Unlike some of her peers, Elisabeth Moss has always remained pretty tight lipped and vaguely bullshitty about her role as a lifelong Scientologist. Her most aggressive public stand was when she walked out of the room after Leah Remini won a Television Critics Award for the Scientology takedown docu-series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. Recently, Elisabeth’s been out there promoting her new movie, The Invisible Man, a role originally intended for Johnny Depp. While on Watch What Happens Live, a caller asked about the rumors she was engaged to Scientology Messiah, Tom Cruise.
via E! News:
“Wait, there were gossip stories that you were getting married to Tom Cruise?” WWHL host Andy Cohen asked as Moss laughed.
“How did you miss that?” Moss joked. “I actually was confused and also mainly got texts from people being like, ‘I didn’t know, why didn’t you tell me?’ And just confusion from my friends, but mainly poking fun at it ’cause obviously they knew it wasn’t true.”
Ha ha. Yes, Elisabeth. Obviously it’s totally nuts that Tom Cruise would ever want a young Scientologist actress to be his his wife. She went on to say:
“And then I saw it on the cover of one of the gossip magazines, and I was like, ‘I’ve never had that haircut,'” Moss said of the magazine’s cover photo. “Like, it was supposed to be a picture of the two of us and I was like, ‘I’ve never styled my hair like that.'”
“It’s clearly not me,” The Handmaid’s Tale star continued, adding it was a picture of the back of someone’s head, and she just knew it wasn’t her.
Don’t you see? I could never be the Queen, because… my hair! My hair! Here’s the full clip:
It’s good (and oh so sad) to remember that Elisabeth was born into Scientology, and, if she left, she’d never get to talk to her mom again. Just like Tom and Suri Cruise, and Nicole Kidman and her kids with Tom. Hell, Leah Remini only found out about her Scientology Dad’s death a full month after he passed.
With that said, oh how I wish the shady/non-kiss ass version of Andy Cohen would appear during these moments and go after the full Xenu tea.
