Once one of the more visible followers of the Thetan fun time religious cult known as Scientology (he reportedly “disconnected” with a wife over his former faith), Jason Lee has revealed that he is no longer on board L. Ron Hubbard’s volcano spaceship. In an interview with Denton, Texas’ culture blog The Dentonite, Jason let it slip that he doesn’t have to pretend like Tom Cruise is a god of wisdom anywhere. He can openly be glib!
Jason and his wife Ceren are now residents of Denton, TX, and also part-owners of a local restaurant. He was asked about what else he might be involved with in the area.
Aside from my small slice of B&B, I have no ownership in any other businesses. While I’d be happy to take credit for these amazing places, I don’t in fact own West Oak Coffee Bar, or Earl’s, or 940’s, etc. And I have nothing to do with Rubber Gloves or any other venues or businesses closing down. If Ceren and I had an idea for a business, it certainly wouldn’t happen at the cost of someone else’s. And being that we don’t practice Scientology, and that we aren’t particularly interested in opening religious centers in general, we have no plans to open a Scientology center. Quite a few rumors about me/us floating around but none of it’s true.
It sounds like there’s some Mallrats nay-sayers amongst Denton’s social scene. They should chill, because Jason could have brought Anne Archer and the rest of the L. Ron Hubbard stans and Denton could have ended up like Clearwater, Florida. THAT town is HQ for the Tom Cruise Church of Present-Day Taints!
This is good news for Lee. Because anyone who would named their son Pilot Inspektor sounds like they might like to have fun now and then. Scientologists sound like they don’t have a lot of time for fun what with the having to fork over huge amounts of $$$ to the church, strangely ignoring/worshipping crying children on bathroom floors, and contending with deluded neckbeards like Danny Masterson.
