To read the headlines, you’d think Leah Remini and Elisabeth Moss are beefing. It doesn’t sound right that those two would have an issue between them, except of course if you take into account that Leah Remini is speaking out against Scientology and Elisabeth Moss is staunchly defending it. Okay so, there might be a slight tiff there.
It’s not so much a quarrel between them. They’re not beefing like most celebrities do via Twitter or iTunes. But, they are on two opposite sides of the issue and there is an Emmy Award show coming up. It gave a little fuel to a question about whether or not Elisabeth Moss would speak to Leah Remini at the award show.
They both will be there because they are both going up for awards. Leah has been nominated for Outstanding Informational Series or Special for A&E’s Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. Of course, Elisabeth Moss was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her outstanding role in The Handmaid’s Tale.
On The Cover Of The Hollywood Reporter
So, you see? It’s written right into the award. Leah Remini has put out a series where she is letting people know about the dangers of Scientology as a person who was raised up in it. She believes strongly that the organization does harm and she spells out why.
On the other hand, Elisabeth Moss recently was questioned about Scientology when a fan made a comparison between it and Gilead, the setting of The Handmaid’s Tale. Obviously, that might have struck a nerve with her. But she handled it quite well when she replied, “That’s actually not true at all about Scientology. Religious freedom and tolerance and understanding the truth and equal rights for every race, religion and creed are extremely important to me.”
Elisabeth Moss Also Raised Up In Scientology
So then, what’s the thing between Leah Remini and Eliabeth Moss? Leah explains that in Scientology there is a thing called Acceptable Truth. “It means you only say what’s acceptable to the public. But she believes that I’m an antisocial personality.”
Leah went on to say, “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.”
I’m wondering if Elisabeth Moss has even given it a thought.
