Elizabeth MossThe Emmy nominated “Mad Men” star understands what it’s like to be a Scientologist in the public eye. “Many of my church’s stances and concepts are grossly misunderstood by the media,” she told The Advocate back in March. Moss, 29, was briefly married to Fred Armisen from October 2009 to May 2011 but is now single and available if Cruise is interested.
Catherine BellIn a 2003 interview with the Magazine of the Scientology Celebrity Centre Los Angeles, Bell revealed that she is a stage Clear. This means that she is free of unwanted engrams (the dianetics term for unwanted emotions or memories). Her dedication to the religion would perfectly compliment Cruise's staunch beliefs. Though the actress married Adam Beason in 1994, the two are separated. Perhaps a few rendezvous at the Scientology Center with Cruise will give her the push she needs to serve Beason with divorce papers.
Juliette LewisIn addition to being a film icon, Cruise is also known for going off the rails and making absurd statements. Should he date the equally (and charmingly) nutty actress, he might feel even freer to let his freak flag fly. Lewis has been arrested, attended rehab, and toured the world as a rock star. In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Lewis downplayed the seriousness of Scientology, which she began following in the late 80’s. “It’s just tools for living. It’s about understanding one’s self and others and compassion and how to communicate better and how to live in this troubled society.” ' Perhaps Lewis could convince Cruise to take a more mellow approach to his engagement with the church.
Now that the shock from the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes split has somewhat subsided, many are wondering who the actor will date next. According to a National Enquirer story cited by Gawker, Cruise's next love interest will likely be a Scientologist.
According to the site, a former church member believes that model/actress Yolanda Pecoraro is a strong candidate for the actor's next gal pal.
Tom's next marriage will be inside the church, Margery Wakefield, an expert on the controversial religion, reportedly told the Enquirer.
Pecoraro began attending Scientology courses at age thirteen and is the daughter of true believers, reports the site. According to Andrew Morton's 'Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography,' Cruise met Pecoraro at a 2004 Scientology center opening in Spain and 'fell head over heels for her.'
Despite the gossip, there is no evidence that the two are romantically linked. In fact, Pecoraro is said to be in a serious relationship. Yet if Cruise wants to date with-in the church, there are plenty of single Hollywood actresses that are devote Scientologists.
Here are five potential leading ladies for Cruise -- complete with the Churchof Scientology's stamp of approval.
