Kirstie Alley doesn't care what the Scientology haters have to say because she claims the controversial religion saved her life.
The world's hottest 61-year-old admits she thought the religion was a scam like 99 percent of the population until it helped her kick a cocaine addiction she claimed was life threatening. She said that after reading a book by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, "I thought either (Scientology) is the world's biggest scam, or I thought this is how I am going to get rid of this hideous compulsion," according to Daily Mail.
Kirstie said her drug use wasn't excessive in terms of the amount, but her body reacted poorly to it every time and she thought she was going to die from it. "I thought I was going to overdose almost every time," she said. "I would snort the coke, then I would sit there. I'd take my pulse (thinking), 'I'm dying, I'm dying, I'm dying.' Who would keep doing it?"
Naturally, people gain a little weight after kicking a cocaine habit and Kirstie's yo-yo frame has been the subject of much scrutiny over the years. She seems to have finally cracked the code though and is looking pretty damn amazing this season on Dancing With the Stars. Unfortunately, other celebrity scientologists have not been so lucky with kicking their addictions. Former Sons of Anarchy star Johnny Lewis struggled with drug issues and bounced around prison and rehab before his death last September.
