This includes any person who is well-acquainted with and likes publicity, but is either past their prime or approaching it. [...] The payment will be: "any contribution that you would like to make, in case we have helped. No further payment will be demanded."

December 29, 1998 Looking To The Stars For Spiritual Answers "Scientology has specific policies to recruit celebrities into a public relations mode," says Dr. Stephen Kent, professor of the sociology of religion at the University of Alberta. "The end result is to use these celebrities to recruit new members or at least make the image of Scientology acceptable in society." "They treat their celebrity members better than ordinary members," Dr. Kent says. He cites numerous interviews he has done with former members as well as allegations that ordinary members have at times been used as unpaid labour for stars. Celebrities, Press

October 17, 1993 The Church and the Magazines Premiere magazine ran an 8,700-word piece examining the growing influence of Scientology in the entertainment industry.

The article also goes into Scientology's history of threatening to sue people and businesses it views as adversaries. There are positive statements from believers too, though they figure less frequently. Celebrities, Press, Scientology and Society
