Leah Remini Says Scientology Views Tom Cruise Critics as ‘Evil’

“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself… You are evil,” actress tells told ABC’s Dan Harris in new “20/20” promo

Leah Remini made waves recently as another high-profile defector from the Church of Scientology, and now she’s getting ready to share more details in a new interview.

In a new ABC News promo for her sit-down interview on “20/20,” the former “King of Queens” star discussed how Tom Cruise, the church’s most famous member, was a factor in her leaving.

“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself… You are evil,” Remini told ABC’s Dan Harris.

The “King of Queens” actress also delved into how she got caught up in Scientology and the methods they used to isolate members from the rest of the world.

“The decision to leave is you are giving up everything you have ever known and everything you have worked for your whole life,” she said. “People need to understand, this has been my whole life, and I want them to understand how this happens… As time goes on, you start to lose touch with the real world. The mindset becomes ‘us against them.'”

The full interview with Remini will air Friday, Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
