Tom Cruise’s vigilant lawyer Bert Fields has issued a statement on Maureen Orth’s not-yet-released piece about the Church of Scientology’s long-term “audition process” that yielded bride Katie Holmes.
Vanity Fair‘s story is essentially a rehash of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids, quoting the same bogus ‘sources.’ It’s long, boring and false.
We’ll reserve judgment on the media-criticism aspect of Mr. Fields’s statement until we read the piece–one that Scientology apostate Paul Haggis has said is true. But it’s interesting that no mention of legal action is made here; Tom Cruise has historically been a litigious star, filing a $100 million lawsuit against a gay porn star who claimed to have dated the Mission: Impossible actor.
