Last week, Laura Prepon was linked (again) to Tom Cruise except in two new interviews to promote the second season of Orange Is The New Black, which she almost wasn’t apart of for reasons that now sound even shadier, she denies dating him while making sure to stick to the Scientology talking points that he’s a hot handsome man and she’s a super-busy professional thanks to her intergalactic foresight. Also, they love gays. Just love them! Via The Daily Beast:

What was the scheduling conflict with Season 2?
Unfortunately, I can’t really talk about it because it’s not out yet and under wraps. But it was a work thing. I’d gotten another job. Here’s the thing: It’s actually really flattering that everyone was trying to figure out what was going on with my character, but it’s a double-edged sword, because people were making up stories. A lot of our jobs is about timing. Even going into Season 3—if we get a Season 3—some of the actors have already gotten other jobs, so it’s just a part of our industry. When you’re not under a “series regular” contract and other jobs come up, you try to juggle everything. On That ’70s Show we’d have to shoot out Ashton [Kutcher] if he was doing a movie. It’s the same thing here. But I’m glad that I’m returning because I missed the girls and it sucked not being there.

Speaking of crazy rumors… where did these rumors that you’re dating Tom Cruise come from?
Oh god… I knew this would come up! Dude, I have no idea. I really don’t know. I totally respect him and think he’s an amazing actor, but I’m not dating him. I don’t know what else to say. It’s crazy. It just goes to show: Don’t believe everything you read. I have no idea where it came from. I don’t know how we ended up “together.” I’m flattered because I think he’s hot so I’m like, “Oh, that’s nice,” and apparently he’s very gentlemanly with me. Apparently we get along great and he knows that I have a favorite bottle of wine that I didn’t even know I had. So, apparently he’s on cloud nine…. [Laughs]

And here she is going HAM for L. Ron while talking to SheKnows:

Another common misconception is that Scientologists are automatically anti-gay, a rumor that Prepon also wanted to put to rest.
“You know, in terms of portraying a lesbian on the show, I am a huge supporter of the LGBT community. I’m going to the GLAAD Awards in a few weeks. I went to the human rights campaign. I flew up to San Francisco and did this whole thing and I won this award [for] being a straight woman portraying a gay woman on camera. I’m a total supporter of the LGBT and they are an amazing fan base.”
Prepon doesn’t understand the need for people to create information about her life, especially when it conflicts with her own beliefs.
“It’s just so funny that, when people don’t know, they just make stuff up, [like], apparently I’m dating Tom Cruise right now. And apparently he doesn’t want me doing the show because I portray a lesbian and I’m a Scientologist. This is false; where are they even getting this stuff? It’s unbelievable to me.”
According to Prepon, there can be a bright side to all the false information: Such as when you get to show people a different side of the story.
“People who first meet me don’t know about Scientology at all — and I’m always willing to talk to whoever about it — but it’s funny because, on numerous occasions, they were like, ‘I had no idea what Scientology was, but working with you and seeing how you conduct yourself and how you acknowledge people and you’re such a professional.’”
“They’re like, ‘Whatever you’re doing with Scientology, it’s amazing.’ And, ‘If Scientology helps you be like that, then we’re all about it,’” Prepon added.

In Laura Prepon’s defense, I’m willing to believe she’s not dating Tom Cruise because not many people survive the obstacle course phase of the audition process. (True story: Katie Holmes‘ left arm? Completely prosthetic. Goddamn laser snakes…) As for Scientology being openly accepting of gays and not trying to cure them with space magic? Here’s my rebuttal to that:

    Look at the Member List.
    OF COURSE they aren’t anti-gay.

    • Considering the general trend of hollywood liberalism and all gay up in there, I find it tough to believe that $cientology is truly anti-gay. Besides, it’s generally in the best interest of businesses to not piss of a segment of the population they could be extracting money from.

      I think TC and JT are the sort of dudes that will suck off a man at the highway rest stop, go home to their wives, and with a straight face (because they really 100% believe it) tell you they aren’t gay. I think it’s more on them than it is on $cientology.

      Then again, if $cientology is really anti-gay, it wouldn’t be the first time hokey mumbo jumbo bullshit has convinced folks that the gays are bad. It also wouldn’t be the first time that practitioners of hokey mumbo jumbo bullshit have pulled off the mental gymnastics required to be a subscriber to the bullshit while simultaneously disregarding the blantantly clear interpretation of what the $criptures or $ci-fi books say about the gays.

      In conclusion, TCLTC and JTLTC.

    “They treat gays equally,” Prepon continued. “They end up on the same prison-slave ships that the straights do.”

  3. Wow….she had TWO glasses of Kool-Aid

    What do you expect from a group that actively tried to infiltrate several western governments.

    • They managed to get into the IRS pretty well

      • jim15

        Actually, they not only had people infiltrating the IRS; but also had their own spies in Justice, the State Dept., several embassies (both foreign and domestic), in Treasury, and in some large local governments. The French have found Co$ spies in their own Ministry of Justice; and both the British and the Germans have the Co$ on their offical watch lists because they have found Co$ spies in their governments. Some countries have gone as far as passing laws barring Scientologists from holding public [government] jobs because they too have found them engaging in espionage. Google “Operation Snow White” if you really want an idea how the Co$ rolls.

    She looks like crap with dark hair, and with that disgusting skin tone lipstick she’s been using lately.

    But what the fuck….Cruise wants dark hair, he gets dark hair.

    But seriously….get your own life woman….you were fine with dirty blonde or even red hair.

    It takes a man hand to cup Ms. Prepon’s breast.

    Isn’t she, like, about 3 ft. taller than him?

    Eh, I don’t suppose the height disparity matters during pegging…

    “Don’t believe everything you read.”

    The irony of that statement was obviously lost on her.

  14. Poh-tay-toe poh-tah-toe

    meh, You tell folks you believe in volcano space alien molluscs they think you’re in a weird cult. You tell them you believe the beardy sky man had a magic son who could die and come back they call you devout. Go figure.

  15. The minute I find out anyone is a Scientologist, my estimation of their IQ drops by at least 60 points. How f-ing stupid can you be to buy into that crap? Read Jenna Miscavage’s book. I felt like I was spying on a really stupid group of bossy third grade girls. “Stand by the wall. Look at the wall. Walk away from the wall”
