Cartwright's gift--almost two times her annual salary from The Simpsons--puts her at the top of a list of celebrity benefactors who have handed over their hard-earned cash to the Church of Scientology. She gave even more than Tom Cruise--who is reported to be the controversial religion's second-in-command--who has donated $5 million in the last four years.
According to Impact magazine, Kirstie Alley gave $5 million last year and has picked up the Diamond Meritorious Award.
The prizes were handed out at a top secret ceremony in Florida last summer, according to the publication.
