9 April 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After two decades of being defended and feared by its movie star members, the Church of Scientology now appears to be in retreat, with Hollywood no longer wary of exposing and questioning the movement’s practices. The HBO Scientology documentary “Going Clear,” by director Alex Gibney, exposed the organization’s dubious claims, outlandish origin texts and alleged abuse of its followers despite dozens of legal challenges from Scientology, whose most famous members are Tom Cruise and John Travolta. The documentary attracted 1.7 million viewers, making it one of the most-watched documentaries ever to air on the network. “It was still aired, »

John Travolta on Going Clear: 'Scientology has been so beautiful for me'

7 April 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

John Travolta has spoken out against HBO's documentary on Scientology Going Clear, also revealing that he hasn't seen it and doesn't "really care to".

The actor - who has been a Scientologist since 1975 - defended his religious system in response to the documentary directed by Alex Gibney and adapted from a book of the same title by Lawrence Wright.

The documentary centres on the alleged transgressions of the church, and the huge influence that it claims Travolta and fellow Scientologist Tom Cruise have in recruiting new members.

It also profiles eight former members of the practice.

Speaking during an interview with the Tampa Bay Times to promote new movie The Forger, Travolta was asked whether he had seen the exposé.

"No, I haven't, and I don't really care to," he said.

"I haven't experienced anything that the hearsay has [claimed], so why would I communicate something that wasn't true for me? »

John Travolta Dismisses 'Going Clear,' Says Scientology Has Been 'Beautiful'

7 April 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Travolta said he hasn't seen HBO's scathing Scientology documentary, Going Clear, and has no intention of watching Alex Gibney's film, which expands on the church's numerous abuses detailed in Lawrence Wright's similarly titled book.

Speaking with the Tampa Bay Times, Travolta said, "I've been so happy with my [Scientology] experience in the last 40 years, that I really don't have anything to say that would shed light on [a documentary] so decidedly negative. I've been brought through storms that were insurmountable, and [Scientology has] been so beautiful for me, that I can't even imagine attacking it. »
