We are almost as delighted as Leah Remini was to hear the remarks that Thandie Newton made about Tom Cruise when they filmed Mission Impossible II back in 2000. Tom Cruise’s costars rarely say a WORD about him because he is a powerful figure in Hollywood AND a Scientology ambassador. Thandie’s comments were not actually BAD – but you can read between the lines. She described Tom as extremely dominant – he feels that only HE knows how to do everything best. It’s HIS way or the highway. Most important, she said he “tries superhard to be a NICE person.” Apparently it’s a huge effort. Scientology demands that their celebrities APPEAR to be friendly and likeable – especially when they’re handing out Scientology literature! If Tom was so controlling 20 years ago, what’s he like NOW?
