“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself. You are a person who is anti the aims and goals of Scientology. You are evil,” the actress explained
According to the Remini, she was written up in church “knowledge reports” after she complained about Cruise’s antics on the Today Show and Oprah.
“I’m saying, ‘I don’t think he’s becoming of a Scientologist, jumping on couches, and attacking Matt Lauer, and attacking Brooke Shields,’” Remini said. “Like… ‘What the hell is this guy doing?’ … we need to rein it in, we need to stop all this, and he just needs to be an actor.”
Remini recounts first meeting Cruise, saying he was very intense and loving.
