Ethan shattering suppression: “If I want something I can just go and get it. And I know with certainty that I want the right thing and I’m not going to mess myself up in the process of going after what I want. And that’s amazing.”

“Ethan is a laid back guy, but he’s married to someone who is so hardcore, Juliette Lewis’s sister Brandy,” says our Celebrity Centre source. “And even though Ethan’s friendship to Jason Lee was so important to him, in Scientology it’s ‘out of sight, out of mind.’ What he’s hearing from OT 8s right now is things like ‘Well, I never really had a good feeling about Jason’.”

Former Sea Org worker and Scientology technical expert Sunny Pereira: “The President’s Office at Celebrity Centre found out that Ethan was part of Leonardo DeCaprio’s ‘Pussy Posse’ and tried to get Ethan to recruit Leo several times. Total fail. Ethan refused to even try.”
