Top Scientologists have no doubt been scheming and laying plans in preparation for an assault against the upcoming HBO Scientology documentary that promises new and juicy revelations about the so-called religion and its followers – including Tom Cruise and John Travolta. No stranger to controversy, HBO commissioned the documentary two years ago – right after the book “Going Clear” was released. The book includes filmmaker Paul Haggis’ experiences as a Scientologist. Producers are already bracing themselves for a legal attack from Scientology lawyers with plenty of legal counsel of their own. According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO hopes to show the documentary at Sundance and have a 2015 airdate. We can hardly wait!
It’s not the least bit surprising to hear that Katie Holmes refused to talk about her ex-husband Tom Cruise for this week’s cover interview in People magazine. The Daily News reported that before Katie did the interview she laid out lots of ground rules. Among them: She didn’t want the interview to be based on her marriage to Tom, she didn’t want Tom’s name on the cover, and she wanted the interview to be positive. Katie wasn’t being difficult. Fact is, like Tom’s ex Nicole Kidman, Katie doesn’t want to inadvertently say ANYTHING the least bit offensive about Tom. Both ex-wives are scared and don’t want Scientologists getting riled up. And chances are, they signed confidentiality agreements when they were divorced.
It was inevitable. Tom Cruise’s son Connor, who is now a successful DJ, is drifting away from Scientology. He’s been socializing with sophisticated people and started developing doubts about the so-called “church.” According to RadarOnline, reports have surfaced that Connor has finally decided to LEAVE the church and he told his father. Surprisingly, Tom is not disowning him – he wants his son to be happy and doesn’t care about his religious beliefs. Since Tom is so important to the church, they are unlikely to make a fuss. Above, Connor visited the Saharan desert and posted a photo of himself.
SOMEBODY started a silly rumor that singles Tom Cruise and Sandra Bullock are about to be fixed up because “they’d make a great match.” First of all, and most important, Sandra Bullock is not a Scientologist and would never become one. She’s too smart. And being smart is NOT a requirement for Tom – he prefers malleable, very young women, who will admire him and hang on his every word. Sandra would NOT fit into Tom’s lifestyle- she has her own very successful career, so she couldn’t be at his beck and call. Plus, she has a young child and his education to think about. She wouldn’t pick up and move easily. Tom is a likeable guy, but he always has that black cloud of Scientology hanging over his head.

July is a slow month for gossip, and The National Enquirer knows that stories implying that Tom Cruise is gay sell lots of magazines, so they revisit the subject as often as possible. This time around they’re grasping at straws by quoting The New York Times. The newspaper reviewed a book called “The Actress” and surmised that a main character – a closeted gay actor – was based on Tom Cruise. Naturally, they assume that Tom is upset over the whole thing. Indeed, Tom has always taken legal action against gay accusations and won. The fact is HE IS NOT GAY! (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) Yes, he’s a Scientologist and he’s had three unsuccessful marriages, but there has never been a scrap of genuine evidence that he is gay. He’s a decent guy, a little uncomfortable with women, and sometimes socially awkward, but he is straight. Isn’t picking on him for being a Scientologist ENOUGH?

“Edge of Tomorrow” may have fizzled in the USA, but Japanese fans are still crazy for Tom Cruise. He’s promoting the movie, and seemed very touched by the warm reception he got there. Tom DOES look a little different. His smile isn’t as flashy, his face is a bit rounder and his hair isn’t so black. He actually looks more like a normal person than a superhero movie star.

Tom Cruise flashed a confident smile at paparazzi in London as he was leaving a place called Chiltern Firehouse. One naughty paparazzi noted that Tom looked a tad taller than usual and shot a close-up of Tom’s high heel boots. A very expensive men’s store in Beverly Hills provides Tom with height enhancing built-op footwear.

We came across this photo of Tom Cruise early in his career with awful teeth, and it reminded us of a story. A dentist who treated Tom told us that it was a huge event when Tom had anything done to his teeth like a new veneer or whatever. Tom and his entourage would come to the office after hours and Tom even brought a lighting technician who set up studio quality lighting so everyone could see EXACTLY how his smile looked on camera and that the tooth color matched perfectly.
Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss would make a perfect wife for Tom Cruise- according the National Enquirer. And they might be right. Moss 31, is 20 years younger than Cruise and that’s the way he likes it. Most important of all, she is a Scientologist so he wouldn’t have to twist her arm to join the so-called “religion.” Tom’s last two marriages collapsed because his wives- Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes – didn’t want to commit to Scientology. Certainly the Scientology leaders would be thrilled if Tom and Elisabeth became a Hollywood power couple. Tom hasn’t been lucky in love lately – he even goes to clubs with his DJ son Connor in hopes of meeting someone. Why doesn’t somebody fix Tom up with Elisabeth?

For the last six months, In Touch magazine has been trumpeting that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are secretly dating. Jamie is a good friend of Katie’s ex-husband Tom Cruise and credits Tom for boosting his career. The magazine continues to promote this totally fake story as their exclusive scoop because Katie and Jamie can’t be bothered to address it. (Katie is not even Jamie’s “type” – if you know what we mean) They are simply friends. Think about it – would either Katie or Jamie risk offending Tom by having an affair? You don’t date your powerful ex-husband’s friend OR the person who helped your career. It’s completely out of character for Katie and we wish In Touch would stop beating this dead horse of a story.
