5. Does he share Laura's commitment to Scientology?

Not only did Ben date Sean Penn's ex-wife Robin Wright, he was engaged to her twice. The former couple was engaged for 10 months before Robin called it off in November 2014, citing their 14-year age difference and busy filming schedules as the reason.
