Jennifer Lopez has revealed she would consider sending her twins Max and Emme to a Scientology school
Jennifer Lopez would consider sending her twins to a Scientology school.
The actress-and-singer, whose father is a follower of the bizarre sci-fi cult, insists her seven-month-old twins Max and Emme would benefit from being educated at one of the controversial religion's centres.
When asked if she would send her children to a Scientology school, Jennifer replied: "Yeah. I wouldn't mind. Not at all. Because I know that the technologies that they have are very helpful… It's all about communication. That's the thing I really don't like about talking about this.
"I do know so many great people who choose it as a lifestyle and really follow it and it is their religion… I just wish that people wouldn't judge it without knowing what it is."
Although Jennifer has denied she is a Scientologist, the 39-year-old star admits she draws on the religion - which also counts Tom Cruise and Jada Pinkett Smith among its followers - when she is feeling low.
She explained to website The Daily Beast: "I do know a lot about Scientology. And I know about the practices. I know all about what the technology is and it's very helpful. So in a sense, yeah, you do call on it."
In June, it was revealed Jada's husband Will Smith had spent nearly $1 million on a private school that bases some of its education programmes on Scientology.
The 'I Am Legend' actor gave the money to California's New Village Academy of Calabasas, where the curriculum uses different educational theories including 'Study Technology' - a learning method developed by the bizarre sci-fi cult's late creator L. Ron Hubbard.
Will has denied he is a Scientologist.
