Christensen is a devout Scientologist, which stems from her upbringing as a child with Scientologist parents. In a 2013 interview, she talked at length about her religion. “If I had to sum it up, the goal of Scientology is giving the person back to themselves. Like, your own power of choice,” she said. She also discussed the misconceptions about Scientology in the interview, saying, “One, that we are some kind of closed group. Two, that we are the Hollywood religion and three, that we worship rabbits!”
The actress also said that she will expose her children to what Scientology is all about. “I would expose to them, like, this is what I do, which is how my parents did it, because my parents are Scientologists,” Christensen began. “When I was like seven, they did like this demonstration. There is this thing in Scientology, it’s a study method to demonstrate things out. I would give them the option, of like, these are our study tools. You can use them in school, get good grades, and learn.”
Christensen is current busy filming the final season of Parenthood.
Congratulations on your engagement, @ERIKAjaneC! Wishing you all the best!
