Rosie thought she will constantly “love” the actor, but thinks Scientology is “scary.”
Rosie O’Donnell exposed she gets a sweet compliment from Tom Cruise every year, but she’s not near to the actor to ask him about “the Scientology thing.”
In an interview at SiriusXM, the former talk shower debated her forever “crush” on Cruise, which was often conferred on her so-called talk show back in the ’90s and flickered a friendship between these two; so much so, the “Mission Impossible” star constantly send her a gift on her birthday.
“He is the only person who never misses my birthday,” Rosie claimed. “In knowing him for 25 years now, he has never missed my birthday or an event in my life.”
“Now I don’t know him enough to go, ‘Hey, Tommy, it’s Ro — the Scientology thing — can we chat?'” she continued, referring to Tom’s long-standing membership in the controversial organization. “That’s not my relationship with Tom Cruise. I don’t have his home phone number.”
She further said there is a fallacy that stars all know each other, but the degree of her affiliation with Tom is the same as it was back in the day of her talk show.
“But every year, I think, ‘What a classy guy he is that he never has forgotten my birthday.’ A lot of people say to me, ‘It’s just a secretary,’ but I don’t believe that. I think he knows that in early March ‘Oh, it’s Rosie’s birthday coming up.’ And he sends me something every single year for 25 years.”
“I love Tom Cruise and I will always love Tom Cruise,” she continued. “I do not understand the Scientology religion. I think it’s a cult and it’s scary.”
The toofab.com stated, “She said that Leah Remini is “a hero for doing what she’s done,” mentioning to the actress ferociously talking against Scientology after years of being tangled with it herself. The Church, for its part, has passionately deprived of all claims made by Remini.”
