Leah Remini has reached out to HBO filmmakers following the network’s airing of Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief. The former King of Queens star wanted to thank HBO for broadcasting the powerful documentary.
It was back in 2013 that Leah Remini made a high-profile exit from the Church of Scientology, calling the church’s leader David Miscavige out on keeping secrets from its members. She also filed a missing persons report on Shelly Miscavige, the leader’s wife. She hasn’t been seen in public since 2007.
Leah Remini thanked all involved with Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief via Twitter.
Thank you to the brave who did something about it. And to those who didn't have a voice, you do now. #GoingClear

It was about a year ago when Leah Remini spoke out about her reasons for having left the Church of Scientology.
“They say they’re loving, caring, non-judgmental people, but secretly, they were judging the world for not believing what they believed. To me, that is not a spiritual person. That’s a judgmental person, and that is the person that I was. I was a hypocrite, and the worst thing you can be in this world is a hypocrite,” she said.
She added that “everything the Church taught me was a lie.”
After a representative of the Church of Scientology issued a statement about Leah Remini, calling her a “self-absorbed woman” as well as a woman “with an insatiable craving for attention,” the Leah Remini: It’s All Relative star got the last word.
“I don’t want to be known as this bitter ex-Scientologist. I’m not trying to bash anybody, and I’m not trying to be controversial. I just want people to know the truth,” she said.
Leah Remini no doubt believes that these HBO filmmakers uncovered the truth in Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.
