Mission Impossible: To Distance Tom Cruise from Scientology Before Blockbuster Opens - 2015-07-10
Tom Cruise leaving Scientology? Not on your life. But someone is orchestrating a media campaign to make people think the "Mission Impossible" star is bravely choosing his 9 year old daughter Suri over the group depicted as crazy and creepy in the HBO doc "Going Clear."
The doc was so damaging in portraying Cruise as a nutty robot who ordered the bugging of Nicole Kidman that again someone– Cruise himself, his reps– is trying to change the conversation.
It started with supermarket tabloid The Star. Strangely, both Esquire and Redbook– Hearst magazine websites– then quoted The Star. The lemming like Hollywood Reporter turned it into a video report. The gist? That Cruise, who hasn't seen Suri in almost two years, will leave Scientology because the cult won't let Cruise be involved with her.
