In the wake of the explosive HBO documentary “Going Clear,” John Travolta has come to Scientology’s defense.
The 61-year-old made it clear he has no plans to see the doc, which alleges the church physically abuses and blackmails its members, among other questionable acts.
“No I haven’t and I don’t really care to,” Travolta told the Tampa Bay Times when asked if he’ll see the film.
He’s been a member of the church for more than 40 years and claims his experiences have been nothing but amazing.
“I haven’t experienced anything that the hearsay has (claimed), so why would I communicate something that wasn’t true for me?” he added. “It wouldn’t make sense, nor would it for Tom [Cruise], I imagine.”
“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,” added the star of “The Forger,” who trains at the church’s headquarters in Clearwater, Fla., five days a week when he isn’t away filming.
