That ’70s Show and Orange Is the New Black star Laura Prepon has left the Church of Scientology, admitting that it’s not a part of her life anymore.
Laura Prepon is speaking up about her life after quitting the Church of Scientology.
During a recent interview with People, the popular TV actress stated that she has not been a committed Scientologist in nearly “five years.”
Despite the fact that she stopped following that particular belief system a long time ago, Laura further claimed she has explored and embraced different religions all her life.

Prepon told the publication,
I’m no longer practicing Scientology. I’ve always been very open-minded, even since I was a child. I was raised Catholic and Jewish. I’ve prayed in churches, meditated in temples. I’ve studied Chinese meridian theory. I haven’t practiced Scientology in close to five years and it’s no longer part of my life.
Laura mentioned that she finds peace in meditating, which she performs with her partner, Ben Foster, who has never followed Scientology.
They meditate every day, and she’s really enjoying it, Laura said, adding, this is because it allows her to hear her own voice, and it’s something they can do together.
Laura originally revealed her Scientology participation in an interview with Celebrity magazine, which is apparently linked with the group.
Speaking in 2014, she explained:
So, when I first got into Scientology, I did Personal Values and Integrity and then Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life. These courses touched on the observations I was aware of when I was younger. It was right there in black and white. It was amazing, and I felt that finally something was speaking my language. It totally connected with me. Pretty soon after that I got onto the Purification Rundown, and I started moving up the Bridge.
Laura Prepon, a mother of two, who is presently enjoying a “quieter” routine at home, stated that life is finally starting to have some form of stability again, so for now, it’s just work, family, and trying to catch a laugh whenever they can.
