Actor Tom Cruise has been lobbying officials in Germany over the country's strong stance against Scientology.

Cruise has long been an outspoken advocate of the religion and wanted to lend his weight to seeing it recognised in Germany.

He met with US ambassador Dan Coats while in the country promoting his new movie Vanilla Sky with co-star and girlfriend Penelope Cruz.

Germany refuses to recognise Scientology as a legitimate church, claiming it is a fake religion based on making money from its followers.
