Leah Remini is opening up about her decision to leave the Church of Scientology.

“We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we’re about,” the actress told People at the DesignCare even in Malibu over the weekend.

She explained, “I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct.”

“That for me, that’s what I’m about,” said the “King of Queens” star. “It wouldn’t matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to.”

Remini added, “It doesn’t matter, it could be anything. I thought about the family being broken up for some other cause, and I’m not about to shut up.”
