On Tuesday, August 17, Laura Prepon said in an interview that she has left the Church of Scientology. The news evoked reactions from some fans, while others became curious to know what she’s up to these days with her husband, Ben Foster.

It is a known fact among Orange Is The New Black fandom that like Tom Cruise and many other A-List celebs, Laura used to be an ardent follower of Scientology. Hence, her latest revelation has come as quite a shock to many.

In her latest interview with People Magazine, the 41-year-old star said: “I’m no longer practising Scientology. I haven’t practiced Scientology in close to five years and it’s no longer part of my life.”

She also went on to talk about her experience with motherhood and her latest business venture, “PrepOn Kitchen”.

Who is Ben Foster?

Laura and her husband Ben have been married for three years. However, the couple is notoriously secretive about their relationship, so much so, that the actress’ Instagram posts do not feature her husband in them. Ben, on the other hand, isn’t even on the social media platform.

As many might already know, both Laura and Ben are from the entertainment industry. Like his wife, Ben, 40, is an actor too. The Boston, Massachusetts native is the son of restaurant owners Steven Foster and Gillian Kirwan.

He is known for his roles in films like X-Men: The Last StandAlpha Dog, Flash Forward, The PunisherThe Messenger, The Program and 3:10 to Yuma among others.

He also famously starred in the Academy Award-nominated film Hell or High Water.

Ben was engaged to House of Cards star Robin Wright in 2014. But the pair separated a year after he popped the big question.

Relationship with Laura Prepon explored

Ben and Laura, who are parents to two wonderful children, have known each other for years. The duo first met when they were 18, but their bond then was strictly platonic.

Reports have claimed that they were introduced by mutual friend Danny Masterson, who was one of the stars of That ’70s Show.

The couple reportedly starting dating in 2016 and were engaged the same year. Their wedding was a super-secret affair. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Ella, in August 2017, before their son was born in February last year.

Actress details leaving Scientology

While Laura did talk about leaving Scientology in her interview, many fans seem to think that she barely brushed past the topic and did not delve into any real details.

While she did not reveal the exact reason for her decision, she said: “I’ve always been very open-minded, even since I was a child.

“I was raised Catholic and Jewish. I’ve prayed in churches, meditated in temples. I’ve studied Chinese meridian theory. I haven’t practised Scientology in close to five years and it’s no longer part of my life.”
