he did in fact join Scientology… What do you think?
