Leah Remini doesn't expect a call from some of Hollywood's most famous Scientologists anytime soon.

As the actress continues sharing her past experiences in the church, a few familiar faces are being brought into the dialogue.

When asked if prominent members John Travolta and Tom Cruise have recently reached out to her, Leah claimed they are not permitted to do so.

"They will not reach out to me. They are not allowed to reach out to me," she shared with E! News before the series premiere of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. "John Travolta by the way is one of the nicest, sweetest people you're ever going to meet."

She continued, "They wouldn't want to reach out to me because what they've been taught is that I mean them harm, that I am an anti-social personality that means them harm, that I literally wake up in the morning and want them to fail in life. That is the mentality."

One celebrity Leah tries to keep out of the discussion is her close friend Jennifer Lopez. Because the singer's dad is a Scientologist, Leah doesn't want to interfere with their family dynamic.

"She's very loving and very supportive but I don't want to put Jennifer in a position where she has to promote this show. I don't want to hurt her relationship with her dad and that's the difference," the author of Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology shared with E! News. "I'm okay with people being Scientologists. I will still be their friend. I will still be the godmother to your daughter. It's you who will not talk to me because I don't believe in Scientology and that's the point."

The Church of Scientology has repeatedly denied Leah's claims and allegations. In response to her A&E docu-series, a spokesperson for the church recently issued a statement to Today.

"Leah Remini's ‘reality' show, like her last one, is nothing more than a scripted, rehearsed, acted and dramatized work of fiction," the statement read in part. "She and the other anti-Scientologists in her program have been expelled from the Church for unethical conduct."

The spokesperson also encouraged people to learn more about Scientology by visiting its website.

For Leah's part, she assures viewers that she feels safe and doesn't regret giving "brave" people the opportunity to speak out.

"The people who are just average people who dedicated their lives to this organization and are willing to tell me their stories, these are the brave people of the world," Leah shared with E! News. "With the series, they will hopefully get the acknowledgement they deserve."

Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath airs Tuesday night at 10 p.m. on A&E.
