And here you thought our favorite action star just saved lives in Mission: Impossible sequels!
When Australian billionaire James Packer was at his lowest — his marriage was failing and his cellphone company was hemorraging millions — it was Scientology and the organization's unofficial celebrity spokesperson who helped drag him thru a rough patch!
James took part in a candid interview Down Under last night, and he spoke about how Tom Cruise helped change his life for the better.
“When I was at my lowest, Tom Cruise reached out to me. He believed in me when other people didn’t… I’d met him once or twice…and he was in Australia and we got together. I think he could tell that I was in pain. He invited me to go to his house to go skiing with him at Christmas.”
Whoa! We wouldn't have guessed Xenu, a pair of skiis, and the star of Risky Business could pull anyone out of a funk, but we were wrong!
This is the same Aussie tycoon, mind you, who went jet skiing with Russell Crowe last year! Maybe he has a fetish for extreme sports and celebrity culture?
What's next? Hang gliding with Tom Hanks?! LOLz!!
Honestly, we're just happy James is in a better place!
