With the loss of some prominent members over the past couple of years, the Church of Scientology has been on the prowl to enlist some new members from the celebrity world. According to sources, Tom Cruise wasn’t the only big fish that was recruited to join Scientology. Apparently, Brad Pitt and Bono were top of the list targets that were courted by the controversial church.
According to RadarOnline, Jenna Miscavige Hill, who is Scientology leader David Miscavige’s niece and former church member, has knowledge of two big-time A-Listers’ relationship with Scientology. Miscavige admitted that the church has a celebrity strategy that’s focus is based upon influence not money (sure….). According to Miscavige’s tell-all memoir she published earlier this year, “Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape” , Jenna speaks about how Brad Pitt was pursuaded by then girlfriend Juliette Lewis and even went so far as taking the first steps to joining.

Admittedly, we don’t know much about the Church of Scientology, but from our exposure there isn’t much that appeals to us about joining. We will see how the celebrity world feels about it going forward.
