Tom Cruise/Mimi Rogers Dish From The Early Scientology Days
As you know, Mimi Rogers was the one who introduced Tom Cruise to Scientology, forever changing his life--and ours too.
Well, a source who was around that scene at the time tells me that Mimi acted as crazy-protective of Tom as Tom later did of Katie.
Swears the source:
"Mimi hung out around the set of Cocktail and kept a close eye on Tom the whole time.
"And she tried to get Elisabeth Shue to not do sex scenes with Tom.
"Mimi would say, 'Tom has strep throat. I wouldn't want you to catch that'."
The source adds:
"She acted that way around the hot women.
"Why would you do that if your husband was gay?
"He wasn't. Case closed."
When I asked the source why Mimi later made the remark about minimal sex in that household, they replied, "She lied!"
Hmm. Food for thought.
