Leah Remini has confirmed that she's left the Church of Scientlogy, and with that she joins a growing list of celebrities who have said goodbye to the religion created by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.
Neither has commented on the rumors, and Kidman told The Hollywood Reporter, "I've chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology. I have two children [adopted with Cruise] who are Scientologists -- Connor  and Isabella  -- and I utterly respect their beliefs."
Meanwhile, actress Nazanin Boniadi -- the woman who was allegedly handpicked by the church to be Cruise's girlfriend from November until January 2005 before running afoul of the religion's leader David Miscavage -- also left the church. Vanity Fair claims Boniadi's decision to leave the church came after she was punished for her insubordination by having to scrub toilets with a toothbrush, clean bathroom tiles with acid and dig ditches in the middle of the night, and later was sent out to hawk Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics on street corners.Director Paul Haggis famously said goodbye to the church and Xenu -- the dictator of the "Galactic Confederacy," who according to the religion sent billions of frozen souls on spaceships from his overpopulated planet to the bases of volcanoes on Earth, which later were scattered into human bodies, giving them emotional issues -- in 2009 with a scathing public letter.
"I did some Scientology courses about 30 years ago. The only thing that bothers me about people knowing that is that it is not my complete wacko resume. It's just one aspect!" he told Access Hollywood, explaining that he stopped because he was just interested in exploring and was "flitting from thing to thing."
"Scientology is destructive and a rip-off," the actor said in a video. "It's very, very dangerous for your spiritual, psychological, mental, emotional health and evolution. I think it stunts your evolution. If Scientology is real, then something's f**ked up."
"I was slowly starting to self-destruct, and I didn't know where that was coming from. I started to uncover the main person who was really close to me for years, and then it was a domino effect. I was devastated," she said, adding, "I got bad advice. I was insulated with no grip on reality. They were taking my soul, my money, my everything."
Witchy thinks this is so fatiquing how some people can be so silly .
A goofy cult started by a science fiction writer.
I'm glad that these people saw the light and got the heck out of that cult. I think that cults are for those people who can't manage their own lives.
Scientology and "Hollywood," are made for each other. They both exist to separate people from their money, using fantasy as the tool of choice.
Not sure what they saw in Sceintology in the first place - a "religion" that demands huge financial donations and was invented by a second-rate science fiction writer - yup, it just screams legitimicy
