Tom Cruise Crazy Aliens Theory Is the Least of His Problems

GossipMonger 17

Tom CruiseRemember when Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah's couch, and America started to think he was a little nutty? The way a new tell-all book from a Pulitzer Prize winning author tells it, that was one of his good days! The Tom Cruise that writer Lawrence Wright is introducing in his expose is a guy on a mission to protect us from aliens!

That's only a small portion of what Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & The Prison of Belief wants us to believe about the guy was once the hottest actor in Hollywood. And believe it or not, it's not what makes Katie Holmes and Nicole Kidman sound like the luckiest women on the planet for getting away from Tom.

A break-down of Wright's book in the New York Post this weekend revealed a guy who is said to have broken up with a girlfriend for having the audacity to suffer cramps during dinner. Naz Boniadi's menstrual moment was reportedly a disrespect to a high-ranking crazy pants Scientologist like Cruise.

And this guy has gotten three living, breathing women to marry him? I'd take the dork living in Mom's basement at 25 over the jerk who dismisses you for daring to have a period any day of the week, wouldn't you?

It's the Scientology belief that we have alien life forms within us that are trying to destroy humankind that is getting all the buzz right now because -- hello -- Tom Cruise believes we have aliens inside us, and he wants to vanquish them!

But there's crazy. Then there's cruel.

The Tom Cruise that this book is showing us is a guy who doesn't seem to have any respect for the human life he supposedly wants to protect (you know, from the aliens). Instead he comes off as a guy who treats women like chattel: auditioning wives, dumping a wife while she was pregnant (that would be Kidman who allegedly had the DNA from her miscarried fetus preserved to prove it was Tom's), and more. 

For the women in his life, this is the stuff that can be downright dangerous. And for Americans, this is the stuff that should really make us re-evaluate whether we want to watch this guy's movies. Like the racist ranting from Mel Gibson that shut down his career, these claims -- if there is truth to them of course -- really need to push Tom Cruise out of theaters.

Do you want to watch a Tom Cruise movie after reading this?

Remember when we ALL wanted to marry Tom Cruise? Katie even said she had a poster of him up in her room as a young girl. Now we all thank our lucky stars we're nowhere near him. LOL!

I don't believe things like this. People pick on him because he dares to believe that there might be more to the world than humans. But the actual scientists looking for big foot are totally ok? I don't really believe in any of that but I don't think the people that do are stupid or crazy (although some are). The world is a big mysterious place, it could happen.

I usually have no problem separating a persons private life with their professional life but I'll admit it...when Tom got very verbal about how Scientology makes him different and special,etc..jumping around,laughing like a loony for no reason on a web-cast...well, I'm sorry but it DOES make it harder for me to watch his movies and believe he is the character he's playing.(that makes sense,right?lol) Anyway, I CAN watch him in a movie but the whole time I'm watching it, in the back of my mind I have 'crazy tom cruise' footage playing over and over and over... lol.

Never liked him in the beginning, and still don't--the whack-job revelations don't surprise me--must have felt something was "off."

I haven't watch a movie that he has been in since he jumped on Oprah's couch.  I actually can't stand to see him at all.


Never watched before I read this. Can't stand him!

I lost all respect for him when he suddenly served Nicole with divorce papers. While I suspect that the movie "Eyes Wide Shut" and her nude Broadway performance may have been the catalyst, it was just a lousey and cowardly thing to do.  I stopped watching any movies Cruise was in at that point.  Then karma bitch slapped him in the face when Katie did the same thing to Cruise that he did to Nicole.   From all the reports that have surfaced, he is a controlling SOB.  I pity the next woman who gets involved because she has been for warned.

I stopped watching movies with Tom Cruise years and years ago. Long before the couch incident. In interviews he always came across as having this monster ego. It was hard to get past in the movies.

I will occasionally watch Tom Cruise's movies, but my boyfriend refuses because he doesn't want Scientology to benefit from his hard earned money. He's done a lot of research into Scientology and it's pretty eye opening when you learn about them.

I have a HUGE problem with Scientology and their belief that psychiatry is evil. They're also a pyramid scheme. You have to buy your way into it. The higher ranking members, such as Cruise, benefit financially from lower ranking members. It's not a harmless little religion. People should educate themselves about it and listen to what former members have to say about their hard earned freedom. Scary, scary stuff!

I've never been a fan, personally. His public bullying of Brooke Shields over her confession of suffering severe and traumatic PPD, and medicating herself for it, made me want to punch him right in his throat, repeatedly.
