Tom Cruise plays adult hide-and-seek & throws tantrums over cookie dough

Tom Cruise

Leah Remini is still plugging her revealing new book, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. She’s revealed so many things about the the deplorable treatment of children and adults within the religion cult, and she’s having a go at Tom Cruise too.

The last time we spoke of Leah, she detailed how Suri Cruise was left wailing for hours on the floor of a bathroom. This happened throughout a celebrity dinner, and neither Tom nor Katie Holmes made a move to tend to their child. Katie also declined to appear on 20/20 and opted to send a message: “I regret having upset Leah in the past, and wish her only the best in the future.” This apology was a small token after Leah was forced to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on auditing after saying, “Get a room” to the PDA couple. Here are some more tidbits from Leah’s book:

Tom doesn’t like John Travolta or Kirstie Alley: “I had heard that Tom didn’t like them.”

Tom likes hide-and-seek: Leah says he’s a “big kid” with “goofy ideas of fun.” He made a bunch of Scientologists (including Jada Pinkett Smith) play hide-and-seek in his mansion.

He screamed about cookie dough that was all wrong, but it was right under his nose: “Get in the f***ing present time, is what you need to do! It was horrible to watch someone I admired come undone, and even worse to witness the fear in the assistant’s eyes.”

He’s picky about his tea too: “You served me tea in a chipped mug? Do you know who gets served with a mug that’s chipped? F***ing DBs.”

[From Radar]

DBs are Degraded Beings, who are defined as the CO$ lackeys who serve Tom, David Miscavige, and all the Scientology higher-ups. Tom once shouted about being a “big being because he’s constantly having to deal with the competence of the degraded ones. Miscavige advises Tom that the degraded beings must bebeat down” to force compliance. Nice religion, right?

Tantrums over cookie dough and chipped tea cups. Adult hide-and-seek. And John Travolta is not invited to Tom’s tea parties! All sadly believable. Tom is such a dangerous weirdo.

    Haha I love how this site always uses the craziest looking Tom pics.

    • funcakes says:

      Are there any other pictures? 🙂

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      For such a big being and someone so obsessed with the teeth of others, you would think he would get his two front teeth to match. Like even ball park match. One is half the height of the other. Top pic.

  2. Bishg says:

    Take them down, Leah!!
    I am so happy someone is finally pulling the drapes on the fuckery that is Scientology.

    • Lk says:

      The cult is like a Get Rich and Get a Slave scheme.

    • Tate says:

      Same here. What a disgusting group of people. I can’t remember the last Cruise movie I saw but I definitely won’t be seeing another in the future.

    • Caz says:

      Wow. “How To Destroy a Cult and Famous Person” in one fell swoop!. I had hope of Cruise redeeming himself and leaving Co$….the last shred of goodwill I have towards him (a teen in the 80s I have fond memories of his good movies before Co$) is evaporating.

    • Stephanie says:

      I am so proud of her and wish her the absolute best. I heard an interview with her on NPR today and her stories are all consistent with what other ex-Scientologists say. Share your truth girl and don’t let them intimidate you!

  3. Lexie says:

    Cookie dough was all wrong but right under his nose? I don’t understand how those two things are related.

    • notpretentious says:

      +1 (?)

    • Nayru says:

      Made in front of him perhaps

    • Kymdragon says:

      On another site it clarifies the cookie dough issue – He didn’t think there was ENOUGH cookie dough for everyone, but it turned out there was extra, right in front of him.
      Get in the f***king present time Lexie!

      • Kori says:

        Thanks for this. I didn’t understand that paragraph at all–cookie dough? present time? under the nose? What? LOL

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Get in the f**cking present time? What is with these people?

        Did anyone see the story about his movie trailer bursting into flames? This would seem embarrassing for someone who can control space and time.

      • funcakes says:

        @Belle Epoch
        Maybe Xenu is telling Tom to calm the f@ck down.

      • lucy2 says:

        LOL, belle and funcakes.
        Sounds like it was a wardrobe trailer, but I’m sure he thinks an SP was to blame.

    • funcakes says:

      I can’t believe he would go ape sh$t crazy over a chipped cup. I wonder what that makes me since I put duck tape on the crack of my cereal bowl because I was to lazy to wash another bowl.

  4. MexicanMonkey says:

    That picture is so effing creepy I’m sure it’ll pop up in my nightmares at some point.

  5. LAK says:

    my stand out visual is the oh-so-dignified-bossy Jada being *forced to play hide and seek.

    *as the Tom is/was top of the hollywood tree, i doubt anyone could turn it down.

    • Loopy says:

      Lol I know right, so its quite open at this point that The Smiths are also in this sick cult, I think they have kept it secret not to alienate their mostly Christian audience especially African especially hate witch craft and all this alien cult stuff.

      • qwerty says:

        Have you heard their kids speak? They’re in a cult, no doubt about it. All the doubt went out the window thesecond his son the Galileo opened his mouth.

  6. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    The book seems all about ” bashing Tom Cruise”

    • H says:

      Actually, no its not. I’m reading Remini’s book this morning and not too much Tom stuff. Just the papers pulling out all the celebrity gossip to sell more papers and grab clicks.

      The Sea Org stuff she writes about is horrible. Why aren’t people in jail?

      • Don't kill me I'm French says:

        Okay . Thank you. There it is interesting. What did she write ?

      • CariBean says:

        I bought her book too and now I really can’t wait to start reading it. I’ll be honest, I initially bought it just to throw support in her corner.

      • Natalia says:

        Just bought the book because I wanted to show support and also curious for the insider take. Love Leah, she’s the bomb. Perfect next person to stand up to the evil madness.

      • Gwen says:

        @H..”Why aren’t people in jail?” Because of Money and the “right” contacts, that’s why…like always…

      • Lucinda says:

        I just bought the book today. Only read the intro so far but it is clear she is going after the church and she expects blowback. The last paragraph of her intro is pure gold because she addresses the church directly and tells them she’s coming after them. It’s beautiful!

    • LMAO says:

      And I love it

    • insomniac says:

      About time, too. I never believed the whole “Oh, Tom’s just a good innocent guy who doesn’t truly understand what he’s mixed up in” attitude I’d see elsewhere. He’s in the Co$ because he wants to be, and I think he knows damn well what happens to people on the outs in that cult. He’s not a good guy.

      • Esmom says:

        I agree he’s not a good guy but I still think the Co$ preyed on a him when he was young and they saw a lost soul who needed something meaningful in his life. I still think it’s sad. His life could have been much different, it’s hard to see him as anything but an evil caricature now.

      • Kitten says:

        @Esmom-I agree with you. I hate myself for it but even after watching the Going Clear documentary (which was EXCELLENT) I still somehow felt sad for Cruise (I know, I know–I can’t help it!) because CO$ has destroyed him.

        Yes he also benefitted GREATLY from his connection with CO$ while willfully turning a blind eye to the abuse and indignities of Sea Org members but there’s something so… *off* about him. I don’t know if it’s a chemical imbalance or just that this cult has made him crazy. Either way, my strange, unwanted and bothersome sympathy for him does not negate all the terrible sh*t he’s been a part of. I want to make it clear that I’m in no way giving him a pass–I just think it’s incredibly sad what this cult does to people…

      • LAK says:

        Esmom/Kitten: i think TC is one of those people who will always be fundies whatever their religious leanings.

        TC was raised catholics and partly educated at a seminary. he is thought to have wanted to become a priest at one point. Even his ex-wife Mimi Rogers describes their marital discord in religious terminology that pointed to someone quite devout in religiosity.

        in terms of C0$, that means once he committed, with no counter-balance from external sources like Nicole Kidman, his religious fixation flourished, and he is now a true believer. a fundie.

        and that’s before you take into consideration the Hollywood aspect of his life and how that has pandered to his whims.

      • Kitten says:

        “in terms of C0$, that means once he committed, with no counter-balance from external sources like Nicole Kidman, his religious fixation flourished, and he is now a true believer. a fundie.”

        Really great insights, LAK. Never thought about it from that angle…

      • LakeMom says:

        After studying Scientology for years, I believe every word Leah is saying. As for Cruise and his arrogance, who remembers this?

    • swack says:

      He plays a big part in Scientology and sure Leah wasn’t has close to other top officials. Also, mentioning Tom Cruise gets more publicity for the book – which it needs if Scientology is going to be unmasked.

    • Josephine says:

      I’m just going on these little clips, but I don’t think any of her comments are all that bad about Tom. In my mind, pretty much every one of these Hollywood types is a diva who would scream about a tea cup and they are all in arrested development. I guess I was hoping for something more substantial, evidence of something more damning. Her info just seems sorta . . . lame. Even the story about the baby on the floor seems too forced and unbelievable. I have no doubt that horrible things have happened, but I also think that she just wasn’t privy to them and is coming up with this stuff that is slightly embarrassing but no more than that.

  7. NewWester says:

    Anyone else notice that when Tom Cruise smiles, his eyes seem so “dead” ? The smile and when he laughs just seem so forced. He always seems to be “on” never relaxed

    *** The idea of playing hide and go seek in a mansion does sound like fun. Just not with Tom Cruise

    • Pedro45 says:

      Have you ever seen the clip of Tom laughing maniacally? It’s honestly chilling and even scarier than his dead eyes.

      • NewWester says:

        I have seen that clip. It reminds me of some robot that has a glitch in it’s circuits. Just terrifying

      • antipodean says:

        Chilling is the exact word to describe Tiny Tom. He really does believe all this culty crap. Probably the main draw for him is that he is treated as something of a deity himself. The delusion is strong in this one. I wonder how easy it is for him to play the urbane everyman in his life, when the crazy is crawling around underneath, only flaring up in private.
        Also, again, where are Shelly, and Mary?

      • Kitten says:

        YES. He seems legitimately mentally unstable. Or maybe he’s just drunk on power. Either way, it is terrifying to behold.

      • funcakes says:

        Thinking people are plotting against him. Manic, over the top laughter and fits of rage. Tom is in desperate need of Effexor, Lithium and Ativan.

    • Jenni says:

      Yeah. He and Britney have a lot in common that department. Dead eyes, forced smile, weird body language.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        Well Britney is on a lot of prescriptions just so she can function. Tom doesn’t have that excuse.

    • tracking says:

      Yes. I’ve noticed.

    • BunnyBear says:

      I remember reading that Christian bale based his Patrick Bateman on tom cruise. Blinding movie star smile with just like, nothing behind the eyes. Soooo disturbing.

      • Snappyfish says:

        @bunnybear…now that you say this I can completely believe American Psycho was based on Cruise!! He has always struck me a slightly unhinged. Clearly it’s far more than slightly

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        Haha I just watched that for the first time over the weekend and OMG I could definitely see that. The manic way Patrick Bateman interacts with people, the fake, empty conversations, his perfectionism, comparing the business cards, extensive morning regimen..all of it. Sooo creepy and spot-on.

    • Sea Dragon says:

      Wish I could agree but I can’t tell. His face is so bloated from fillers that his eyes are slits when he smiles.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        He thinks if he twists up his face and bares his veneers it will look like a smile. It doesn’t. Totally agree about the dead eyes, which combined with his exaggerated expression make him look insincere and crazy.

      • tigerlily says:

        Absolutely! He looks way too tweaked and then the dead eyes

    • klein says:

      It’s one of the oddest things in Eyes Wide Shut – whenever he smiles you get the impression there’s something really strange going on.

    • Colleen says:

      I agree with you, and I think the answer lies in LAK’s comment just a bit upthread. My husband and I have always observed and commented that “fundies” (Thanks LAK, love it!) have a very distinct look to them as far as their expressions. Almost glazed-over eyes, with all the expression below. My aunt is like that. She does the kindest things, she says the kindest things, but there is just something off-putting about her face, especially when she starts talking about her Catholic faith or any issue that conflicts with it. Oy!

      But I’m wondering now, especially after reading OK’s comment, if maybe a mental balance is the thing in the first place that allows people to be so obnoxiously zealous with their beliefs. I respect most beliefs and one’s right to exercise it (note I said MOST – COS is not one that I can respect in any form or fashion), but it’s easier to deal with someone of a different belief if they are down to earth. TC is not.

  8. Nancy says:

    I get she’s out there doing her thing to expose the cult but….declaring who he likes or dislikes is rather a moot point and in court would be called hearsay?……Don’t know but stick to the facts Leah, most everyone already knows he is an a hole.

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      Well she went all out on the details, which is great. why not? I think it’s funny she is calling out the biggest members and saying they aren’t one big happy family. Just another truth that will piss off the cult.

    • Carol says:

      @Nancy – I couldn’t agree with you more. I love that Leah is going after David Miscavige and Tom Cruise for the abuses that happen in their cult but talking about some personal stuff that has nothing to do with the cult’s abuses, like Tom playing hide-in-seek, is just…. ugly gossip. I cringed when I read that. It removes the focus on Scientology being a cult and its abuses. I LOVE Tom Cruise gossip but it doesn’t belong in a book that is trying to prove that Scientology is being run like a cult.

  9. Jayna says:

    The excerpt I read of that passage said Jada was there but isn’t a Scientologist. She obviously believes in some of the principles, though, since they opened that school.

    When Tom got back into Scientology heavy after Nicole and they made it their mission to bring him into the fold big time, it’s like they created a narcissistic zealot. Losing Nicole was the worst thing that ever happened to Tom, because she kept him distant from the crazy cult and kept him more grounded. They must have hated her influence on him.

    His relationship to David is disturbing. The co-dependency is mind-boggling.

    • lucy2 says:

      I think Jada is in but carefully avoids the label. If she weren’t one, I don’t think they’d let her hang around for all these years. Plus as you said, the school.

      • FingerBinger says:

        Jada and Will are both in it. You can tell from the pseudo science babble Jaden and Willow spew.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        Agree. If you hear half the crap Jayden spews about alien spirits and such…they are sucked in but dont want to be so polarizing by admitting it.

    • Colette says:

      Jada and Will were never in COS.If they were they would admit it,especially Jada.It’s obvious by the way they raise their kids,Jada gives 0 F##ks about being controversial or unorthodox.Jaden and Willow would be bragging about being COS if they were.

      • Lucinda says:

        I disagree. I think they want people to believe they are really intellectual and don’t want to give the church credit. I read an interview with Will over 15 years ago about the time he first got together with Jada. Jaden may already have been born in fact. At the time, Will was spewing nonsense about having very young children read primary sources for their education and how that was more authentic. He was also talking home school and I remember thinking how he was trying to give this impression of being a great intellectual but he was just trying too hard. It was really weird. I suspect they were just starting to dabble with COS at that time.

  10. Patricia says:

    Well I can’t knock him for the hide-and-seek, I love goofy grown up fun.

    That being said, he’s an insane monster and I’m glad his abuses of people are becoming more known. He sounds like a complete asshole who drinks his own koolaid.

    • k... says:

      Yeah, adult hide n seek in an eccentric celebrity’s mansion sounds like a blast to me.

      • Maria A. says:

        Well, that depends on who you’re playing with: Ruffalo and his kids, Chris Evans, Hiddleston…they’d be fun no matter what.

  11. PinaColada says:

    It so weird that all these celebrities end their filming days and head off to this lunacy! Wtf! It’s like group-mental illness- willingly, mindfully. So confusing

  12. Jayna says:

    I love it SPs, DBs, OTs. Their lingo is hysterical. Degraded Beings, ha-ha.

    I do find it odd that she stooped to putting in the book “I had heard Tom didn’t like” the two actors. It seems petty and selling a book off of Tom Cruise. I hear a lot of things too in my life. It doesn’t make it true. That’s not exactly a fact, “I had heard.” Heard from whom? Just gossip? Tell me about how kids work day and night in the Sea Org and received little to no schooling and were starving. That’s what you should be selling the book off of, the horrible abuses in the COS, not you had heard Tom didn’t like John and Kirstie and leak that as an excerpt.

    Leah has a story to tell about Scientology. I hope she doesn’t try to sell it just off of Tom Cruise. There will be backlash eventually as it might come off mean-spirited telling anything Tom Cruise related to sell a book. She has bashed Katie a few more times in the book also. She seems obsessed with Tom Cruise because he and David have power in the church and she doesn’t like how it’s being headed up. David is crazy. I get it. But guess what, Leah, the whole church was a scam and atrocities were also being committed under Ron L. Hubbard. I want to know important things.

    • Rhiley says:

      I agree, this could really backfire on her if she isn’t careful.

    • K says:

      From what it sounds like from people who have read it the majority of the book is very detailed about her experience in Scientology but the blogs and papers are pulling the small and few cruise bits because let’s be honest it will sell. A poster reading the book up thread confirms this.

    • LAK says:

      look at it a different way. she’s talking about the church leaders and their behaviour. if the church leaders were Joe Bloggs 1 and tweedle dum abusing their accolytes and inner circle, we would be more rational in our judgement. Since it is MissCabbage and TC, both famous and with famousaccolytes and inner circle, especially TC, it’s interpreted as tattle tale.

    • Esmom says:

      I saw an interview with her yesterday and she barely talked about Cruise at all. She did express some concern about Suri and talked about how she and Katie have something in common because they both want to save their daughters from the cult. But her focus was most definitely not on Cruise. She seemed genuinely distraught and upset about the whole “extremist religion,” as she called it.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        Agree. I saw the 20/20 interview and only a few minutes had to do with TC. The rest, she talked about her experiences with abuse and the conditions of the campus in Clearwater. Also talked at length about auditing and reaching the diff levels. I think the TC stuff is getting blown way out of proportion bc it’s an easy media grab.

  13. Ben Dover says:

    Yikes! When will this cray dude be blasted into space to dwell with Xenu?

  14. Sayrah says:


  15. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Ugh. How can anyone find him attractive? He looks like a maniac.

  16. SydneySnider says:

    On my dining table sits the DVD, “Going Clear”. I’m a bit reluctant to watch it now… This guy is truly creepy. Does he still bring in so much money that people kowtow to him as if he really is a god? Is there not such a thing as just ~making~ the roles not so, um… available to him? He’s curdled the milk in my tea.

    • LAK says:

      Perhaps because i have read so much about Co$ over the years, i didn’t think that film went deep enough. it’s singular selling point is that the c0$ higher management, people that were in Misscabagge’s inner circle, are talking on camera and thus confirming everything we’ve heard or read or speculated upon.

      from that POV, i think you should watch it.

      • Lindy79 says:

        I felt the same LAK, it didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know as I’m sure it was the same for anyone who has an interest in celeb gossip, stuff about Cruise has tended to go into Scientology since he lost his shit during War of the Worlds promo.
        However for those who just think Scientology is like any other religion in this day and age I think it would have been a massive eye opener. I’ve had discussions with friends where they’ve said “well how is it any worse to believe in aliens over a god who lives in the clouds and judges us etc.” which is a completely fair point however when they saw the background and what is going on, people disappearing, the Sea Org, the adoration of celebs, the punishments, cutting your family/friends off, having to pay to reach levels, their beliefs about mental health treatments, the threats and intimidation faced by ex members etc it gave a whole new spin on it.

      • Christin says:

        I agree that GC simply put faces with the bits of information we’ve already heard or read about. I found a couple of the speakers’ narratives very memorable.

        One was Spanky, when she described the conditions her baby daughter endured. The other was the older lady who was one of the first SO members and knew LRH personally. When she described nearly having a mental collapse after finally learning the big revelation (and how she wasn’t ‘clear’ after all), it was very interesting and sad at the same time.

      • mayamae says:

        I was very disappointed that Lisa McPherson wasn’t mentioned in the film. There are facts that can’t be argued with – she had a mental breakdown, they blocked her from being committed, they locked her up and observed her as she had a full breakdown, they waited until she was moments from death, and drove past four hospitals before she died. There’s also the fact that a top official admitted he ordered documents of her care destroyed. Her cause of death was altered on the death certificate, and the person who changed the cause of death was later closely associated with CO$.

    • Jen43 says:

      I think Going Clear just scratched the surface of Scientology. It left so many unanswered and disturbing questions.

      • mayamae says:

        Since the public has been receptive to the book and film, I think they should make a sequel. Include Lisa McPherson, and more of the dirty underbelly of the cult.

  17. Lahdidahbaby says:

    I have never even once for a teeny second understood why all those females always thought him hot. He’s just not. Never was. Even in his breakout movie role, dancing in his undies, I couldn’t understand it.

    • H says:

      In Top Gun, I was always an Ice Man fan (Val Kilmer). I’ve never thought TC was attractive. Too short for my tastes, and now we know he’s a crazy, mind-controlled cultist.

      • LAK says:

        i loved and continue to love ice man.

      • Fifedogg says:

        I recently watched Top Gun again and it had been many years since I’d seen it. Enough years for my 40 year old self to note the severe contrast between TC’s Maverick and VK’s Iceman. Iceman oozes masculinity and is just straight up hot imo. Maverick is supposed to represent that but it wasn’t there. At all. He seemed asexual and slightly feminine in comparison to Iceman (heck even Goose was sexier).
        Point is, I’ve known for some time that something is off with TC, but it took watching Top Gun through my eyes now to see that he completely lacks the “hot” and masculinity that’s always been sold in association with him.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      I have never understood his appeal either. I was in 7th grade when Top Gun came out. My classmates were going crazy for him and I remember thinking there’s something “off” about this guy…

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I never liked his smile. It’s like somebody told him once that he had a great smile, and from then on, it looked so fake. Like I dare you to resist this awesome smile. Too contrived. I also think he has a boyish face, which doesn’t age well. See: Donald Trump.

      • BengalCat2000 says:

        @GNAT, the smile is what always bothered me too. My mom used to work at a major state mental institution and the look on his face reminds me of some of the patients. Lights on but nobody’s home sort of thing.

      • FLORC says:

        Not sure if another posted this, but his smile is entirely veneers. He had 1 of the WORST set of teeth for actors. Crooked and weird shapes.
        Also, he’s got the face where if you cover half it looks maniacal from an episode of how I met your mother.

        Overall he’s an evil troll IMO.

    • Tiny Martian says:

      I’ve never found him attractive either. He has the persona of a sterotypical used car salesman.

    • Esmom says:

      I never thought he was hot but he did have a charisma of sorts. I can see why he ascended the way he did, until he adopted sort of an extreme version of the Jerry McGuire persona.

    • Pinky says:

      I’m with you. Disliked him and rarely saw a film of his in the theaters unless I was coerced. He does not have that appeal for me. He is artificial. I do not believe he feels, and thus, he can barely convey the feelings of the characters he portrays.

  18. Rhiley says:

    Did they ever find his poor mother? He would bring her out whenever there was something to promote, but it seems she dropped off the planet with no explanation. It is suspected that she passed away and he hasn’t released a statement, which is fine, but weird when he made her part of his public persona. He seems like a really evil being.

  19. zimmer says:

    Ahh, isn’t Tom cute? He thinks he’s a “big being”?

  20. lucy2 says:

    I guess we now know what happens when a damaged, uneducated person is never told no and led to believe they are some sort of god.

  21. KikiGee says:

    Does anyone remember that time he got pranked on the red carpet, by some guy wearing a flower that squirted water? Cruise kept saying over and over, ‘why would you do something like that?’ louder each time until lackeys started gathering round him and dragged the guy off, as if he’d physically assaulted him. I always disliked Cruise and his creepy vibe, but I remember thinking at the time that that was real bullying behavior, just yelling in the guy’s face, just cos he got water on his face in some silly, harmless joke. But then I guess he’s untouchable – on a higher plane. Yeah.

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      Good thing that person wasn’t a Co$ member! He would have been sentenced to The Hole for years after an incident that “extreme.”

  22. Emmygrant says:

    Tom Cruise is a big part of the problem. His endorsement of Scientology is going a long way towards legitimizing them. This is why the guy who did the “Going Clear” documentary focused more on Cruise than he did on things like the mystery of Shelly Miscavige. That’s also why I don’t think it’s wrong for Leah to shed more light on his crazy.

    Can I just bring up something that I’ve been thinking about? Can you imagine this maniac IN BED?????? If he freaks out over cookie dough and tea in a chipped mug, what do you think he would do if your bikini wax isn’t perfectly shaped??? LOL!!!!

    • antipodean says:

      Ha, ha Bonnie, can you just imagine the critiques he would give of one’s sub par performance? Somehow I don’t think Mr Cruise is an afficionado of close contact with lady’s bits. Much like the rest of his life, all mouth and no trousers, you might say.

      • Jaded says:

        There’s probably a Scientology expression for that – a sub-par bed partner would be an LL (Lousy Lay) or a DF (Dead Fish).

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        DLP (Degraded Lay Partner)

      • Bonnie says:

        Omg, I’m just imagining that Sex and the city episode where Samantha was in between waxes. The guy told her to “clean it upndown there” !!!! I can just see some of that craziness happening!!!

  24. Kate says:

    Scientology is a dangerous and abusive organization. It’s main supporter, main recruiting tool, and probably one of its main financial backers is Tom Cruise. It also appears that Cruise exploits slave and child labor and abuses others. I’m fine with all of that being exposed, even if some frame it as “gossip.” I think the public should know exactly what they’re supporting and financing whenever they buy tickets to his films.

  25. Mia4s says:

    I noticed something interesting about the latest Mission Impossible movie; its box office is actually down from the last one. Roughly the same, but it couldn’t break $200 million in North America. Even with super-positive reviews. The international number also needed heavy help from China. I think it’s clear that Cruise has a box office ceiling. I wonder how that effects him and the cult financially? Only badly I hope.

    Oh and on a franchise level even Vin Diesel is now bigger than Cruise….love it!!!

  26. Samtha says:

    Who else is reading Leah’s book today? We need a Celebitchy book club.

    • justagirl says:

      If I was in the Tribeca area, I would be at her book reading….and conversation with Paul Haggis. That should be mind-blowing.

    • H says:

      I just finished it. Loved it. She’s brutally honest, funny and snarky as hell. I haven’t finished Tony Ortega’s book on Pauline Cooper, whom COS tried to have murdered (allegedly); but of all the books I’ve read on Scientology, Leah’s book was insightful and personal. I’m now a fan.

      • Samtha says:

        I’m up late reading–it’s fantastic. I love how she makes it so clear how, exactly, a person can be drawn in.

    • brincalhona says:

      Just tried to get a copy from the ‘Tology shop down the road but no luck and doesn’t sound like they’re going to have it in stock any time soon. Am shocked that TC thinks others are DBs as that’s how he always comes across.

  27. K says:

    I went on a date with a guy who was an ad or something on movies and he did a tom cruise movie and told me that you’d never meet a more hateful rude man. That he would yell at the crew for no reason. Basically everything Leah describes. Said it was terrible. So yeah this doesn’t shock me.

  28. Burgher says:

    Everyone knows DB is code for Douchebag.
    Yes, that’s why you were served in a chipped mug.

  29. Lisa says:

    dbs? You know the sad thing is that most rich and powerful people feel this way about poor people.

  30. kat says:

    It’s funny, when Matt Damon made those remarks about knowing too much about an actors personal life, the person who sprang to mind was noted raging hetrosexual Tom Cruise.

    I now know so much about what a err… sane and balanced individual he is that I find him unacceptable in any movie role. I look at him and, regardless of the film, I think, there’s Crazy Tom Cruise!

  31. boredblond says:

    These people are loons–and dangerous in my opinion– but losing it over a chipped cup or cookie dough (yum) don’t seem like shocking revelations..I bet you could hear similar tantrum tales about a lot of celebs from their PA’s..fame or church entitlement?

    • Ennie says:

      I think its is not the losing it over silly things, but the reason over why he loses it. It is not just entitlement and pampered diva-esque attitude… it is a real, religious belief. To me, that is actually more dangerous because it is harder to fight. No wonder Katie Holmes could not have a regular divorce, but had to plan a escape like in a movie. The beliefs make them fanatical and dangerous.
      TC and miscarriage are one extreme of the $ci order, and in the other you have the people kept in the hole, and people who are being abused and taken advantage of, who think they deserve what they get. Brain washing on both extremes. TC an his ilk should be ashamed of themselves, of abusing people who serve them and pick up their trash and of what they have done to their families, Shelly, Nicole, their children, and to to many families affected by $ci.

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      Yeah I was a FT nanny/asst for a super wealthy family. They threw tantrums over the tiniest, most minute details (how dare you get the wrong kind of CLIFF bars!!!!!). After a couple months, I started to understand their style and didnt take it as personally. Now I have thicker skin Silver lining

  32. Penelope says:

    Love Leah. Leaving the cult after spending her entire life in it took guts I can’t even imagine having,

    • Kitten says:

      I never had much of an opinion about her (except I loved her in Living Dolls) but after this, she has my utmost respect.

  33. cakecakecake says:

    I SEE you Jada Pickett Smith–no pun intended, LOL!

  34. Ennie says:

    Slay, Leah!
    This SP, DB, MF, Big Biatch, wog, muggle full of thetans has not paid a penny to see your movies in a long time, and will continue to sabotage your short, tiny being films, muahahahahahahahahaha

  35. me says:

    So, Katie Holmes was like Rosemary and Suri is Andy Candy?

  36. iheartgossip says:

    Oh Tommy. You’re veering hard into MJ territory. Tom is the example of having zero ‘no’ friend around you. Spoiled. Nuts. Entitled. Tom. Tom. Tom!

  37. Bread and Circuses says:

    I would love friends who want to play adult hide-and-seek. I adore people who keep their sense of playfulness.

    But I would drop that friend like flaming doggie-doo if I saw them treat someone serving them in that manner.

  38. BusyBee says:

    I believe that Tom Cruise not only is aware of the awful things this cult does but has personally “beat down” those who serve him. He is too close to Miscavage not to have gotten his hands dirty himself.

  39. Viv says:

    I remember in the nineties when he was considered a really hot movie star….. Now he’s a crazy dude who plays hide and seek, jumps on couches and throws massive toddler style tantrums while believing himself to be a God. If he wasn’t a slave using, emotionally abusive psychopath who uses his power to abuse, degrade, intimidate and bully those who can’t stand up to him, his narcissistic personality induced insanity would be funny but given the harm he has caused and continues to inflict on ‘lessers’, it’s just really infuriating and scary that he is continually indulged by Hollywood and movie audiences.

  40. clion4eva says:

    …well…there’s hide n seek n cookie dough…then theres the speedballin crew…which led 43 student teachers to be murdered cos they dared to protest a color bar…you choose..

  41. Penelope says:

    Tommy and his BFF David are both nutty as fruitcakes, and evil.

  42. Potato says:

    The roots are severe egomania and chemical imbalance. What a crazo. I don’t have any problems believing any of this stuff because I’ve seen the Tom-gets-the-top-HO$-award video and also his bat sh&t laughing one that was leaked.

  43. Jayna says:

    This is when Tom unleashed the crazy and showed the world what Scientology had done to him. His eyes look insane.

    • Katija says:

      What a privileged little f**k. Does he not understand that women who don’t get treatment for post-partum sometimes, y’know… murder their children? Slit their wrists in the bath tub? Failing to seek PSYCHIATRIC, *MEDICAL* care for post-partum can result in homicides and suicides.

  44. Victoria says:

    Getting the book this weekend. Go Leah!

  45. Blackbetty says:

    The footage of him in Going Clear is so creepy. It’s a shame Going Clear only played in arthouse theaters in my country. It should’ve been in EVER cinema.

  46. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    I’m scared! “Big Beings”? “Degraded Beings”? What the fuck? Please bring Co$ down! They’re horrible. It’s very scary that people are being held against their will. Government needs to shut them down.

  47. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Oh, twice now I have accidentally stumbled upon Co$ centers. One was about 10 years ago. I had an apptmt at Kaiser Permanente (medical insurance/doctor’s offices) in Los Angeles. Well, I overshot the parking entry and wound up at a stoplight called L.Ron Hubbard Way. Not kidding! I look to my right and here is this behemoth blue building or compound really w/a HUGE creepy Co$ cross.

    I flipped out and started taking pictures. My mother was like “huh?” “What are you doing?” lol I had ample time to kill, so I took a little detour all the way around the compound, even pulling over to stop and take pictures. However, they have all these random “guards” stationed. I think they were all in street clothes, but they had that domineering Co$ thing going on. I couldn’t even pull over without one of them jumping over to my car asking what I needed (not nicely). So I took to driving around, slowing down when I saw another loon, and waving at them, smiling & saying hello. They prob took my license plate number & labeled me as an SP.

    Now, just a couple years ago, I’m taking my nieces around Hollywood. Lo and behold, there’s the Scientology “Celebrity Centre”! What a crock of shit. Celebrity Centre? Why? Do they ever question themselves? Anyhow, another goon right on the corner sidewalk as I turned. Of course he eyeballed us as we slowed down, so I waved and shouted “Have a great day!” Dickheads….

  48. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Oh and this. I checked myself to make sure I recalled the stupid L. Ron Hubbard Way correctly. I don’t know if you guys can take my upload. Okay, nope. Can’t do it..but at least here’s a link for you:
