Scarlett Johansson Denies 'Auditioning' to Be Tom Cruise's Girlfriend After He Divorced Nicole Kidman
The actress is lashing out at the claim by a former Scientologist.
Scarlett Johansson wants everyone to know she did not audition to be Tom Cruise's girlfriend after his split from Nicole Kidman.
A former Scientologist made the claim on Megyn Kelly's hour of the "Today" show earlier this week.
Brendan Tighe says he saw the "Lost in Translation" star's name on a list when he worked security at the Scientology Celebrity Center in Hollywood.
On Thursday, Johansson slammed the report.
“The very idea of any person auditioning to be in a relationship is so demeaning," the actress said in a statement. "I refuse for anyone to spread the idea that I lack the integrity to choose my own relationships."
The church reportedly also held auditions for suitable Tom Cruise-girlfriend material with Kate Bosworth, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner and even Lindsay Lohan.
The actresses were supposedly told they were auditioning for "Mission: Impossible III."
The Church of Scientology is refuting that report and is also refuting the claims made by Tighe.
"Brendan Tighe was a Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization security guard/night watchman from 2002 to 2009,” Church of Scientology International's Karin Pouw told NBC. “The 'access' he boasts of having was largely limited to viewing security cameras from a guard booth. He was removed from that position for dereliction of duty."
