Bart Simpson gave $10 million to Scientology

Tbdnancycartwright013108 If you think Tom Cruise is the biggest supporter of Scientology, you’ll be surprised to learn that Bart Simpson has that market cornered.

PageSix.com says 50-year-old Nancy Cartwright, who has voiced the cartoon character for eleventy billion years, donated $10 million to the church last year, twice as much as Cruise, who gave $2.5 million in 2004 and another $2.5 million two years later.

Kirstie Alley matched that ante, but Ocala residents John Travolta and Kelly Preston could apparently only manage $1 million each. Hey, jet fuel is expensive these days. Throwing in a mere $50k was Priscilla Presley.

Wondering how Cartwright managed that $10 million sum? Well, she reportedly makes $250k per episode of The Simpsons, and with 22 episodes that equals a yearly salary of $5.5 million. She must have been saving her pennies.
