Tom Cruise is a Monster

Tom Cruise is a Monster

Tom Cruise will produce and may star in the serial-killer thriller The Monster of Florence, reports Variety.

The film is about eight grisly double homicides believed to have been committed single-handedly between 1968 and 1985 in and around the Italian Renaissance gem.

The script will be penned by Chris McQuarrie, who also wrote the screenplay for Valkyrie (Cruise‘s next big film opening Dec. 26). If the 46-year-old actor likes what he reads again, he’ll star in Monster.

    Its sad that you let your fandom of Cruise get in the way of what’s right. There are thousands of ex-members of Scientology who have spoken out about the horrors of this cult. They have nothing to do with Anonymous. Tom is being sued RIGHT NOW under the Rico statute for his involvement in Scientology. Do a little research. You’ll find it. The cult is under investigation by the FBI as well as many, many European countries who have declared it a dangerous cult. They are also a number of suits currently before the courts against Scientology. If you looked into the dangers of Scientology and what they do to people, you’d know that.

    If you want to be a fan of Cruise, that’s up to you, but PLEASE DON’T DEFEND SCIENTOLOGY unless you have done the research. If you had, you wouldn’t stick up for it. It’s quite disgusting.

    How do I know? I was born into Scientology and got out as a teenager. My life was a horror. I was made to work 12 hours a day rather than go to school. I was slapped and beaten regularly. I was denied medication for seizures, never saw my parents, and every single penny I earned was taken back by Scientology. When I got out, my family disconnected from me and Scientology’s investigative unit (the osa) stalked me, threatened me and made my life miserable.

    I am not Anonymous, but I am a critic. I do protest and I would like to get the word out about how dangerous the cult is and how many illegal things they do everyday. I know. I saw them with my own eyes.

    To you and all the other fans: Think about what you are saying. This is a serious situation that has ruined the lives of many people. Don’t be casual about it and don’t stick your head in the sand. Scientology is BAD and it’s only now that lawsuits are being filed and the truth about COS is coming out in the open.

  • defap

    Don’t worry. Reliable news sources also work their butts off to make money. I’m sure I’ll get my news immediately about Tom getting sued and a verdict of guilty of harassment, assault, fraud …anything of being an as hole, or even significant percent of scientologists getting such verdicts.

    Sure I won’t happy to see Tom found guilty of any crime. I like his movies.

    I also see some really bad “Christians”, but I don’t hate other Christians. Same goes to Catholics, Buddhists, Muslims and scientologists…

  • magic

    Tom is the main attraction of Tropic Thunder and the big asset why the movie is a hit….

  • Someone who knows

    My goodness. You’re a very cold person. Very, very cold. Maybe you are already a Scientologist. You talk like one.

    So if other religions are wrong, it’s OK for Scientology to be wrong as well? That’s a really twisted view of the world.

    Because you “like his movies” you are willing to accept the fact that he shills for and donates millions of dollars a year to a criminal organization. I think that’s pathetic. You have no conscious. Of course there are bad people in every religion, but the difference is that the scripture of other religions does not teach you to lie, steal, cheat, attack others, hate minorities and the handicapped and tear apart a family if they disagree with Scientology. Scientology scripture teaches all those things. Where in the bible or Koran are those teachings? That’s right. It’s not there.

    You’re a very sad person if you have no concern about those things. Sad and selfish. Thousands and thousands of people are suffering because of Scientology and what does Tom Cruise do? He gave them 5 million dollars last year (10 million the year before) to make sure they keep it up. Tom knows about these abuses, yet he allows it and supports it. Can I prove it……YES!! He is an OT VII and has learned about each of the abuses I mentioned, yet he stays IN.

    Thats not the kind of man I could admire. Again. Do your own research. Everything I am saying is TRUE.

    You should be ashamed of yourself for supporting that just because you like a man’s acting. You should be ashamed of yourself for making light of my post and you should be ashamed of yourself for opening your mouth when you are NOT educated about a serious situation.

  • defap

    why don’t u sue, if what u said is true????? where is the verdict????? name calling reflects yourself. looks like a Liars.

  • defap

    I also can make up sensational stories myself.

  • sarisue

    Defap, you can’t even spell. I’d take a few English language and grammar courses before I moved up to telling stories if I were you. Just a helpful suggestion.

  • defap

    You were not me. I am OK with meself. Focus on your mission.

  • defap

    You hate Tom, then Katie, then Suri, the Will Smith and his wife, then their school, then their fans, all Scientologists, then maybe everyone who befriends with them, Wow busy, YOU should be focus on your mission and you hatred.

  • defap

    should I proofread? No, don’t care what you think of me.

  • sarisue

    “You were not me. I am OK with meself. ”


    I couldn’t make this stuff up, folks.

  • Someone who knows

    What’s obvious here is that we have an arrogant, ignorant, uncaring human being who is willing to call another a liar rather than do their own research and learn the truth. I have no reason to lie. You finally have an ex-Scientologist here telling you the facts and what to you do…..attack. Don’t want to believe me…..who cares. Do your own research. Google Scientology, read the positive and the negative and see for yourself. I’m sure you’ve never done that. Why? Because you’re a coward who is afraid that the truth will ruin your fantasy. How childish!!

    You might also want to learn reading comprehension skills, manners and how to spell before you open your ignorant mouth. You’re making a fool of yourself.

    For your information, de-whatever, I don’t “hate” anyone and never said I did. That’s your job. YOU hate. I don’t. I was abused and had my childhood taken away. I have a problem with a cult, their management and the people that promote it and donate large sums of money. If anything, knowing what I know, I feel sorry for many of the regular members of Scientology who can’t get out. I don’t pity Tom Cruise. He’s in the upper levels of CoS. He already knows what’s going on and still gives millions of dollars to them.

    You don’t care. I think that makes you an ostrich. Someone willing to stick your head in the sand and ignore injustice and hate, just so you can “love” an actor. That, my dear, is truly pathetic. Tell that to all the people who are harmed by Scientology everyday.

    You’ve just succeeded in making a giant arse of yourself by being ignorant, mean and nasty. You should join Scientology. You’d fit right in.

  • Someone who knows

    Read it and weep decrap. None of us are lying. This is what Scientology is. Not the fantasy you would like to believe.

  • defap

    love tom hate liars

  • pink

    Still the best actor out there, a good man and so handsome for his age.

  • m

    I lost my respect for Tom Cruise after watching the 48 hours mystery show about scientologists, he made a fool of himself there talking
    s h i t about psiquiatrists.
    He is mentally Fucked up, ignorant and unable to respect other ppl’s point of view and argue like a 5 yr old.

    Not to mention that his wife who used to be a cute actress now looks miserable and is forced to dress like a nun.

  • Someone who knows

    love tom hate liars


    So everyone is lying? The thousands of critics out there? The court cases? The FBI who is investigating Scientology? The governments such as Germany who have it on a “cult watch list”? L. Ron Hubbard’s own words? It’s all lies? All those things are happening. Ever heard about Operation Snow White? What about Lisa McPearson?

    Do you realize how SICK AND DELUSIONAL you sound? Not to mention angry, vicious and just plain MEAN? You’re a cruel, cruel person with no heart and no soul if you think that type of abuse is OK.

    You’re truly pathetic. If you can read those stories on and go to and NOT see how destructive and insane Scientology is, the only thing I can say is I feel very, very sorry for you.

    I hope at some point, you are able to get past your delusional fantasies, your cruelty and your anger. A fanatic like you is far meaner and far more cruel than any critic could ever be. I pity you.

  • defap

    Do u have any more ugly names to label others? Or reward your kind of people beautiful names?

    Some names are definitely bad. Like bigot, it only works if it is well backed up.
    Some names are controversial. Like “free spirit”

    Only give you one name: LIAR. Well backed up!

  • Someone who knows

    The truth hurts, doesn’t it? You are willing to call thousands of people, whole governments and US investigators liars? Um…..that sounds insane because it is insane.

    How were you able to back up the fact that I am a liar? Did you actually read the website I posted? You have nothing to prove your accusations. I have thousands of pages of court documents, stories from ex-members and the truth on my side. You have nothing.

    You’re making a fool of yourself. I have never seen someone so unkind.

  • defap

    any point to talk to a liar. no

  • Someone who knows

    LMAO @ defap!!!!!!!!!!!! “ignorance is bliss” comes to mind. Decide for yourself!

    For those who want to know, do a simple google search for Scientology. Be objective and learn what Scientology is.

    Read L. Ron Hubbard’s own words and see if you agree with them. Here’s a bit of what Hubbard teaches to get you started!

    “Rather than give psychotics such treatment it would be far kinder to kill
    them immediately and completely…”

    “ENEMY — SP Order. Fair game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.”
    “A Suppressive Person or Group becomes fair game. By FAIR GAME is meant, may not be further protected by the codes and disciplines or the rights of a Scientologist.”

    “The homes, property, places and abodes of persons who have been active in attempting to: suppress Scientology or Scientologists are all beyond any protection of Scientology Ethics, unless absolved by later Ethics or an amnesty … this Policy Letter extends to suppressive non-Scientology wives and husbands and parents, or other family members or hostile groups or even close friends.”

    “A Venezuelan dictator once decided to stop leprosy. He saw that most lepers in his country were also beggars. By the simple expedient of collecting and destroying all the beggars in Venezuela an end was put to leprosy in that country.”

    “If a person cannot be processed then that person, and all others like him, are to be disposed of, “quietly and without sorrow.”

  • Tammy

    STOP DEFAP! You are just being mean! Calling somebody a liar doesnt make it so. It looks like all the information someone who knows gave you is scaring you so you dont want to read it!!!!! Either go to the sites or dont but STFU if u dont know anything about Scientology.

    If u want to like Tom thats your business but calling people who went thru hell liars is sick in the head.


  • defap

    don’t mind be cruel to crueler people.
    You think you cheap lies can move everyone? See some Hollywood movie where a charming cruel killer suffers, You cry. I Don’t.

  • Tammy

    Why is it cruel to tell the truth? Why are you so afraid to look at Scientology objectively?

    Instead, you would rather call thousands of people liars. That’s insane!!



    So you think that handicapped people should be put into institutions instead of treated?

    Do you think anyone who disagree’s with Scientology should be “disposed of quietly and without sorrow”?

    Do you think people who disagree with Scientology should be “tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.”?

    Do you think anyone who tells their experiences in Scientology is a liar?

    Why won’t you answer any questions?


  • Someone who knows

    Forget it Tammy. It’s not worth the effort. defap is obviously a Scientologist, and not a very intelligent one at that.

    Intelligent people will look at the situation objectively and do the research.

  • Tammy

    Read and learn

  • Debba

    I’m not sure about defap being a Scientologist.

    I simply don’t believe she can read. At least not English. And maybe not quite “right” in the head, prone to delusion and rigid in her belief, no matter how unfounded, that anyone who might voice a negative opinion of Tom Cruise is a hateful liar.

    No, I don’t believe she is a Scientologist….

    …. but she’s obviously ripe for the picking! LOL. Hey, Clearwater, come and get her! We got a live one for you here!

  • Anabel

    Damn defap! You have a serious delusion goin’ on! LOL! I would like to know if you agree with that sh*t Hubbard said too. “Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt” honey!! LMAO!

    I used to be a Tom fan, but after he started acting like a lunatic on national television, I realized that his whole image was a PR show until he fired his publicist and started using his sister. He was able to hide the crazy until then.

    Now I just think Tom Cruise is a loser.

  • defap

    Find Lawyers, cry to them, Prove your point in court, almost everyone fights in court for money and dignity Unless Liars who will definitely lose.
    Lies won’t work. Defamation is worse than me no crying on lies.

  • Someone who knows

    Prove your point in court

    We have fought in court and we are continuing to fight. RIGHT NOW Tom Cruise is being sued under the Rico statute in the US regarding his involvement in Scientology. Germany has dozens of cases going on, and dozens of cases have been heard and one in the US. Many people have sued and many more are coming forward to sue.

    MANY CRIMINAL CASES ARE GOING ON RIGHT NOW including an FBI investigation. Which part of that are you NOT understanding.

    If anyone want to read about the various court cases, go to Many are there to be read.

  • Jo

    Thanks for the links “someone”. I’ll be reading them carefully.

    I wonder why defap doesn’t answer the questions about whether she agree’s with Hubbard? It sure sounds like she does, but Debba may be right. Maybe she’s just really screwed up in the head.

    Anyone who agree’s with what Hubbard said is a bigot and a really bad person.

    Oh and defap… should learn the meaning of defamation. “someone” is providing links to real information and asking that everyone see for themselves. Thousands of people cannot be lying.

    Its kinda pathetic that you are so in love with Tom that you attack thousands of people without learning what Scientology is really about. You’re afraid to learn the truth about Tom and I guess I can understand that if you are completely hung up on somebody, but it’s not an excuse to go on and on and attack people.

  • Mike

    defap is F*CKED UP. He’s probably the same one who posts the “I love Tom and Katie” sh*t all over the place here. I dunno if he’s a scientologist but if not he’s one giant loser. lol

    defap get a life and a reality check or learn to read. If you had any brains you would shut up. You’re a moron! lol

  • Christian



    He’s a cult freak. You should just go away and hide now. You just made an idiot of yourself.

  • Lydia

    Dayum! Did y’all read that shiz over at!?!?!? Court papers, survivor stories, stuff from the founder of Scientology, all there different levels, how much scientology cost (half a million buckaroos). That’s one f’ed up cult!

    Some people like defap are gonna run from this shiz no matter what. They’re so up Cruise’s a** that they are scared to look at what he is involved in. Its brainwashing and sick shiz!

    Cruise ain’t all that. He acts the same in every movie and he’s in a cult. He’s not worth the money you pay to get in a movie. Plus his wife is some kinda robot. LMAO! After reading xenu, I feel sorry for his kids. They have no choice.

  • defap

    What?! Everyone who dares to challenge your accusations and your hatred against Tom has to suffer from NAME CALLING, INSULT and BEING TRAPPED IN ARGUMENTS? Anything else?

    Fight harder. I’ll know your “good news” if you can remove “the biggest Liar” from Hollywood.

  • defap

    By 1) name calling, 2) insult, 3) wasting his/her time through trapping him/her in arguments 4) more?, You try to silence all disagreements, all doubts about Un-proven allegations against Tom. No photo, no other proof, no nothing from RELIABLE sources. Wow, “brilliants Ideas”!!!

    All we can see is that the biggest “crime” that Tom has ever committed so far is couch jumping.

  • To Someone who knows

    So, you are bigot. We got it!!!
    So, you stink with Nazi minded propaganda. We got it!!!
    Instead of keeping hours your ass bloging here, get a live looser.

    BTW, all your nasty propaganda is nothing to do with Tom and Katie. They are Americans and have right to believe.!!!

  • Debba

    defap, what the h e ll are you even talking about? Do YOU even know? You haven’t provided one coherent or intelligent argument yet. You’re either ignoring the other posts or you simply don’t read very well.

    Unproven allegations? You’ve been provided link to investigations, criminal proceedings and court judgments against the organization Tom funds with all his money. If you think the FBI isn’t a reliable source then I’m really curious what is. LMAO…

  • Debba

    “get a live looser”

    I’m curious as to where one would get a “live looser”? And I wonder how much they go for?

  • Lydia

    BTW, all your nasty propaganda is nothing to do with Tom and Katie.

    The point you are conveniently missing is that Cruise is the one who spoke about how wonderful Scientology is and how “they are the only ones who can help” and that he hopes everyone else “ends up in the history books”. Tom called Psychiatry a “Nazi Science” He also donates millions of dollars to them, so EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS THREAD HAS TO DO WITH TOM. Are you going to deny the words that came directly from Tom’s mouth because it doesn’t fit your fantasy.

    “Someone” didn’t “trap you” into anything. You kept going on and on with ignorance while he provided FACTS with links to sites where they can be found plus his own experiences. Rather than read the information, you attacked him and you deserve what you got back in return.

    I see proof of everything “Someone” said on the internet. All you have to do is a simple search for Scientology where you will find court documents and investigation resports. All I see from you are unintelligable posts, ranting, raving and generally acting like a spoiled, ignorant child.

  • Good victoria

    LOL…LOL…LOL…LOL…LOL…LOL…,,,,,,,,,,,, ok, let me pick myself up off the floor and TRY to comprehend DEFAP……. and the saddest denial I have ever seen anyone try to ignore…… I’M probably one of the BIGGEST Katie and Suri fan’s around……Always have been…..AFTER watching some of these video’s ( THANKS, “”SOMEONE WHO KNOWS “”), AND OTHERS, how could anyone STILL try to defend Tom Cruise………..You guys need to go back to other Katie sites, and “”Suri eyes wide shut “”, and read what is going on with my friend, who has claimed to have met, an “”ex-minder”", who got out of the cult……… BUT, of course, DEFAP, might just say the same thing to me,,”"”" YOU ARE LYING HONEY CHILD”"”…….” DO NOT BELIEVE YOU AT ALL”"”.,,, WHICH IS FINE WITH ME………This story is way too odd and different to have been “made-up”"….. YES, I love Katie and Suri, BUT, I feel they are trapped and are helpless to to do anything about it……………The more I read about Scientology and watch the video’s the worse it gets…………….I NEVER knew anything about Clearwater, Florida, ( horrible), and I wonder how long these men ( or creatures ) will have to spend in prison………………WHAT has happened to Hubbard’s sons???? Could not find out anything on his children…..I heard that one of his sons, thought he was a looney-toon, and later took his own life……………People said he was really screwed up by his father when he died, for taking away his childhood and his friends………………….ANY TRUTH TO THAT ”SOMEONE WHO KNOWS”? AND to DEFAP, I have come around and changed my mind on Tom Cruise….AND I admit it to my friends here,,,,,,,DALE…..DANCER…..RESCUE59….MAV….and to THE CREATURE OF THE BLACK LAGOON…………..Katie and Suri will be my favorites and the ones to keep posting on…..BUT, TOM is a different story…I have researched this online and read everyone’s comments for months, AND watched video’s after video’s…………………His family I believe is trapped in this, and I don’t think Katie knew the extent of his Scientology Worshipfulness, until it was too late……………..SURE, I’m aware that Katie was TOLD, about what to expect, BUT, she was in love with a “”handsome Top Gun movie star “”" ( her words )……She still had a poster of him on her bedroom door in her childhood home, she stated…………….. THAT is almost like a puppy-love, mushy thing, that really took her by surprise……AFFECTION by Tom Cruise, and he acting “”giddy and in love”" just for her……( her words )………………SHE NEVER SAW IT COMING…………….THE WHOLENESS OF SCIENTOLOGY, AND HOW IT TAKES OVER A PERSON’S LIFE…………………NOW, she is in and with his child…………………………..I feel sorry for her, and YES I do think ( from the last site ), that she is depressed……..Poor Katie and Suri !!!

    “Lions for Lambs TANKED.”

    This movie tanked because it sucked, not because society has changed into a TC hating machine. Did you even watch it? Also, war/terrorism/9-11 movies have been doing horrible at the box office in recent years. Speilberg’s “Munich” bombed, even though it won oscars. Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center” was a huge bomb. Angelina Jolie’s “A Mighty Heart” did poorly.

    “IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH” (budget 23 million?) only made 6.7 million domestic (29 million overall) and I remember it to be a much, much better film.

    ‘STOP-LOSS’ this year did WORSE (10 million domestic + 1 million worldwide) with a 20 million dollar plus budget .I could go on, but I see you get the point.

    Lions for Lambs was a talky political, left leaning film about the Iraq War…it was destined to tank financially.

    Its BIGGEST failing and humiliation is that it failed to achieve any critical acclaim.

    Here is my argument: Tom Cruise’s weird behavior occurred in 2005. Specifically, the Matt Lauer interview and the Oprah incident. “War of the Worlds” came out directly after those events and made half a billion dollars. Moreover, unlike Lions for Lambs where TC has relatively little screentime, Tom Cruise is ALL OVER the War of the Worlds. He is in nearly every single scene. But hey, don’t let something like the facts get in the way of a good delusion!

    “Valkyrie will (tank) too and so will every other movie Tom does. ”

    People don’t seem very very interested in seeing WWII movies anymore……remember what happened to “Flags of our fathers” and “Letters from Iwo Jima”?

    Hopefully Valkyrie does well though…..

  • sarisue

    You fail to mention that Tom also produced Lions for Lambs, so, yeah, he kind of WAS all over it. It was the first movie out of his big new studio take-over and it tanked. Valkyrie is the second one out, and is surrounded by a lot of bad buzz and bad predictions. There are many movies with great Oscar buzz being released at that time and already being talked about. Valkyrie isn’t even on a “maybe” list.

    Tom produced AND starred in Lions for Lambs, so the success of that film falls more on his shoulders than anyone. (And for some very curious reason—though there is plenty of interesting speculation—Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, two legendary Hollywood icons, gracefully declined to make appearances at the premiere with him.)

    And the fact is, it’s been widely reported that many insiders believe War or the Worlds could have done better. It was a Speilberg big budget, special-effects laden film released in the summer months, so it was a no brainer that it would make money. But it fell short of expectations. Wonder why? Speilberg himself wasn’t too happy that Tom decided to use the film’s promotion to promote his religion instead. Don’t hold your breath waiting for those two to ever pair up again.

    Sorry, but just because you choose to spin the story in favor of Tom Cruise doesn’t make the other side of the argument “delusional”. You conveniently left out some facts.

  • Lana

    Lauren’s comments above are exact quotes of something said by someone called drwomb on IMDB. He is a Scientologist who has anything he doesn’t agree with on IMDB deleted. Think I’m lying? Go to IMDB and search drwomb. WE ARE TALKING EXACT QUOTES HERE.

    The Scientologists are out in force on these threads doing their best to attack anyone who has a problem with Cruise and spin the fact that Cruise is no longer respected as something positive. It ain’t happening people. Cruise is a laughingstock.

    Back in the day, Lions for Lambs would have done decent business just cause Cruise produced it and was in it. NOT ANYMORE. Those days are gone. People know that Cruise is crazy and are not interested in seeing him anymore. It took a couple of years to sink into the public, but Cruise is OVER and his robot wife never was.

    Valkyrie will tank because no one wants to see Cruise as a Nazi. His next films won’t do well either. I guarantee it.

  • To lana

    If you are bigot, it doesn’t mean that most people are. If you hate Tom it doesn’t most people are. Yes, people didn’t like Lions for Lambs but a lot of people like Tom in Tropic Thunder.
    You should realize that bigotry is disgusting and hate is destroying your soul.

  • pathetic

    wrong Lana, Lions for Lambs did well for an anti war movie. All anti war films are not accepted by Americans but so happens Lions did well. Look at the Ryan Phillippe movie,Rendition by Reese,Theron’s anti war film etc….all did badly.
    Get your facts straight

  • God bless the USA

    All antiwar movies dont succeed and its a given even the W movie by the liberal Hollywood against Bush by Oliver Stone will also flop.

    It has nothing to do with Cruise, have Matt Damon or even Pitt do some anti war film even Depp and America wont watch.

    Poor Maggie G.

  • Ida

  • sienna

    tom you are so hot!!!rock on!

  • Joe American

    I think the fact that Tom has a pilots license would be hard to top for pure terror.
