That will NEVER happen. 100% sure that's written into the prenup and divorce agreements.

I'm just about finished with the book, and now I know why Tom scaled the Burj Khalifa. Scientology gives him superhuman, godlike powers. He really believes that, according to the book. When he rescued all those people for years, changed their flat tires, etc. he literally said that only a Scientologist could do it. He said that when the COS gave him a humanitarian award for all of those good deeds.

And here I thought he did all his own stunts because he's just a daredevil with a danger addiction and/or death wish, and because he's just damn hot. Another illusion shattered. And to think I used to dream of marrying him too just like Katie. Phew. I was just a Dawson's Creek away.

Here are a couple of blogs by ex-Scientologists, including Marty Rathbun, who was one of the upper echelons and counseled Tom Cruise. A lot of frightening information here:

I wouldn't be surprised if being a Hollywood actor adds to his narcissism. Famous people are surrounded by sycophants. Also, when they succeed in something they've always wanted in a very competitive field, people's egos tend to blow up to massive proportions. Add all that to being a Scientologist, I guess you could say Tom Cruise is a wacko.

But hey, after the Oprah incident and him telling off Matt Lauer about psychiatry, shouldn't we be surprised?

Yes, all that too. That actually led to him being a prime candidate for COS recruitment. COS didn't make him a narcissist, it just magnified and intensified it. He has allegedly created revisionist history about his dyslexia, which was supposedly the initial attraction for him to the COS. He has claimed that he was literally a functional illiterate, which several classmates and teachers refute.

I don't know what percentage of the book is factually accurate, but Andrew Morton was able to publish it. I give him credit, I'd be afraid of the COS. I think Tom Cruise tried to sue to stop the book.
