46-year-old Leah Remini appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday to discuss her battle with Scientology and her upcoming A&E docu-series LEAH REMINI: SCIENTOLOGY AND THE AFTERMATH.
During her sit-down with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, 58, Remini says: “My story pales in comparison to what happened to other people, how people are bullied into silence. We don’t have $3 billion to protect ourselves, so what I have is, I’m an actress, and I’m able to speak, and I’m able to give a voice to people who might not have an Ellen to go on.”
She continues to talk about how people end up becoming overly engrossed with Scientology, saying: “There’s a lot of things that are good in Scientology, because I wouldn’t have been in it [otherwise]. And that’s the thing too, is lot of people trivialize this thing, like, ‘Oh, it’s Xenu and it’s a volcano and it’s jumping on couches and acting crazy.’ These people are victims. We’ve been victimized. We believed in something because it starts out very normal.” Watch Remini in action below:
