Leah says Tom Cruise thinks she is the devil

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 46-year-old ac­tress aban­doned the Church of Scien­tol­ogy in 2013 af­ter 30 years and has been work­ing on a new A&E do­cuseries 'Leah Rem­ini: Scien­tol­ogy and the Af­ter­math' in or­der to ex­pose it and says Tom and other mem­bers of the church see her as the enemy. In an in­ter­view for 'Larry King Now', she said: "He thinks I'm the devil. Tom and most Scien­tol­o­gists, all Scien­tol­o­gists, are taught to be­lieve that peo­ple like me are lit­er­ally the devil, that we mean them harm. "Tom is a ded­i­cated and loyal Scien­tol­o­gist. Tom is very well-aware of what is Scien­tol­ogy, truth­fully. He is very well-aware that it's an or­gan­i­sa­tion that is de­fraud­ing peo­ple out of their lives. But in his heart, I be­lieve he be­lieves it." When asked if she thinks Tom is "delu­sional", Leah said: "I could say that about my­self at the time. "I didn't want to look. I didn't want to be­lieve that what I've been in­volved in my whole life was a lie, that it was dam­ag­ing and hurt­ing peo­ple. Yeah, you can say I was delu­sional." Speak­ing pre­vi­ously about her rea­son for mak­ing the doc­u­men­tary, Leah said: "For too long, this multi-bil­lion-dol­lar or­gan­i­sa­tion bul­lied vic­tims and jour­nal­ists to pre­vent the truth be­ing told. It is my hope that we shed light on in­for­ma­tion that makes the world aware of what is re­ally go­ing on and en­cour­ages oth­ers to speak up. "Even though I had been a mem­ber of the church for a long time, I was stunned by some of the things I learned. There is a lot more to this story than any­one knows. And this se­ries is break­ing ground in bring­ing that in­for­ma­tion to light."
