She made the revelation during an interview with People magazine.

“I’m no longer practicing Scientology. I’ve always been very open-minded, even since I was a child. I was raised Catholic and Jewish. I’ve prayed in churches, meditated in temples. I’ve studied Chinese meridian theory. I haven’t practiced Scientology in close to five years and it’s no longer part of my life,” the “Orange Is the New Black” and “That ‘70s Show” actor said in the interview.

She said she made many changes when she became a mother.

“As a brand-new mother, I was reflecting so much on my own upbringing and the way I was mothered. I was forced to look at a lot of things in my life that I wasn’t looking at before,” she shared with People.

Prepon now practices meditation with her husband Ben Foster.

“We meditate daily and I’m really liking it,” she said. “Because it’s something that helps me to hear my own voice and it’s something we can do together.”
