Tom Cruise makes Katie Holmes write him weekly confessions

tom cruise valkyrie 040209

If I had a dollar for every article I’d written that started out with some version of “Poor Katie Holmes,” I could… well I could buy a pizza. Which still means I’ve devoted about 25 articles (plus tip) to how badly I feel for autobot Katie. As if her life couldn’t get anymore stifling, according to the Daily Mail she and husband Tom Cruise have a marriage contract. And part of that contract stipulates that she must tell him absolutely every single thing she does, whether big or small. And each week, she has to write down a detailed list of confessions for anything she’s forgotten to tell Tom about.

Katie Holmes may be coming to the end of her Purification Rundown diet, but it seems she isn’t stopping there with her commitment to Scientology.

I can reveal that the 30-year-old actress resolves problems with her husband Tom Cruise by making weekly written confessions, as laid out in the Scientology code.

‘Katie has to confess to something as minor as forgetting to tell him she has met with a friend,’ says a source.

‘If she commits a transgression against the moral code of their marriage, she has to tell Tom in writing, giving full details of the time and place and what happened.’

[From the Daily Mail]

The Daily Mail certainly is one of those “grain of salt” sources. But there’s little I won’t believe about Tom Cruise. And he’s certainly controlling that none of this seems out of the realm of possibility. At some point when you hear the same sort of gossip repeated over and over again, you have to figure there’s some truth in it. Never do you hear anyone deny that Tom’s a control freak.

Recent examples: Tom required interviewers to like Valkyrie before he’d talk to them, he controls all contact between Nicole Kidman and their kids, and he’s tried to push her friends – even famous ones like Victoria Beckham – out of Katie’s life. It doesn’t seem far-fetched that he makes Katie account for her every movement. He’s probably working on a way to record her thoughts. Then Tom will finally have his perfect robot.

  3. Arvedia says:

    LOL! Small wonder she looks so drained. I don´t pity her too much because she knew what she was getting into – the whole world knew it! And isn´t there something called divorce?

  4. Beth says:

    I think she will leave him eventually. Either that or something tragic will happen. I believe that while we have no idea what the truth is, she is significantly less perky and looks so gaunt since they were married. It’s sad.

  5. Orangejulius says:

    He actually allowed her to wear a skirt that short? I don’t think she had a clue just how bad it would be.

  6. Sauronsarmy says:

    Ew he looks like a guido in that last picture.

  7. Christina says:

    can this really be true? it’s so bizarre…

  8. anna says:

    I totally believe this.

    Part of being involved w/ Scientologists is confessing all sorts of embarassing things on record, to be used against you if you dare speak out about the “church” and/or its followers. It’s a pr control mechanism.

  9. anastasiabeaverhausen says:


    Ok that being said, what’s up with that dress of fug in the header pic? Why is her body bowed out so strangely? Where did her chest go?

    Gah. These two totally creep me out. Used to just be him, but now I’m creeped out by her vacant eyes, too.

  10. mihaela says:

    I’m not a Tom Cruise fan and I think Katie Holmes is really an opportunist for marrying him. So, it’s not that I defend the movie stars I love no matter what.
    But.. really, her eyes are not vacant.. Just look at the first photo.. they seem quite alive.
    And she is gaunt, I guess, because she is obsessed with being thin as many Hollywood stars are..

  12. JMC says:

    It’s sad- no matter how much they love one another, Tom will always choose Scientology. It’s like he’s addicted to a drug–and Katie would do well to drop him until he goes to rehab!

  13. Lem says:

    hard call. one the one hand I don’t think Katie’s a shrinking violet or whatever the expression is. One the other hand few people’s personalities go a complete 180 in a few short years.
    IF she has to make confessions I hope she lies.
    I just wish we would have one good interview where you could actually see Katie. I think that’s where all this controlling gossip comes from. You just don’t see HER anymore.
    Maybe it’s nothing more than that girlfriend of yours who liked metal last week and loves country this week; depending on which boyfriend she has. We’ve all had the girlfriend who changes her wardrobe and vocabulary and interests for a man. I’ve never seen it so consuming though. I just can’t see any of “joey” left in there.
    For those who say she knew what she was getting into… if you buy into all the conspiracy and the baby’s daddy drama and the millions per year contract. I don’t see how she could see this total uh, totalness coming. It was all so swift and sudden. Now it seems, beyond imagination.

  14. Lem says:

    For the record I was anti-tom before anti-tom was cool. lol
    Poor girl at the very least needs a vacation from him and for god’s sake let go of her hand, she’s a grown ass woman who is perfectly capable of negotiating a sidewalk w/o midget help

  15. Codzilla says:

    That atrocious dress in the header pic needs some push-up action. Makes her chest look 90 years old.

  16. andy says:

    The most worrying thing about this story is that i’m not at all surprised by it and i’m sure many other people feel the same way!

  17. Feebee says:

    As much as it sounds unbelievable, it’s probably more truth than lie.

    Poor Katie, even when she makes an effort to wear something dazzling, it ends up wearing her. The header pic has her looking happy… as happy as she looks nowadays anyway.

  18. orion70 says:

    ditto @ Lem. I have not been able to tolerate this guy since “Rainman”. And I have seen that right/right hand-holding with them before and it just looks too damn weird. Everything else aside, these two have got some fugged up body language, which says alot.

  19. anna says:

    @lisa – she’s tall! she wouldn’t be able to balance w/ wee tootsies.

    (from someone also affected w/ deux grandes pieds)

  20. texasmom says:

    Does HE have to confess everything to HER?

  21. Anon says:

    This is standard operating procedure in the Cult of Scientology. They use “KR’s” or Knowledge Reports to write-up your own or another’s “crimes”. They are then given to the Ethics division where the individual is put through security checks (“sec checks”) and other nefarious handling (how about a “gang bang sec check”, just imagine how “fun” that is! Not.); cult members are encouraged to report each others transgressions a la Orwell’s “1984.” Member’s report on each other, children report on parents, parents turn in their children…It’s quite the ‘religion’, no?

    Don’t believe me? Find out for yourself! Visit or Google Operation Snow White or Fair Game. Read Time Magazines expose “The Cult of Greed and Power” at,9171,972865,00.html.

    Scientology: Its WORSE than you think!

  22. lisa says:

    @anna I think it is how they are photographed in the last pic.

  23. tasteT says:

    She reminds me of a “Stepford wife”.

    her feet look like 12′s dang!!

    no amount of money in the world, its not worth it..SMH

  24. boomchakaboom says:

    They never have that eye contact with each other or spontaneous physical contact anymore. All that is reflected in photographs is their individual ‘look’, not one sign of even half ass affection between them, or personal interaction of any kind. That’s what makes them so kinda creepy to me.

  25. Bodhi says:

    I never really gave a shit about Tom, but I was anti-Kat(ie) WAY back in the day. That being said, I do feel bad for her… sorta. I just wish there wasn’t a kiddo involved…

  26. Lina says:

    I should really look into getting one of those “Free Katie” shirts because surely that will be one item in my closet that will never go out of style.

  27. Zoe says:

    I agree Bodhi, it’s Suri that makes this so sad.

    and as Texasmom said, does he report to her as well?

    ‘Contracts’ usually work both ways. Do we know for sure it’s so one-sided?

    BTW, I just watched TC in Tropic Thunder and he was hilarious. Most of the ideas for his character came from him as well. How can he be so apparently creepy and humorless in real life and then come up with this great comedy? It’s so surprising.

  28. pippipcheerio says:

    Of course Katie will never leave him, she’d never see Suri again without permission from Tiny Tom.

  29. moon unit says:

    Go ‘head Tom, make Katie-bot work hard for your, I mean her, money!

  30. sissoucat says:

    That’s psychological violence folks. Nothing else.

    She’s not battered a la Rihanna, but I bet she’s not feeling much better inside. And since it’s for the cult, she probably doesn’t even see it as a violence.

    Poor Katie, poor Suri. She’ll grow up as an abusee or an abuser. Sad.

  31. snappyfish says:

    I am guessing she thought “hmmm, I will marry this guy and I will end up with an oscar too!!” Not realizing that she got him at advancing age. He is a much higher level of jerk (OT 7 or some crap)then he was when he married Kidman.

    I find it interesting that he still controls all contact with kidman and the first two kids, as they have become all but invisible since Suri showed up.

    She married for career and money…this is what you get. She should have stayed with Chris Klein but I am guessing that is what she ‘writes’ in her confessions every week.

  32. someone says:

    The way Tom is constantly holding on to her, I wonder if he thinks hes fooling anyone???I don’t think theres a lot of emotion between these two..except for thier apparent love for Suri, who IMO is a really cute kid. I think he hangs on to Katie so she can have another kid for him, and she stays with Tom because she will never see Suri again if she leaves.

  33. PJ says:

    It’s disturbing how her look has transformed from casual, all-American girl to stick-thin high-fashion model. She seemed a lot more real when she was pregnant and in jeans.

    Yet Katie is showing some independence by going off on her own to pursue her career. The Broadway play was very demanding, and now she’s back in New York again filming. Note that Tom isn’t spending a lot of time in New York with her. She’s the one who’s had to fly the red-eye for quick trips to LA to be with him.

  34. pebbles says:

    Don’t pity her too much….remember, she was just a two-bit tv actress…then she married Tom Cruise and wow! immediate attention, and yes, ridicule. I don’t feel sorry for her – she knew what she was doing.

  35. unknown says:

    Is he God or something? Why would she have to confess to him>? I would bet my savings on it. Katie isn’t happy. How could she possibly be? Tom is so controlling.

    “BTW, I just watched TC in Tropic Thunder and he was hilarious. Most of the ideas for his character came from him as well. How can he be so apparently creepy and humorless in real life and then come up with this great comedy? It’s so surprising.”

    Usually that degree of duality of character is associated with either multiple identity disorder, which can probably be ruled out, or sociopathic type a personality, which we have no proof of. In order to prove or disprove Tom would have to have a psych evaluation done.
