Actress Leah Remini is finally speaking out about her exit from the Church of Scientology.
The King of Queens star opened up, somewhat, to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about the reasons why she left the church.
The 43-year-old actress spoke slowly about the topic and didn’t give many in-depth answers, but when she left the faith she told People: “No one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to.”
The break came when it was reported that Remini had to undergo “interrogations” and “thought modification” because the church allegedly bars members from questioning leaders’ management. She had allegedly asked about the whereabouts of Shelly Miscavige, church leader David Miscavige’s wife, at the 2006 wedding of Tom Cruise to Katie Holmes. Among other reasons she supposedly left the church was her disagreement with policies that allegedly force members to “disconnect” from family members deemed “suppressive persons” if they choose to leave the church.
