Leah Remini Slams Tom Cruise, Claims He 'Manipulated His Image to Be the Good Guy'

Leah Remini is calling out Tom Cruise.

“I think it’s time for people to start waking up to the real facts here. Tom has for years manipulated his image to be the good guy,” Leah told Us Weekly. “Although I believe there was a time when Tom was a decent and kindhearted person, he has morphed himself into David Miscavige [leader of Scientology] and is completely dedicated to Scientology’s mission to ‘clear’ planet Earth — which means making 80 percent of the world’s population into Scientologists.”

If you don’t know, Leah was a Scientologist for most of her life until 2013 when she left the religion. Tom is one of Scientology’s biggest celebrity participants.

Leah also made claims about Tom‘s marriage to Nicole Kidman.

“[Senior Vice President at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre, Tommy Davis] … used confidential Scientology counseling sessions to bring a wedge between Tom and his wife Nicole because Nicole didn’t want to do Scientology anymore,” Leah added. “And David Miscavige, through Marty Rathbun, got rid of Nicole to get Tom closer to Scientology.”

Tom has for years used his Church to torture his employees by sending them in for interrogations at their expense, causing a woman I know to go bankrupt simply because the hours she worked for Tom made it impossible for her to raise her family,” she added. “She was interrogated and punished by her church for years, causing her to lose her home. These are some of the things Tom has done that never get talked about, and I think it’s time to change that.”

This isn’t the first time Leah has called out Tom.

Leah Remini Reacts to Thandie Newton's 'Nightmare' Experience Working With Tom Cruise

Leah Remini is reacting to Thandie Newton‘s candid story about working with Tom Cruise, and not exactly loving the experience.

The Scientology and the Aftermath host spoke to The Daily Beast about her dissatisfaction with Tom, as well as how she felt seeing Thandie speak her mind.

If you didn’t know, Thandie said she was “scared” of Tom on the set of Mission: Impossible 2 and said the experience was a “nightmare,” claiming he handed out Scientology recruiting material as gifts to cast and crew.

“That takes huge balls to do what she did, and if more people speak out in that way, and be brave enough to do so, I think we might get somewhere. Tom has gotten away with being this ‘nice guy,’ because that’s what Scientology policy says — to create good PR in the world and make those ‘good actions’ known. But if you actually look at his actions, they’re not consistent,” Leah said.

She also said she was reprimanded after asking why Tom was “the poster child” for the organization, “because Tom Cruise is considered a messiah in Scientology,” and says he’s not “this super-nice guy” like people believe.

One other very interesting star made headlines after following Thandie Newton on social media right after she made those comments about Tom Cruise. Find out who…

Katie Holmes Follows Thandie Newton on Instagram After Those Tom Cruise Comments

People can’t help but take note of the most recent person who Katie Holmes followed on Instagram!

The 41-year-old actress just started following Westworld actress Thandie Newton on the social media app.

In a candid interview this week, Thandie talked about what it was like to work with Tom Cruise (Katie‘s ex-husband) on the movie Mission: Impossible II, which was released back in 2000.

“I was so scared of Tom. He was a very dominant individual. He tries super hard to be a nice person. But the pressure. He takes on a lot. And I think he has this sense that only he can do everything as best as it can be done,” Thandie said in the interview with Vulture.

Thandie Newton's Story About What It's Like Working with Tom Cruise Is Getting Attention

Thandie Newton worked with Tom Cruise years ago on the second Mission: Impossible film, which was released in 2000.

The Westworld star recently gave an interview with Vulture where she spoke about the experience, and many are talking about the story.

“I was so scared of Tom. He was a very dominant individual. He tries super hard to be a nice person. But the pressure. He takes on a lot. And I think he has this sense that only he can do everything as best as it can be done. There was one time, we were doing this night scene, there were so many extras with pyrotechnics and you name it, and it was a scene with him and me on the balcony. And I don’t think it was a very well-written scene. I get angry with him. We’re frustrated with each other. And we’re looking out over Spain. It wasn’t going well. And John Woo, bless him, wasn’t there. He was downstairs looking at everything on a monitor. And John had made a decision at the beginning of the movie, unbeknownst certainly to me, that he didn’t speak English. Which I think was very helpful to him, but it was extremely unhelpful to the rest of us. So this scene was happening, and Tom was not happy with what I was doing because I had the shittiest lines,” Thandie explained.

She added, “And he gets so frustrated with having to try and explain that he goes, ‘Let me just — let’s just go do it. Let’s just rehearse on-camera.’ So we rehearsed and they recorded it, and then he goes, ‘I’ll be you. You be me.’ So we filmed the entire scene with me being him — because, believe me, I knew the lines by then — and him playing me. And it was the most unhelpful … I can’t think of anything less revealing. It just pushed me further into a place of terror and insecurity. It was a real shame. And bless him. And I really do mean bless him, because he was trying his damnedest.”

Thandie continued, “I remember at the beginning of the night, seeing this slight red mark on his nose, and by the end of the night, I kid you not — this is how his metabolism is so fierce — he had a big whitehead where that red dot was. It would take anyone else 48 hours to manifest a zit. I saw it growing, and it was like the zit was me, just getting bigger and bigger. I remember calling Jonathan Demme. I described the night to him: ‘A nightmare.’ As I was describing it, it was clear that I thought I was the big f*cking problem. And Jonathan was like, ‘Thandie, shame on you for not backing yourself.’ He was really sweet. And then Tom called and I thought, Oh, this is it. The apology. No, he was just like, ‘We’re going to reshoot this next week.’ I’m like, ‘Way brilliant.’ And the next time we shot it, I went in there and I just basically manifested all the — because I realized what he wanted. He just wanted this alpha bitch. And I did as best as I could. It’s not the best way to get the best work out of someone.”

Finally, Thandie said, “He wasn’t horrible. It was just — he was really stressed. I had the most extraordinary time, and you know who got me that role? Nicole Kidman. I’ve never actually outright asked her, but when your husband is like, ‘Who would you mind me pretending to shag for the next six months?’ You know what I mean? It’s kind of nice if you can pick together. Nicole was a huge advocate for me.”

This isn’t the first time Thandie has spoken about her experience working with Tom Cruise and she actually named him her worst on-screen kiss.

Would Simon Pegg Reunite With Tom Cruise To Film A Movie in Space?

Simon Pegg would maybe say yes to reuniting with Tom Cruise to film a movie in space.

Tom made headlines earlier this year when he teamed up with NASA and Elon Musk to pitch a movie that would be filmed in space.

NASA later confirmed that they have had talks with Tom about the movie.

NASA Administrator James Bridenstine revealed that the agency would be using the movie to inspire young kids to get into aerospace.

“If we can get Tom Cruise to inspire an elementary kid to join the Navy and be a pilot, why can’t we get Tom Cruise to inspire the next Elon Musk? That’s what we need,” he had said. “We need a new generation of many Elon Musks. That’s what we’re doing with our launch [and the film]. It’s all about the next generation.”

Now, Simon is opening up about rejoining his Mission Impossible co-star for it.

“I’d love to go into space, it would be amazing! But you know, you have to also think about your family and safety and stuff,” he shared with NME.

He added, “Tom never does anything recklessly and all of his stunts are meticulously designed, rehearsed and trained for. If he does it, it will be really safe. So, I don’t know, you never know.”
