While promoting her new reality series Scientology and the Aftermath, Leah Remini just upped her stunt queen game to the god damn heavens. Literally.

Remini did a Reddit AMA called "I am Leah Remini, Ask Me Anything about Scientology," and the actress-warrior kept it refreshingly blunt when confirming one of the most "Yeah, no shit" questions regarding Mr. Cruise: does the Church of Scientology consider Tom Cruise a god?

Honestly, I was more shattered by the revelation that Tom Cruise had Leah and her husband teach him and Katie Holmes how to salsa dance in his living room, but this is pretty exquisite, too.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Remini also admitted that when she was still a member of the church, Tom had once pressured her to use her (King of Queens) influence at CBS to call the network head Leslie Moonves, and get a 60 Minutes report about Scientology pulled.

Yep. So I called Les Moonves, even though I was really uncomfortable with it. And he said, "Listen — you're not the only one who has called me about this and I have no right to interject my opinion of what I like or don't like with the news organization of CBS and I will absolutely not engage this conversation. I'll tell you or anyone else who calls me." He said, "I don't give a shit if it's you, if it's Tom Cruise, if it's Jenna Elfman, you're all going to get the same story from me." And I said, "OK." And then I called them back and said, "Hey, I tried."


Fight on, Leah.
