Leaders of the religion of which he is a devout follower have stated that Tom Cruise is in basically their version of Jesus Christ. From The Sun Online:
A source close to the actor, who has risen to one of the church’s top levels, said: “Tom has been told he is Scientology’s Christ-like figure.
“Like Christ, he’s been criticised for his views. But future generations will realise he was right.”
I hope this invokes more couch-jumping. I rather miss that.
