Laura Prepon is crediting all of her success, professionally and otherwise, to Scientology.
The Orange Is the New Black actress opened up in Celebrity magazine—an official publication by the Church of Scientology—about her experiences with the top secret religion.
"Honestly, I've become more me. The auditing has stripped away all of this charge, false ideas, decisions and mis-emotions that were affecting me," she began by explaining.
"In my life, things have become much easier. I'm not affected like I used to be. Things don't bother me that had before. I don't react like I did before."
But Prepon admits that she was hesitant about her devotion to the religion hindering on her ability to succeed as an actor.
"I was worried because I'm an actress and as an artist, I need to tap into my emotions! What soon started happening was that the higher I went on the Bridge and the more auditing I had, I could move so more freely on the Tone Scale. My emotions were so much more tangible and easy to access."
She continued, "Another big realization I had in my auditing is that there is a bigger picture. This is my career but it does not define me. I am bigger than this career and industry. It's my job and it's very important to me, but, when I have huge wins in session, and you really cognate that you are a thetan and you have a mind and body, and that the MEST universe does not control you—it puts things into perspective."
