Leah Remini: Katie Holmes Had 'Balls' to Leave Scientology

Leah Remini is opening up more about leaving Scientology and her rocky relationship with Katie Holmes.

The 45-year-old actress, who stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday (November 4) in New York City, praised the actress for leaving the church and ex-husband Tom Cruise.

“When she left and the manner that Katie left, I was like, ‘Wow, the girl has some balls, she has some chutzpah,’” Leah told E! News. “Looking back on it now, I wish we…had been closer because I had no idea. Imagine what I had gone through, but she was really, in, in it.”

Leah added, “I would never want to put Katie in a position where she felt she had to speak to me. Of course, I would speak to her, of course I would embrace her with an open heart.”

“All is forgiven, as far as I’m concerned, because again, it’s only because we are out that we are able to experience this type of grace towards each other because in my mentality, and the people that I knew, we were very militant about the way we conducted ourselves,” Leah said.

Leah Remini Says Katie Holmes Left Scientology to Protect Suri

Leah Remini is opening up about Katie Holmes and how she now understands why the actress had to leave Scientology.

The 45-year-old actress’ new interview on Good Morning America comes a couple of days after Katie released a statement apologizing for upsetting Leah in the past.

“At the time, I was fighting with her,” Leah said. “Now, I know really what she was going through.”

Katie left the church when she divorced her ex-husband Tom Cruise back in 2012 after six years of marriage. Leah left Scientology in 2013.

“I had no idea she was going through probably a lot more and looking back now and seeing her and Suri out there in the world, and her being able to be with her daughter and live her life, I’m touched by it because I know now she did what she did leaving because she had to protect her daughter,” Leah added.

Katie Holmes Will Discuss Scientology, Leah Remini on '20/20'

Katie Holmes is set to discuss Scientology and ex-Scientologist Leah Remini on a highly anticipated 20/20 special set to air tonight (October 30) on ABC.

The special will follow Leah‘s exit from the church and one of the topics that is discussed is how she got “written up” by the church for saying something negative about Katie and ex-husband Tom Cruise.

Leah was invited to Tom‘s home to teach him salsa dancing and when she showed up she was greeted by the actor, Katie, and two high-ranking Scientology officials.

“He was like, forcibly kissing Katie,” Leah said. “And I said, ‘Hey, get a freaking room.’ And uh, well. I was written up for that.”

“You can assume if you say something that is critical to the church, you will be written up,” she added. She also said that “being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself.”
