How they manage to do it is beyond Entertainmentwise, but the Church of Scientology seems to have claimed another celebrity, this time in the form of Lindsay Lohan.
LiLo, whose recent life has resembled a never-ending train wreck, has reportedly been recruited by John Travolta, a firm believer in the bizarre teachings of L. Ron Hubbard, who has suggested that a good dose of religion might cure her of her ills.
The 57-year-old is believed to have dished out this well-intentioned, if utterly hopeless, advice after the pair signed on to star in the mafia biopic Gotti: Three Generations, with Travolta telling producers that he would take Lindsay "under his wing."
An insider told The National Enquirer: "Even though producers were hesitant to hire Lindsay because of her troubled past. Travolta assured them he'd take her under his wing.
"He feels confident he'll be able to keep her on the straight and narrow … now and forever."
LiLo has apparantly agreed to attend a Church of Scientology induction course, with the source adding: "John introduced Lindsay to one of the church's top counsellors and – even though she's been cast in a new role and won't play the star's daughter in the flick – she's assured him she'll still attend the series of induction classes that will make her a Scientologist."
If she does end up joining the cult, Lohan will be in the company of Hollywood stars, such as Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes - perhaps its most famous members.
