John Travolta won’t be seeing “Going Clear” documentary
HBO’s new documentary “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” basically lets a lot of people see the intrinsic eerie of Scientology.
The documentary is based on the book "Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief" written by Lawrence Wright. Buzz has already surrounded the controversial documentary garnering interests from viewers who want to take a peek on this mysterious organization which has close ties to the showbiz industry.
One of its most famous members, John Travolta, said he has no plans of watching the Alex Gibney‘s documentary.
“No, I haven’t,” the star of “Saturday Night Fever” and “Pulp Fiction” said in a telephone interview with Tampa Bay Times when asked if he had seen the documentary, “and I don’t really care to.”
He later defended the organization and explained that he is totally dedicated to the church which according to him was “brilliant”, criticizing the dissenters for being “disgruntled.”
“I haven’t experienced anything that the hearsay has (claimed), so why would I communicate something that wasn’t true for me?” Travolta said. “It wouldn’t make sense, nor would it for Tom [Cruise], I imagine.”
He also said that he is so happy with his 40 years of Scientology experience and that the Scientology-inspired documentary is so decidedly negative.
Travolta has nothing but good words and praises for the church he belongs adding that it helped him pass through the “insurmountable storms” of his life which includes the death of his child, loss of loved ones, and physical illnesses. “Scientology has been so beautiful for me, that I can’t even imagine attacking it.”
Travolta went on crediting the church for helping him recover from the death of his teen son, Jett, after a seizure in 2009 while they were on a vacation in the Bahamas.
