Here's What Leah Remini Had to Say about Tom Cruise Amid His Involvement in the Church of Scientology
Leah Remini has once again bared her mind about the Church of Scientology and she has a lot to say about Tom Cruise’s longtime involvement with the organization.
Leah Remini has continued to share her views about the Church of Scientology, and this time, she has chosen to focus on Tom Cruise’s association with it.
The actress, author, and activist, recently sent a statement to Us Weekly that saw her asking “people to start waking up to the real facts here.” While claiming that she believed that the actor could sometimes be a “decent and kindhearted person," Leah said that:
”He has morphed himself into David Miscavige [leader of Scientology] and is completely dedicated to Scientology’s mission to ‘clear’ planet Earth.”
Following Leah’s many claims and allegations, the [Church of Scientology] has since released a statement that mostly asked the activist to move on with her life and find another source to blame her problems on.
Explaining Tom’s role in the church, Inquisitr noted that the actor has grown to become a Scientologist favorite since he first connected with the organization in 1990.
The “Edge of Tomorrow” star joined the movement after his then-wife, Mimi Rogers, who used to be a member, introduced him to their ways. Not only did Tom quickly climb up the chain of command, but he also allegedly became close to the religion’s leader, David Miscavige.
The duo shares such a tight bond that David earned the role of best man at Tom’s 2016 wedding to actress, Katie Holmes. Leah even attended the sweet ceremony, which was held in Italy, with her spouse, Angelo Pagan.
That, however, didn’t stop her from applauding Thandie Newton for bravely opening up about the challenges she faced while working on a project with “a really stressed” Tom.
Daily Mail divulged that Thandie had previously acknowledged that she had become “so scared of Tom” as he “tries super hard to be a nice person."
Amid Leah’s outcry against the Church of Scientology, Page Six recalled that the actress is an ex-Scientologist whose mother joined the religion when she (Leah) was just nine years old. The “Kevin Can Wait” actress eventually turned her back on the movement when she found lapses in David’s “managing style.”
