You guys, Scientology is even wackier than we thought.
They don’t even think Russell Brand is qualified for its pseudo-scientific teachings and that guy is certifiably insane.
On the Conan O’Brien show, Russell, the millionaire comedian who also looks suspiciously homeless, but the kind of homeless guy who’s so disarmingly charming you have no hesitation rolling down your car window to give him some dollar bills because look at those pearly whites, revealed that his co-star Tom Cruise wasn’t quite as taken with him.
Apparently, while shooting their musical comedy Rock of Ages together last year, Tom didn’t find Russell to be so charming when it concerned the topic of his religion.
"Firstly, he's a glorious man and he's very kind and sweet," Russell prefaced, right before quipping, "That's what you say if you want to continue to work in the film industry…"
"But I was thinking he's a member of that religion called Scientology," he went on. "I thought, ‘Oh, I'm interested in that.'”
Tom, however, wasn’t.
“That man had no interest in getting me into Scientology at all," Russell said, aghast. "If there's a cult that doesn’t want me, I want to know why!"
Russell never really shys away from the press on anything, so we're sure he'll let us know if he ever does find out.
