Leah Remini talks to '20/20' about Tom Cruise, Scientology

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress Leah Remini is talking about Scientology and Tom Cruise in a new interview with ABC's "20/20."

She says in a clip released Monday that "being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself." The interview is scheduled to air Friday at 10 p.m. EDT.

Remini was raised as a Scientologist but left the church two years ago. Her memoir, "Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology," is set for release next month.

Representatives for Cruise and the Church of Scientology did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
