Scientology influences Tom Cruise's love life, claims new book

Tom Cruise

A new book has claimed that the Church of Scientology has gone to extraordinary lengths to influence superstar Tom Cruise love life. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning American writer Lawrence Wright the book, titled In Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood And The Prison Of Belief claims that Scientology boss David Miscavige succeeded in cultivating Cruise as a spiritual leader of his movement after he became Hollywood's biggest star.

The book alleges the church grew him a wild flower meadow in the desert where he and ex-wife Nicole Kidman could frolic hand-in-hand and when he needed a new woman in his life, they "auditioned" dozens of actresses for the role, reported Daily

Mail.

A young Cruise was introduced to Scientology by his first wife, actress Mimi Rogers, in 1986. Wright claims that Miscavige did not like Kidman as he feared she was supplanting the church in Cruises affectionsand after their divorce in 2001, the church worked towards turning their adopted children against Kidman, a claim denied by the organisation Penelope Cruz was regarded as too independent-minded by church and when Cruise ended his relationship with the actress, the organisation worked on auditioning several actresses as potential girlfriends for the actor.

Cruise finally went on to marry Katie Holmes, who surprised the actor last year by filing for divorce. The actors latest divorce has brought intense media focus on his relationship with Scientology. Before 50-year-old Cruise, John Travolta was the church's biggest star name.

According to Wright, the "Saturday Night Fever" actor was terrified that if he broke with the church, it might use against him confessions he made about his sexuality during his Scientology spiritual counselling sessions, called auditing

The church has dismissed Wright book as "an error-filled, unsubstantiated, bigoted, anti-Scientology book", which relied on the accounts of a "handful of angry, bitter individuals" who have left the church.
