Keep your enemies close and the Church of Scientology far?
In a report from Star magazine, Tom Cruise is reportedly taking a step back from the Church who’s he’s become quite synonymous with in years past as he’s realizing the damage it’s done him.
“Tom hasn’t admitted that he’s definitely leaving Scientology for good,” a source tells the magazine. “But he’s distanced himself from those in the church and has been hanging out with good friends who aren’t part of the religion.”
The Jack the Reaper star 50, has apparently become introspective and is weighing the wreckage the controversial religion has caused in his professional and personal life, which include this relationships with his ex-wives Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman and former flame Penelope Cruz.
“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 explained. “He’s finally seeing that being such an advocate for Scientology hasn’t served him as well as he’d hoped – to he’s gone through three divorces, and his public perception has sunk to an all-time low.”
If those issues weren’t more than plenty for the Mission Impossible star, Cruise is now considering the impact his commitment to Scientology will affect his youngest child, Suri, who’s in Holmes’ primary care.
There’s no doubt Cruise is a great father to the famous 6-year-old, but the actor has some difficult decisions to make as there could be a wedge that has been created by Scientology between he and his daughter.
