"They had the fear of God in them": Tom Cruise's Assistant Was Scared For Life After the Top Gun Star Got Angry Over Cookie Dough, What Really Happened

Despite being the world’s biggest movie star, Tom Cruise hasn’t been the easiest guy to work with. Over the years, several celebrities have come forward to share their experience of working with Cruise, including Thandie Newton, who blasted the actor for his dominant behavior during Mission Impossible 2.

The Kevin Can Wait star Leah Remini has also never seen eye to eye with the actor and has been pretty vocal about her viewpoints regarding Cruise. Over the last decade, the actress hasn’t shied away from calling out the Top Gun: Maverick star over different issues, including his involvement with the Church of Scientology.

Tom Cruise allegedly lost his cool over a cookie dough

Over the years, Leah Remini has repeatedly called out the Top Gun: Maverick actor on multiple occasions. Back in 2015, the actress released her memoir,  Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, where she didn’t back away from blasting Tom Cruise for his demeanor toward his assistants.

In her memoir, the actress recalled one particular moment when the Mission Impossible star lost his cool over cookie dough. The actress claimed that Tom Cruise was allegedly furious over the situation and everyone was scared of him. She wrote,

“Apparently relaying this desire to his assistants, Remini says Cruise walked into his kitchen and when he failed to see the prepackaged cookie dough waiting for him on the counter “he instantly got angry.”

The actress later explained the situation while speaking with People by stating,

“They had the fear of God in them because they knew what was coming. They are probably still in Florida right now because they disgraced him,”

Following Leah Remini’s claims, Tom Cruise’s team came forward with a statement and debunked these claims and stated that these were all fabricated by Remini to ensure her memoir’s success.

However, the cookie dough incident wasn’t the only situation that Leah Remini would call out the actor for. Following her exit from the Church of Scientology after 35 years, Remini claimed that Tom Cruise was the reason behind her decision to leave. Remini has long criticized the actor for his involvement with the church and in 2018, she opened up about her experience during her interview with The Daily Beast. She said,

“He is very aware of the abuses that go on in Scientology. He’s been part of it. Scientologists are told that Cruise is saving the world single-handedly, so he is considered a deity within Scientology,”
