Leah Remini stated in the past that this church forbids Moss talk to her because Remini has an “antisocial personality,” as reported by The New Yorker. Given this statement, Moss answered the following:
She has never approached me. I have never received any request to speak with her. So there hasn’t been an opportunity for her to say that. I don’t know her that well, so it’s not like we’re friends with her.
In addition to the first rumor, there is another. In 2017, when Moss won his Emmy for The Handmaid’s Talethanked her mother on stage for teaching her “that you can be nice but tough.” The Hollywood Reporter published an article after the award ceremony in which a former Scientologist claimed that swearing is the way church members silence average people. Scientology informant, Tony Ortega, added that cursing is “almost a sacrament” in this religion. The church denied this and maintained that “there is no such teaching.”
