Stanley Kubrick's lost daughter — The Daily Beast
Type: Press
Author(s): Nicole LaPorte
Source: The Daily Beast
In an exclusive interview, the director’s stepdaughter breaks her silence about her Scientologist sister, Vivian, who hasn’t spoken to the family in 10 years. For the last ten years, whenever anyone asked Katharina Kubrick—stepdaughter of the late, legendary filmmaker, Stanley Kubrick—about her youngest step-sister Vivian, her response was, “Oh, she’s living in L.A., doing something.” Their mother, Christiane Kubrick, would say the same thing. “We weren’t lying, we were just being economical with the truth,” Katharina says over the telephone from ...

Inside Scientology's big defection — The Daily Beast
Type: Press
Author(s): Kim Masters
Source: The Daily Beast
What led Crash director Paul Haggis to leave the church after 35 years? Kim Masters reports on how Scientology aided his career—and then tried to milk his success. Maybe Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige had a premonition. Or maybe he’s not much of a talent spotter. But a few years back, Miscavige apparently wasn’t keen on using writer-director Paul Haggis for a series of films based on treatments by the late Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. This was before Haggis, ...

There is no doubt that the last week has brought a flurry of bad news for Scientology. There was the vocal defection of respected film director Paul Haggis, as well as fresh indications that John Travolta, one ...

Travolta's Scientology turning point? — The Daily Beast
Type: Press
Author(s): Kim Masters
Source: The Daily Beast
The actor’s public acknowledgement that his son, who died in January, was autistic has former Scientologists convinced that he will leave the church—which they say has little tolerance for chronic conditions. When John Travolta took the witness stand last week and testified that his late son, Jett, was autistic, it came as a grim relief to some former Scientologists. “Wasn’t that amazing?” said a fallen-away church member after Travolta appeared in an extortion case that followed the death of his 16-year-old ...

"Just sue. Just do it. Sue, sue, sue. Do it. Go, go, go, go." -Tom Cruise, revealing in Details magazine how he tells his lawyer to deal with negative press. It’s been a fun couple of weeks here at the Beast. After a long, hard Buffalo winter spent slogging away, running on fumes with little relief and few rewards, the last few days have brought some cheer, and put some gas in our tank. Smiles abound in the usually ...
