Leah Remini Spotted With Scientology Book: ‘It’s A Statement,’ Says Author
Only now her actions speak louder than words.
Perhaps best known as Tom Cruise’s Scientology auditor, Headley is a former high ranking church official who served alongside it's leader David Miscavige for 15 years at the organization’s international headquarters. But he left the church in 2005.
“For her to read it, that’s really cool. But for her to be photographed with and bring it out to a rehearsal, it’s a statement,” Headley told Celebuzz.
“That’s a big deal to someone who has left.
“You can tell that not only does she not approve of what’s going on in the organization, but now she wants to find out what’s really going on.”
Headley, who wouldn’t comment on when he last spoke with Remini, says didn’t know she had taken a keen interest in his writings, but isn't surprised.
“There are a lot of people in Scientology who are questioning it because they see things and hear something, but they’re not allowed to question anything because it’s all filtered propaganda," he added.
“When they leave and get out, they read and go out and buy books from people who do know what happened.
“I’ve spoken to hundreds of people who have left Scientology, I usually end of talking to them after they get the book.
“It’s sort of expected at this point because they know that stuff is going on because they’ve heard and seen it on the internet, but they weren’t allowed to look.”
The 43-year-old actress broke away from the controversial religion two months ago after over 30 years because she reportedly dared to ask about the whereabouts of Miscavige’s wife when she was a no-show at the Cruise's 2006 nuptials to Katie Holmes. And as a result of her inquiry, was allegedly subjected to years of “interrogations” and “thought modification.”
“I went to hundreds of meetings with David Miscavige and the book details how he works and micromanages every detail. That’s the thing Scientologists have no idea what’s going on," added Headley.
“It’s sort of appropriate for her [Leah] -- out of all the books this is the one that details David Miscaviage more than anything.”
