This Is Why Elizabeth Moss Left the Room When Leah Remini Won an Award

By now most people know that former “King of Queens” actress Leah Remini is against Scientology. She is one of the most public figures to be against the Church.

Remini was a former member for over three decades, but left the Church and has been on a crusade to show the world its evil doings. She is getting ready for the second season of a show she has on A&E called “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.” The show documents the stories of ex-Scientologists who have been cut off by their families after leaving the church.

There’s one Scientology member, who is also an actress, that is not approving of what Remini is doing and that’s Elisabeth Moss, star of “Handmaid’s Tale.” Moss has been a member of the Church since birth.

When Leah Remini won a Television Critics Association award for her A&E docuseries, Scientology and The Aftermath, Moss left the room when Remini gave her acceptance speech.

Remini told The Hollywood Reporter, “Elisabeth Moss believes that she can’t talk to me. There’s a thing in Scientology called ‘acceptable truth.’ It means you only say what’s acceptable to the public. But she believes that I’m an antisocial personality — because I’ve spoken out against Scientology. So she isn’t allowed to talk to me. And me knowing that, I wouldn’t put her in the awkward position.”
