Juliette Lewis on Hollywood, Why the MSM Hates Scientology, and Masturbating to George Clooney - 2014-09-19
You're a Scientologist. What do you think are the biggest misconceptions about Scientology?
I'll get all conspiratorial on you, and I'm just going to throw this out: The mainstream media is funded by pharmaceutical companies, so when you have the biggest movie star in the world at the time—Tom Cruise—coming out against anti-depressants and Ritalin and just saying, "Hey, why don't you put a warning label on there?" The thing about Scientology is it is anti-drug in that you're seeking relationship or communication tools—simple basics on how to live better. So, when Tom came out about that, I've never seen someone get torn down so hard, and they still brutalize him with Scientology pieces to this day. It's a religious philosophy and self-help movement. And you'll never see a truthful word written about it in mainstream media.
