According to a 2.14 New Yorker profile called “The Apostate,” director Paul Haggis got a surprise when he forwarded his August 2009 Scientology resignation letter to “more than twenty” Scientologist friends, including Anne Archer, John Travolta and Sky Dayton, the founder of EarthLink. “I felt if I sent it to my friends they’d be as horrified as I was, and they’d ask questions as well,” Haggis says. “That turned out to be largely not the case. They were horrified that I’d send a letter like that.”
