Danny Masterson to Scientology Critics: You Can "Go F-" Yourselves - 2015-02-12
Danny Masterson, best known for his role as Steven Hyde on Fox's That '70s Show, addressed Scientology critics in a rare and candid interview with Paper magazine.
Alongside Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and Masterson's wife, Bijou Phillips, the second-generation Scientologist is just one of many Hollywood stars who are public followers of the religion (or "religious philosophy," as Masterson called it).
Masterson was interviewed in January during the Sundance Film Festival, where director Alex Gibney's controversial Scientology documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, was just days away from its world premiere. The Church of Scientology had previously made efforts to discredit the film through public statements posted on its Twitter account and in the pages of The New York Times. Claiming that the documentary was based on ungrounded facts, the Church tweeted: "Free speech is not a free pass to broadcast or publish false information."
