“Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” is sweeping the box office charts by storm. While Tom Cruise’s latest movie is undoubtedly a success, the 53-year-old actor was recently met with controversies surrounding his involvement in the Church of Scientology. In a leaked video, the “Top Gun” actor revealed his reason for joining the Church of Scientology. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
While rumors about Tom Cruise’s leaving the Church of Scientology have already been dismissed by several news outlets, a video of Cruise delivering a speech in front of the Scientologists in Madrid in 2004 was leaked, Radar Online reported. Cruise explained his reasons for joining the Church, including the good things that happened to him since he became a Scientologist.
“I confronted the same problems as everyone else: Conflict, upsets, interpersonal relationships,” Cruise said, according to the translated version of the speech. The “Mission Impossible” actor went on and admitted that these problems prevented him from reaching the ultimate goal – happiness.
Cruise revealed that the Church of Scientology helped him be rid of these things, including despair. “What I found were tools that work; solutions that can be applied and that resolve, in fact, the problems of life. And above all, it helped me to find peace and happiness.”
Tom Cruise was previously rumored to be leaving the Church of Scientology for his daughter Suri. According to some reports, Cruise wanted to leave the Church after having a talk with his 9-year-old daughter with Katie Holmes. Cruise allegedly realized that Suri is closely becoming a “suppressive person,” which meant that he could no longer be in contact with her.
Is Tom Cruise really leaving the Church of Scientology? Or do you think his speech in 2004 proves that he is really decided on staying as a Scientologist for the rest of his life? Sound off in the comments!
