Speaking with ITV News while promoting his latest action film Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Cruise responded to a reporter question about a recent documentary that slammed Scientology by gushing about his religion.

“It’s something that has helped me incredibly in my life; I’ve been a Scientologist for over 30 years,” the actor replied. “It’s something, you know, without it, I wouldn’t be where I am. So it’s a beautiful religion. I’m incredibly proud.” Watch below.
