Leah Remini Wants Everyone to Know Tom Cruise is an Asshole

About fifteen years ago Leah Remini’s support for Scientology’s New York Rescue Worker’s Detoxification Program caused a rift between Janeane Garofalo and Sam Seder, then co-hosts of the Air America radio show The Majority Report that led to Garofalo’s departure from the show and the network. Luckily for everyone, Garofalo and Seder have made up and Leah Remini’s current opinions on Scientology are actually awesome.

For example, did you know Tom Cruise is a huge asshole? Remini knows, and she talked to The Daily Beast in the hopes of spreading a much better gospel.

When I was in Scientology I got in trouble in Scientology for saying, ‘Why is this guy the poster child for Scientology? He can’t keep a fuckin’ marriage together, he’s jumping on couches, he’s acting like he knows anything about postpartum.’ I learned pretty quickly that that’s not something you should be doing, because Tom Cruise is considered a messiah in Scientology. This is a man who has not even seen his own daughter in years. That this guy can be running around and having people think he’s this super-nice guy, I don’t get it. But that’s the Hollywood-bullshit game people play.

At one point Tom Cruise was the biggest little star in Hollywood, and everyone bent over to kiss his ass. Scientology hasn’t really caught up with the idea that he no longer is; dude’s never even been in a Marvel movie.

I think that [Newton] speaking out about what we all know Tom to be is not news to people who are or were Scientologists, who know the truth. Because he is not a nice person,” maintains Remini. “There was a time when Tom was a very nice person, but that was before he rededicated himself to David Miscavige [in the aughts], and there was a complete turn-around.

You ever think it’s weird that the leader of a church whose founder considered homosexuality “sexual perversion” spends some much time hanging out with a super handsome actor whose most common description in games of Celebrity is “gay dude who’s in the closet” and has basically made the whole religion’s purpose keeping that one dude happy? Even the term “rededicated” makes it sound like they’re gently touching their tips in the Scientology locker room.

That “gently touching tips” in the Scientology locker room line is sure funny. That’s how I have always viewed the Cruise/Miscavige relationship.
