Jett Travolta, John Travolta's son, died in 2009 following a seizure.

Without Scientology, John Travolta says he wouldn't have made it out of that alive.

Jett Travolta's death left John Travolta in pieces.

"Oh, my god, I wouldn't have made it without the church's assistance," Travolta said of Jett Travolta's death. "Honestly."

John Travolta was not only helped through Jett Travolta's death, he has been helped, and has helped others, through many issues using Scientology.

Travolta hasn't seen the new documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, and he doesn't intend to.

He said, "I haven't experienced anything that the hearsay has [claimed], so why would I communicate something that wasn't true for me?"

He added, "It wouldn't make sense, nor would it for Tom Cruise, I imagine."

John Travolta said that while Scientology helped him through his son, Jett Travolta's, death, it has had many more benefits, as well.

He said, "[Scientology] has been nothing but brilliant for me. I've been so happy with my [Scientology] experience in the last 40 years that I really don't have anything to say that would shed light on [a documentary] so decidedly negative."

He added, "I've been brought through storms that were insurmountable, and [Scientology has] been so beautiful for me, that I can't even imagine attacking it."

John Travolta said that Scientology always works and he would never say anything negative about it.

He said, "I've helped so many people through hard times. Loss of children, loved ones, physical illnesses. Through many tough, tough life situations I've used the technology to support them and help them. It's always worked. So, why would I even approach a negative perspective?"

He added, "That would be a crime to me, personally, to do that."

John Travolta obviously leaned very much on Scientology after the death of Jett Travolta, and it must have helped, but just how much of this documentary is accurate? Some of the clips are a little startling. Have you seen Going Clear? What did you think?
