On Saturday, hundreds of people, including friends, family and co-stars, said goodbye to actor David Carradine during a private funeral service held at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.
But in a new exclusive interview only with RadarOnline.com, Carradine’s third ex-wife, Gail Jensen, reveals the actor’s connection to the controversial church of Scientology, and how his “unique” lifestyle may have been too much for the teetotalling organization.
Jensen told RadarOnline.com that the church couldn’t handle David’s “rebellion.” “He loved to smoke, drink and was always late. They told him ‘you just don’t fit with our traditions.’”
Carradine’s desire to be accepted by Scientology may have been for sentimental reasons. The actor was baptized as an Episcopalian, but his mother was a strict Christian Scientist. According to Jensen, Carradine had several scientologist friends and attributed his role in Kill Bill to meeting director Quentin Tarantino at the Scientology Celebrity Center in Hollywood.
