The director and writer of "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief" have issued a call to Tom Cruise and John Travolta to speak out about their experience within the organization, including allegations of abuse within.
"I was struck by the film's focus on Travolta and Cruise," Times Talk moderator Logan Hill said on Tuesday. "It seemed designed to and really put specific pressure on Travolta and Cruise to either reform or apostatize."
"The fact is they are the front of the church," director Alex Gibney responded. "They are the reason a lot of people join, particularly Tom Cruise now. They have a recruiting power that's enormous.
