Actress, author, and activist Leah Remini is accusing Tom Cruise of morphing into controversial Scientology leader David Miscavige.
The 50-year-old The King of Queens star told US Weekly, “I think it’s time for people to start waking up to the real facts here. Tom has for years manipulated his image to be the good guy. Although I believe there was a time when Tom was a decent and kindhearted person, he has morphed himself into David Miscavige and is completely dedicated to Scientology’s mission to ‘clear’ planet Earth — which means making 80 percent of the world’s population into Scientologists.”
Remini was raised as a Scientologist since the age of 9 after her mother joined the organization. She and her husband Angelo Pagan left with their daughter Sofia Bella Pagan in November 2016 after questioning the managing style of Miscavige.
Two years later she published a memoir Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. and also had a documentary series on A&E, entitled Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. She is currently the co-hosts of the podcast Scientology: Fair Game with Mike Rinder.
Recently Leah Remini also praised actress Thandie Newton after she spoke out about being “scared” of Cruise while filming Mission: Impossible 2 in 1999.
Remini told Daily Beast, “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.”
