John Travolta Responds to Scientology Exposé Going Clear

The documentary Going Clear, recently aired on HBO, exposed some pretty disturbing things about the Church of Scientology, including details about its hold on big Hollywood names like Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

On Travolta specifically, there is apparently a “blackmail file” the church has on him, as the documentary says.

Today Travolta finally broke his silence about the movie, though he made clear he hasn’t seen it yet, and has no plans to do so.

He said all the attacks on the church came from disgruntled former members, and he has personally found Scientology to be “nothing but brilliant” for him:

“I’ve been so happy with my (Scientology) experience in the last 40 years,” he said, “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.”
