AceShowbiz - Leah Remini continues her crusade against the Church of Scientology and she held nothing back when talking about Tom Cruise. During a Reddit AMA on Tuesday, August 15, the actress was asked if the "Top Gun" star is a good person.
"No! Just going to get straight to it, no!" she quickly responded. "There is a public persona of the guy who looks at you directly in the eye and shakes your hand and hugs you and is an attentive person to you and there's the person behind the mask who is a completely different person."
She went on explaining, "Someone could say we all have that - what we are to the public and who we are behind the scenes, but the people who are around Tom and work for Tom, not even people who are Scientologists, they will say he is diaboloical [sic]."
The former "The King of Queens" star added that some people who worked with her might call her an "a**hole," but it's a different story for the "Top Gun" actor. "He's very similar to David Miscavige, they could be twins," she said, referencing the leader of the Church of Scientology.
Leah participated in the Reddit AMA to promote the upcoming second season of her docuseries, "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath". The 47-year-old actress left the church in 2013 after being a part of it since she was a young child. She has since made it her mission to reveal the dark secrets of the church.
In response to Leah's claims, the Church of Scientology told Us Weekly in a statement, "Leah Remini has been obsessed with the leader of the Scientology religion and with Mr. Cruise for years, ever since she made a scene at Mr. Cruise's wedding when she couldn't get the seat she wanted. Remini is only commenting on these two prominent individuals to generate media coverage for herself and her hate campaign. Remini is bent on inciting hate and bigotry against a worldwide religion and its parishioners and she will stop at nothing to grab attention."
