In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter (via NYDN), Tom Cruise’s ex-publicist Pat Kingsley says she tried to get him to reel in his butt puckering love for all things Scientology and lost her job for it. Pat and Tommy Girl worked together for over 12 years and became so close they could almost finish each other’s sentences, which means Pat most likely just trailed off and let Tom finish so every other sentence she said didn’t end with “Thank God there are no gay people here“.
Pat spoke of one time the church tried get involved in the promotion for one of Tommy’s films. While Sciento tried to sneak the right hand of Xenu under the proverbial blanket for a hand job, Pat smacked it away.
“I felt that they were involved in a story that I was doing on Tom, and I said: ‘It’s not your story; it’s Tom’s. You have to step aside.’ And they did.”
But later on she said she “did have that conversation” with Cruise, 51, about “cooling it” with his religion and cautioned him not to incorporate it into his promotional work on films.
Tom eventually broke ties with Pat, saying he wanted “something different” and sent her ass to the unemployment line in 2004 and we all know the roller coaster of fuckery that followed. His version of different included couch aerobics, getting himself permanently and glibly crossed off Matt Lauer’s Christmas card list and a marriage to Stepford Katie that would go down in flames so fabulous John Travolta would try to hire it as a masseuse.
What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall when Pat mixes a little too much Bailey’s in her morning Metamucil. You know there’s more gold swimming around inside her head than Flava Flav has around his damn neck at any given moment.
