Cruise distancing from Scientology to win back Holmes
The religion has cost him two marriages and the actor is now thinking about distancing himself from Scientology.
"Now he has lost the most precious thing in his life, he sees that his Scientology beliefs may not have hurt his box office, but have ended not one but two marriages," a source said.
"He had lost Nicole (Kidman) and now his wife (Katie Holmes) and daughter (Suri). He has always used the Scientology techniques, but he has now realized they don't work in marriage," the source added.
Apparently, Holmes feared that their six-year-old daughter, Suri, would also eventually get involved in the religion and this prompted her to take the difficult decision of divorce with Cruise, People reported.
"It was a terrifying and rude awakening for Tom when Katie served him with divorce papers. He's used to feeling undefeatable and untouchable. When he lost Katie, he felt a failure," the source said.
Cruise became a Scientologist in 1990 when he was married to his first wife, Mimi Rogers, 56. The end of his second marriage to actress Nicole Kidman, 45, was also blamed on the religion.
"Tom is no longer volunteering to be the public poster boy for Scientology. You'll see he is seriously calming that down, he will head up the annual fundraisers and awards show but that's in-house. In the outside world, Tom will not be promoting the religion, he is distancing himself," the source added.
