Yesterday Vanity Fair posted an article which is in their new issue about Tom Cruise's search for a new girlfriend/wife back in 2004 and how Nazanin Boniadi became their number one choice. If you have not read the article, you should by clicking here. basically, every Scientologists who is female and an actress was brought in to an audition for what they were told was a training film. This training film just happened to ask a lot of questions about Tom Cruise. The winner was Nazanin Boniadi who I will talk about more later. She ended up dating Cruise from November 2004 through January 2005. She was told in October 2004 to break up with her boyfriend and audited everyday and asked specific questions about every aspect of her sex life. This was going to be a very important mission for her. In November she had her first date with Cruise and guessed she was going to be put into an arranged marriage. The couple slept together the night of their first date but there was no sex. The first month was fine but then by the second month everyone disliked her and she was sent away. She had signed at least two confidentiality agreements and broke one of them in Florida and was put to work scrubbing toilets and digging ditches.
Now, let me tell you about the Nazanin I know. I never knew this about Nazanin. I first met her in about December 2006 or January 2007 and we kept in touch through the end of 2007. I have to say that she could fill a book with all of the charity work she does everyday and that in her life acting is secondary to everything else. I didn't even know she was a Scientologist and I'm glad I didn't because it probably would have clouded my judgement of her. If you are ever going to really like a Scientologist, this is the person to like and admire. Amnesty International, human rights, women's rights. She stands up to Iran and the Arabic world about their treatment of women which is kind of odd considering she was going to let herself be put in an arranged marriage for her religion. She is one of the few people I have known who was trying to succeed as an actress who did not put herself first. I'm glad she didn't end up with Tom Cruise because she would not have accomplished half those things and would have just been an arm piece that was shown off in public for photos.
