Jennifer Lopez has revealed her father is a Scientologist.The Latino actress-and-singer has said that although she is a Catholic she thinks it a shame that Scientology has such a negative public perception. J.Lo said in an interview with US TV channel NBC 6: "My dad has been a Scientologist for 20 years. 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 it Scientology in that way."'The Wedding Planner' star attended Tom Cruise and Katie Homes' Scientology wedding in Italy last year, and defended the ceremony which had received some public criticism. She said: "It was a great celebration of their love. It was good. It was beautiful."Earlier this month, the 37-year-old actress attended the Golden Globe Awards with her husband Marc Anthony, despite not being involved in any of the films nominated, or being asked to present a prize. J.Lo, who wore a glamorous couture gown to the ceremony, is adamant she went to the event for her own enjoyment and not just to parade around as a fashion icon. She said: "I just went for my own pleasure. Of course I'm aware people will see my dress. As long as I feel good in it, that' s the most important thing."
