Star reveals her father shares beliefs with Tom Cruise

Jennifer Lopez has revealed that her father shares the same religion as Tom Cruise.

And the singer says that although she’s a Catholic she thinks it’s a shame that Scientology has such a warped image.

‘My dad has been a Scientologist for 20 years,’ she told US TV channel NBC6. ‘It’s weird people want to paint it in a negative way. I, myself, am Catholic. But it’s just sad that people would look at Scientology in that way.’

The 37-year-old attended Tom Cruise and Katie Homes’ Scientology wedding in Italy last year, and has defended the ceremony which received some public criticism.

‘It was a great celebration of their love,’ she said. ‘It was good. It was beautiful.’
