Although nobody even knew they were dating, actor Giovanni Ribisi and model Agyness Deyn eloped in L.A. last weekend. That does leave me with one big question, though: is Agyness a Scientologist?
Giovanni is a second-generation Scientologist. His mother, Gay Ribisi
, is a well-known casting agent who is very active in the Los Angeles Scientology community. His twin sister, Marissa Ribisi
, is married to Beck
, also a second-generation Scientologist and a longtime family friend. Giovanni’s ex-wife, Mariah O’Brien
, was also a Scientologist. (She may still be one, but I don’t know much about her except that she and Giovanni had a kid together before they divorced.) Considering how closely tied this family is to Scientology, I can’t imagine that Giovanni would marry someone who wasn’t at least taking courses or getting audited. I guess we’ll know the answer if the couple buys a second home in East Grinstead, England (where the UK Scientology base is).
Anyway, mazel tov, you crazy kids!
