Who’s the next lucky lady to steal Tom Cruise’s heart? Will she be a fellow scientologist? Speaking of which… what exactly happens behind the doors of Scientology? What are celebs like Mr. Cruise and John Travolta so intrigued by? Well, perhaps the institution isn’t so appealing after all.
According to Vulture.com, back in 2004, thirty-two-year-old Nazanin Boniadi, who has starred in major hit television series like How I Met Your Mother and Suits, was intimately involved with Cruise. Supposedly, she was set up with him by the Church. (Katie, did you know about this?) Things seemed just peachy, and why wouldn’t they with a full-floor suite in the Trump Tower in New York and ice skating at Rockefeller Center?
I guess cupid failed at this one. After some “offensive” remarks made by Boniadi, the couple split, and Boniadi was reprimanded for dishing the deets about her former love to a friend. The Church of Scientology denied claims of making the actress “scrub toilets with a toothbrush, scour bathroom tiles with acid, and dig ditches after dark.”
Paul Haggis, an Oscar winner and good friend of Boniadi, told Showbiz 411 that indeed, the story is true. Yes, Scientology attempted to set the two stars up, and yes, Scientology put Boniadi to shame after her break-up with Cruise.
So for all you single ladies eyeing Cruise, maybe this mission isn’t so impossible. Just join the Church of Scientology, go along on all of the fancy dates, zip your lips, and you’re good to go!
