Tom Cruise might be leaving Scientology. But why?

This seems unlikely, but Star says Tom Cruise has been distancing himself from Scientology in the wake of his divorce from Katie Holmes and spending more time with non-Scientologist friends because he feels it has hurt him both personally and professionally.

“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 insider 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.”

Hopefully this is true because Tom Cruise is a genuinely nice guy by all accounts. I assume Scientology will try to harass him into staying but just ignore them. They’re basically sci-fi nerds. They’re about as intimidating as those gangs in old movies who walk together in a line snapping their fingers.

    Agreed about him being a nice guy. Of all the actors/celebrities these days that are always dealing with controversy, aside from his Scientology stuff, no one really has anything bad to say about him. No arrests, no drug problems (or rehab), nothing. Guy has always been a straight shooter (no gay jokes please) yet has always gotten flack even before the Scientology stuff.

    If this is actually true, then cue the official press release of him admitting he’s gay. From what I’ve heard the church of Scientology has plenty of evidence against him and could damage his reputation. Hopefully Tom beats them to the punch.

    Also I hope his career turns around after this. Up until the Scientology/Katie Holmes/Oprah couch jumping stuff his movies were still well received and made money as well.. If Stallone can make a comeback in his 60′s, there’s no reason Cruise can’t do it in his 50′s.

    I’m with John Travolta’s E-meter on this one.
