National Enquirer - - FIRST TO KNOW -

SCIEN­TOL­OGY big­wigs are des­per­ate to re­cruit Jen­nifer Garner — be­cause church leader David Mis­cav­ige is ob­sessed with the brunette beauty! The A-lis­ter first caught the sci-fi cult leader’s eye when she starred in TV’s “Alias” in the early 2000s. One of Mis­cav­ige’s for­mer as­sis­tants, re­cent Scien­tol­ogy de­fec­tor Va­lerie Haney, said he be­came in­fat­u­ated with Jen and watched her show “all the time” — plant­ing the seeds of his plot to se­duce her into the church! In­sid­ers dished Mis­cav­ige was the driv­ing force be­hind then-sin­gle Tom Cruise ask­ing Jen for a date in 2004, with the “Top Gun” star leav­ing a creepy mes­sage on her an­swer­ing ma­chine ask­ing her if she “knew what free­dom was.” The cryp­tic comment, sources claimed, was an at­tempt to lure her into at­tend­ing one of the church’s no­to­ri­ous “girl­friend au­di­tions” — which is how some said he met third wife Katie Holmes. Mis­cav­ige’s cam­paign came to light as Jen ap­peared in the new sit­com “Camp­ing,” along­side hard­core Scien­tol­ogy stal­wart Juli­ette Lewis, who has praised the cult as a “self-help move­ment.”

Sources also snitched Jen was see­ing a ther­a­pist last sum­mer who used “Scien­tol­ogy-like tech­niques” — a po­ten­tial stealth in­tro­duc­tion to the re­li­gion. “Friends have warned her to be care­ful be­cause their re­cruit­ment tech­niques could be so sub­tle she won’t re­al­ize what’s go­ing on un­til it’s too late!” ex­plained an in­sider.

“Jen has been through a lot and is in the right frame of mind that the church could see her as vul­ner­a­ble and a prime target.” Newly sin­gle Jen and re­cov­er­ing boozer Ben Af­fleck fi­nally set­tled their long-sim­mer­ing divorce in Oc­to­ber, and the mom of three has a brand-new beau in busi­ness­man John Miller.

“She’s fi­nally in a good place, so the last thing her pals want is for her to get in over her head with an or­ga­ni­za­tion like Scien­tol­ogy!”
