Leah Rem­ini had to fake her per­son­al­ity as a Scien­tol­o­gist

HT City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tor Leah Rem­ini has said that she never pre­sented an “au­then­tic” ver­sion of her­self to peo­ple when she was a Scien­tol­o­gist be­cause she had to try and re­cruit them to the re­li­gion. Speak­ing to ac­tor Jada Pin­kett Smith on an up­com­ing episode of Red Ta­ble Talk, she said, “Re­gard­less of what was be­ing pre­sented to you, from me as a friend, you were see­ing a side of me that was not 100% au­then­tic, be­cause my job was to al­ways be a per­fect per­son in front of you, or any celebrity, to solely get you into Scien­tol­ogy, fully in­doc­tri­nated, fully on board and de­sert­ing any other be­liefs.”

Rem­ini’s ap­pear­ance on the show came af­ter she and Pin­kett Smith ended a feud. It had be­gun when Rem­ini, 48, said that Pin­kett Smith, 47, was a Scien­tol­o­gist, re­ports fe­male­first.co.uk.

Pin­kett Smith said that she was grate­ful that the “old school” ac­tor was the big­ger per­son and “reached out” to re­solve their dif­fer­ences.

“It was re­ally beau­ti­ful and she reached out to me. She was much more big­ger than me in that way (sic). It was nice to re­con­nect and re­lease our­selves from all that non­sense that doesn’t mat­ter...

“What was re­ally emo­tional about it was re­al­is­ing that there was two bro­ken lit­tle girls in us that were aban­doned by their fa­thers and turned into fight­ers who clashed,” she said.
