Leah Remini did an interview that left jaws on the floor due to the number of disturbing revelations about Hollywood megastar Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology.
Remi was part of the controversial religion for over 30 years and since leaving in 2013, she has become the most vocal critic of the infamous church.
The author of Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood confirmed that she is not giving up her fight against the movement created by L. Ron Hubbard.
In a recent interview, the former devout Scientologist praised Thandie Newton, who surprised the world by revealing that she was “scared” of Cruise while filming Mission: Impossible 2.
Remi applauded the British star for speaking about her traumatic experience.
She told Daily Beast the following about the situation: “That takes huge balls to do what she did, and if more people speak out in that way, and be brave enough to do so, I think we might get somewhere.”
Remini, who is the host of the new podcast, Scientology: Fair Game, claimed that Cruise, the nice man, is an image being pushed by a giant PR machine, but in real life, he is very different.
Remini, who became a member of the Church of Scientology at the age of nine, revealed: “Tom has gotten away with being this ‘nice guy,’ because that’s what Scientology policy says—to create good PR in the world and make those ‘good actions’ known. But if you actually look at his actions, they’re not consistent.”
The King of Queens actress also spoke about Cruise’s failed marriage to Katie Holmes.
Remi also confirmed the long rumor that Cruise had not seen his daughter, Suri Cruise, since splitting from Holmes.
Remi dropped this bombshell: “He can’t keep a f–kin’ marriage together, he’s jumping on couches, he’s acting like he knows anything about postpartum. I learned pretty quickly that that’s not something you should be doing, because Tom Cruise is considered a messiah in Scientology.”
She went on to make this shocking revelation: “This is a man who has not even seen his own daughter in years. That this guy can be running around and having people think he’s this super-nice guy, I don’t get it. But that’s the Hollywood-bulls–t game people play.”
According to Remi, Hollywood big heads were very complicit and let Cruise have his way because they feared him when he was powerful, but the times have changed, and she is happy to be among those people who contributed to that change.
