Erika Christensen

Unlike many celebrity Scientologists, Erika Christensen was actually born into the religion and was home-schooled by her parents based on its teachings. The 30-year-old “Parenthood” actress even considers Tom Cruise one of her mentors. "Scientology helps me in acting to focus on communication," she told the New York Daily News in 2004. “It's almost a safety precaution when you're an actor, because some people can be traumatized by characters, and I don't have to worry about that.”
