Tom Cruise's Scary Scientology Wife-Hunt Story CONFIRMED By Director Paul Haggis

| Filed under: Tom CruiseLove LineNicole KidmanKatie Holmes

Nazanin Boniadi Tom Cruise Scientology wife set up

Xenu give us strength!

The newest batch of Tom Cruise/Scientology craziness recently unsurfaced by Vanity Fair is 100% true — according to acclaimed writer/producer/director Paul Haggis!

Haggis — who used to be a super serious Scientologist until he left the church in 2010 — reveals that the church DID indeed hold a wife-hunt to find Cruise the perfect post-Nicole Kidman bride, aaaand that Nazanin Boniadi was offered the role before it was given to Katie Holmes!

Both Paul and the magazine claim the church did some pret-tay creep-ay things to Boniadi while they groomed to her be the next Mrs. Cruise. THEN when she was declared "unsuitable," Tom and Xenu banished her to Florida, where she had to scrub toilets and clean bathroom tiles with a toothbrush, dig ditches in the middle of the night, and sell Ron Hubbard's Dianetics on street corners!

Like most sane rational people, Haggis thought Nazanin was treated less than fairly. He confesses:

"I was deeply disturbed by how the highest ranking members of a church could so easily justify using one of their members; how they so callously punished her and then so effectively silenced her when it was done. It wasn’t just the threats; they actually made her feel ashamed, when all she had been was human and trusting."

By "human and trusting" Paul is referring to Nazanin breaking her confidentiality agreement by telling a pal about her short relationship with Tommy — something the church found unforgivable.

Paul says the Iranian-born actress has since escaped left the cult church and has started a new life. The director says Nazanin is currently:

"A terrific actress at the beginning of a very promising career, she is a dedicated human rights activist and a truly lovely and caring person. The last thing she wanted or needed is this kind of publicity, but here it is, and I am sure she will deal with it with the same grace and dignity she exudes in her daily life."

Sounds like she and Ms Holmes have a LOT in common!

We are still totally creeped out (and not very surprised) by this wife-casting story, but are glad to hear the actress is out of it.

We wish Nazanin the best in her new Scientology-free life.

Hopefully, she has a lot of pals keeping an eye on her. We hear the church does NOT take kindly to ex-memebers revealing their secrets!

    This will make quite a movie some day! In the meantime - where is the documentary expose??? That would be fascinating. I hope someone has infiltrated and is doing research from the inside!

    Some disgruntled members and one mistress dumped out of relationship suddenly surface after the divorce. Well, what do you know. There is money to this garbage news nowadays. Paul Haggis had an affair with that Boniadi looks like.

    Haggis is a gay who can't hold on Tom's dick.

    In all fairness many couples in the united states in various cultures still have arranged marriages. While this is definitely odd and his belief system is definitely weird as hell, I guess he can do whatever he wants. Not really any of our business.

    Haggis is acclaimed? He hasn't had a hit in several years. This is a case of an angry man being a low-life opportunist; he's rather like you, Perez. It's what YOU do for a living. I have no use for any organized religion, but I require more than some guy's word on something like this. When he can prevent evidence, then I'll listen. Until then, he should STFU. As for YOU, Mario, you sell ad space to the Scientologists. This makes you a back-stabbing hypocrite.

    We had arranged marriage in India too. Does that make us cult too? What's wrong with this Tom haters. Why can't they just leave the man alone?

    Exactly. I agree, leave him and his religion alone already.

    Who will be in love with that Iranian fanatic who scrubs nuclear-fueled toilet? If Ahmadinejad confirmed this himself than that hermaphroditic Haggis, I'll believe!

    Why isn't Scientology's $10 Million-A-Pop Matchmaking Service working?

    Does Tom get a refund?

    Ewwwwwww! Very creepy!

    it is a shame that a cult so big and in the news daily could actually feel they have the right to choose someones wife and if he takes her he is as crazy as any cult leader who apparently he is (the leader) another Jim Jones and creepy. Its to bad his fame has gone so far up his @#$ that he thinks of himself as some kind of God who can't be bothered with choosing his own wife thank god Katie got the heck out of their hopefully she can keep her daughter away from him

    Tom, marry me. I'll be perfect wife for you. I'll take care of your kids. I've no ambition to be a star like your exes. Just plain housewife supporting you since you provide all the needs and wants anyway.

    Church of Scientology David Miscavige denies every truth that is revealed to cover up their crimes.
    VF mag has written about Tom Cruise's and was the first mag gave Tom Cruise over 30 pages of article when Suri was still an infant, in the past. Neither Tom Cruise nor his cult ever denied any of those "positive" article. Now that VF mag writes truth about Tom's creepy and criminal set up where Nazanin Boniadi was a target, all of the sudden Tom's rep and his cult are attacking VF mag and denying every part of that truth?
    It doesn't make sense.
    What church would use its member, lies to them in order to please its celeb?
    What church would punish its member when she starts questioning their crimes.
    Obviously, Scientology is a CULT!

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – i guess when you write and direct a film that goes on to win the best picture oscar some people might consider that an acclaimed achevement. oh well to each their own.
    "When he can prevent evidence, then I'll listen." didn't you mean to say "present evidence?" and obviously you did listen, or at least read what he had to say other wise you wouldn't have had a reason to leave another one of your daily ridiculous comments.
