Michael Peña: ‘Scientology made me a better actor’ https://t.co/lwyg1x0DZI— Guardian Film (@guardianfilm) October 6, 2016
-He took his first step out of concern about his drinking – “I wasn’t an alcoholic, but I was doing it too much” – entering the detox programme Purification Rundown. “And then there was the next thing, and the next thing. For me, it isn’t religion like a belief; it’s practical things you do.”
-He credits another Scientology programme, Study Tech, with making him a more confident reader. “Which made me a better actor because I felt like it helped my understanding of scripts.”
-He must be aware of the endless controversy that surrounds the organisation? “Yeah, but I don’t read that stuff.” He’s aware of it, though? “Yeah but – OK, imagine we’re friends, you and me. Buddies. And there’s a tabloid story about you. There’s no way I’m going to read some fucking tabloid story about you.” He looks straight at me again. “Especially when I know it’s misinformed.”
