Tom Cruise is not looking to recruit Margot Robbie for Scientology, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim, which was made in one of this week’s tabloids. We’re told it’s “not true.”
According to the new issue of OK!, Cruise is both looking to cast Robbie in Top Gun 2, as well as have her become a Scientologist. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Tom is working hard to recruit her for Scientology.” The magazine notes that with the completion of a church center in Sydney Australia, “Tom wants some big names from Down Under to be the faces of the religion there. He’s been telling Margot she can help transform the church’s image for a new generation.”
While it’s true that Robbie is Australian, she doesn’t live Down Under anymore. Nor has she for a long time. The actress lives with her boyfriend Tom Ackerley and a handful of roommates outside of London. Irrespective of that crucial fact, the tabloid is still wrong with its claim about Cruise approaching Robbie to be one of “the faces of the religion.” Additionally, the part about Cruise also asking the blonde actress to be in Top Gun 2 is a recycled story that was floated more than a year ago by a questionable webloid, and was never confirmed.
Notwithstanding all of OK!’s factual errors, Gossip Cop still looked into the report, and we’re told talk about Cruise looking to recruit Robbie for Scientology is “not true.” We’re hardly surprise by that. The publication has printed a slew of inaccurate stories about Cruise. Interestingly, just two and a half months ago, Gossip Cop busted the magazine when it contradictorily alleged in a cover story that Cruise was leaving Scientology.
