Célébrités et scientologie: un mariage essentiel pour... la secte 

Le travail énorme de recherches exigé pour mettre au point et conserver ce document à jour est l'oeuvre de Tilman Hausherr, l'original en anglais est ici.


Nota:

- Dans "statuts", on trouve les rangs supposés atteints par la personne en scientologie. IN signifie qu'elle s'y trouverait encore.

- Il est impossible de garantir tous les faits répertoriés dans ce document: les sources scientologues ou extérieures à la secte commettent parfois des erreurs. Ne pas hésiter à signaler toute anomalie au webmaster traducteur.

Q: "Some of the articles about you over the years have indicated
that you've dabbled or more than dabbled in various kinds
of spiritual paths. Is the line, "Did you ever go clear?"
from "Famous Blue Raincoat" a Scientology reference?
A: "It was a Scientology reference. I looked into a lot of
things. Scientology was one of them. It did not last very
long. But it is very interesting, as I continue my studies
in these matters, to see how really good Scientology was
from the point of view of their data, their information,
their actual knowledge, their wisdom writings, so to speak.
It wasn't bad at all. It is scorned, and I don't know what
the organization is like today, but it seems to have all
the political residue of any large and growing organization.
Yes, I did look into that and other things."

I coached tens of people on different TRs, but I never met
anyone who was as good as von Haselberg. He never smiled,
never fluffed a line. Nothing distracted him. But then he
told me he was an acteur, so he was already well trained
in bullbait lockjaw. He described the performances that
he and his partner did. They had shaved heads and
communicated only through what sounded like cartoon noises.
They packed a set of suitcases one inside the other. Each
suitcase contained a 'ceremony'. In one they had toothpaste,
which they squeezed all over one another. They performed in
Germany and had recently annoyed a leading politician,
so he said. It was very much in tune with what Joseph Beuys
and his chums were doing in the German art world.
I liked him, he was bright and interesting and far from
being a drone."

MICHAEL WADLER and BARBARA BECKLEY, leading lights
of the Colony Theatre, a little theatre rep group, in L.A.
They've won many L.A. Drama Critics Awards for their
productions. It was Michael who, earlier, as director,
cast the unknown John Larroquette in a production of
"Enter Laughing" in the mid-'70's (the Cast Theatre, L.A.),
where an agent saw him and the rest, as they say, is
history. Larroquette met his future wife, a Scientologist,
Elizabeth ('Liz) Cookson, in that production. They're still
together.

Horst Buchholtz: I saw him at the C.C./L.A. briefly, with his wife,
being disseminated to in the privacy of her office by Yvonne Gilham
in the late '60s. [TH: Yvonne Gilham = Yvonne Jentzsch]

DIANA VENEGAS, a beauty queen from South America (represented her
country [Venezuela?] in either Miss Universe or Miss World contest),
started in N.Y., then moved to L.A. where she became a classed auditor
and an OT. She opened her own lace-gowns boutique in Beverly Hills
with her mother in the latter '70s.

From Damian Pope:
I also have a copy of a Scientology publication called
"The Church of Scientology - A vital force in your community" :)
It seems to be a Church of Scientology International publication as
it was copyrighted by Church of Scientology International in 1991.
It also lists singer Maxine Nightingale, John Travolta, musicians
Nicky Hopkins and Dave Gibbons, and Olympic gymnast Charles Lakes
as being Scientologists. (does also list Kate Ceberano)


From gisle@oslonett.no (Gisle Hannemyr)
Leif Garrett acteur, "Outsiders"
[Factnet & L. Wollersheim: "out for years"]
[Anima: actually a pop star]
Carlos Palomino jock [Factnet & L. Wollersheim: "out I think"]
[jock = not very famous athlete]
Bruce Penhall acteur [Factnet & L. Wollersheim: "don't think in"]

Didn't preserve sources, but most of these are from CoS promotional
literature and informercial TV-spots where the celebrities were doing
"testimonials".

Also Irish musician Van Morrison dedicated his 1983 album "Inarticu-
late speech of the heart" to L. Ron Hubbard. It has been claimed
that at one point, he was involved with scientology to the point
where he was serving as an "auditor". Van denies this, and has
said that he did some courses, then dropped out.
[Atack: VM was associated with scientology for a short while]

(( There is a lot of references to religious and mystic experiences in
Van Morrison's music, and it ranges from tributes to Jehova's
Witnesses ("Kingdom Hall") to Zen ("Enlightment"), so the LRH
reference can be considered just be another of Van Morrison's
skirmishes with religion. ))

Mentioned also in The Sunday Times, 7.3.1999

From julian@zoom.com (Alex France):

Van Morrison was also involved briefly as you suspected.
I suspect that his album (a terrific album)
'No Guru, No Method, No Teacher', refers at least partly to his
leaving Scn.
[smokesig@ix.netcom.com (Neal Hamel): that was his first album after leaving]


Another very prominent person who has been involved is Lou Rawls.
A photograph of Rawls graduating from the Communications Course
(the standard first course for new members) is shown in an old
G.O. publication in my collection. (The Indispensability of
Scientology, Vol 1 Issue 3) The photo is cited as being from
the Las Vegas Voice, 9/25/75. I've never seen Rawls mentioned
in connection with Scn elsewhere, so it would be reasonable to
assume that he is another who 'drifted through'.
[AF added later that Lou Rawls is a singer]
[Factnet & L. Wollersheim: "in heavily, now out for years"]

A nom I think you missed was John Dalmas, a moderately successful
writer of SF. John's early books (The Scroll of Man, Emergence)
are absolutely packed with Scn references - for instance, the
former of these starts with a restating of LRH cosmology in
biblical language. John also has published in the Free Spirit
(Vol 10, Issue 2) so mark him as another ex.
[Factnet & L. Wollersheim: if so (publishing in "Free Spirit") then he's out]

-page 48-49, _Cults of Unreason_ by Dr Christopher Evans:

In 1950 Dianetics was being taken up with great enthusiasm
in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and it had become a fad
among the well-to-do movie stars of the time. Gloria
Swanson was one of the stars who received lengthy processing and
the great jazz pianist, Dave Brubeck, made the claim that it
had helped him in his musical career. A relation of Cecil B.
de Mille even used his influence to get the phrase `Dianetic
processing' inserted into the scripts of a number of `B'
movies in place of the word `psychoanalysis', and as a
result uncomprehending movie audiences from Harwich to Hong
Kong heard a well-known actrice announce in one film that she
was late for a `Dianetic session'.



4. Interview of Diana Canova

Here are some small excerpts from an article from "Premiere" 9/93
(I claim "fair use"): an interview with Diana Canova, showing good reasons
for not entering scientology:

"I remember having a choking anger against anyone who ever said
anything against Scientology," says actrice Diana Canova (Soap),
a former member. "I would get crazy, I was just so angry. I would
have done anything for them."

During her seven years in Scientology, Canova experienced
the Celebrity Centre from both sides of fame. "When I started, I
wasn't in television yet. I was a nobody--I'd done some TV, but I
was not one of the elite, not by a long shot--until I did Soap.
Then it became . . . I mean, you really are treated like royalty."

"There was always pressure to get other celebrities in"

Canova found the Scientologists straightforward in their desire
for lucre. "The first time I walked in those doors, they said,
'Just give us all the money in your bank account. You'll get it
back tenfold.'" When she joined, auditing prices were about $25.
"It went up to about $175 in the early '80s," she recalls. "That
was shocking to me. I was beginning to wonder, Is it really worth
it? They're telling you, 'Don't spend $100 an hour on a shrink's
couch, it'll ruin your mind.' Auditing is so much better?"

"It took me years before I decided to quit," says Canova.
"I guess finally I was so fed up with being afraid. You've heard all
these horror stories . . . I believed them."

And we listen to Canova when she warns us: "They're capable of
doing a lot of things."

Canova says she spoke up because she thought it was important.
"I see some of my friends having to keep their mouths
shut for personal reasons, for business reasons," she says. "I
don't believe that's right. If it's going to be termed a
religion, or a church, then those kinds of fears have no business
being there. Nobody should be afraid. And you can quote me on that."


5. Declaration of Andre Tabayoyon

[From the case Church of Scientology International vs.
Steven Fishman and Uwe Geertz, US District Court, Central
District of California, Case No. CV 91 6426 HLH (Tx),
dismissed by CSI against themselves with prejudice.]

[David Miscavige is the current leader of scientology]


DECLARATION OF ANDRE TABAYOYON

I, ANDRE TABAYOYON, declare as follows:

(...)

115. I witnessed money from various non profit Scientology
organizations, and labor provided by various non profit Scientology
organizations being used for the personal benefit it of Miscavige, Tom
Cruise, other Scientology senior executives and other Scientology
celebrities (such as John Travolta, Chick Corea and Priscilla Presley).

116. I also saw monies and/or personnel from various Scientology
non profit religious organizations being used for the personal benefit
of Miscavige. We constructed a music room for him, a lounge, a dressing
room, a personal exercise room and personnel storage rooms. The
approximate cost of this was between $250,000, $300,000. This does not
include the cost of labor since RPFers, or slave labor was used on these
projects for personal enurement of Miscavige.

117. Miscavige, other senior Scientologists and certain
celebrities would also use the movie theater we constructed on the base
to view first run movies provided to him by his acquaintances in the
movie industry. The cost of this was easily $150,000. This cost does
not include labor (again slave labor) or expensive film projection
equipment.

118. During the 1980's, Miscavige befriended the acteur Tom Cruise
and they spend a lot of time together on the Hemet base. Their special
chef, Sinar Parman, would prepare them fancy meals. Often they would
hang out alone in the space designated for L. Ron Hubbard on the Clipper
Ship we built in the desert. This space had a small kitchen, a little
dining room, a little bar and a bed. They also had the exclusive use of
the officers lounge. On other occasions Miscavige and Cruise would work
out in the expensive gym we built for exclusive and restricted use. No
one else was allowed to talk to Tom Cruise when he was on the base. One
time one of the gardeners spoke to him and this caused a major flap on
the base. At Gold, Miscavige is known by his initials DM and Tom Cruise
by his initials TC. From the late 1980's until I left the Gold, Tom
Cruise was provided a personal and exclusive apartment and storage
facilities by the Scientology organization and at Scientology's expense.
Tom Cruise kept two Yamaha motorcycles, a Mercedes Benz automobile and a
large motor home at Gold. These were stored in what used to be
Hubbard's garage and parking lot. Obviously, Miscavige and Cruise have
developed a special relationship. One is a young world domineering
celebrity. The other is a young domineering cult leader who seeks to
'clear' the world and to rule it according to Scientology beliefs and
practices.

119. When Tom Cruise got married to Nicole Kidman, they and David
Miscavige went to a Colorado Ski Resort for the marriage ceremony. A
Sea Org staffer (Sinar Parman) was taken along to do personal cooking
for Tom Cruise and Miscavige at the expense of Scientology not for
profit religious organizations. This left only 3 cooks at Gold to cook
for 800 people three times a day.

120. I personally participated in the construction of an apartment
at the Gold base, using extensive funds from various non profit
Scientology religious organizations, for the personal and exclusive use
of Tom Cruise. This was done on the orders of David Miscavige. Even
though Miscavige has claimed to be Chairman of the Board of RTC, here he
is directing the expenditure of CSI money and the deployment of CSI
labor -- both paid and slave. Other apartment cottages were built for
the use of John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, Edgar Winters, Priscilla
Presley and other Scientology celebrities who are carefully prevented
from finding out the real truth about the Scientology organization. The
labor used to construct Tom Cruise's apartment was provided by Gold, a
division of CSI, and persons from a myriad of Scientology organizations
serving time in the RPF. The RPF (Rehabilitation Project Force) is the
Scientology gulag or concentration camp. Using RPFers to renovate and
reconstruct Tom Cruise's personal and exclusive apartment at the
Scientology Gold base is equivalent to the use of slave labor for Tom
Cruise's benefit. The Tom Cruise apartment at the Gold base is located
at the golf course end of the Gold base, closest to State Street. When
Tom Cruise visits the Gold base, and stays in his personal apartment, he
is cared for by a Sea Org steward.

121. We also had to renovate the Tom Cruise apartment at the Hemet
Base after it was damaged by a mud slide. The repairs had to be
performed on an emergency basis. Both the Gold crew and the RPFers were
placed on extended hours to restore the apartment. Again, Tom Cruise
was benefiting from the use of what is essentially prison slave labor
being worked almost around the clock.

122. Tom Cruise also enjoyed use of facilities constructed on the
Gold base that were not available to any Scientology staff except the
senior most Scientologists on the base, particularly Miscavige and his
lieutenants. For example, I saw Tom Cruise use the exercise room which
was off limits to at least 98 percent of the staff. Tom Cruise also had
unrestricted access to the Ship which has a sauna, jacuzi and a large
Olympic sized swimming pool. With regard to the Miscavige/Cruise gym
this was built in conjunction with the estates facility in approx. 1989.
The gym building cost approx. $150,000 (again using slave labor) and
contains a complete lineup of the most modern weight training equipment.
It is one of the most incredible gyms imaginable and is for the
exclusive use of Tom Cruise, David Miscavige and other specially and
specifically approved by him. It also has an incredible shower area.

123. To assure that Tom Cruise's stays at the Hemet base were
enjoyable, special provisions were made for him and restrictions were
imposed on the staff at the Hemet base. Millions of Church dollars were
spent so that millionaire Tom Cruise could regularly visit the
Scientology base and be friends with Miscavige. For example, Tom Cruise
received special meal services, special room services and the Hemet base
staff was restricted in its access to Hemet base facilities. Indeed, a
girl by the nom of Jennie Matsamura was assigned to take care of him
and his renovated cottage. The Hemet base staff was barred from going
where Tom Cruise might be present. Construction and renovation work
that was done on the base for Tom Cruise's benefit often had to be torn
up and redone because the coloring was slightly off or there were a few
inches of group that didn't quite match in color. Once we had to pour a
concrete walkway so that Tom Cruise would not have to walk on the desert
soil. Before the concrete dried it rained. The concrete was spoiled.
Miscavige went into a fury over that.

124. On one occasion, prior to a Cruise/Kidman visit, Miscavige
decided to redo the meadow in beautiful flowers; Tens of thousands of
dollars were spent on the project so that Cruise and Kidman could romp
there. However, Miscavige inspected the project and didn't like it. So
the whole meadow was plowed up, destroyed, replowed and sown with plain
grass.

125. Tom Cruise also received his upper level auditing at the Gold
base. All of his auditor training was provided under the auspices of
RTC and delivered by RTC. Officially, RTC has no auditing service
delivery capability. It exists solely to enforce the Scientology
trademarks. This is yet another example of how the purported corporate
compartmentalization exists only for the "WOG" world and has no meaning
within Scientology. At the time I left Gold, Tom Cruise had completed
Dianetics, Level O-IV, the Key to life course, the Life orientation
course and he was audited up to OT III.

126. OT III deals with body thetans ("bts") and clustered body
thetans ("clusters") . In essence, OT III deals with "the incident"
which Hubbard claims to have been the most engramic incident responsible
for the current state of man. According to OT III, 75 million years
ago, the solution to overpopulation in a space confederacy (consisting
of 26 planets) was solved. Now, each leaf on the Sea Org symbol
represents one of those planets. Each of these planets had approx.
150-200 billion citizens each. The overpopulation solution was to
disembody all the spirits ("mass murder") with the use of glycol
(alcohol and sugar) injected into the spinal cord causing an immediate
freezing up of the body and the unconsciousness of the being (soon to
become a bt or cluster) . The frozen bodies were then collected and
transported to earth (called Teegach by Hubbard) in space ships
resembling Boeing 707 jetliners. The bodies were piled up, as in the
Nazi massacres, on the top of various mountain sites around the then
earth. Inside these mountains were 17 strategically placed enormous
atomic bombs -- bigger than any built this century. After the citizens
who had been selected to be part of the solution were placed on the
mountains, the hydrogen bombs were ignited from a remote space station
(lunar moon) by the officers of Xenu who ruled the space confederacy.
After the explosions the now disembodied thetans were electronically
trapped and transported to areas now known as Hawaii and Las Palmas
where there were pre-constructed implant stations. Then there was a
long and arduous process of packaging the disembodied thetas (spirits)
into clusters with ideas, morals, social values, emotions, sensations,
pains and attitudes of what we now observe as human life. The clusters
were then dispersed over planet earth through the medium of ice. The
ice then melted and the first stage of implant command became activated.
This is known as 'Survival' in Dianetics. The bts or clusters then seek
a human body. When the bt or cluster occupies the body it will either
begin running or operating the body or the engramic commands earlier
received in the implants take place. This will occur over and over
again in what is known as the life cycle -- each time resetting the
implant and restarting its effect with a death or end of cycle.' This
technology can be used for tailor made psychosis, neurosis and general
madness. Indeed, implant technology of this sort can be used for many
purposes. Using implant technology, Hubbard teaches how you can cause
someone to do whatever you want them to do, starting at the prenatal
stage.

127. The purpose of auditing at the OT III level, such as Tom
Cruise has received, is to contact and audit the bts and clusters so
that the bts and clusters leave the body of the auditor. The purpose of
this is to free the person from the determinism of the bts and clusters.
However, the bts and clusters that are released by the solo auditor are
now back at the beginning of their implant which they received 75
million years ago. Survival then retriggers the basic implant which
then picks up a body, or attaches to one that is already occupied, and
re begins the whole cycle.

128. The ultimate goal of auditing is the return of self
determinism and abilities of the person being audited. In other words,
to return the person to the state they were in 75 million years ago
before Xenu handled the over-population problem.

129. Tom Cruise also audited Kevin Catano up to grade IV. Kevin
Catano was a member of the Sea Org security force at Gold. Usually a
Sea Org member in the security force would be audited only by a Sea Org
member -- not a public scientologist let alone Scientology celebrity.

130. Tom Cruise's p.c. (pre-clear) folder was kept in the Gold
case supervision (c/s) office which I had access to as a security
missionaire. It contains supposedly confidential information derived
during auditing sessions. However, the contents of such pre-clear
folders have been culled and used against people. it is my opinion,
based on my Scientology training, education and experience, that such
information is collected by the Scientology organization in order to be
able to exert control and influence over people such as Tom Cruise or
John Travolta should they ever attempt to leave the Scientology
organization.

131. In 1989/1990 we also constructed a tennis court at Gold for
the exclusive list of Celebrities and Miscavige. Non profit Scientology
religious organization funds were used for this inurement project. The
tennis court cost at least $200,000 to build. The rubber coating alone,
on the tennis court, cost $80,000. Then there was the landscaping and
rose garden around the tennis court.


(...)

I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United
States of America and of the State of California that the foregoing is
true and correct. Executed in Los Angeles, California this 5th day of
March, 1994.

6. Harassment of Mike Farrell

["Fair Use" excerpt of Premiere, Sept 1993, "Catch a rising star"]

To this day, people who tangle with Scientology find themselves
subject to aggressive efforts at intimidation. Mike Farrell, who
played B.J. on the television series M*A*S*H, crossed paths with
the church when he contacted the Cult Awareness Network for
information on a film project about child abuse. After gaining
great respect for their work, he attended a fund-raising event at
a private home in Beverly Hills, where he was confronted by angry
picketers. "There were people taking photographs, being very
obvious, getting video footage of the guests as they went in
and out -- obvious harassment," he says.

Farrell says he asked one of the pickets if he was a
Scientologist, and the man said yes. In an effort to be fair,
Farrell had lunch with Reverend Heber Jentzsch, president of the
Church of Scientology International, and investigated
Scientology's charges against CAN. The acteur says he found them
to be based on "sham, invective, and distortion." Later, at a CAN
convention near the L.A. airport, Farrell encountered more angry
Scientologists. "Not only did they picket, but they sort of get
in your face and give you this loud and incessant spiel that
doesn't allow for dialogue -- it's just a kind of attempt to
intimidate."

In the last few months Farrell has gotten numerous strange phone
calls, one telling him (falsely, as it turned out) that an old
friend had died. There have been so many that now when he gets
calls after midnight at his home, he answers, "Hubbard was
crazy." Sometimes, he says, there's a long silence before the
caller hangs up.


7. Why do celebrities get into scientology ?

Why do they join ? Because other celebrities already did, and because
some behind the scenes people are working to get them lured in.
It is also a stage tradition to maintain small superstitions, like
"lucky shoes", etc.

Besides that, people usually join a cult when beeing in a
"transition state", like starting in college, getting divorced,
getting fired, starting new job, etc. And actors are always in
transition: after having completed an assignment, they have fears:

- Will the film, musical or play be a success ?
- Will they get a new job ? This must be terrible, and totally new
for most of us, since we get paid every month and only search
a new job every few years.

The last one makes actors very vulnerable to someone selling
certainty or confidence.

LRH indicates this in HCOPL 1.1.1963:

"Rapid dissemination can be attained (...)
by the rehabilitation of celebrities who are just beyond
or just approaching their prime"

Reason for this: celebrities who *are* currently at the top are not
vulnerable enough for scieno-babble.

Celebrities won't get subjected to the dirty tactics
(hard sell, long silly studies) that average clients get.
I assume that they get a "light" version of scientology and will
surely not be audited by people who had only a few days training.

LRH indicates this in HCOPL 1.1.1963:

"A Class IV auditor only may be assigned to do the actual
processing"

and

"The pay is to be 'Any contribution you would care to make
if we have helped.' No other pay is demanded."

Do they profit from scientology ? The question is if anyone gets
a profit from scientology. A good quote from Chris Schafmeister
was "Do you attribute it to scientology when you had a 'success'
in the restroom ?". The answer is that some people do attribute
their successes to scientology. When someone has no success with
scientology, then it is policy to attribute the failure to that person,
or to a staff member, but never to scientology itself.

Factnet & L. Wollersheim's opinion:
"It produces more failures than successes; upcoming actors fail to
'come' a lot. Scientology holds most acting careers back."

Are they dupes ? A celebrity in show-business is not a celebrity
because of smartness, but because of good look or good performance.
Celebrities also live in their own "party forever" world. This does
surely not include reading TIME magazine or the Washington Post.
This doesn't mean that all people who join are dumb, it was just
an answer to the question.
