Why Is No One Talking About Tom Cruise and Scientology? - 2018-07-26
At 56, he is a marvel of aging, a practical world wonder executing outrageous stunts of escalating danger, year after year (a flash of that dashing, confusingly youthful smile its own veritable human special effect).
He is the star of Mission: Impossible—Fallout, a film being gilded an action masterpiece, with critics straining their vocal chords cheering how it wows, thrills, and even "fucks." It comes out this weekend, and it is very good!
Cruise is also a Scientologist. Did we remember that? I mean, of course we remember that. It's arguably the first thing someone thinks of when they think about Cruise at this point: his longtime stature as a high-ranking member and proponent of the Church of Scientology and his close relationship with its leader, David Miscavige. But I'm just checking because, as Cruise takes his victory lap on this fawning press tour, the organization seems to be receiving nary a mention.
