Tom Cruise has a new ‘mystery lady,’ requires all staffers to take CO$ tests

Tom Cruise

Here are some photos of Tom Cruise at the Swedish premiere of Jack Reacher, which is initially indistinguishable from the UK premiere for two reasons: (1) Tom is sporting his mighty lifts and not putting any other thought into his sartorial getup; and (2) Rosamund Pike is wearing an equally disastrous yellow dress (see photos here). However, this latest premiere is reason for a few giggles because the Case of Tom’s Mystery Ladies has been reopened, and Tom has been photographed “enthusiastically greetinga very attractive brunette who was “waiting for him in the cold dressed in nothing but a short skirt with tights and a green jacket.” According to the Mail, there was no PDA between the two, but they did head off to the nearest nightclub together. Rowrr.

Certainly, Tom is enjoying himself in Europe and especially in London where he is filming All You Need Is Kill, but his presence hasn’t exactly helped the “church” of Scientology. According to Tony Ortega’s blog, the recent UK census has revealed an alarmingly small number of British citizens who claim to be Scientologists. In 2011, there were only 2418 people who were willing to admit that they are indeed members of the CO$ (as opposed tot he 100,000+ members that David Miscavige has recently claimed). Not only is the actual number of self-proclaimed Scientologists quite amusing, but it’s far less than the number of British citizens (out of a nation of 56.1 million people) claiming to be Jedi Masters (176,632) and less than half the the number claiming to belong to the Heavy Metal (6,242) religion. Buh bye, CO$.

Oh, and here’s well-timed update, which is that most (but not all of) Tom’s “hired help” may very well be slave labor, but Tom actually does hire some (presumed) civilians to help him fulfill very important missions. That is, he and Katie Holmes (according to Radar Online) did employ a secular (non-CO$) employment agency to find a groundskeeper for their Los Angeles-based mansion a few years ago. The catch? The candidates all had to truck themselves down to the Celebrity Centre for a “personality test,” which is actually the intro to Scientology. Here are the details:

Tom Cruise

When Tom Cruise and his then-wife Katie Holmes were looking to hire a new estate manager for their swanky Bel Air mansion, prospective staffers had to undergo rigorous testing at the Scientology Celebrity Center in Los Angeles, a source tells exclusively.

“Tom and Katie were looking to hire a new estate manager a few years back,” the source tells Radar. “They were using a high end Los Angeles employment agency that a lot of A-list celebrities use to hire staff. After going through the first round of interviews with the agency, applicants then had to take a multiple choice test at the Scientology Celebrity Center. The majority of the potential hires weren’t Scientologists, but it was testing only and didn’t involve any auditing.

“The test took an entire afternoon and included questions such as ‘if you saw a car stuck on the train tracks with people inside, and a train approaching, what would you do?’ The questions were just odd to say the least. Another section of the test dealt with math questions. It was a very rigorous, stressful and grueling test.

“If an applicant passed the test they were then introduced to Tom’s mom and sisters who work for him,” the source says. “It was only after gaining the approval of Tom’s family applicants finally got to meet with Tom and Katie, and that was scheduled for a different time and day. It was a very methodical and controlled process. The entire vetting process took well over a month-and-a-half and was extremely secretive. It was like applicants were applying to work for the President of the United States, it was that intense! Background checks, references, no stone was left unturned. The pay for the estate manager of the Bel Air mansion was $90k with full medical benefits.”

Sure, the candidates weren’t “required” to be Scientologists, but these “full medical benefits” = a sh-tload of auditing sessions. This groundskeeper position was actually a CO$ recruiting tool. Everyone knows that you can’t work for Tom without being a member of the cult.

We’re not fooled, Tom. Just go ahead and play that game where you pretend to be above papping yourself with your youngest daughter in an effort to curb the countdown. You see, Tom has realized that we’re all keeping track of what he does as compared to what he pretends to do for the paps. So now he’s hiding, and the rest of us are … victorious!

    I love his clothes for the premiers.

  2. AlexandraJane says:

    So when was the last time he saw Suri? Was it Thanksgiving? I lost track…

    • V4Real says:

      Your question just reminded me of something. I read somewhere that when Tom and Nicole divorced Nicole didn’t spend a lot of time with her two adopted kids and once she married Keith Urban she rarely had any contact with them. Tom was the one who had primary custody and took care of them. On one of the shows like “ET” it was said that if one of his kids called during filming he would stop production to take the call. If this is true I’m wondering why is he having such little contact with Suri. Also if Nicole did distance herself from her children, shame on her. What a deadbeat mom.

      • Veruca says:

        As per Scientology rules, since he retained custody, she was declared a “Suppressive Person” (SP).

        As such, she is allowed no access to the children. They were also no longer allowed to refer to her as “Mom”.

        Since he’s the Tater Tot of Evil, I’ll give her a pass. He probably threatened more than her career. Ask Shelley Miscaviage.

        Oh, that’s right. No one’s seen her in years…

        Oh, and supposedly, he’s done the same with Suri. Hence, the no contact since Disneyworld. We’ll see what happens at Christmas.

      • Abra says:

        Both of those kids are devoted to COS, Kidman’s an SP now… I’m pretty sure it’s them not wanting contact with her.

      • V4Real says:

        Thanks for answering; I was curious about that? But still, those are her kids, scientology or not, how could she just cut off all contact? That’s an unacceptable excuse. It makes believe the rumors that she never wanted to adopt the kids in the first place and it was all Tom’s doing. What a dispicable litle man. Unbelievable that he would let that cult turn those two kids who were fairly young at the time against their mother.

        On the other hand, why didn’t she fight to retain custody like Katie did? Perhaps there is truth to the rumor that she really didn’t want them and was forced by Tom to adopt.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        @V4Real, you don’t understand CO$ at all. I wish I could have saved my family’s story and just paste it here.

        CO$ declares you an SP and you are gone, it is like you never existed and everyone in CO$ still can never talk to you again or they will be labelled SP. And so on.

        I have members of my family I have not spoken to in years. I never will either because they have been raised in the cult and know if they were declared an SP they would be punished or kicked out and they have no education, no job skills, no money since they work 80+ hours a week for pennies an hour.

        I hope that sheds light on this. I bet TC isn’t seeing Suri as much because this time the mother is custodial and she is an SP just like Nicole was. Since Suri is with her she is either SP or still considered bad for TC because of the relationship with Katie.

        Trust me, Nicole had NO say in it.

      • gg says:

        V4Real: “Also if Nicole did distance herself from her children, shame on her. What a deadbeat mom.”

        Don’t ever assume that. There is no basis in fact whatsoever. What you’re spouting is a bunch of vague rumors I’ve never even heard and I read gossip columns. SHE didn’t cut off contact and nobody can break through the ThoughtPolice of the Cult. They have squads of people doing nothing but tracking SPs, bugging everybody’s phones and other covert surveillance, making damn sure they keep control of the situation. Don’t ever underestimate the Evil of the Cult.

        Also, you contradict yourself.

      • V4Real says:

        Thanks for your explanation. Even though I am not fully conversant in scientology I do understand that the cult have an exceeding amount of power than most people would choose to believe.

        “If Nicole did distance herself from her kids; shame on her.” “IF” being the key word. Also I made that remark in my opening comment before Tiff and Veruca responded to my question.

        I read gossip sites and columns as well and know that just because you haven’t heard the rumors does not mean they don’t exist. There have been plenty of reports I had never heard of concerning certain celebrities or politicians until someone mentioned it. I believe I came across the rumors on CDAN and something called It said something like Tom wanted the kids more than Nicole being that she was still fairly young and not that invested in motherhood.

        I was familiar with SP because of the media investigative reporting on Scientology and I also saw Carmen Llywelyn interview about her exile from the group and Jason. I also learned more during the midst of Holmes/Cruise divorce.

        Scientology is a beast and it is quite possible that they along with Tom turned those kids against their mother. But it didn’t happen overnight. I’m sure at that age the kids didn’t quite understand what a sociopath was and it took time to poison their minds. Here’s the reason I said I was more incline to believe the rumor. Both children were under the age of 10 when Cruise and Kidman divorced. If Kidman had went to court to fight for custody and the judge had ruled in her favor then perhaps Cruise and his camp wouldn’t have had enough time to turn the kids against their mother. But I don’t recall any news about her attempting to fight Tom on custody. That’s the reason Nicole looked suspect to me. Now after so many years of being raised by Tom I do believe that Scientology influenced the kids against their mother. But why not fight for them when Connor was no more than Suri’s age. Katie went for primary custody right away and was ready to do battle in court for her child. She was willing to fight the powers that be. She somehow broke through the Thought Police of the evil beings.

        Unless they threaten Nicole’s life or had something on her she didn’t want revealed I find it hard to believe that a devoted mother would just concede to letting the father have full custody. To this day you notice she never speaks of Tom or his involvement in Scientology. Could they have struck some kind of under the table deal where Tom maintained custody of Isabella and Connor?

        I know that’s only speculation on my part. I know you said not to assume but isn’t that what we do on this site. We often accept certain information about celebs without knowing if it is truth of fiction.

      • gg says:

        eh, rumors are rumors.

        But the bottom line is, at the time, you couldn’t ever win against the Cult. I will never believe Nicole did not care enough to “fight for them” as you put it. It’s a lost cause trying to get your kids back after Tom Cruise of all people has them in his clutches. The Cult would not ever let that happen and she damn well knew that.

        HOWEVER, Katie has switched it around, which is why what she did was so completely brilliant. There’s no way she could’ve accomplished that without the hindsight of what happened to Nicole and having a crack family law attorney as a father.

      • jwoolman says:

        Nicole did spend extended time with her kids after the divorce, I don’t know what sources are saying otherwise. But by a certain age, the kids have say in where they live and how long they visit- that’s where the Co$ brainwashing could be a problem. Her daughter says that they talk on the phone and I definitely saw something about a visit a while ago. I don’t think the paps follow her kids so closely that we would even know about most visits, although her son is so close to Tom and probably enjoying the heir apparent status- it wouldn’t be that surprising if he ignores his mom. But it’s wrong to say they were completely cut off. The rules are different for Tom’s kids than for the usual Co$ progeny. If they want to see their mom, they can. Lots of parental alienation went on, but they’re old enough now to make their own choices.

    • vvy says:

      Connor and Bella were told that their mom was a ‘sociopath’ and that they were to have no contact with her. This was told to the media by an actress who used to be married to Jason Lee (he starred in Vanilla Sky with Tom and stars in What About Earl) and they were both scientologists. She admitted she took part in ignoring and ousting Nicole and she’s very upset about it now that she has escaped from the cult.

    • CF98 says:

      Allegedly yes but I find it odd we didn’t see one current pic of them together given how he’s suing L&S for saying he abandoned Suri I would think a pic would shut them up.

  3. cat says:

    He looks odd here. I know I know he often does… so have you covered the fact that the readers of the Jack Reacher novel are up in arms over the casting of Cruise? I read an article in the Times (“tom laughed when asked about the fact that he was not tall or big”) last week and then read two of the books. Then went back to read the Deadline announcement of his casting and every comment was incredulous. (there were A LOT.) Then I watched a trailer which features him talking in this thin, non charismatic, not tough guy voice as if he is supposed to be tough. Which is what the books are all about. The author said, well, it’s hard to get a movie made in Hollywood without a big star and how many tall, hefty big stars are there…. Anyway, it’s going to be so Tom Cruise vs. what the book was. he just has a signature way of acting for these roles now (knight and day it was in there, and of course, mission impossible…). oh well.

  4. Mia 4S says:

    He was wearing an insane amount of make up at the London premiere and he does look odd. No time for a *cough* touch up?

  5. Amelia says:

    What’s the betting the girl is either a call girl or a Xenu robot to make Titchy Tom look more manly?
    Ahaa, the census . . . that was a mess.
    If you didn’t take part you were issued a fine, but my household just didn’t get sent one!
    So we are officially off the grid.
    Where’s Daniel Craig when you need him?
    I was walking past the Co$ London building a while ago and some genius had actually sprayed the dollar sign on the building. Cue Xenua minions scrubbing it off Cinderella stylee.

  6. Green Is Good says:

    So where are the pictures of Tommy-Girl’s mystery cult-beard?

  7. EsmeH says:

    I find that the schoolboy haircut combined with standard prep school ensemble of v-neck sweater, patterned shirt, and jacket merely serve to call attention to his 50 years of age, and thus do not accomplish his mission to appear boyish and human.

    But then, all I see whenever I see images of TommyGirl is a nauseatingly insecure asexual control-freak megalomaniac who desperately needs the seeming adoration of a cult in order to feel loved, and who is so desperate for said (and very phony) adoration that he is all too willing to disregard their vast human rights abuses.

    At some level he absolutely knows they’d not shower him with medals and slave labor if he did not come with that which they need — insane amounts of money and publicity — and he has to be wondering when the day will come that they realize his Level Ten on the tool-meter is a liability and will begin distancing themselves.

    His insecurity is showing more and more. Will Tom go down with the ship? I think he will.

  8. Veruca says:

    *shakes head, opens mouth to speak, shakes head again*

  9. CC says:

    lol, of course he does. Tiny Tom and da ladiezzz….

  10. valleymiss says:

    I’m willing to bet that Tom feels it’s pointless to spend much t.ime with Suri…that she’s a “lost cause” if she can’t be raised under the strict “teachings” of $ci.

  11. Stuart Horsely says:

    “Tom Cruise as a new mystery lady” …

    And a new jacked face; he can’t even smile the same (not that he has anything to smile about). I smell Botox and fillers. This story doesn’t surprise me. Haven you seen the video where he says “if you don’t like Scientology, then f*ck you, just f*ck you” ?? He’s batshit, end of story.

  12. Meredith says:

    I really like working around plants and being outdoors but this is too much to ask (joining CO$, etc.) even for $90K a year and all the CA sunshine you can get.

  13. Mich says:

    These comments all seem so ‘right’ to me. Certainly what I usually see on Tom stories.

    Did anyone else notice how odd the “would you hit it” comments were on the Tom story the other day? So many dreamy “yes!” votes that I wondered if the thread was being trolled.

    • TrustMeOnThis says:

      IK,R? You couldn’t even use the usual misspelling/grammar test because even the $cibots know how to spell “yes!”

      • TrustMeOnThis says:

        That said, I actually think they have either given up on us, or that whoever used to troll here has been tossed in the hole. I sincerely hope not – realizing that that could actually happen to the people who go online and try to make $ci look popular has altered my strategy in replying to the obvious trolls.

        Now I point out that “Freeloader Debt” is NOT legally enforceable, and that NDAs they might be required to sign also may not be. And try to encourage them to get out. Because I want no part in making them suffer more, and who knows, it might make a difference to someone sometime.

    • Mich says:

      Such a good reminder! Everyone was doing that so regularly when the “Tater Tot of Evil” (thanks Veruca!!) story was so hot after Katie left him.

      Should be thrown in on all Tater Tot threads given that we never know how many cult slaves are lurking.

  14. MollyB says:

    I don’t believe Tom actually saw Suri over Thanksgiving. No way he wouldn’t call the paps. He just can’t NOT, you know? And what about all the reports of him working the entire weekend? I bet that poor kid cooled her heels in a hotel with the nanny or Tom’s sister until she could get back to Mom.

  15. hayley says:

    this jack reacher movie looks laughably awful. they play commercials on spike all the time and Tom cruise is a mess.

    • Suzy from Ontario says:

      I haven’t even read the books but the fact that he is so NOT what the character should be bothers me. He is not intimidating in any way. Not physically intimidating like the character is supposed to be (like 6’5″ with a huge chest, etc.) and he is not intimidating as a person. I just don’t find him believeably threatening which is what the character is supposedly all about. Some actors you believe they could be that badass, but not Tom Cruise. I’m sorry, he is just not that guy.

    • Ruffian9 says:

      I saw an ad/trailer for this the other day. Cruise and some dude in some place, dude is asking Cruise for ID and gets pretty insistent. Cruise asks if the dude would like to see the inside of an ambulance. I actually, literally laughed out loud. It was absurd and completely unbelievable. I just can’t buy him in any type of action role. I saw MI3 just for Renner, a smaller dude like Cruise who brings believable intensity and toughness to his roles. Cruise, to me, has become a flat out joke.

  16. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Is that even legal (making them go to the Scientology Centre and answer all these questions)? I mean, if someone else sent someone to their Catholic Church to do so… it’s just weird. He’s weird. In fact, it’s gotten to the point that I don’t even want to see movies with him in them. He makes me cringe.

  17. tricklady says:

    Ewwwww his creep factor is at 1,000,000

  18. laura says:

    Nessa palhaçada toda inocente mesmo só os filhos que foram usados por pessoas egoístas. Nicole se quisesse teria lutado pela custódia, pra mim ela nunca quis adotar por ser um casamento de fachada e não querer vínculos. Holmes, vendeu oútero por fama e alavancar carreira e Tom é gay ou assexuado. Danem-se todos.

  19. Jozie says:

    Dude looks like he’s morphing into Dennis Quaid.

  20. Kosmos says:

    I’m sure the next woman he aligns himself with will be 100% already into Scientology…he’s not taking on any more women hoping they will adjust, because this is a misleading, sick cult, folks. I can’t even see Nicole or Katie adjusting for as long as they did.
