Giovanni Ribisi

"Gone in 60 Seconds" actor Giovanni Ribisi is an active member of L. Ron Hubbard's church. Ribisi's parents are Scientologists, as is his twin sister, Marissa, and her husband, musician Beck. In a 2007 interview with Now Toronto, the actor defended the Church, saying: "I grew up with Scientology -- my parents at one point were clerical. It's a pragmatic philosophy, not merely a belief system. Yeah, it's had media exposure because certain luminaries do Scientology, but millions of people do it who are not celebrities. It's not a threat or some cult."
