Cruise Says Holmes ‘Digs’ Scientology

Tom Cruise says girlfriend Katie Holmes “digs” the Church of Scientology. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cruise says the 26-year-old “Batman Begins” actress is curious about Scientology, founded by L. Ron Hubbard.

“Yes, absolutely. She digs it,” the 42-year-old actor tells the magazine.

When asked if he’s become more passionate about Scientology, Cruise says: “I’ve always been passionate about it. I’ve always talked about it when people asked about it.”

He also confirmed there was a Scientology massage tent on the set of his upcoming film, “War of the Worlds.”

“I also had a cappuccino tent on that set. And I made sure the crews were fed well, too. And if someone wanted an assist from a (Scientology) volunteer, it was there for them,” he says. “People are curious about it — they’re always asking me about it, they want to know what Scientology is.”

In an poll, 61 percent of respondents said they liked Cruise less now after the recent exhaustive attention to his personal life, 3 percent said they liked him more, and 36 percent said their viewpoint of the “Top Gun” star hadn’t changed.

When asked by the interviewer if he’s going to propose to Holmes, Cruise whispered, “It’s gonna happen, man. It’ll happen.”
