In an interview with Texas’ culture blog The Dentonite, Jason Lee confirmed his exit from the church to put an end to rumours that he and his wife were planning to open a Scientology centre in the local town.

“If Ceren and I had an idea for a business, it certainly wouldn't happen at the cost of someone else's,” he began.

“And being that we don't practice Scientology, and that we aren't particularly interested in opening religious centres in general, we have no plans to open a Scientology centre.”

The actor continued: “Quite a few rumours about me/us floating around but none of it's true. We're not here to buy up or change or take over Denton, put some kind of personal stamp on it."“We're just here like anyone else who wants to be a part of Denton's very cool creative community, and to be involved and perhaps help where we can.”

Jason's marriage to Ceren almost ended last year, allegedly due to his strong association with the church.

However it appears the two are now back together, and living with their children in Texas.

Jason was previously wed to Carmen Llywelyn between 1995 and 2001.

Last year Carmen wrote a scathing article about her experiences with Scientology for Gawker.com - blaming it for their split.

“Jason had been a Scientologist for about five years when we met,” she wrote.

“I was very much in love with the guy and wanted our marriage to work. I did what I thought was right.”

“But I made the mistake of immersing myself completely in his world. I did what so many other people who join Scientology do: I lost all sense of individual identity in the name of the cult.”

Speaking about her marriage’s demise, she said: “Eventually, I started to feel like he was forcing Scientology on me, past the point where I didn’t want to go any further."

“He would never stop talking about it."

“It became a source of contention and I realised that unless I accepted Scientology the way he did and the way he wanted me to, we would most likely cease to know each another.”
