Lewis Found Comfort In Scientology

Actress-turned-rocker JULIETTE LEWIS found strength in Scientology after taking part in a drug rehabilitation programme developed by the religion's founder L RON HUBBARD.

The KALIFORNIA star, who battled a drug addition in her twenties, claims Scientology and its philosophy on life gave her the strength to overcome her weaknesses.

She says, "There are temptations. You sometimes get overwhelmed, but there's a lot in Scientology that helps you not get overwhelmed.

"So whenever I go back home, it's something I go back to, there's always so much to learn.

"Because of all the stuff I've done in Scientology, it made me more fearless and allowed me to listen to my inner artistic voice.

"In that sense, it's actually made me more of an individual, more expressive, which is very important for an artist."

Other celebrity followers of the religion include JOHN TRAVOLTA and TOM CRUISE.
