Leah Remini Tom Cruise Scientology 20/20 Interview
Tom Cruise has been getting the side-eye since he went bat sh*t crazy and famously hopped on Oprah’s couch in 2005. And that side-eye definitely won’t be going anywhere after actress Leah Remini spilled the tea on Tom and that crazy white people “religion” — Scientology.
In her 20/20 sit-down interview which aired Friday, Leah revealed she was just a child when she signed a “billion year contract” to swear allegiance to the church. She also revealed living the “roach-infested” struggle while living at the church’s headquarters.
During her time at Sea Org, Remini admitted in the interview that “you live in roach-infested dorms with other children” and “could go from working in a laundry room to working industrial sanders.” Though she was “learning how to learn Scientology” and the food “didn’t taste like food and you had to get it at a certain time,” she considered the church her home.
But during her one-year involvement at Sea Org, Remini and her then-boyfriend partook in physical actions the church deemed inappropriate. “I allowed my boyfriend at the time … to go like this over my shirt,” she said while lighting touching her breast over her shirt. Remini remarked the action was a church violation and she was threatened to be put in the rehabilitation project force. “When you have screwed up royally in the Sea Org, it’s basically to reform you. You have to wear black, you have to run everywhere you go, you have to call everyone sir. It’s pretty severe punishment for an adult, not to mention a child.” Remini said.
Hit the flip for what she says about Tom Cruise’s wacky behavior, which included “forcibly kissing” Katie Holmes and trying desperately to recruit Jennifer Lopez.
