​'Crash' director Paul Haggis renounces Scientology over gay rights

PaulHaggi_Steve_16143273_600 Oscar-winning writer-director Paul Haggis finally quit Scientology after 32 years.

Maybe there's hope for Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

Long known for his humanitarian and civil liberties work, Haggis ("Million Dollar Baby," "Crash") was stunned when the San Diego branch of Scientology supported Proposition 8, the state amendment that took away marriage rights for California's gay couples.

Haggis is currently filming "The Next Three Days" with Russell Crowe, Liam Neeson and another former Scientologist , Jason Beghe.
