Jason Lee is Finally Free

Us Weekly reports that Mallrats and My Name is Earl actor Jason Lee, 46, has left Scientology. He moved to Denton, Texas with wife Ceren Alkac and daughter Casper, 8, and Sonny, 4, in 2015 (his son Pilot Inspektor, 12, is shared with his ex-fiancée Beth Riesgraf). He recently gave an interview to his local paper, where he is quoted as follows:

“I haven’t purchased anything in Denton. That was never really the plan. But I do rent a little photo office space. It’s nice to have a place away from home for scanning and editing my film photos, listening to records and just being around my cameras and books and whatnot. If Ceren and I had an idea for a business, it certainly wouldn’t happen at the cost of someone else’s. 

And being that we don’t practice Scientology, and that we aren’t particularly interested in opening religious centers in general, we have no plans to open a Scientology center. Quite a few rumors about me/us floating around, but none of it’s true. We’re not here to buy up or change or take over Denton, put some kind of personal stamp on it. We’re just here like anyone else who wants to be a part of Denton’s very cool creative community, and to be involved and perhaps help where we can.”

Lee's ex-wife Carmen Llywelyn revealed that Jason Lee was originally brought into the church by Marissa Ribisi when they dated in the early 90s. Ribisi is married to Beck, who is a Scientologist by birth (both his parents were Scientologists). 

Way to go, Jason!
