How desparate do you have to be to audition a wife? Apparently Tom Cruise stooped that low before he wed Katie Holmes.
According to former Scientologist Marc Headley, who used to create films for the whacky religion, Tom had trouble meeting women after his split with Penelope Cruz. So, Tom’s closest friend David Miscavige devised a scheme to get some of Hollywood’s leading ladies in. A casting call was sent out saying, “There’s an upcoming Tom Cruise movie you might get a part in. Come for an audition.” The requirements? She had to be single, pretty, and in her twenties.
So, Tom refused the female Scientologists like Erika Christensen and Sofia Milos. They weren’t star enough. Instead, he wanted Jennifer Garner, then Scarlett Johansson, and finally Jessica Alba. After Jen and Jess refused, Scarlett was freaked out by the religion. Finally, Katie “audtioned”, and she won the part.
