Jennifer Lawrence made a surprising statement this morning, during an interview. The star of the Hunger Games film series claims she was offered to undergo an audition in order to become Tom Cruise’s new wife.
According to Ms. Lawrence, the prominent Scientology attorney, Kendrick Moxon, and the Chairman of the Board of Religious Technology Center, David Miscavige, approached her during a charity gala known as the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, which was held in Los Angeles on June 6.
They told me that I have been “selected for a special audition”, in the Church’s headquarters, near San Jacinto, to determine if I am “compatible” with Tom Cruise to become his new wife.
The Golden Globe winner says she rejected the offer, and seemed quite amused by the whole incident…
“Honestly, I almost laughed ! Tom Cruise is okay, I guess. He’s a bit short, but he’s good looking and he’s a great actor. If he had asked me out himself, I might have said yes. But seriously, an interview to evaluate if we are compatible? That’s just plain weird! And honestly, I find this Scientology thing a bit creepy. I’m really not into that kind of things you know… Xenu, the auditings and all that crap.”
This is not the first time that allegations come up, concerning senior members of the Church allegedly summoning women to interviews aimed at finding a mate for Tom Cruise. The actress Nazanin Boniadi , as well as the former Scientologist Anette Iren Johansen, had claimed over the past years, to have been “auditioned”, but the Church of Scientology has always denied the accusations.
In 2013, a tell-all book entitled Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison Belief, penned by Pulitzer Prize winning author Lawrence Wright, had even claimed that Tom Cruise had auditioned a host of Hollywood beauties including Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan and Kate Bosworth to be his wife, before finally settling on Katie Holmes.
Neither Tom Cruise nor the Church of Scientology have reacted yet, to Jennifer Lawrence’s claim, but it is highly probable that they will, once again, deny the allegations.
