Leah Remini isn’t holding back details when it comes to her criticism of Scientology, the “King of Queens” star’s former religion.

The actress-turned-author also isn’t shy about dinging the church’s star congregant, Tom Cruise.

“At first it’s very effusive, it’s very loving — you get the laser in on you and you’re the most important thing that ever happened,” Remini recalled of her initial meeting with Cruise during a recent ABC News interview.

As one might expect from how this all shook out, that feeling didn’t last very long.

During her time at the church — which spanned three decades — Remini was once invited over to Cruise’s house to teach him salsa dancing. Two high-ranking Scientology officials were also there when they arrived — as was Cruise’s new girlfriend at the time, Katie Holmes.

“He was, like, forcibly kissing Katie,” Remini remembered in an interview clip unveiled Friday on “Good Morning America.”

“I said, ‘Hey, get a friggin’ room.'”

“I was written up for that,” she admitted, referring to be tattled on in what Scientology calls a “Knowledge Report.”

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

A representative for Holmes issued a statement on Friday: “I regret having upset Leah in the past and wish her only the best in the future.”

The tell-all conversation airs in its entirety tonight on “20/20.” Remini is making the rounds promoting her new book, “Troublemaker.”
