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.
