Updated 31 Jul 2020 538.4k views27 items

This list contains information about famous ex-Scientologists, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Several prominent figures in Hollywood were once members of the Church of Scientology. Some of these celebrities were raised as Scientologists, while others joined later in life, before ultimately leaving. Many famous ex-Scientologists are also ex-wives of Tom Cruise.

Who is the most famous former Scientologist? Nicole Kidman tops this list. Kidman was a member of the Church of Scientology when she was married to Tom Cruise from 1990-2001. She has since been labeled as Roman Catholic. Cruise's ex-wives Katie Holmes and Mimi Rogers also left Scientology.

Author Neil Gaiman was raised in the Church of Scientology, but he no longer believes in organized religion. When asked about the existence of God, Gaiman said, "I don't know, I think there's probably a 50/50 chance. It doesn't really matter to me."

Do you think these celebs are better off now that they left Scientology?
