    Huh, I didn’t know we calling people out for creating threads on topics of interest to them. You don’t care for it, move along. Why bash the thread? What harm is there in its existence?

    especially since this has been a story in a lot of hollywood circles and pretty much was covered in every single hollywood news outlet from deadline, to the hollywood reporter to variety to tracking board.

    seems like an odd topic to get up in arms about considering the attention she's gotten for once pulling out of a role because of the stuff she was talking about and then her making it a story again bringing the topic back up.

    This next question isn't one to attack, so PLEASE don't take it as such, but I'm curious to know based on the vociferous opposition to the topic... is Scarlett a Scientologist? Not saying there's anything right or wrong with her being one, but @Chaplin sometimes it seems when people involved in Scientology are talked about, it seems to rankle your feathers. Again, the question is NOT to attack Scientology or you... just trying to figure out your motivation why you have such an issue with this thread whereas most others (others who usually don't agree with each other on almost anything) see it being a normal topic of discussion.

    If it’s going to devolve into that crap then forget it.

    Apparently not. Neat story though......

    Did Tom Cruise try to recruit Scarlett Johansson to Scientology?

    The “Lost in Translation” star was expected to co-star with Cruise in “Mission: Impossible III” but was dropped because of “scheduling conflicts.” But it seems that there may have been other conflicts as well. Cruise invited Johansson to a Scientology center where he showed her literature about joining his controversial church, according to a report. “After two hours of proselytizing,” according to RadarMagazine.com, “Cruise opened a door to reveal a second room full of upper-level Scientologists who had been waiting to dine with the pair, at which point the cool-headed ingénue politely excused herself.”

    The Scoop called Johansson’s mother/manager for comment and she declined, referring us to Johansson’s publicist, who didn’t return calls or emails. Cruise’s rep didn’t respond to requests for comment, but Rick Ross of CultNews.com told the Scoop: “Is this Tom Cruise’s version of a first date? It’s becoming increasingly difficult to make distinctions between his personal, professional and religious life. Tom Cruise and Scientology seem intent on recruiting a hot young star. Apparently, Scarlett Johansson flunked her test, but Katie Holmes passed.”

    I found that too, lots of articles of her denying it though.

    You're the only one that brought up Scientology for some weird reason.

    IMO anything related to Scar-Jo is thread worthy
