Tom Cruise tried to convince his former girlfriend Penelope Cruz to convert from being a Buddhist to Scientology, a new report claims. The actor and the former model were said to have become very close to another; their relationship was going great, but it wasn’t until Tom started pressurizing her to change to Scientology that things went down the drain.
The 50-year old needed to convince Penelope that her beliefs as a Buddhist were wrong and the only way he was able to do that was to get the Church leader David Miscavige on board. Cruise said at the time that he could no longer date a woman that wouldn’t want to be part of Scientology, it was said during a recent documentary on Channel 4 in Britain, titled ‘Scientologists at War’.
Mark Rathbun shared his own experience on having joined Scientology and how he formed a close bond with Tom in the early years. According to him, several people at the church started talking about how Cruz was a buddhist and that it would be a sham to what they believed in; Cruz was their go-to guy who would splash millions of dollars on whatever they needed. They couldn’t tell him what to do, but they pushed him to make him see sense.
