Ex-Scientologist Leah Remini has said in she believes Tom Cruise thinks she is ‘literally the devil’.
In a recent interview with Larry King, the actress 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’.
Leah, who grew up as a Scientologist but left the controversial church in 2013, was on the show to promote her docuseries Scientology and The Aftermath.
‘Tom is very well aware of what is Scientology,’ the former King of Queens star continued.
‘He is very aware that it’s an organization that is defrauding people out of their lives. But in his heart, I believe he believes it.’
‘Tom is a fully dedicated and loyal Scientologist, absolutely,’ she continued, but said he had been ‘lied to.’
She added: ‘I could say that about myself at that 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.’
Leah joined the church at just nine years old but started questioning the religion when she attended Tom and Katie Holmes’ wedding in 2006 and was berated for daring to ask why the wife of Scientology leader, David Miscavige was not in attendance.
