    Tom Cruise Angry About Katie Holmes, Jamie Foxx "Secret Wedding" Is Fake News

    By Andrew Shuster, Gossip Cop


    A new tabloid report alleges that Tom Cruise is angry about Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx planning a “secret wedding” in Paris, but the story is completely false. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this fake news.

    The latest issue of the National Enquirer claims Holmes and Foxx will soon elope in Paris, just blocks away from where her ex-husband was shooting his latest Mission: Impossible movie. A supposed “source” tells the magazine that Cruise “went absolutely nuts” when he heard about the alleged nuptials, adding, “The fact that Katie has been sneaking around with Jamie for years behind his back is insulting enough. But to try and exchange vows in the most romantic city in the world – when Tom was there – is beyond low.”

    The magazine’s seemingly phony source goes on to purport that Cruise “can’t believe they’d rub his face in it so badly” and is “refusing to let this go.” The “insider” also alleges the actor hates that Foxx has been “playing daddy” to his 11-year-old daughter Suri, and is plotting with fellow Scientology members to “try and ruin Jamie.” Gossip Cop, however, looked into the publication’s tale, and it’s all simply untrue.

    A rep for Holmes exclusively assures us there’s no truth to the tabloid’s marriage claims, and a rep for Foxx also tells us the actor is simply “not getting married.” A trustworthy source close to Cruise similarly assures us he’s not upset about a nonexistent wedding. Unfortunately, the Enquirer has created an ongoing phony saga about all those involved in this bogus story, so this latest piece of fiction isn’t surprising.

    Gossip Cop recently called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that Foxx was adopting Holmes’ daughter Suri. Shortly before that, we busted the tabloid for falsely claiming that Holmes was preparing to “tell all” about her marriage to Cruise. This latest article is equally inaccurate.

  3. Those kind of field days are good if they can wind up Tom Cruise enough for him to go nuts, or do I mean nuttier ? In Tom Cruise's case he's batshit crazy anyway and anything that upsets him fake news or not is good enough for me.

    Chances are that specific piece of fake news was in all likelihood written to do just that.
    It worked.
    Win win win.
    And more win.

    The article mentioned in the above photo isn't online, but it's mentioned in the Toronto Star. Quote:


    Cover: Scientology has for years auditioned women to be Tom Cruise’s wife, but when one contender opened a back-channel to church boss David Miscavige, Cruise gave her the boot from his compound. Wait a minute: Is this where they got the idea for The Bachelor? Isn’t this the best idea for the best-rated Bachelor season of all time?

    The Mummy Reviews Are Out ... and They Are Vicious! | The Hollywood Gossip


    The first thing about this film that made us cringe, months ago, was Tom Cruise starring in it. He just isn't likable. Sure, plenty of his characters are likable, be himself isn't.

    He's Scientology's golden boy and he also tends to come across as bonkers.

    And while he looks great for his age, he's no longer in a place where he can rely on his looks to carry him. At least, not with younger crowds who lack very specific daddy issues.

    There's also the running joke about how Tom Cruise is "always running from things" in movies. There's a ridicule factor.

    Well, the reviewers had a lot to say.

    The Mummy Review #2: Tom Cruise Sinks in This Joyless Disaster | Movieweb


    The most important goal of The Mummy is to establish the groundwork for the upcoming Dark Universe films. We are introduced to Prodigium, a secret organization that battles monsters. Its leader is Dr. Jekyll (Russell Crowe). This character will be the thread that ties the franchise together. Once again, the setup is unimpressive. I was completely underwhelmed by Crowe as Jekyll, and his monster turn into the evil Mr. Hyde. This scene should have been a highlight, but is unremarkable. What's even more interesting is the comparison between Cruise and Crowe. Crowe, who is a year younger than Cruise, looks the part. Cruise continues to be an ageless wonder. Scientology might be working in Cruise's favor, the introduction of Prodigium in this film does not.

    Tom Cruise in ‘The Mummy’ May Be the Weirdest Choice of His Career | IndieWire

    The Mummy (2017) | Rotten Tomatoes

    Here are some of the movie critics' reviews:

    It's amazingly relentless in its naked borrowing from other, better horror and sci-fi movies.
    Glenn Kenny

    The movie is a pain in the sarcophagus. I fear that it will anger the gods.
    Michael Phillips
    Chicago Tribune

    It plays, in fact, like a movie directed by a producer, someone checking items off a to-do list rather than telling a story in a consistent tone.
    Ty Burr
    Boston Globe

    Though occasionally enlivened by Cruise's willingness to endure a nonstop gauntlet of humiliation, this is a modern blockbuster in many of the worst ways; it's noisy but rarely exciting, heavy on whizzing and whirling special effects but light on wonder.
    A.A. Dowd
    AV Club

    How meh is The Mummy? Let me count the ways. For all the digital desperation from overworked computers, this Tom Cruise reboot lands onscreen with a resounding thud. Epic fail.
    Peter Travers
    Rolling Stone

    It will be argued that this one was made not for the critics but for the fans. Which is no doubt true. Every con game is played with suckers in mind.
    A.O. Scott
    New York Times

    The film offers Walking Dead style fights and clunky comedy blatantly ripped off from An American Werewolf In London. If Universal hope to take on Wonder Woman and Iron Man at the box office, they'll have to go back to the drawing board.
    Andy Lea

    Why Scientology Hasn’t Killed Tom Cruise For Us

    By Jade Budowski, Decider


    What is it about Tom Cruise? The quintessential movie star has been leading Hollywood’s biggest movies for years, whether in award-winning turns or big-budget franchises. When his career first skyrocketed in the early 1980s, Cruise appeared to be an unstoppable force – and he remained that way. He is one of the last remaining industry A-listers who has maintained a sense of intrigue and excitement after decades of fronting films – this guy’s just got something. He lights up a screen no matter what role he’s playing, and because he’s aged so well, keeps up his electrifying charisma, and never lets us forget that he does his own stunts, the magnetic mystique of Tom Cruise is as unwavering as ever.

    For every movie star success story, there’s usually an accompanying scandalous fall from grace – and we eat up both with equal enthusiasm. It seemed only natural that some dirty secret come out about Cruise while he was on top of the world, and it did. Not just one – a slew of secrets… and they weren’t of a run-of-the-mill Hollywood scandal caliber, either. The craziest thing about what we now know about Tom Cruise is that he was outspoken about his position, and at the beginning, they didn’t seem to be all that harmful. So Jerry Maguire was a Scientologist – so what? Danny Zuko was too. For a time, Scientology was Hollywood’s hottest club – until it wasn’t.

    When he jumped on the couch and professed his love for Katie Holmes, we barely flinched. His feud with Brooke Shields (and assertion that her use of antidepressants to cure postpartum depression was “irresponsible”) may have left a bad taste in our mouths, but we kept going to see Mission: Impossible movies. The Cold War that followed a contentious interview with Matt Lauer that famously included Cruise calling psychiatry a “pseudoscience” didn’t put a dent in the performance of War of the Worlds. But when Lawrence Wright’s “Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief”came out, it seemed like the gig might be up. The untouchable Tom Cruise essentially revealed to have been complicit in the sinister, abusive underbelly of The Church of the Scientology – and perhaps even second in command to the notoriously violent David Miscavige. For those the book didn’t reach, HBO‘s documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief acted as an eye-opener to the Church’s abuses, but still – another blockbuster roared into theaters, and took home a substantial amount of dough.

    Why didn’t Cruise’s complicity lead to a boycott of sorts? A condemnation of his behavior by Hollywood peers? These alleged human rights violations theoretically should have resulted in protests and an investigation of the Church, but nothing has come of it. There’s something fishy about the whole thing – and perhaps it speaks to Scientology’s enduring industry power. Stars who are members of the Church are consistently given a pass by the media, and despite the recurring criticism of the Church in a variety of forms – television, film, and literature – there seems to be no stopping its rapid spread and domination of entertainment. Sure, it’s juicy for us to consume, but is anyone going to actually do anything about it? The answer at this current point in time is seemingly a resounding no.

    Tom Cruise, Hollywood icon and indestructible movie star, will continue to carry big blockbusters on his back as long as we let him – and it doesn’t seem like we plan on holding him accountable anytime soon. Scientology influence aside, Cruise only has as much power as we allot him, and if the last ten years of his career are any indication, we sure like to see him rule. In an industry where abuse is the status quo, it makes total sense that Cruise, amongst other tainted names, would continue to operate under his sparkly white smile and enduring charisma. This is Jerry Maguire, Maverick, Ethan Hunt we’re talking about. A man as talented as he is stunt-ready. If Scientology didn’t stop him, what will?

    Don’t change your plans to not see The Mummy

    By Sam Machkovech, Ars Technica


    ...I went into his reboot of The Mummy hoping Cruise would continue his surprising streak of floating atop incredible action setpieces and delightful ensemble casts. Not so much. In fact, Cruise is the primary reason this first entry in the Dark Universe stinks, and he drags an otherwise fine-to-solid film down to his underwhelming level.

    Cruise's smartest move in recent years has been to pass the "characters with actual personality" buck to castmates, but The Mummy doesn't afford him this luxury.


    Cruise spends most of the film smirking, shrugging, and looking quizzically at every situation he walks into, with occasional smart-ass quips that fall flat.


    Universal Studios is obviously moving forward with this cockamamie "Dark Universe" thing, but do the good parts of The Mummy bode well for the eventual follow-up? Some scenes make me believe that a crew of diehard monster movie fanatics was at work here — but someone in the production crew also thought repeated sequences of people staring at each other longingly in the desert was a good idea. (Roughly five moments in The Mummy feel like rejected perfume ads.)

    Put your blinders on for this Dark Universe.

    Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy” Takes in $2.7 Mil Thursday Night: Have Suri, Scientology Scandals Undermined Popularity?

    By Roger Friedman, Showbiz411


    Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy” made $2.66 million on Thursday night. That’s considerably less than “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” made in its Thursday outing two years ago – $4 million. It’s more though than “Edge of Tomorrow” – $1.8 million. It’s actually far more than “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” with $1.32 million – Cruise’s most recent film.

    So there’s some solace in that. But “The Mummy” will be number 2 to “Wonder Woman” this weekend. And if word of mouth doesn’t propel it past tonight, there will be a lot of jokes about mummified, it’s a wrap, walking dead, and so on.

    A big hit to the box office has a lot to do with perception of Cruise by fans. By now they all know that he has had nothing to do with his 11 year old daughter Suri, based on reports. And that may be because of his devotion to Scientology, a religious cult that has now been exposed in movies like “Going Clear” and Leah Remini’s terrific TV series. Remini also wrote about Cruise’s weird life in her memoir.

    All of these things add up over time. While the “Mission Impossible” series has carried him financially, Cruise otherwise struggles at the box office. “Jack Reacher 2” made just $58.6 million in the US. Even internationally it was a bust, with just $103 million. Cruise needs twice that to succeed on the bottom line. And apparently Scientology is always there with hands out waiting for more donations.

    ‘The Mummy’ Stays Asleep at the Box Office | The New York Times


    Blame the inexperienced director, Alex Kurtzman, for delivering a mess of a movie. Scratch that: Fault Universal for settling on a script that emphasized action over characters and campy fun. Actually, perhaps a baggage-ladden Tom Cruise was the problem. Or was it the horror-based marketing campaign?

    All of the above?

    Whatever the reasons — some analysts also pointed to the continued strength of “Wonder Woman,” which remained No. 1 in its second weekend, collecting about $57.2 million — “The Mummy” arrived to just $32.2 million in North American ticket sales. That was a disappointing start for a film that cost hundreds of millions of dollars to make and market and was supposed to stir excitement for Universal’s coming cavalcade of monster-movie remakes.

    “The Mummy,” to be followed by new versions of “The Bride of Frankenstein,” “The Invisible Man” and “The Creature From the Black Lagoon,” among others, received abysmal reviews. Ticket buyers were similarly underwhelmed, according to CinemaScore exit polls.

    Overseas, where audiences (and the news media) mostly don’t care as much about Mr. Cruise’s past foibles and ties to Scientology, “The Mummy” did much better, taking in a sturdy $141.8 million, according to comScore. Universal said on Sunday that China generated $52.2 million in weekend ticket sales, a record for a movie starring Mr. Cruise.

    Generally speaking, foreign ticket buyers are less sensitive to reviews.

    Katie Holmes To Expose Ex Tom Cruise's BIGGEST Secrets In A Tell-All | Star


    "Strong and silent" has been an apt description of Katie Holmes since her split from Tom Cruise, but is the actress finally ready to tell all about her wild ride? As her five-year deal to stay quiet about her life with Tom is about to expire in July, insiders told Star that the actress may be penning a memoir about her life. What will she say? We have all the juicy details in the brand-new issue!


    Tabloids: Inside the Cruise compound | Toronto Star



    Cover: If she’d married unremarkably, the memoir of Katie Holmes would be the sort of instantly remaindered celebrity doorstop we expect from, say, hosts of Canadian game shows. We suspect there are petri dishes with richer interior lives — but she’s the ex-bride of Tom Cruise, and Scientology moved staff into their home to watch over them, so once the gag rule in their divorce ends in July, she might get $8 million for such a book. Oh, you thought the words on the cover meant the book already existed? It’s gullibility like that that got her married to ol’ Cole Trickle in the first place.


    Katie Holmes NOT Writing Tell-All Book About Tom Cruise And Jamie Foxx, Despite Report

    By Andrew Shuster, Gossip Cop


    A new tabloid report claims Katie Holmes is writing a tell-all book about her life, which will include details about her marriage to Tom Cruise and rumored relationship with Jamie Foxx. Gossip Cop looked into the situation, and we can exclusively reveal the truth.

    The latest issue of Star maintains that as part of Holmes and Cruise’s 2012 divorce settlement, the actress signed a five-year confidentiality agreement preventing her from discussing their marriage. That supposed deal expires in July, according to the outlet, which has tempted Holmes to pen a memoir about her life.

    A questionable insider tells the magazine that the actress’s theoretical book will reveal “the role Scientology played in unraveling her marriage” to Cruise. The dubious source further claims Holmes will spill “the breaking point” that led to her divorce and the real reason why her ex-husband hasn’t seen their 11-year-old daughter Suri in three years.

    As for Foxx, says the publication’s “insider,” Holmes’ imaginary memoir will explain “the positive part Jamie has played in her life” and how the actor “helped her find love again” after her divorce. “Jamie’s attention and affection have had an incredibly healing effect on Katie,” adds the “source,” who maintains Holmes will also chronicle her early career on “Dawson’s Creek.”

    It should be noted, the tabloid declares “$8 Million Tell-All!” on its cover, but the article’s only indication of this price tag is that “insiders are predicting the book could fetch” that amount. Regardless, Gossip Cop is assured by a rep for Holmes that she isn’t writing a tell-all book about her life, and the publication’s entire report is simply “false.”

    Unfortunately, the outlet’s tall tale doesn’t comes as much of a shock. Gossip Cop previously busted Star after it published a cover star wrongly claiming Holmes was pregnant with Foxx’s baby and marrying the actor in Hawaii. Obviously, neither of those supposed circumstances ever occurred. We also recently called out the magazine’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, for its similarly false article contending Holmes would tell secrets about her marriage to Cruise. With its latest cover story, the frequently unreliable tabloid has once again been caught spreading fake news about the actress.

    'The Mummy': Tom Cruise Is a Star Adrift Among Cinematic Universes | Hollywood Reporter


    Some critics have called Cruise's The Mummy the worst of his career. Others are advising that he needs to go back to doing some character work to atone for his franchise fever. A key question that also must be asked: Why did the previously franchise-shy star join a project launching a cinematic universe in the first place?

    Let's consider recent history. While his recent box-office track record can hardly be qualified as disastrous, Cruise movies are not exactly raking it in the way that they used to. In fact, since The War of the Worlds was released in 2005, only one of his non-Mission: Impossible starring titles — 2014's The Edge of Tomorrow — has managed to cross the $100 million mark domestically (and that one just barely). Though his films still tend to do quite well in international markets, it's clear that his drawing power in the U.S. has dimmed considerably over the last ten years.

    It's easy to chalk up Cruise's relative decline to his couch-jumping antics on that infamous 2005 episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the timeline certainly fits. Thanks to several bizarre public appearances and the star's unusually-strident defense of Scientology, his public profile took a sizeable hit in the mid-2000s. It would be disingenuous to claim that didn't play a role.

    And yet with the post-Marvel paradigm shift we've seen in the last 10 years, it's also clear that the marketplace is no longer all that hospitable to stars who prefer to pave their own path. Just look at the once-Teflon Will Smith who, after suffering a series of back-to-back misfires, took a role as an ensemble player in the superhero franchise vehicle Suicide Squad in a seeming attempt to correct course.

    Like his fellow action-star/sometime-serious-actor, Cruise has also started playing the game.

    Did Tom Cruise, John Travolta and other celebrities adopt babies in “Scientology’s baby black market’ as the ‘Enquirer’ claims? Its breaking news about events 20 years ago claims that the stars adopted children through an unlicensed broker - but buried deep within the “ten-month investigation” report is an admission that the adoptions were ultimately handled by an attorney “to be done correctly” - completely undercutting the story. No black market, and nothing illegal.

    Tom Cruise Injured in 'Mission Impossible 6' Stunt | TMZ


    Tom Cruise was injured during a building-jumping stunt on the set of "Mission Impossible 6."

    The 55-year-old actor was in London Sunday when he attempted to leap from a rigging onto a building but he fell short of the mark and hit the building pretty hard.

    You see Cruise try to limp away and then collapse. He then limps back to the edge of the building and and is pulled away by crew members on the safety team.

    We don't know the extent of his injuries.

    Tom Cruise 'will need months to recover' from broken bones after smash into a wall during failed action stunt

    Movie bosses have been forced to postpone filming of Mission Impossible 6 after the actor did 'serious damage' while performing his own stunts


    Tom Cruise’s insistence on risking life and limb to perform his own stunts has backfired big time for his bosses on Mission: Impossible 6.

    I can reveal a failed roof jump has left the action movie’s main man with two broken bones in his ankle.

    His likely spell recovering from Sunday’s accident has now resulted in production being halted for four months.

    A film insider said: “The injury is worse than was at first feared. Tom did serious damage and will need months to recover.

    “He is the film’s biggest star and everything revolves around him. The movie’s bosses had no choice other than to postpone the filming.”

    Roseanne Barr Gunning For Top Scientologist Tom Cruise

    Tom's creepy peeps refuse to leave her daughter alone!

    By Mike Walker, National Enquirer


    Years back, I affectionately labeled Tom Cruise “My Favorite Alien,” but quit when he went all cult-y, metamorphosing into Scientology’s “Top Gun” Poster Boy!

    But today, Tom’s made a truly tough-ass enemy: Roseanne Barr!

    Rosey’s warning him and his clown posse of Asinine Aliens to immediately cease targeting the comedian’s adult daughter, writer Jenny Pentland!

    Revealed My Scientology Spy: “Jenny, who’s 41, recently flipped out on social media, bitching she’s begged Cruise’s Cult Creepos to stop hounding her.”

    The piches have been coming, my spy said, “Since Mama Roseanne signed her up for a Scientology course 22 years ago. They’re unendingly relentless!”

    Said Jenny: ‘Despite begging them more than 100 times to stop contacting me forever, they ruthlessly hound me with four harassing letters a week!’

  31. GibbousWaxing Member

    Sounds like the same never-ending flow of letters they send everybody who ever gave them a name and address; Cruise had nothing to do with it beyond still being in the cult.

    Gotta give the writer props for "clown posse of Asinine Aliens," though. That's got a nice ring tto it.

    Tom Cruise Needs To Undergo Scientology Counseling After Breaking Ankle?

    Mission Impossible' accident shows 'suppressive people' in his life, source says.

    By Radar Staff


    Tom Cruise will be in trouble with Scientology bosses for breaking his ankle, as it’s a sign that he has so-called “suppressive people” in his life, has learned.

    In a major case of Cruise control by his controversial religion, the star now could be told to undergo counseling, according to a source.

    Cruise, 55, injured himself while jumping from building to building as he bravely filmed a stunt for his upcoming movie Mission Impossible 6 in London, as Radar has reported. He performed the dangerous stunt last Sunday and wound up limping afterwards after landing hard. Soon, the movie actor found out he had broken his ankle.

    The daredevil star reportedly jetted home to the U.S. for treatment – and now production on the movie has been halted for up to two months. But Cruise might have a bigger long-term problem involving his faith, the source said.

    In the wake of the accident, he might face the wrath of his close friend and Scientology leader David Miscavige, said the insider.

    “According to the Church’s faith, it believes that illnesses and accidents like this come because there is a Potential Trouble Source in someone’s life,” the source told Radar.

    “A PTS comes because a member is connected to a ‘Suppressive Person,’ which is usually someone who has left the Church or is a non-believer.

    “In Tom’s case, he has a a number of supposed SPs in his life, such as his ex-wives Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, who are both Catholic and left the Church. But daughter Suri is the biggest problem, as she is now living with her mother in New York and it’s rumoured that he hasn’t seen her for over three years,” said the source.

    And according to former high-ranking member Tory Christman, who is now an outspoken critic of Scientology, it’s these influences on his life that will mean he will face a serious talk with Miscavige.

    “He might even need to go for Scientology counselling,” according to the insider.

    Christman noted, “He crashed into a building, broke something, the Church will ask, is he PTS? Yes he is. Who is he connected to that is SP? Will he get in trouble? It is a bit like you’re in trouble, you’re not a good person, because you’re a PTS – you must be connected to someone really evil if you’re PTS.

    “Breaking a bone, hurting yourself, falling, someone will be there, going, ‘That’s PTS, better go to ethics and see an officer,’ ” Christman said.

    The freak accident could cause problems for Cruise, but he still has star status which will affect his situation, he revealed.

    Christman said, “They’re connected to a suppressive person, thus, Tom Cruise crashed into a building could it be (a) he’s older so not as good at these stunts as he used to be, or (b) will they tag it into something else? They have to. They’ll do it a in a general way for him, he’ll get it a lot easier than some people.”

    In another controversy, Cruise’s former Scientology friend Leah Remini, who famously left the church and is exposing its inner workings on her A & E reality show, recently slammed the actor.

    During a Reddit AMA about Scientology, a fan asked Remini if Cruise was a good person.

    The former King of Queens star, 47, snapped, “No! Just going to get straight to it, no!”

    Remini continued, “There is a public persona of the guy who looks at you directly in the eye and shakes your hand and hugs you and is an attentive person to you and there’s the person behind the mask who is a completely different person.”

    “Someone could say we all have that — what we are to the public and who we are behind the scenes, but the people who are around Tom and work for Tom, not even people who are Scientologists, they will say he is diabolical,” Remini said.

    It’s not the first time Remini has sounded off on her former pal Cruise, as Radar has reported.

    Now, the Mission Impossible star could endure some scrutiny from Scientology, the source explained.

    As fans certainly remember, the actor injured himself while doing a stunt on the set of the upcoming Mission Impossible 6 movie. Now, we have learned that Tom Cruise refuses to properly treat his hurt ankle and it’s all because of the Church of Scientology.

    According to an insider, Cruise doesn’t want to take drugs or even just painkiller for his broken foot. Instead, he believes Scientology will cure him.

    In addition, the star even needed surgery after he broke his ankle while shooting a stunt for the film in London.

    When the accident happened, he was jumping from one building to the other and unfortunately had a bad landing.

    But according to the Church, when such accidents happen they are signs that the member of the cult is in contact with a ‘supressive person’ – a former member or someone against the religion. With that being said, they are blaming the injury on the actor.

    ‘In Tom’s case, he has a number of supposed SPs in his life, such as his ex-wives Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, who are both Catholic and left the Church,’ the source explained, adding that his daughter Suri may be an even greater problem considering he allegedly hasn’t seen her in three years.

    Last year, the faithful Scientologist even refused to send Suri a present on her birthday!

    Cruise will definitely get routed to ethics for a "PTS Handling".
    Watch for the forthcoming witch hunt that will scrutinize all his associates and employees. According to Hubbard, someone is either an active SP or is restimulating a whole track SP.

    Tom Cruise Broke His Ankle Yards From a Scientology Center

    Cruise's injury during filming delayed the production of 'Mission: Impossible 6,' but according to a construction worker nearby, the location was selected because of its proximity to "Tom Cruise's church."

    Much ink has been spilled over Tom Cruise's broken ankle and the delay in production of Mission: Impossible 6, but little has been said about where the injury took place. Cruise was filming a jump on the roof of Baynard House, an unremarkable 1970s concrete building in London's Blackfriars district. The structure sits only yards from the ornate, 19th century Church of Scientology building, which in 2006 underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation, complete with David Miscavige on hand to cut the ribbon (or, to be exact, pull a golden rope).

    According to a construction worker having a cigarette nearby as the scaffolding for the ill-fated M:I 6 stunt was being packed away, Baynard House was selected because of its proximity to "Tom Cruise's church." However, a London location scout for the film knocks back any conspiracy theories, telling THR that the location was "purely coincidental," chosen as part of a major sequence along a stretch of buildings. "Although maybe [the church] was used as a green room."

    Tom Cruise's 'fake butt' photo goes viral driving Twitter crazy: 'It might be a Scientology thing'

    Cruise's rear-end sparked frenzy after a fan posted a photo from his 2008 thriller Valkyrie on Twitter.

    Among the several controversies involving Hollywood star Tom Cruise, the latest one about his bum – or like the internet is claiming, 'fake butt' – is outright the most hilarious theory. The discussion on Cruise's rear-end began after an eagle-eyed fan posted a photo from his 2008 thriller Valkyrie on Twitter.

    Focusing particularly on the 55-year-old actor's back, the picture appeared to be from a scene in the movie, where Cruise is seen stumbling on his hands and knees with his butt facing the camera.

    Alongside the image was written, "Hello, please, I present the theory that for one single shot in Valkyrie (2008), at 5:12, Tom Cruise wears a fake butt. Observe."

    And speaking of butts, just the mere mention of Cruise supposedly filling out his pants with artificial padding was enough to send his fans crazy on Twitter. From Sir Mix-a-Lot jokes to references of social media's other favourite, the Kardashians, the range of reactions on the post was as creative as possible.
