Leah Remini is speaking out against Tom Cruise, who has been accused of intimidating his co-stars.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Remini blasted Cruise, a member of the Church of Scientology, for failing to live up to his "good guy" image. She also praised Thandie Newton for revealing how "scared" she was working with the actor on the set of "Mission: Impossible 2."

"That takes huge balls to do what she did, and if more people speak out in that way, and be brave enough to do so, I think we might get somewhere," Remini said of Newton, who admitted in a recent interview with Vulture that Cruise "scared" her.

"Tom has gotten away with being this 'nice guy,'" Remini said, "because that’s what Scientology policy says – to create good PR in the world and make those ‘good actions’ known. But if you actually look at his actions, they’re not consistent."

The "Kings of Queens" star, who followed the religion from age nine to 42, said she was reprimanded by the Church for questioning Cruise's behavior and wondering why he was the "poster child" for Scientology.

"He can’t keep a f---in’ marriage together, he’s jumping on couches, he’s acting like he knows anything about postpartum," she said.

"I learned pretty quickly that that’s not something you should be doing, because Tom Cruise is considered a messiah in Scientology," Remini continued. "This is a man who has not even seen his own daughter in years. That this guy can be running around and having people think he’s this super-nice guy, I don’t get it. But that’s the Hollywood bulls--- game people play."

Remini left the church of Scientology in 2013 and later developed the A&E series as a platform for herself and other former Scientologists to discuss their experiences. Since premiering in November 2016, "Scientology and the Aftermath" has featured former high-ranking people within the organization that have shared stories that paint a picture of shady business dealings and alleged abuse within the ranks.
