Laura Prepon NOT Reconsidering “Orange Is The New Black” Lesbian Role Because Of Scientology, Despite Report
Laura Prepon is not having second thoughts about playing a lesbian on “Orange is the New Black” because of her Scientology beliefs, despite a fabricated tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s simply false.
Prepon plays a lesbian inmate on the hit Netflix show, but according to OK!, the actress’ ties to Scientology have her reconsidering the portrayal of a gay character. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Scientologists aren’t fond of the gay lifestyle.” The supposed “insider” adds, “Laura has nothing against gay people personally, but she takes her religion seriously.”
The magazine’s phony “source” goes on to allege that Prepon is attempting to sabotage her gig by pressuring producers to increase her salary. “She’s asked for so much money, it’s obvious she wants to shop herself out of the job,” the ill-informed “insider” claims.
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Prepon, who assures us that there’s “no truth” to the allegations that her religious beliefs are in any way affecting her career decisions. In fact, Prepon revealed in a recent interview that Scientology has actually improved her acting skills, specifically in regards to her role on “Orange is the New Black.”
Furthermore, Prepon recently posted numerous Instagram posts from the set of the Netflix show’s fourth season, expressing her excitement to be back filming. Regardless, Gossip Cop hears her Scientology beliefs bear no effect on Prepon’s feelings about playing a lesbian on “Orange is the New Black.” We’re told the story is completely bogus.
