Benedict Cumberbatch sure knows how to spice up an evening. The star of Star Trek and Sherlock (related: when is a new season airing? It has been forevvvvvver) says that he went through a church-flashing phase while on a childhood summer trip to Greece:"I used to expose myself in front of religious places.

When looking for a partner, some people try online dating. But others, like actress Viola Davis, appeal to a higher power. The Oscar-nominated star of The Help and Doubt told the New York Post, "I was the loneliest woman in the world, and someone said, 'You should just pray for a husband.' I said I wanted a big black man from the South who looked like a football player, who already had children, who maybe had been married before . . . 3 1/2 weeks later I met my husband."Viola's heaven-sent … [Read more...]

Actress Erika Christensen, who has appeared in movies like Swimfan and Traffic, is a second-generation Scientologist. (Just like Beck!) Though she is active in the Church and attends plenty of Scientology events, she doesn't usually speak out about her beliefs as much as fellow Scientologists like Tom Cruise and Kirstie Alley.

If these musings from Mandy Patinkin, aka Saul from Homeland and Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, aren't FGP Celebrity Quote of the Week material, I honestly don't know what is. From Esquire's "What I Learned" feature:"My sense of religion is Einstein's sense of relativity. I don't believe in God. I believe that energy never dies. So the possibility exists that you might be breathing in some other form of Moses or Buddha or Muhammad or Bobby Kennedy or Roosevelt or Martin Luther King … [Read more...]

The ever-innovative Beck has a new album out - but it's actually a collection of sheet music written by the musician rather than an album full of his songs. New York magazine has an interview with him, and they a) actually ask a Scientology question and b) actually get some sort of an answer. Beck, like other famous Scientologists, is known for dodging questions about his beliefs or simply refusing to answer, but he did talk a little in this interview: He seems exceedingly grounded. He is even … [Read more...]

Comedian and former Saturday Night Live star Victoria Jackson is a Christian and a vocal right-wing activist. While the country was reacting to the horrific murders of 26 people in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday (a figure which included 20 kindergarteners), Jackson chose to focus on anger instead of compassion. She went on Facebook to rant about what she saw as the real cause of the shootings - not a troubled young man, but a country who doesn't love God enough: My friend Jim Riley posted: … [Read more...]
