UPI | Ex-Scientologist: Cruise ‘scary to watch’
Former Scientologist Karen De La Carriere said Cruise took on more and more of Miscavige’s personality traits as time went on, something Scientologists call valence.
She pointed to Cruise’s interview with Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today” show in 2010 as an example of this channeling of Miscavige’s personality.
“The way he lit into Matt Lauer, calling him glib and attacking him — that was exactly how David Miscavige deals with people,” says De La Carriere. “That was the purest example of how Tom is in Miscavige’s valence. It’s a scary thing to watch.”
