Tom Cruise may be easing up on the Scientology
Tom Cruise hasn't been on The Juice* much lately, mostly because we're sure no matter what anyone says about anything, he misses his daughter Suri, who spends most of his time with Katie Holmes. Now Star is saying that the 50-year-old actor is considering stepping back from Scientology, because it ruined his marriage. Can't say whether that's true or not, but let's hear about poor ol' Tom for a minute.
"Tom hasn't admitted that he's definitely leaving Scientology for good, but he's distanced himself from those in the church and has been hanging out with good friends who aren't part of the religion," a source tells the glossy. Star notes Scientology was a factor in his divorce from Nicole Kidman and breakup with Penelope Cruz, and let's not forget Sofia Vergara told him to beat it because of the whole auditing thing.
"Tom's been leaning on friends who have different perspectives, getting advice on moving on from Katie as well as on everything he's been going through with Scientology," the source said. "He's finally seeing that being such an advocate for Scientology hasn't served him as well as he'd hoped -- he's gone through three divorces, and his public perception has sunk to an all-time low."
An all-time low? Does almost $700 million worldwide for Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol sound like an all-time low? Now, John Travolta starring in Battlefield Earth, that's an all-time low. In any event, if Tom is stepping back from the church, it's because he's too busy churning out Oblivion, Jack Reacher and All You Need is Kill. Yeah, boy, his movie career is in tatters.
