Tom Cruise Wears His Special Gold Badge to the London Scientology Prom


Whatever happened to Tom Cruise and Scientology? Certainly he’s given that up by now, right? Wrong. Cruise was snapped on Instagram yesterday wearing his special solid gold medallion to the annual Church prom in London. A tip of the hat to Tony Ortega of course, who posted on his site after another board found the pic on Instagram. Cruise is posing with a Venezuelan actress whose manager posted the photo. Ruddy Rodgriguez either believes Xenu is waiting for her, or thinks she might be snapped with the world’s most famous Hollywood star one day at a party in London. You guess. TomCruiseLondon

Anyway, Cruise is wearing the same Freedom Medal of Valor award he got 10 years ago right before he met Katie Holmes. This means that nothing that’s happened since then– ridicule over the couch jumping, Katie Holmes, losing his marriage and Suri, etc– has ever sunk in. Not even the Miscavige Clinic for the Criminally Insane on “General Hospital.”
