Actress Leah Remini Opens Up About Leaving Scientology

"For more than 30 years, actress Leah Remini was a devout member of the Church of Scientology, the controversial organization characterized as a religion and created by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. Though some high-profile Scientologists made the decision to join the church during their adulthood, Remini had little choice in the matter, as she tells 'Oprah: Where Are They Now?' in the above video.

'My mother was in Scientology my whole life. Most people don't know that we were raised in it -- I didn't decide to get into it,' Remini clarifies. 'I was brought into it by my mom.'
While many outside of Scientology have a basic awareness of some beliefs and practices of its members, Remini says that the true commitment required of Scientologists is far less known.

'I don't think people know the amount of dedication it takes to be in this organization,' she says. 'I mean, it was every day, three-and-a-half hours minimum, seven days a week.'”
