Is Michael Peña a Scientologist?

With Tom Cruise flick Lions for Lambs about to open, we were excited to see co-star Michael Peña—the hottie from Crash, Babel, and Walkout. But then we heard Michael is a Scientologist, and, well, it's kind of like when you found out your fifth grade crush picked his nose...a bit of a turn-off. We wonder: Did that connection to super-scientologo Tom help him get the part? And what is it about that religion that has so many celebs (including J.Lo, allegedly) believing their minds have been tainted by extraterrestrial interference? We're more worried about our minds getting tainted by porqueria like Feel the Noise. Oops, did we say that?
