Holmes: "I Won't Wed Until After Birth"

29 December 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

First Daughter star Katie Holmes has rubbished rumours she is desperate to wed Tom Cruise before she gives birth to their child next year. The 26-year-old, who accepted the Mission: Impossible star's marriage proposal on June 17, insists she has no intention of walking down the aisle while pregnant - because she wants to look her best on her wedding day. She says, "All these rumors that we're getting married this week or next, they're just not true. I won't be waddling into my wedding with a big bump." »

Cruise's Visit to Secret Scientology Compound

21 December 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tom Cruise's devotion to Scientology was reportedly nurtured at a low-key southern California desert compound which catered to his needs 24 hours a day. The Mission: Impossible star undertook intensive study and counseling at the compound in the late 1980s and early 1990s, according to the Los Angeles Times newspaper. Behind the guarded gates of the 500-acre compound near Hemet, Cruise had a personal supervisor to oversee his studies in a private course room, claim former members. Bruce Hines, who left Scientology in 2001 after three decades in the church, tells the publication, "I was there for eight years and nobody stayed long at all, except for Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman during that period." The ex-church members say Cruise stayed in a bungalow near a golf course and had a special staff to prepare his meals, do his laundry and handle other tasks around the clock. »

Legal Threats for Spoof Cruise/Scientology Site

18 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A website satirizing Tom Cruise's affiliation to the Church of Scientology through spoof videos and commentary could face closure as religious officials threaten legal action. ScienTomogy.info has been bombarded by complaints from leaders of the controversial religion, which is championed by Tom Cruise and a string of other celebrities including John Travolta and Katie Holmes. In particular, recent postings on the New Zealand-based website threaten court action for copyright infringement of the domain name. Gossip website The Scoop reports a legal letter sent to ScienTomogy web creators which reads, "You are hereby on notice that the registration and use of this domain name in this fashion has caused your name to be falsely associated with our client's registered mark, Scientology. The fact that you have changed one letter ("m" instead of "l") does not protect you from trademark infringement." The site - which ridicules the Mission Impossible star's devotion to the religion and recent engagement to Katie Holmes with unflattering archive television footage, spoof videos and cartoons - responds, "The site is purely satirical and is for entertainment. It contains no fact nor claims to do so and is completely non-commercial. The site clearly states in its header, 'This site has absolutely no connection whatsoever with the Church of Scientology, it's affiliated organizations or, needless-to-say, Tom Cruise.' It is designed for commentary and criticism within the limits of Free Speech." »

Danza Slams Cruise

7 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Taxi star Tony Danza is far from impressed with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' baby news - because they're having a child out of wedlock. The Hollywood couple, who became engaged in June after two months of dating, announced they're expecting their first child together on Wednesday. Danza is bemused by Cruise's behavior and believes his recent attack on Brooke Shields' decision to take medication for her postpartum depression was hypocritical considering the Mission: Impossible star is now living his own life with questionable morality. The talk show host says, "I'm a little upset about this. Here's a guy out there lecturing people about drugs, but out of wedlock births don't seem to bother him. He's never (appearing on) my show, so it doesn't matter." He adds, "I'm happy for them, but we're going to send them to Maury Povich's show for a DNA test." »

Cruise Infuriated by Fake Lecture Posting

29 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mission: Impossible star Tom Cruise is furious, after learning of a fake press release heralding his plans to lecture on the evils of psychiatry. Among the reputed topics that the star was falsely said to be touching upon at his religion's Scientology Celebrity Center headquarters in Los Angeles next month, were, "How Psychiatry Invented Schizophrenia" and "Handling Sexual DisOrientation". But Cruise's attorney Bert Fields, says he plans to track down whoever is behind the fake release, telling Radar Online, "It's totally phony. Tom is not giving any lectures... In my view, it's forgery, wire fraud and, apparently, committed on an interstate basis. You could tell from looking at the names of the supposed lectures that it's nothing that comes from Tom. You know, 'Out of the Closet and into the Auditing Room' is not something Tom is going to put as the name of a lecture. He's not, in fact, giving any lectures. If he did I would sell tickets." Cruise sparked controversy earlier this year, when he attacked Brooke Shields for taking medicated drugs to help her through her postpartum depression. »

Cruise's 'Oprah' Moment Spawns New Term

8 August 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tom Cruise's chair dancing antics on Oprah Winfrey's chat show have made such an impact on pop culture that "jumping the couch" has now become a well-used phrase. The Mission: Impossible star became the focus of relentless mockery in May, after jumping on Winfrey's couch and punching the air while yelling about his love for Katie Holmes. And the moment has now spawned a term, which was recently added to website UrbanDictionary.com. The definition of the term jump the couch reads: "The defining moment when you know someone has gone off the deep end. Inspired by Tom Cruise's behavior on Oprah. Sample usage: 'My new boyfriend Benny... jumped the couch and started rubbing spicy brown mustard on his body at my family reunion.'" »

Cruise "Tried To Convert Johansson"

21 June 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Scarlett Johansson pulled out of appearing in the second Mission: Impossible sequel after Tom Cruise tried to convert her to scientology, according to reports. Cruise, who produces the action adventures, met with Johansson ahead of casting for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 3 and took her to one of the controversial religion's headquarters, claims Radarmagazine.Com. A source tells the website, "After two hours of proselytizing, Cruise opened a door to reveal a second room full of upper-level Scientologists who had been waiting to dine with the pair, at which point the cool-headed ingénue politely excused herself." Officially Johansson quit the film because of scheduling conflicts after the film was delayed so Cruise could make War Of The Worlds. »

Lohan Performs Cruise-Inspired Couch Dance

19 June 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Herbie: Fully Loaded star Lindsay Lohan followed in Tom Cruise's footsteps on Thursday night - by leaping onto a couch halfway through her TV interview. Mission: Impossible star Cruise raised eyebrows last month, when he jumped up and down on Oprah Winfrey's couch as he repeatedly yelled he was in love with Katie Holmes. While his antics made him the target of teasing at the hands of comedians across America, Cruise went on to repeat his actions when he appeared on Leno's chat show. And while Lohan, 18, insists she's yet to find love since splitting with Wilmer Valderrama, she decided to continue the trend when she arrived on Leno's show. When the funnyman asked her if she was in love, Lohan responded, "No, but I was watching the show the other day and I saw Tom Cruise and I know he's in love. So in honor of Tom Cruise, for everyone who's not in love, I'm gonna pull a Tom!" She then proceeded to jump on the couch, as the audience cheered her on. After composing herself, she explained, "I love Tom Cruise, but I just had to do it. Also for Dean, my security guard." Cruise announced his engagement to Holmes on Friday. »

Cruise Mocks His Oprah Moment

10 June 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tom Cruise expressed his love for new girlfriend Katie Holmes once again Wednesday night, by repeating the couch-jumping antics he displayed on Oprah Winfrey's chat show. Last month , Cruise, 42, stunned fans when he celebrated his new romance with 26-year-old Holmes by leaping up and down on Winfrey's couch, repeatedly shouting that he was "in love". And while the incident made Cruise the target of mockery at the hands of numerous comedians, the Mission: Impossible star poked fun at himself when he appeared on Jay Leno's Tonight Show, telling the funnyman, "When I start to think about her, things happen. So, cease talking." The audience then whooped with delight as Cruise climbed up on Leno's couch and stood on it, victoriously raising both hands into the air. After Leno admitted Cruise's behavior was at the "silliest" he'd ever seen, the actor added, "It's a thing that I wish for everyone. I like hearing good news and I like hearing about people when they're happy... She's a terrific lady and great lady." And Holmes is "proud" of her beau's latest antics, cooing Thursday morning, "I'm so happy. I watched Leno last night and I was, like, blushing and so happy and excited. I'm so proud. I love him. I love his outfit, too!" »

Marriage Counseling Wasn't an Option for Cruise & Kidman

26 May 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman didn't consider marriage counseling to save their relationship - because the movie hunk's Scientology beliefs forbid such forms of "psychiatry". The couple shocked Hollywood when they split in February 2001 after almost 10 years of marriage, and now, in an exclusive interview with TV show Access Hollywood, Cruise reveals there was no way of working things out once he decided it was over. He says, "They say, 'Hey, promiscuity is part of marriage, it's OK.' You have this whole thing going out there." Cruise insists even the church's own counseling schemes wouldn't have worked for him and Kidman, but refuses to go into details about why they split up. He adds, "There is marriage counseling in scientology that we apply that actually helps to put people back into communication with one another." Meanwhile, the Mission: Impossible star used the interview on the show to praise his Catholic ex-wife for allowing him to follow his Scientology beliefs, and let their adopted kids join the church, even though she never became a member herself. He explains, "Nic and I are doing a great job raising our children because, right from the beginning, the thing that I do admire about Nic is the respect of someone else's beliefs. She's not a bigot." »

20 May 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tom Cruise doesn't care what fans think about his new romance with Katie Holmes because he thinks she's "an exceptional woman". The couple announced their romance in Italy earlier this month, prompting skeptics to question the validity of the match. Many still feel the romance is a scam to help promote the couple's blockbuster summer movies War Of The Worlds and Batman Begins. But Cruise chooses to ignore the doubters: "When I make a move like that, I'm saying, 'This is my woman.' People are gonna do what they're gonna do. You can't think in terms of what are people gonna do or gonna say... I want to share my life this woman, this woman is exceptional, she's special, she's extraordinary and I have great respect for her. I've got nothing to hide, I'm happy... She is something else." And Cruise even has an answer for those who think Holmes, at 26, is too young for the Mission: Impossible star, 42. He quips, "I'm concerned whether someone can keep up with me. I've got a fast life, I've got a lot going on." »
