Scientologist Giovanni Ribisi

Giovanni Ribisi is a Scientologist and a very successful actor. He first came to prominence as "Wade" in Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan" and has gone on to star in everything from serious drama such as "Cold Mountain" to popcorn such as "Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow". If you saw him in "Flight of the Phoenix" last year as the nerdy but ruthless Elliott, you'll realize what a versatile actor he is. In a recent interview when asked what had interested him in Scientology he said, "... it was just applying something that was getting results. ... In Scientology when you standardly apply a, b and c, you always get this result." He's referring to the fact that Scientology is an applied religion, It provides methods of addressing problems and situations in life, methods that if applied correctly, get a successful result every time. A great example of this is the Scientology course: "How to Improve Conditions in Life".
