Leah Remini Says Tom Cruise Could 'Single-Handedly' End Scientology

In an appearance on HBO's 'Real Time With Bill Maher', Leah Remini asserted that Tom Cruise could "end" Scientology if he wanted to.

"Tom Cruise could end this single-handedly," said Maher.

"He could end this. Correct," agreed Remini. "And because they are saying he single-handedly is clearing the planet, is changing the planet, so most Scientologists believe."

"Clearing the planet? He couldn't even make Jack Reacher a hit," joked Maher.

"Scientologists believe that if he didn't make it a hit it was because there were suppressive, evil people working against him, because he's winning in life and clearing the planet," she explained.

When Maher asked if rules were bent for Cruise, Remini replied: "Now, I don't want you to get the idea that it's not, that certain policies are not being bent for him because they are and that is the truth, and that was part of the hypocrisy."

The former 'King of Queens' star said it isn't always easy to realize you're being brainwashed.

"I didn't realize that, because we are required to study two-and-a-half hours a day, like, minimum, we are looking up the words, we are being checked out on the policies of Scientology... Scientologists aren't allowed to look or listen to people who are critics of Scientology."

"I watched it because I was a troublemaker, apparently, always," she said of Maher's 2008 documentary 'Religulous'. "What you were revealing in your documentary, I wasn't even at that level yet."

"So you seemed a little crazy to me, because I didn't know what you were saying was true, so I was, like, 'That shit is crazy.'"

"When the history of Scientology is finally written, it's going to show that fate chose you to come in, like in Act Five," he told her. "You're like Reagan with, 'Tear down that wall!'"
